All That Glitters: An Homage to Bay Area Dreamers & Schemers

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

All That Glitters is an homage to the dreamers and schemers that make the Bay Area unique. San Francisco artist Kaytea Petro uses a homemade hibiscus ink to illustrate historic photos, lovingly depicting a bygone era. More of her work can be seen at or on her Instagram.

All the the writings were created by students at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts.

Carousel Restaurant (Doggie Diner), 1974

We are hungry for some doggies
Going there is our hobby
On a pole it does sit
With pride we look at it
A Dachshund Debonaire
Completely lacking in hair
We grab our hearty eats
Milkshakes sticky sweet
Happily sitting high in the air
Our Dachshund Debonaire

We write for busboys, poets, social workers, students, artists, musicians, magicians, mathematicians, maniacs, yodelers and everyone else out there who wants to enjoy life not as a rich person, but as a real person. Namely, we write for you.

We’re currently looking to expand our author pool. If you’re snarky, know what’s happening in your town, and good at making your fingers type out funny words, then you might be just the person we’re looking for. Email with some writing samples if you're interested. Cheers
