Lit Up 

Wednesday, Oct 1 2008
The Mission on a Saturday night, rife with the unexpected: Sidle your ass down an alley and you might find two stiltwalkers strumming banjos. The next doorway might hold salsa dancers playing spin the bottle. Tonight, books break open and the jailbreak prose sings as Lit Crawl hits the hood, severing writers from their keyboards and tumbling them into gutters and rathskellers. At 6 p.m., Bucky Sinister corrals Tarin Towers, Amanda Coggin, and others into Clarion Alley, while food writers Novella Carpenter and Sarah Deseran spice up 18 Reasons. At 7:15 p.m. there’s erotica on the tongues at Good Vibrations, and the Grotto denizens shoulder their way upstairs at the Elbo Room. At 8:30 p.m. the Lone Palm harbors survivors of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and writers for The Believer share the faith at the Latin American Club. There are too many readings to list, so, to mangle an already mangled Mark Twain quote, if you don’t like the entertainment, turn the corner.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
