...the authors themselves. Who amongst us can't recall a Broo article that we liked solely based on El G's comment string? El G has lived in Fresno, Turlock, Stockton, Bakersfield and Barstow - a more interesting string of places than even Morgana... It looks like Ed's lived in, well, San Francisco. If it's even possible, this little exercise has caused me to read even more articles by these two than I have already (and as the statistics tell it, the rest of you have been reading, too), and I can say, without a doubt, that Ed A is the class of Broo. But, Ed's also a Lakers fan. ... (more)
How does where you live influence who/what you write about and how you go about doing it?
I like writing about San Francisco. There is so much going on here when it comes to art, theater, music and politics. I am not a very political person, so I write about things that interest me, like doing restaurant reviews, sports stories and articles about dogs, which is another one of my interests.
Your Broowaha logo, is there a story behind it?
No, I have changed my Broowaha logo several times. The photo I have now is one that I found online. It’s a little... (more)
...honestly, how can you not appreciate the moxy of a man who casts himself is his own production with such a self-aggrandizing character!? I have a ridiculous amount of respect for both of these talented writers. One one hand, you’ve got Ed, who actually makes me hate San Francisco a little less than I used to… and Steve who is cool in perhaps the hardest locale to be cool on the planet (Simi Valley). Steve’s also a guy who strikes me as being pretty handy with a chainsaw, but with no idea how to use it on trees if you know what I mean. As much as I... (more)
... until they ran head-on into a surging Colorado Rockies squad. They won’t even make the playoffs this season, in my estimation. This team is loaded with top-tier talent, with names on their roster like MVP Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. But, the departure of Aaron Rowand to San Francisco will hurt the Phils more than they probably realize. This Pete Rose throwback never stops hustling and all his teammates love him, so that fact that he’s gone isn’t good news. Philly’s pitching rotation is a case of Cole Hamels and not much else. Brett Myers will go back... (more)
It was just last season that the world held witness to one baseball’s greatest, yet most controversial feats, as Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants hit home run 756 to break Hank Aaron’s all time record of 755. Today Barry Bond’s, who was once revered as a symbol of greatness for the Giants Franchise, now is represented around the stadium no more. AT&T Park, which at one point proudly presented itself as the home of the new home run king, by placing banners praising Bond’s chase for the record on the field wall and throughout the stadium, has recently...

There is going to be a major earthquake in the Bay Area very soon. Since I live in a 4-story Victorian house in San Francisco, this is a major concern of mine. My residence was built in the 1890’s and survived both of the big ones (1906 and 1989), so I guess I’m fairly safe, but they’re saying this could be a bigger one than either of those.
We aren’t prepared for the shaker, either. We don’t have food or water stored; we don’t have a generator or a first aid kit or even have a working flashlight. I imagine we’re in the same boat as a lot... (more)

...life coaching when you can go to Vegas for a weekend? That’s all the salvation you’ll ever need. It was close for a half – but it’s Ed Attansio off to the Sweet 16.
M.B. Dion vs. Charles Harmison
Ah, the age-old battle between Long Beach and San Francisco… er… okay, so maybe it’s not so epic – but here it really comes down to recent Broo involvement – where our beloved Mr. Harmison hasn’t published since last July, and M.B. has a piece in last month. Of course, Charles is still, with this nine (9)... (more)
...whose highest rated article is a "3", has at least three pieces with a solid “1” rating, and whose clairvoyance predicted a successful season for the Raiders (yes, the Oakland Raiders) lose in an opening round game to an enlightened, compassionate, homosexual woman from San Francisco. You can almost feel the self-loathing rage coming off of him! Baynurse, congratulations, you’re into the field of 32.
Mean Mike Duffau vs Jen
By far the toughest play-in matchup… On one hand, you’ve got Jen – who just may be smarter than the ... (more)
... Ranch Pork Chop with Rosti Potatoes and Sautéed Greens; and for dessert, we sampled several items, including a Strawberry Soup with Burnt Italian Meringue and Candied Walnuts. The service was exceptional and the experience sublime. We love Sent Sovi!
The Grand Cafe (501 Geary Street, San Francisco (415) 292-0101;www.grandcafe-sf.com) is a French-California brasserie featuring contemporary French cuisine influenced by earthy seasonal flavors using strictly local, fresh ingredients. The service was more than adequate, the portions are generous (unlike many top-rated restaurants) and... (more)
...that Charles Hodgkins was a purist. Today I learned that Hodgkins, the burrito blogger, will survey and seriously write about Californians lifestyle county by county.
Hodgkins began his research on the ingredients and quality of the taste of burritos sold at local taquerias in San Francisco about three years ago. “Burritos are a real hot button issue,” said Charles during our afternoon interview. He was casually dressed in blue jeans, blue blazer and faded blue pull-over sweater.” Everybody in San Francisco eats slabs (the term for burritos), five star... (more)
