Barrel Head Brewhouse Sneak Peek: Massive Upstairs Windows Display Your Low-Rise Jeans Plumber’s Butt for Tout le Monde to See

This new place on Fulton hasn’t even opened yet but  it already has a five-star rating from Yelp, imagine that.

This particular block of Fulton is known for being home to a former Mayor’s formerly favorite corporate coffee house and what else? Oh, very expensive burritos. If you want, you can rent a big building a couple of doors down and open your own joint – just $18k a month in rent. And remember that big whorehouse that shut down a few years back?

What will happen next on the odd side of the 1700 block of Fulton across from the Lucky? Who knows.

But how about some window coverings, except why’d you install such big windows in the first place if you’re going to cover them up? Oh well.

 

How to Separate Teenaged Girls From Their SmartPhones: Offer Them a Sneak Peak of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” at the Mall

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

This was the scene last night at the Century San Francisco Centre 9 Theatres above Bloomingdales in the Great WestField Mall of SoMA. Sneak peekers of the latest horrible teen vampire/werewolf flick had to check their mobiles.

How could they stand for this, for even a couple hours?

(Can you imagine what this box would be worth in the Mid-Market just a few blocks away on 7th Street, you know the World Capitol of Stolen Phones for Sale? A lot of cabbage, that’s for sure…)

Iron Horse Vineyards Commemorates Tutankhamun Show with “Tut Cuvée” Sparkling Wine

Friday, September 11th, 2009

The Bigelow Report forecasted it a while ago, so you had to happen – Tut Cuvée, a “limited edition” sparking wine, is now available at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.

It’s Tut, baby! You knew he was going to bring it. Check it out in the cafe when you see the Tut show.

Or “champagne.” You can call it that, “semi-generically,” if you want. It’s your right as an American. (That reminds me that I need to tell you about the Secret Sherry Society sometime. Moving on…)

Actually, if you want to get a bottle to go as a souvenir gift for your friends at home, you could do a lot worse. I don’t think you can actually get a bottle at the museum, but they’ll sell a glassful to you. And what’s wrong with that?

All the deets:

TUT CUVÉE, SPARKLING WINE FIT FOR A PHARAOH, LAUNCHES ON SEPTEMBER 10
A portion of the proceeds goes to funding school visits to the King Tut exhibition.
 
SAN FRANCISCO – The de Young Museum, in partnership with Iron Horse Vineyards, is pleased to announce the debut of Tut Cuvée, a limited edition, premium sparkling wine created to commemorate the exhibition, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, currently on view at the museum.  One dollar of the purchase price of every bottle will go towards sending school children to see the exhibition for free.  Over 350 Bay Area school children will benefit from this initiative.

“We have created wine for Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens, the Pope and now a Pharaoh.  But my family and I are most proud that sales of Tut Cuvée will send so many Bay Area kids to see the exhibition and experience ancient Egypt face-to-face,” explains Joy Sterling, CEO of Iron Horse Vineyards.

Iron Horse Vineyards Winemaker David Munksgard crafted Tut Cuvée from a 2006 vintage Blanc de Noirs made from predominantly Pinot Noir grapes with a splash of Chardonnay. The dosage, or finishing element, for the sparkling wine was selected through a special tasting session conducted at the winery in Sebastopol in August.  The panel consisted of David Munksgard, Fine Arts Museums Director John Buchanan and Spencer Christian, host of KGO-TV’s View from the Bay and a celebrated oenophile.  “We crafted Tut Cuvée to embody all the qualities one would ascribe to the boy king – regal, elegant, and very dry!” quips John Buchanan.

To ensure a sparkling wine fit for a pharaoh, only 500 cases will be produced in this limited edition.  Tut Cuvée will be available for sale by the glass in the de Young Museum Café, by the bottle or case at the Iron Horse Vineyards tasting room in Sebastopol, and at fine wine shops throughout the Bay Area.  The wine is also available online at www.ironhorsevineyards.com.  Tut Cuvée will retail for $29.99 per bottle.

Tut at the de Young – Know Your Boy King: #2, Anubis the Protector

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

It’s Tut! It’s dazzling! As you know by now, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs has opened at the de Young Museum.

Now these days, you can’t travel without protection so what better Protector could you find than Anubis, the jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in Egyptian mythology.

And here he is, from far away, it’s 25 foot tall metal Anubis being installed up in Yelp-rated Pier 39:

Now that’s better. Don’t lose your head, A-dog. 

IMG_9098 copy

This whole installation was quite the circus with circling news choppers and the works. 

Now, you gots to install giant Anubis in pieces, and not do it the way they did in Hotlanta, GA. This chart posted inside of the hollow statue spells it all out:

IMG_9093 copy

Is this jackal a naughty boy? Some seem to think so.

Here’s Tut’s actual Anubis, the main man who was at the ready for 3000 years in Egypt. There’s a lot to learn when you see the Tut show in Golden Gate Park. And, bonus,  it’s even open tomorrow, the Fourth of July, last entry at 2:00 PM.

And check out Cultural Encounters tonight at the de Young. See you there!

This is King Tut’s royal headband. His mummified head wore it for over 3000 years, but now it’s available for you to view in Golden Gate Park.

Tut at the de Young Looks Absolutely Fantastic – A Must See

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

It’s Tut! It’s dazzling! Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs is opening soon at the de Young Museum.

Don’t expect another tour 30 years from now. When this exhibit ends, it ends – you’ll have to journey to Egypt ’cause this large collection of artifacts won’t ever go on the road  again.  

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom yesterday with  Dr. Zahi Hawass, the Secretary General of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities and, of course, a 3000-year-old life-size bust of the Boy King:

Don’t just show up there in Golden Gate Park this weekend, you’ll need to get your tickets first.

See you there! (If not on Opening Weekend, sometime soon.)
