The Harrowing Life Of A Cowgirl Creamery Cheesemonger

Grub Report breaks down all the ridiculous things you should never do or say in an artisanal cheese shop, in this case local favorite Cowgirl Creamery. While clearly blowing off some steam about the apparently large number of witless idiots who wander into the store, the article includes some anecdotes to ensure that I'll never, ever become a fancy cheesemonger:

"I was sort of explaining [expensive cheese] to one customer as he boggled over the price of a French cheese. I explained that it was French and homemade. Grinning like an idiot that i suspect is of the "village" kind, he asks, "Oh, so, like some little guy in Tuscany is making it?" Right. Except that the "little guy" is IN FRANCE!"

Ain't customer service grand? But just to balance everything out, there's another piece entirely devoted to the beloved customers. (via Grub Report)

  • 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.
