The World’s Coolest Tofu Delivery Truck or Just Another Tofu Fan in the Richmond – It’s Hard to TellThursday, April 21st, 2016
From Gunma, Japan comes this Toyota 86 Scion FR-S, which stands for Front-engined, Rear-drive, sport.
Upon further review, I’m thinking this is just a private auto.
No matter, look for it here, in Japantown East, in a few short weeks:

San Francisco’s Japantown
The mission of the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival is to educate the public about the health benefits and various uses of soy and tofu. In adhering to these goals, the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival — an annual fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation — strives to be a vehicle for community-building and leadership development while adhering to the Foundation’s mission of keeping the community connected, informed and empowered.
This exciting culinary and cultural event showcases soy and tofu vendors, provides an educational forum on the various uses and benefits of soy and tofu, offers live music and cultural entertainment, interactive games and tofu eating contests, and culminates with the Soy and Tofu Dessert Competition.
Now in its sixth year, the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival has grown progressively since its inception with 3,500 attendees in 2011 to more than 20,000 in 2015. One of San Francisco Japantown’s largest festivals, the popular culinary and cultural event serves as the main fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation, and is held annually on the first Saturday in June.
Proceeds from the Festival help to publish the first nonprofit ethnic community newspaper of its kind in the country, the Nichi Bei Weekly.
Oh No, SFPD Chief Greg Suhr Bans Flair! – SF Weekly Covers “Sticker Purge” – Here’s What Excessive Flair Looks LikeWednesday, October 8th, 2014
Well, here you go:
“A goodly number of sports team decals, Grateful Dead imagery, shamrocks, college mascots, skateboard brand insignias, and family crests have since been disposed of.”
All right, now let’s see the kind of thing that wouldn’t survive a flair audit.

The above bit of flair could help to conveniently ID different mags, I suppose.
Now, check this out. What do you see?
Can SFPD officers wear hoop earrings while OTJ?
The fashion police say NO:
“5. JEWELRY AND ORNAMENTS (also see DGO 11.08, Grooming Standards). On-duty officers shall not wear jewelry or personal ornaments that are visible except:
a. A wristwatch.
b. A total of 2 rings that are consistent with officer safety. An engagement and wedding ring set will be considered as one ring.
c. A conservative tie bar or tie tack.
d. Female officers may, in addition, wear the following:
1. Hair clips or pins that match the color of the hair.
2. One ear post in each ear. The post must lie flush with the ear and be plain metal, gold or silver colored. The face of the post is not to have a diameter of more than three-eighths (3/8) inch. Nothing shall hang from the post.”
Hey look, the SFFD takes a different approach: Flair has been institutionalized.
This was on a ladder truck parked on Fulton in in front of the former “Gabin” prostitution house in the NoPA Western Addition:

It’s bad-ass, as you can see.
“Steal Your Face” or “Stealie” skull: Perhaps the best-known Grateful Dead art icon is a red, white, and blue skull with a lightning bolt through it. The lightning bolt skull can be found on the cover of the album Steal Your Face, and the image is sometimes known by that name. It was designed by Owsley Stanley and artist Bob Thomas, and was originally used as a logo to mark the band’s equipment.
And oh, feel free to get a tattoo with this logo, if you feel you’ve earned the right. I mean, they can’t take that away from you, correct?
OK, thanks for strolling down memory lane…
I Don’t Care What They Say, Here’s the Real Star of SF’s “Terminator 5” Film Production (Code Name: “VISTA”)Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
This Chrysler product, having decals I’ve never seen before IRL, has something to do with the filming of Terminator 5 about San Francisco these days.
That’s my first point.
Does This Thing Have A Hemi? Yes, yes it does:

Also, the code name for the production is VISTA, as you can see on the yellow sign.
That’s my final point.
