Man V. Food Filming today at Ike’s Place in San Francisco!!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

So there’s no reason in hell why you shouldn’t be at the Indie Mart today. Think about it: booze, great food, amazing shopping, local music to shake that thang too, great prices…and finally, Stuart and I! We’ll be kickin it, live and in your face all the way. We’ll have stickers, books, some shit to talk and maybe I’ll even sprinkle in a few hugs.

But this is where it gets complicated. I’m totally into Adam Richman.

Yes, he may not look like the most in shape, stylish dude on the block, but I love an adorable man that can devour reuben sandwich bigger than his face.

So, what does that have to do with the Indie Mart? His show, Man V. Food, is shooting TODAY at one of our favorite places to pig out, Ike’s. Shooting should start around 11 and will close up at around 2, so technically, you could be on TV AND still go to the Indie Mart.

And this is where you, our most beloved readers, can help a girl out. I don’t get paid for all the shit I do. I don’t ask for any sympathy or anything in return, and I give this operation my blood, sweat and tears. If any of you can bring Mr. Richman by our booth today, there will be free drinks, free food and much love from Stuart and I. Plus, there is no party like an Indie Mart party. Face it.
So whether you go to the filming, the Indie Mart or both, BRING ME ADAM RICHMAN!

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]

    So did you get Adam to come by your booth? I love Man v. Food and can’t get enough of the challenges. I found this site that has a bunch of food challenges that Adam hasn’t even done yet and I’m thinking about giving a couple of them a try.
