Cheap/Awesome Hostel at Point Reyes

While traveling during my semester abroad in college, I was totally amazed by and mildly obsessed with hostels.  The cheap, Broke-Ass friendly lodgings were always awesome in my experience, and even horror stories of drunk strangers urinating on a friend’s luggage didn’t phase me. Upon my return to the states,

Paramount Theatre Tours – World’s Best Haunted House

If you’ve never been to the Paramount Theatre, read Christy’s recent post that describes just how rad that place is. It is, by far, my favorite Bay Area venue. I’ve been wanting to do this, and post about it, for years, but I keep forgetting. Thankfully, I was reminded by

Berkeley’s Beehive Market Every Saturday

The newest addition to Berkeley’s already abundant series of farmers markets is the Beehive Market, a market with seemingly younger, hipper, and better-looking patrons. But this is how most Bay Area food events seem to be evolving. It used to be the scruffy, bearded old-timers buying and selling kale, but

The Great Beach Debate, Part 2: An East Coaster on West Coast Beaches

So, you’ve seen what Laura S., an East Coast native, had to say about East Coast beaches, but I’d like to offer my perspective, a San Diegan transplant to NYC, on the beaches of California (mostly Southern- as opposed to my analysis of the Long Beaches of Long Island and

The Great Beach Debate: East Coast vs West Coast

Having recently traveled to Hermosa Beach in California, and consecutively attempted to hit up all of New York beaches, I feel like each has something to offer. These two coastlines couldn’t be more different, and that’s mostly because of the people who flock to them rather than the physical landscape

FREE Appetizers at Sugar Lounge

I discovered Sugar Lounge after they turned me down for a bartending job, which was my first indication that these people know what’s up because I was grossly under-qualified for that position. This place is probably the best happy hour spot I’ve found in the city. They have $3 beers

Cheap Drinks at House of Shields

Last Wednesday night, after Broke-Ass Team San Francisco lost the INFORUM‘s “New Face of San Francisco Media” award to this guy (whatever — we’re gracious enough to admit he deserved it), and after we ate all the hors d’oeuvres and tapped the keg, we made our way over to House

Heart — A Cheap San Francisco Wine Bar

In college, I learned that drinking wine out of a mason jar was socially acceptable. Unfortunately, that habit didn’t translate well in my post-grad life. Real adults think jars are tacky — although, I’m willing to concede that this might just be a San Francisco thing since a lot of
