It's Alive!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 14, 2009

... running, $10–$12, and entrees going for $12–$20. I’ve paid a lot more for food that wasn’t even half as good as what you’ll encounter at Alive!

They also have an extensive, very smart wine list at Alive! The restaurant has Chris Tavelli, Yield Wine Bar, San Francisco as their wine consultant, and he’s one of the best in the Bay Area, so you can be certain that the list is extensive, deep and top-tier in every way.

The most amazing thing is that EVERYTHING we ate was 100% raw. The freshness of the ingredients coupled with the astute flavor ... (more)

Micro Loans For Journalists

By travelingseth, published on Apr 13, 2009

Hey Broo.  So I was on Digg.com the other day, and who do I see on the oh-so-important Digg homepage?  DigiDave, aka Broo’s San Francisco editor.  He was promoting his new journalism startup nonprofit, Spot.us; the most brilliant freaking idea I’ve seen in a long time.Basically, it’s  micro-lending applied to investigative journalism.  People go to the site, browse pitches, and “micro-fund” (donate whatever amount they want), to fund articles they want written; typically on an issue your failing local paper can no longer afford to cover.  If the story gets funded, spot.us tries to sell the... (more)

2nd Annual Brazilian Film Festival

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Mar 16, 2009

...

Los Angeles-Americans have been in awe, intrigued and inspired by Brazilian culture for a long time. There is a large vibrant and thriving community of Brazilians in California thanks in part to the large influx who have settled into Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Francisco. We can enjoy Brazilian cuisine, martial arts, dance, music, art and get a dose of Carnaval and a full range of Brazilian cinema (animation, documentaries, featured films and short films).

The 2nd Annual Brazilian Film Festival 2009 was held on March 12-15 at the Landmark Theatres... (more)

Vanishing Point

By DLFerguson, published on Jan 30, 2009

...the best movie cars in history: a supercharged 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T that should be considered a co-star.

Kowalski (Barry Newman) is a professional driver who transports cars from one place to another. He delivers a car in Denver and insists that he needs to get to San Francisco as soon as possible. The Dodge Challenger has to go to San Francisco and despite the fact that he’s had little sleep, Kowalski takes the car. To help him stay awake Kowalski looks up drug dealer Jake (Lee Weaver) and scores a whole bunch of speed. For reasons that are still not... (more)

Broowaha Connections. In The Flesh

By travelingseth, published on Jan 21, 2009

...Philip Sherwell, U.S. editor of the Sunday Telegraph (a major UK newspaper).  He’d found my Broo article, ‘Another Drug To Be Scared Of: Salvia’, while googling Dr. Mendelson, the director of the salvia study I’d participated in and written about in my article.  He was coming to San Francisco to interview Dr. Mendelson for a story on salvia, and wanted to interview me while he was here.  Wow.  Old media meets new, in the flesh!  How could I say no?

I suggested we meet at Kilowatt, a Mission dive bar.  Over several rounds of beer, we had a really interesting... (more)

Requiem For A Dream: The Decline Of American Values

By john robertson, published on Jan 18, 2009

...how does all of this hoity toityverbiage apply to today's voter in plain, simple English?

Well, let's turn the tables and pretend the gun hating liberals got together to change the constitution against the minority of conservatives in the state. I can most likely stand on corners in San Francisco, Hollywood, Santa Cruz and Berkeley and get enough signatures in just one week to put a proposition on the ballot barring all citizens inCalifornia from owning firearms. However, even if it successfully passed, (which it probably would) the courts would be forced to overturn it because it... (more)

No, You're Not Drunk!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jan 4, 2009

There is a guy who has been walking through the Marina in San Francisco recently with his very own small circus. It’s a fascinating sight that snarls pedestrian traffic and draws a crowd wherever it goes. It’s one of the strangest things I’ve ever witnessed and I can’t help but write about it.

The best way I can describe it is a cat and two rats on top of a dog. I know that it sounds like something out of a Dr. Seuss story, but it’s true. The dog is a Rottweiler Lab mixand on his back he is carrying a American Tabby. Draped around the cat’s neck are... (more)

Let The Sun Shine, Toyota Declares

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jan 2, 2009

... a car that will run solely on solar. Both vehicles will take several years to design and build, but the sun will be around for awhile, so it’s a win-win.

Sales of the Prius are still huge, but not as high as they were last summer when gas prices spiked through the roof. Here in San Francisco where I live, pro-green residents gobbled up Priuses like jelly bellies or iPods. I saw a guy the other day trying to open the door of what he thought was his Prius, until he noticed that his (same color and year) was parked a few spots over. Consequently, a lot of Prius customization... (more)
