Is this MINI Coupe an actual Cooper? IDK.
But this car is evil, I know that.

OMG, Alice Waters-hating Tony Bourdain will grace San Francisco once again, like on April 12th, 2013.

GOOD VS. EVIL:
An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert
LIVE at the SHN Orpheum Theatre FRIDAY, APRIL 12
SAN FRANCISCO (November 13) – Two chefs. Two unlikely friends. Two very different careers and philosophies sharing one stage.
Join Anthony Bourdain and his good friend, Eric Ripert – internationally renowned chefs, authors, and television personalities – as they share stories and muse on the place of food in our personal, community, and global life. Their Good vs. Evil tour will visit San Francisco for one night only, 8PM – Friday, April 12th at the SHN Orpheum Theatre. This engaging evening of storytelling and observation, providing frank and provocative insight into what really goes on behind kitchen doors, will delight and intrigue.
Anthony Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously blunt portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get Jiro!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
Eric Ripert is the chef and co-owner of New York’s famed Le Bernardin, which continues to receive universal critical acclaim, including three stars from the Michelin Guide, an unprecedented “29” food rating from the Zagat Guide for the past three years, and consistent four-star reviews from the New York Times for over two decades. He has also served as guest judge and “fan favorite” on Bravo’s Top Chef for several seasons. Ripert is the author of four cookbooks, including 2010’s Avec Eric (based on his popular PBS program of the same name), On the Line, A Return to Cooking, and the Le Bernardin Cookbook.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 16 at 10:00am. Ticket prices range from $70 to $90. Tickets will be available by phone at 888-746-1799, online at shnsf.com, or in person at the Orpheum Theatre Box Office.
A limited number of Premium tickets will be available for $195, which include: premier seating, a limited edition tour poster and VIP laminate, and exclusive access to a post-show meet and greet reception featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and photo and signing opportunities with Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert.

Oh, well, here’s the whole thing, or at least all of the back of the mailer.
(When they say Shell Oil, what they mean is Shell Energy North America.)
Now, why did the dumb-clucks who made this ad decide to pick the world’s most solar-powered gas station?

I don’t know, because they don’t know what they’re doing?
NB: Your bad cosmetic surgery fools nobody. People laugh at you when your back is turned, you know, at those benefits ‘n stuff. Perhaps just aging gracefully is a better, safer option?
This is how they do it, with a flyer in the mail talking about how Christina Olague and Julian Davis support giving nearly $20,000,000 a year to Shell Oil.

Now, is that true?
But it appears that Christina Olague and Julian Davis have run afoul of a few PG&E-loving Bay Area billioniares, et uxes.
Now, I’d call this cabal Conway/Coates, but they, and I’m seriously, call themselves:
“San Francisco Women for Accountability and a Responsible Supervisor Opposing Christina Olague 2012.”
So that’s SFWFAAARSOCA 2012 for short, sort of.
Here’s Tim Redmond’s take:
But hey, do you see the orange skies up there, right where the heads of the progressive D5 front-runners have been Photoshopped?
Hey, I know, let’s take Linda Voight and Photoshop her into a shot of the Great PG&E Pipeline explosion of San Bruno.
I see dead people:
Now doesn’t she look evil?
I think so.
Here are your new, three-wheeled Piaggios, you know, dall’Italia.
The first one’s kind of cute but the other one is pure evil – just look at it:

Oh, and the prices? About double what I expected.
Anyway, which would you prefer?
