Foodie Drama 

Wednesday, Jul 29 2009
Four courses is too much, unless one of them is ... coffee? At "Theater You Can Eat," The People's Theatre company invades a Bolivian/raw food restaurant, and presents a slate of comedies about the effects of comestibles on human life. The first, Wake Up Cup, honestly sounds like a common nightmare: Something happens, you can't get your first cup of coffee in the morning, and then some yutz breaks all the rules of civility that bind you to nonviolence by speaking to you. Is it not one of the great questions of our times, whether it's acceptable to commit mayhem in this situation? The new local company breezes through this and three other playlets — their themes are salad, ceviche, and chocolate, the other three food groups — while you eat your fried plantains, sautéed beef, and/or raw tacos. Bon appétit! "Theater You Can Eat" starts previews this evening; opening night is Aug. 7.
July 31-Sept. 6, 6 p.m., 2009

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
