San Francisco: The Bottom Feeders Of Top Chef

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 20, 2008

...it pits young chefs against each other and features some of the leading culinary kings in the world as guest judges. Now in its sixth season, it is the most popular reality cooking show on TV. Every season, they do the show from a different city and this year it’s in Chicago.

San Francisco initially featured four chefs (out of a total of 16) on this season's Top Chef. As a food lover's/top restaurant town, it just seemed fitting to see that The City was so well-represented.

Well, the only problem is--the San Francisco chefs are falling off the board like flies. They... (more)

Remembering The San Francisco Earthquake

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 19, 2008

...the quake was massive. It was felt from as far north as Coos Bay, Oregon, as far south as Los Angeles and even beyond Carson City, Nevada. The city of Santa Rosa was obliterated and Stanford University was left in severe ruins.

There is no doubt that at the turn of the 20th Century, San Francisco was the major economic and social hub of the west. Even in the late 1800s, when people were headed west, the question, “Where ya goin’?” was answered with”San Francisco.” People didn’t go to Los Angeles the way they went to San Francisco. People didn’t go to Seattle the way... (more)

The Artistic Side Of This Great Game

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 15, 2008

...even a casual baseball fan, you’ll love the art and the stories behind it.

Many other very well-known local San Francisco and Bay Area artists will have their baseball images in this world-famous exhibition.This year's theme – Building a Team – refers not just to the coach's task of choosing a roster to play the game, but also to the curator's task of bringing together talented artists from all... (more)

Spring Time In San Francisco: Drums And Slip-N-Slide

By Digidave, published on Apr 14, 2008

As you can see from the video above - the weather in San Francisco this weekend was.... breathetaking. I am not an "active" person, but I couldn't resist the outdoors. On Saturday afternoon, after some spring cleaning, I hoped on my bike and headed to Golden Gate Park. Specifically "hippie hill" which is the open field just beyond the Haight street entrence to the park. It is a haven for gutter punks, burnouts, frisbie throwing hippies, music lovers and people like myself - who just love watching it all go past them.

Later that night I went to Dolores park with some friends. Since the... (more)

Obama Alienates Middle Class

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 13, 2008

... just hasn’t done it a lot yet. I have already criticized McCain on McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy. He’s a politician and he’ll screw up again and when he does, I’ll come after him.

But back to Obama. On April 6, Senator Obama stood before a crowd at a private fundraiser in San Francisco and made the following statement:

“[I]t’s not surprising, then, that [people living in areas hit by job losses] get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their... (more)

My First Stalker!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 7, 2008

...But, here is what they wrote:

“I know a lot of you are wondering “what’s up with f-----g Broowaha lately”? Well I’ll tell you, Ed Attanasio just can’t stop writing about everything from the San Jose Sharks to what’s the best hot dog in San Francisco. He’s like a serial killer with a sharpened wit and nothing to do but blog.

Our sources have discovered that Ed’s bloggfrenzy could be a due to the fact that he’s in an insane asylum and has access to a computer. One of our sources at a MAJOR MENTAL INSTITUTE has... (more)

California Assemblyman Wants To Tax Internet

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 6, 2008

... when George Herbert Walker Bush was elected president the tide began to turn because of the increasing amount of liberalism coming from California. Fortunately, the rest of America is a bit more conservative than California so many of the ultra left-wing wacko ideas that crawl out of the San Francisco-Berkley Pot Smokers Association usually don’t get passed Carson City, Nevada.

One thing, though, that is very prevalent across America is this notion that the government needs to provide cradle to grave entitlement programs. All of these programs cost money and in order ... (more)
