May The Flapjack Be With You — FREE Pancakes at IHOP

I have always had a fondness for the International House of Pancakes.  I said this to a friend in passing one time and he informed me it was because I’m of English heritage.  According to him, every Englishman he knows enjoys the occasional stop at the worldly griddle shack. I…

Rub Elbows With The World Series Champs at Giants FanFest 2011

Most stalkworthy. Beard. EVER. Well, my credit card bills from October (read:  playoffs and World Series month) have finally been whittled down to respectable amounts, but what with the holidays and adjusting to 2011, I didn’t realize that baseball season, while obviously not officially beginning until April, is BACK for…

Stuff Yourself With Pizza Orgasmica’s Lunch Special!

I have a thing for pizza pie, especially pizza pie from Pizza Orgasmica.  I know there’s three locations — one in the Richmond, one in the Financial District and one in the Marina — but the only one I’ve been to is on Clement Street so that’s the one I’m…

Not Recommended: Union Street Festival

Once upon a time, I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed East Coast transplant with some embarrassingly fratty friends who convinced me to hang out in the Marina one too many times. One time I heard a guy, who lived within 0.5 blocks of the bullshit nexus of the universe (Union…
