El Super Burrito

While some Mexican food restaurants have fancy and romantic names like El Farrolito or Taqueria Cancun, the people at El Super Burrito said, ‘œFuck that! Let’s have our name tell people exactly what we do; we make big motherfucking burritos. That’s what we do!’ It’d be like a clothing store

Club 65

The sole reason I went to Club 65 the other night was to find out whether or not a certain man existed.  Apparently more of a fixture at the bar than a patron, ‘œThe General’, as he’s called, is rumored to be an ancient one eyed creature, with great big

The Mauna Loa Club

So here’s the skinny.  This is one of those places that has the potential to be one of the great dives in the City, but then has one major shortcoming.  The Good:  The bartenders here are amazing at making drinks and being nice people.  The interior looks like someone was

Hua Zang Si Buddhist Temple

I like to wander.  It’s really one of my favorite things to do. You know, just kinda going for a walk and seeing what kind of cool shit I come across.  Well for awhile I always noticed this humongous red church on 22nd St and it reminded me of some

Grandma’s Saloon

Grandma’s clientele mostly consists of old people, poolsharks and pukers.  Patches from police, firemen and paramedics line the wall behind the bar while an old mid 80’s video game keeps a silent vigil over a dismal scene.  I hope I’m not drinking in places like Grandma’s in 30 years.  It’s

Isotope Comics

Isotope might be the only ‘œComic Book Lounge’ in the world and it’s definitely the only one in the City.  Seriously, who thought a comic book store could be so cool?  Unlike most other comic book stores which are generally cluttered and small, Isotope is a big open space, with

Frank Lloyd Wright Building (aka VC Morris Gift Shop)

Frank Lloyd Wright is probably the most famous and inventive American architect.  Real architecture folks might not agree, but I don’t really care about their opinions.  His work is known for blending into its surroundings to make the structure look like it occurred naturally.  Although he designed many buildings and
