Granted they left the “K” off of Knob, but TCB Courier acknowledges Frederick Knob (FKnob) as a neighborhood on their delivery zones. That’s all the proof I need to confirm that FKnob is a real neighborhood. I was iffy on Wikipedia. If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been on a FKnob kick lately.

The drink is called Mets and it’s made by KIRIN, and honestly, that’s all I can really tell from the video. It appears to get you out of tough situations — like jumping though a cable car — when you’re tearing up the streets of San Francisco on a bike.
Riding bikes. Slamming Mets. San Francisco.

A new parklet is currently under construction outside Martin Macks on Haight Street, and from the looks of the brick walls going up around the perimeter it plans be a permanent fixture in the Upper Haight.
Martin Macks tends to attract soccer fans looking to watch 6am Premier League games, but since its renovation the bar has a much more open feel to it with the large front windows facing the street.
However, alfresco in the Upper Haight is a tough sell. If you’re going to enjoy a beer in a parklet located on Haight Street you’ll need to be willing to ward off trustafarians, tourists, and general weirdos.
That’s not to say outside seating in the Upper Haight isn’t catching on. Local establishments such as Magnolia Pub offers outside seating along Haight St., and the much loved Haight Street Market has started to set up a few tables and chairs on the sidewalk as well.
We usually tend to frequent Martin Macks once a year solely for their epic Super Bowl party, but I might entertain the idea of Guinness on the street more often with the addition of this new parklet.

If someone in your crew shows up with a bottle of Kru hanging from their belt by a carabineer, you might want to reconsider that person’s level of involvement in the crew.

I’m not a huge fan of the “add bacon to everything” craze, but the Bacon Craker Jack at Magnolia Pub & Brewery is an epic combo – Cracker Jacks with pieces of bacon! Pints of Proving Ground IPA doesn’t hurt either.

Dendrochronology is the scientific method of dating based on the analysis of patterns of tree-rings. Implementing that same methodology, I’ve discovered that it takes me roughly five sips to make it to the bottom of a pint of IPA.
