Life in Frisco…
Here’s some background and now let’s have an update.
San Francisco’s Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea of poo:
Stepping over and on raw sewage, on a daily basis:
Is this rainwater? You wish. It’s the accumulated sewage from the previous eruption. Most of the time this area is wet:
This is the sidewalk of Sansome betwixt Pine and California near our tony Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
The vent you see on the right regularly overflows with stinky raw sewage.
Why does that happen?

And stuff that looks like toilet paper, is toilet paper, Gentle Reader.
And this is the same thing on Clayton near the 94117 Post Office:
But in this location, this condition doesn’t seem to be a regular thing.
The problem near the corner of California and Sansome near the new CVS in the Financh is ongoing.
Submit your recipe by June 30th, 2010 and you just might win the First Annual Foster Farms West Coast Chicken Cooking Contest in San Francisco come September. Do it for the lulz but mind the red tape:
“The contest is open to all California, Oregon and Washington residents over the age of 18. Contestants are encouraged to submit their unique chicken recipes featuring fresh Foster Farms chicken and local ingredients, wherever possible. Entries will be judged by members of the food media and culinary professionals. Entries can be submitted online at www.fosterfarms.com/cookingcontest, by e-mail at email@example.com or by mail to Foster Farms, Cooking Contest, P.O. Box 306, Livingston, CA 95334.”
I know what your thinking, your thinking Chinese Chicken Burgers with Rainbow Sesame Slaw. Well it’s been done already in a recent national contest, so try to think of some unique recipe using degredients from your area. It’s all local these days, right? And a story, you gots to have a cute story to tell the judges while they’re noshing. (Work in something about your grandmother, that’s always a winner.)
Start cooking. Bon courage!
(And don’t tell PETA. Shhhh….)
Calling All Chicken Chefs: Foster Farms Announces First-Ever West Coast Chicken Cooking Contest. Contest features Grand Prize of $10,000 and one-year supply of fresh Foster Farms chicken
LIVINGSTON, Calif., March 31 — Your favorite chicken recipe could be worth $10,000. Foster Farms today announces the call for entries for its first-ever Foster Farms West Coast Chicken Cooking Contest. The contest’s champion will earn a prize of $10,000 plus a one-year supply of fresh Foster Farms chicken*.

Home, amateur and professional chefs residing in California, Oregon and Washington are encouraged to submit their prized, original chicken recipes for consideration. Recipes must feature fresh Foster Farms chicken and should be inspired by local ingredients as a testament to Foster Farms’ commitment to foods that are fresh, locally-grown and always natural. The deadline to enter is June 30, 2010 at 11:59:59 p.m. PDT and the contest will culminate with finals held in San Francisco in September 2010 during National Chicken Month.
All the deets, after the jump
This example of raw sewage on Clayton Street in the Upper Haight (right in front of the busy 94117 Post Office, actually) has been sitting around for about 48 hours or so.
Somebody put up an orange cone, so that’s a sure sign that some progress is being made.
Yes, that’s what you think it is. That other stuff? Again, it’s also what you think it is. Click to expand:
[UPDATE: 24 hours later, all better. Merci boocooh!]
