The Costco Food Court — The Holy Grail of Cheap Eats

Some lucky assholes have parents who buy them  Costco memberships just for the hell of it, but I’m not one of those lucky assholes.  Rather, I am a young broke-ass who refuses to pay $100 a year for a membership to anything, even if that membership includes FREE samples and

What’s Up Dog; Or, What’s Up, Cheap Lunch?

It gets expensive eating out if you work in SOMA; restaurants jack up their prices because there are so many suits around taking their clients to lunch. Sometimes I avoid eating lunch all together just so I don’t feel like I’m getting robbed. But after some choice hot dog food

$1 Jell-o Shots, Animal Behaviour and $100 to the newest CHICKENBEAR at the Powerhouse July 4

‘œAre you bummed that there isn’t a San Francisco Street fair that specifically targets your metaphoric internal homo animal designation? Are you sorta chickeny? Fox-curious? Wolflexible? Does leave you lukewarm? Are you a Turkey Vulture? A pigasus? A bearacat?’ So say Walter Gòmez and Mica Sigourney of CHICKENBEAR. Sounding

House of Shields Changing the Guard

An old bar closing never ceases to sadden me.  Many of my favourites are now just ghostly vapor in my delirium-addled memory.  Expansion, Ginger’s Trois, 7-11 Club– was it just yesterday we were getting frisky?  The wind cuts through my coat a little quicker now. The House of Shields has

Cheap Roses from the Crying Rose Man

I think I would give roses to more people if they weren’t so expensive. Single stems can go for up to nine bucks a pop or more, which is a totally ridiculous investment for something that’s gonna die on you in a matter of hours. I agree with the Jennifer

FREE Drinks and Snacks at Wednesday Night Photography Reception

Know what makes good photography even better? A couple FREE drinks. But you knew that already, didn’t you? Inject some culture into your post-Memorial Day weekend life (i.e. do something worthwhile to make you forget about that 19-year-old Santa Clara sophomore you made out with after losing several consecutive flip

The Snack Depot: SOMA’s Best Kept Secret

I’m really big on deluding myself into thinking that I don’t need to turn to 7X7-esque resources to find the best stuff to eat in my neighborhood. I think I can sniff out what’s tasty on my own, like a bloodhound or a bulimic. I just use sites like 7X7,
