From Mexico With Love: “Coca Cola Fiesta Variety” – Cane Sugar in Stoplight Colors – Red-Amber-Green – Coke-Fanta-Sprite – 88 Cents Per at CostcoThursday, May 14th, 2015
But now there’s this, your Coca Cola Fiesta Variety Pack, featuring cane sugar Sprite and cane sugar Orange Fanta:
The expected rejoinder from Pepsi? Sugar cane 7-Up and sugar cane Orange Crush, of course.
We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop
PRADA Makes a Mockery of the America’s Cup Safety Review Committee – Foiling Past Larry Ellison’s Paper TigerMonday, May 20th, 2013
Here’s the latest from the Larry Ellison People:
“We appreciate the vote of confidence Mr. Bertelli, president of Luna Rossa Challenge, gave to the America’s Cup continuing as planned this summer on San Francisco Bay,”
Uh no. What you’re getting from Mr. Bertelli is NOT a vote of confidence.
In fact, it’s the opposite.
Let me show y0u. The Larry Ellison Safety Review Committee, which, of course, is reviewing, not investigating, oh no, never investigating, perish the thought, the safety issues created by, can you guess, anyone, anyone, that’s right, Larry Ellison, issued this statement last week:
“…teams have been asked to suspend all sailing in AC72 and AC45 catamarans until the middle of next week.”
Hey, how do you say “fuck you, Larry Ellison,” you know, en Italiano?
I think you say it like this:

Hey, is the SFPD doing a possible homicide investigation right about now? I think so. Think on that, Larry Ellison People. Think on that while trying to figure out how the very same “America’s Cup Family” that has brought us, already, the worst AC in history, is going to investigate itself, I’m sorry, review itself in a fair an impartial way.
Hey, doesn’t the Safety Review Committee have a whole mess of conflicts? Would you like me to list them for you? (Pillow Talk: “Hey Honey, do you think…”)
And that Artemis “Big Red” AC72 _didn’t_ fold up, as reported, “like a taco shell?” So how did it fold up? Like a chalupa? Oh, what’s that, it didn’t fold up at all? Is that what you’re saying?
The former Big Red upon San Francisco Bay, as seen last year, a ticking time bomb that went off this month, more expensive than some of the jetliners that flew above it, and more expensive and about as tall as some jetliners are long. And yet if you were killed flying to Vegas there’d be a big big investigation, right? And what’s the response from the Larry Ellison People? It’s if you want to make an omelette, you’re going to have to break some eggs.
“I hope like hell that whoever survives this thing and wins it changes the boat class to anything safer than these God-forsaken death traps.”
Here’s What the Artemis Racing AC72 America’s Cup Yacht Looked Like Getting Hauled Out – Folded Up “Like a Taco Shell”Saturday, May 11th, 2013
You can see a little bit of the port hull and also the places where it ripped away:
From the Newcastle Herald:
‘Nathan told me [the turn] didn’t seem any different to any other occasion,’’ Mr Outteridge said.
‘‘The bow dug in a little bit but he said that’s not unusual.
‘‘The next thing he heard a cracking noise and the boat went on its side.
‘‘Before it capsized it snapped in half, Nathan described it as folding like a taco shell.’’
“A quick head count revealed one member of the crew was missing – Andrew Simpson – triggering a desperate search.
The British two-time Olympic gold medallist was trapped underwater, wedged underneath ‘‘a few tonnes’’ of carbon fibre, frantically trying to free himself.
His crew members could see him, fighting for his life and dived beneath the water to try to set him free.
They handed the man they called ‘‘Bart’’ emergency oxygen bottles – which hold about 10 breaths each – in a bid to keep him alive in the hope rescue crews would arrive in time.
Costco Mexican Soda Evolution – First Came Coke, Then Came Pepsi, But Now Here Comes El Medio Litro, The KingFriday, October 26th, 2012
First came Coke, all the way from Mexico, all the way back in aught-six. (You see, they use sugar as the sweetener south of the border, you know, instead of corn syrup.)

And then came the Mexican Pepsi at the Costco:
But now comes the King of Them All, El Medio Litro, the half-litre of Mexican Coke in a bottle:
I only saw one case at Costco #144 in SoMA, just recently.
I don’t know what they go for, probably something betwixt $18-24 for 24.
Who knows what Mexican-made beverage Costco will offer next…
As seen at Four-Star Yelp-Rated Taqueria Cancun, 6th and Market:

Leave us review: Former Mayor Gavin Newsom signed a payroll tax into law back in 2004. But a half-decade later, Twitter decided that it didn’t like Gavin Newsom’s tax, so an exemption was made for Twitter, and others so bold as to set up shop in an area that was mapped out by real estate interests and others, only Gaia knows.
So that’s how a $12,000 donation or something given to Gavin Newsom’s failed gubernatorial campaign led to the birth of the nascent Mid-Market Twitterloin area.
OMG, “Off The Grid: Upper Haight” has Grown Into Quite the Affair – Food Truck Dinner Party Every ThursdayFriday, August 26th, 2011
Off The Grid has come into its own at the Upper Haight Location at the end of Waller near Stanyan (just one block north of our landmark Haight Street McDonalds).
I had no idea that it’s become so popular, like it was yesterday, in the pouring fog.
And, of course, you can’t ignore the almost-perfect Yelp rating
Doublecheck the sked if you want to, but this is it, currently:
I’ll tell you, I was there at the beginning, at the very first OTGUH like a year ago. Back then, it wasn’t slammed with people, but these days it is.
Get on out there next Thursday, why not?
I don’t know about other OTGs but this one is off the hook.
Enjoy the consensus, plus the Minority Report, which focuses on the fact that too many people are there (is that a bug or a feature?) and the air-conditioned summer weather (is that a bug or a feature?):
“Went last night, and wow. Bites of the night included the pork belly with pickled daikon from Chairman Bao (the bun was super soft and delicious with a generous serving of pork belly) a pandan waffle, and unagi onigiri from Onigilly (which also has miso soup, an awesome treat in the freezing Haight AND they give you free refills). Highly recommend going with a group of 5 or 6 and sharing bites of things.”
“If you’ve tried the Off the Grid at Fort Mason, then this is pretty much the exact replica of it except on a smaller scale. I recognized some of the exact same food trucks too. And just like Fort Mason, it is crazy packed. I had a burrito that I think might have been from El Huarache Loco, which was decent and had a nice spicy kick to it. Other than the novelty of experiencing the food truck craze, I think the food is only okay and a bit on the pricey side based on portion size. The crowds also get a bit overwhelming especially when you’re waiting in a humongous line in the freezing SF cold. Fun to try on occasion if you just want to dabble in different types of food.”
“Off the Grid is the new age of food trucks. They promote alot of fusion foods and foods not normally served in restaurants. Since I’m a Pilipino who loves food well, I go often. They have a cupcake truck, Senior Sisig, and that Korean truck. I need to try out the bacon truck the next time I go there. It’s great place w/ your friends to meet up and snack on great foods. They have live music as well. I need to try out the other OTG.”
