Dispatches From the Road: Getting Sloppy at Toms Leather Bar and la Esquina del Chilaquil

  My last day in the DF and, like so many mornings in this town, my eyes open to a criminal hangover. This cruda is beyond, and, suddenly, the cantina hopping and hanging in Toms Leather Bar until 4 am seem less legitimate without the strength of Ron Bacardi’s fortified

Nite Owl: Noche de Muertos In the Foothills

The weather has been indecisive since the day I arrived and today is no different. Heavy oversaturated thunderheads lean on the craggy edges of El Mordor: Mexico City. I’m not sure if it’s lightning I see in the corner of my eye, or my espantos arriving uncharacteristically early. Still, no

Last Call Carriages From the All-Star Cafe

Nite Owl My head is pounding. I’d gone straight from work, to the gym, to yet another hijacked political meeting and finally a rather awkward, albeit surrealistically humorous event entitled San Francisco Political Squares. It was cute, well constructed and everyone was trying their damndest to channel Paul Lynde (or

Don’t Miss the Last Sunday Streets of the Year with Stuart!

Of all her gowns, San Francisco, looks her most enchanting, perhaps in the early days of autumn. The days of the Indian summer are dry and hot, but cool to nights perfect for t-shirts that we never get during the “real summer” everyone else experiences. The city turns into a

BAS Folsom 2015 In Pictures! (NSFW)

Folsom 2015, as the interwebs predicted, the city is just a box glazed old-fashioneds in search of an emergency pastry chef. As the denizens of the Barbary Coast resume solid food diets and start to emerge from the week- long coma just in time for Castro Street Fair, Hardly Strictly this weekend, and Fleet Week and Italian Heritage Day next weekend. SWEET FUCKING CHRIST, SAN PANCHO!
