Broke-Ass Bulletin for the Week of November 7th!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Welcome to the Broke-Ass Bulletin, a post designed to keep you up on cool shit you may have missed in the last week. Since we’ve all finally recovered from Halloween, here is some news to finally wipe off that clown mask once and for all. [No, really, do it. You’re scaring everyone.] If you have any favorite links from the week, leave them in the comments or send them to!

Dog Day Afternoon: So glad that Mission Misson got a great shot of one of my favorite dogs in the city. Always makes me feel good when I see him hanging out his window on my way to Dolores. The question is: is HE ever at Dolores? [MM]

Melty Move-In: South Park is expecting a new eatery titled The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. I’m already sold. Though it will probably cost an arm and a leg for a sandwich, here’s to wishful thinking that they’ll get a croque monsieur on the menu for around $5. [Eater SF]

Super Sponsor: Laughing Squid is now officially sponsoring Frank Chu’s 12 Galaxies sign. I couldn’t approve more. [Laughing Squid]

Corporate Conundrum: Now, I’m not entirely sure if this blog is real or a joke, but Safeway Girl definitely has me reading. I thought maybe all of her information was useless [how hard is it to read sale tags?], but she gives us a tutorial on how to shop at Costco without a card. [Safeway Girl]

Drinking, Interrupted: If you’ve been wondering why the fuck the 14 has been packed with porkers lately, the SFPD are trying out a new sting operation to try to prevent violations on MUNI. As in, tell people to stop chewing on their bagels in the morning, telling the kids to pay at the front and keeping fights from going down. Looks like the new hall monitor is getting rid of everything that makes your commute interesting. [Streetsblog]

Crafty Christmas: While Kate has you covered on almost every D.I.Y. project you could imagine, I’m really trying to think about my Broke-Ass Christmas in advance. This wreath is definitely getting made to be put on my door and this t-shirt scarf tutorial is perfect — I’m making circle and fringe scarves for all my lady friends this year. Let the amazing t-shirt hunts begin. [Bluebird Vintage, College Fashion]

WTF: Did you know bears can go bald? Well now you do. Don’t click ahead if you are eating, drinking, masturbating, mid-coitus or have a weak stomach. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. [The Awl]

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.]

    Really digging the Bulletins, keep it up! Especially love the skinny on cheap eats in the city (i.e. Ike’s, street carts, @#$! CROQUE MONSIEURS etc.)

    Was gonna tweet that, but fuck the 140.
