Typical corner in San Francisco

May 25th, 2013

Fire hydrant, bicycle wheel, red vines

A bicycle wheel leaned up against a fire hydrant with a partially used pack of Red Vines on top. Pretty much says it all about San Francisco, doesn’t it?

Skull shop returns from the grave

May 1st, 2013


Remember when I told you that Martin’s Emporium, the skull shop on 16th St between Guerrero and Dolores, was going out of business?

Turns out I lied. Well, okay I didn’t lie so much as that was really their plan at the time. But after two years the For Sale sign is gone from the window. According to their Facebook page, Martin’s is coming back!

I know, it’s been difficult living without a source of skull jewelry and trinkets. I hope you’ve been maintaining a detailed shopping list.

Best company tweet ever

May 1st, 2013

Eat24 is an online restaurant ordering service that bills itself as the OpenTable of delivery. Their website reminds users that no pants are required for delivery, but the unusual approach to public relations doesn’t end there. The above Tweet suggests another use for their service; satisfying munchies brought on by excessive nighttime intoxication.

While some companies might delete such a tweet and find an intern to pin it on after sobering up, Eat24 has left the tweet intact. And I say good for them — nobody wants to read another bland company Twitter feed.

So let me ask: could this be the best company tweet ever?
