Too Thrashed 

Wednesday, Dec 10 2008

Silas Baxter-Neal's ollies, grinds, and kickflips are the stuff of legend — or, at least, the stuff of repeated slack-jawed YouTube views. So it comes as little surprise that the 25-year-old resident of Eugene, Oregon, has been named Thrasher Magazine's 2008 Skater of the Year. What is surprising, however, is that Oakland old-skool hip-hop pioneer and independent trailblazer Too $hort will perform live as the featured guest at Thrasher's Skater of the Year Party. No word on whether $hort Dog will sport checkered Vans or patent leather Stacy Adams. However, if you're anticipating a sausage-fest, Thrasher's site promises "the first 100 lovely ladies age 18 or older in line for our bash will get in for free!".

  • 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.
