And the Award For San Francisco’s #1 Tourist Trap Restaurant Goes To … Castagnola’s Seafood and Chophouse

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Here we go, start reading – this place is horrible.

IMO, San Francisco would be better off without this particular place up in Fisherman’s Wharf, but the Golden Gate Restaurant Association disagrees, oh well.

Of course nobody cares what I think so head on up there and check it out, if you want.

And be sure to try the “unnecessarily complicated Shrimp Louie

If you want…

Friday, February 17th, 2012

The P&O* Cruises Aurora was just in town up near Fishermans Wharf at Pier 35 South for part of her 2012 World Cruise.

That Hulking Cruise Ship at the End of the Street – MV Aurora Graces San Francisco, Briefly – Next Stop: Hilo, Hawaii

Friday, January 27th, 2012

The P&O* Cruises Aurora was just in town up near Fishermans Wharf at Pier 35 South for part of her 2012 World Cruise.

(Man, it must be tough running a cruise ship, with all the passengers having nothing to do on around-the-world trips except colluding on class-action lawsuits.)

Anyway, Bon Voyage, Aurora!

Family Fun for the Holidays: Going Crabbing at Torpedo Wharf Under the Golden Gate Bridge for Free – No Permits Required

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Why, this bucolic scene almost looks like Mayberry, R.F.D., excepting for the famous bridge up high.

Check it:

You can legally fish or crab without a license at Torpedo Wharf at the west end of Crissy Field. Look for posted regulations.”

Them’s crabbers down there, that’s what they are, those West End girls and boys

It’s easy to get started.

All the deets.

OMG, You Gotta Go See Teatro Zinzanni Before It Leaves Us to Make Way for that Money-Losing America’s Cup 2013

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Here’s how you know when a relationship over, when your supposed beau says something like:

“I’d be happy to introduce you to other men not in this immediate area, or facilitate a conversation with men in the City, or perhaps a matchmaking service. I’ll email you their phone number or something.”

That’s it, it’s over, baby. HJNTIY.

So imagine how the hard-working people at highly-rated Teatro Zinzanni feel about their coming eviction to make way for the NASCAR-esque, tradition-be-damned America’s Cup 2013, aka Larry Ellison’s boat race.

Here’s what the Port of San Francisco is saying about the sitch:

We’d be happy to show them locations that are not in this immediate area, or facilitate a conversation with other city departments or commercial real estate agents.”

Or, in other words, GO TO HELL.

Anyway, put Teatro Zinzanni at the top of your Bucket List right now, before it goes away.

Ooh, backstage:

Ooh, bobbles!

To sum up:

Boo, America’s Cup Eurotrash

Yay, Teatro Zinzanni


Decorative Rocks Sure Make It Tough to Ride a Bike Down the Middle of the Embarcadero

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Man, these rocks sure make for a bumpy ride.

Whoever put them it ought to get fired.

In the middle of the road,
Is my private cul de sac.
I can’t get from the cab to the curb,
Without some little jerk on my back,
Don’t harass me kid,
Can’t you tell I’m going home, I’m tired as hell,
I’m not the cat I used to be,
I’ve got a kid, I’m thirty-three baby.
Get in the road.
Come on now,
In the middle of the road.

15th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival a Huge Success Under the Pouring Sun

Monday, September 13th, 2010

If you’re into chocolate and free swag, then the 15th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival would have been for you.

The line for a Kara’s Cupcakes mini-cupcake from their iconic truck was just insane on both days. Kara’s was the first exhibitor to run out of goods and it happened fairly quickly. Oh well.

Anyway, see the photos, and take a look at this full trip report from Garky Eats and/or Ewok1993

The wait for Kara’s might have gotten up to 15 minutes for a while there on Sunday. They had a sign denoting the flavors on the truck for part of the time anyway…

Liquid choco with Bailey’s:

And wouldn’t you just love a bangle full of mini-macaroons? Of course the macaroon is The New Cupcake, don’t you know.

See you next year!
