PCE Release Party

August 20, 2009

Porkchop Express’s Fault Lines & Good Times just dropped, and Thursday night’s CD release party was a rockin’ good time. Rumor has it they will be the first opening band for Def Leppard’s SF/Mtn View show, along with Cheap Trick and Poison. THAT would be HUGE.

It's huge!

It's HUGE!

Did somebody say, “PILLOW FIGHT?”

February 14, 2009

The Great San Francisco Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight started not too many years ago with just a handful of friends who told a handful of friends. Today it’s grown into a tradition for thousands of kids of all ages from all over the SF Bay Area as an alternative to the commercial lovefest honoring St. Valentine, or “foreplay” for the romance (or debauchery) that lies ahead for many couples who want to let off some steam before a big night out (or in).

Pillow Fight for Peace 2009 will take place in San Francisco at Justin Herman Plaza  (Market St & the Embarcadero). The official whistle will blow at 6pm. There are a few rules, like BYOP. There is no official dress code. Some come out in pajamas, others dress formal, and some brave few wear next to nothing.

Just looking? You may want to head over to Sens restaurant/bar for an awesome view of all the action. After the action, head over to 83 Proof for their Valentines Schmalentines party.

Hot dawg!

Any SF natives recognize these puppies? There were three giant Doggie Diner heads in a big red wagon parked across from Java Beach over the weekend.

Corner of 45th & Judah

They painted this wall mural on the outside wall of this new restaurant opening up where vegan Feel Real used to be on the corner of 45th & Judah. It’s at least 8 or 9 feet tall.

Enough to ruin your buzz

June 14, 2008

On the way to Thieve’s Tavern, we stumbled upon something so heinous we lost our buzz. A hefty bag and a Nordtrom shopping bag were found containing dozens of naked Cabbage Patch Kids on the Dubouce sidewalk just below Valencia. By the apparent Xavier Roberts signatures on the tushies of these victims, they were authentic CPKs, some of them still preemies. Even more shocking was finding a light blue Care Bare in the middle of it all.

Said a passer by…

Who would steal Cabbage Patch Kids clothes, then turn around and throw the babies out with the bathwater? It makes no sense to me whatsoever.


Friday the 13th self-portrait

June 13, 2008

Je parlais avec la cousine de Julz à Montréal au sujet de mon voyage. Ma partie préférée de la ville est la rue St. Catherine. Aux restaurants, je dirais à la serveuse, “Merci mon petit poulet.” Après qu’ils me frappent à ma tête avec le menu. Et je dirais le taxi driver me porter à la maison de Celine Dion maintenant. Vite. Rapidment. S’il te plais. 

Table for two

June 6, 2008

Bubble Lounge  >  Kells  >  Chow  >  Pilsner

Don’t ask me how all of us managed to fit at that table for two…

Bubble Lounge – Pink champagne and oysters loosens up the tightest crowd. It also puts lead in your pencil.

Kells – The Irish Catholic in me always likes it.

Chow – Pork chops and polenta are good, but nothing beats talent in a Tattoo You t-shirt.

Pilsner – Throwing back Hoegaarden while playing pinball is a ridiculous way to end the most nervous night.

944 clicks at MR. while JULZ clicks triples

May 23, 2008

MR. is a bar/barbershop in the SF FiDi. Not your typical barbershop like Russ’s in Mill Valley. MR. is a fancy bar with a full service hair salon in the back, shoeshine stands on the way to the toilets, and massage and nails upstairs. I could be wrong about upstairs—I never went up there. And in the main front room is a lounge with a two-tender bar that serves only beer, wine and champ. Nothing hard. Food? All I saw was white on rice.

Personally, after work I like stalking bartenders that will make a margarita in my mouth. And when I’m having my back shaved, I like my Jack and Coke. And for you ladies… while MR. will serve you at the bar, they will NOT do your hair. Boys rule only.


FiDi=Financial District. Three years in SF, I’m just now learning the stupid lingo. DYL=Destroy Your Liver. Who yelps up this garbarge? Gimme a break.

Now on to JULZ. Julz is this groovy NB chick that knows her SOX. According to US Magazine, we never dated… we just “hooked-up” from time-to-time. I now know her as the party-photog that likes to frame three people in every click.

Snake Whiskey… it changed my life.

Nothing ventured nothing gained

Nite and day
Black beach sand to red clay
The US to UK, NYC to LA
From sidewalks to highways
See it’ll never be the same again
What I’m sayin’
My mind frame never changed
’til you came rearranged

(Lyrics lifted from Mel C and Lisa Lopes)

Monday nights at 83 Proof

March 25, 2008


Monday nights at 83 Proof are the best. Especially when Juan Jeremy shows up. He’s always cranking his manual video camera looking for the next big star. He’s ridiculous!
