Mike Molaro plays regular gigs in Austin, Texas and we highly recommend checking him out. He frequented the local coffee shops in San Francisco back in the day, and his latest album, Try Swimming, is available on iTunes.

When I walked out to my car last Sunday morning I noticed that my neighbor had quite the Saturday night. Using my detective skills, I concluded that he had his car shot at (bullet hole in windshield) and then proceeded to crash into either a tree or the Incredible Hulk. Amazingly, he was able to drive home and successfully parallel park without hitting my car.
Not that it’s going to help his Kelley Blue Book value any, but at least he’s keeping his car smelling good with a pine tree air freshener.

Chartreuse is a delicious green (or yellow) liqueur that’s been made by the Charthusian Monks since the 1700s. And it appears that the patrons who frequent the 540 Club in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond district love them some Chartreuse, as the bar goes through 1,200 bottles per year. The 540 Club is listed on the Chartreuse website for being the bar that sells “the largest number of bottles of Chartreuse Liqueur in the world“.
Disclaimer: While I love Chartreuse, I haven’t walked through the doors of the 540 Club for over a year since I was wrongfully eighty-sixed for the night after being accused of “passing back” my ID to a minor. Ok, that felt better.

One time this surfer down in Santa Cruz told me waves were canvases and that surfing them was the equivalent to painting on a canvas. Enjoy the video!

Years before the Internet blew up in a bacon craze, my mother used to pack these peanut butter and bacon sandwiches in my lunch for school. Had one this past weekend – still delicious! If you haven’t tried a PB&B yet, I highly recommend having one.

This is some really fresh “little” Jerry Garcia street art in the Haight. Barely walked on yet, and all tucked away in his corner of the sidewalk. It’s on Ashbury at Haight, of course.
