We Go Together 

Wednesday, Jan 5 2011
Guess what? Comedy, as in the comedy world, lags somewhat behind the rest of the world in terms of certain kinds of intelligence. "But what about Eddie Izzard?" you're wondering. "Or Margaret Cho or Janeane Garofalo or Dave Chappelle?" Well, here's what: In spite of those successful people, up-and-coming comedians still have a disproportionately hard time if they're not straight white dudes who skew Repub. To us, it all means we're being denied access to funny jokes. Not cool! At Fags and Hags, Nico Santos leads a gang that doesn't meet the above description: Chris Burns, Mary Van Note, Guy Branum, Jonny McGovern, and Loren Kraut. None are straight men, all are smart, fast, and hilarious.

  • 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.
