“Meat Day” Comes on the 29th of Every Month in Japantown – But Uh Oh: “Except for Sausage, Bacon, Ham”

Friday, October 4th, 2013

This is a monthly thing for four-star Yelp-rated Nijiya Market at 1737 Post St (between Buchanan and Webster) in Godforsaken, windblown, Redeveloped, and concrete-and-clay-and-general-decay Japantown.*

But what’s this,”EXCEPT FOR SAUSAGE, BACON, HAM?”

Those are like the three best animals, man!

A good thing is when the have cases of “imported” Sapporo Draft (aka Premium) (kara サッポロビール株式会社 Sapporo Bīru Kabushiki-gaisha) on sale for $13. (Yeah, imported from Ontario, Canada(!), but I guess an import is an import.)

Anyway, enjoy your Meat Days, San Francisco!

Homer: Are you saying you’re never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Ham?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Pork chops?

Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.

Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

*I haven’t a clue on how to best fix earthquake-unsafe J-Town. Before the Great Recession, the solution was going to be something like 500 new condos in the nabe, each with a $100,000 fee tacked on to help pay for a new Japantown Garage and whatnot. But some businesses inside the horrible mall buildings are thriving and some are not, so it’s not an easy call to have a giant implosion and just start over. And, up to now, there’s been no money for that kind of thing anyway…

Extra-Long Wait for 38 Geary at Divisadero Allows iPad Thief Enough Time to Hit On and Hit Area Woman – Thanks SFMTA!

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Saturday night crime in the DivCo:

“I obviously locked/alarmed/blahblah’d it, but am still feeling very upset about it. The ipad was a gift from my father and not something I could dream about affording on my own. AND, more frustratingly, the dude who took it had just hit on me like five minutes beforehand. I don’t know. I guess if anyone sees an ipad with a TARDIS background on craigslist, PM me? Whatever.”

“I was outbound, so I was right in front of the Honeybaked ham store. I honestly pretty rarely use my ipad in public, but it was the end of a very long day, the bus said it was going to take 30+ minutes, and the dude who robbed me had hit on like ten minutes prior to it happening (needless to say, I was charmed), so I didn’t really expect him to, you know. Punch me.”

Head on down to “The Cellar” or the basement or whatever they call the bottom floor of San Francisco’s flagship Macy’s and check out this “Museo del Jamón” display.

A porcine horror show to get you in the shopping mood:

What would PETA have to say about this ghastly windowbox? And how about truculent troubadour Morrissey?

Its not natural, normal or kind
The flesh you so fancifully fry
The meat in your mouth
As you savour the flavour
Of murder
