Maybe you shouldn't lunch on anything this rich on a day you have to return to your office chair and stay reasonably conscious, or maybe Curry Up Now's paneer burrito is reward for having spent the morning in your office chair, staying reasonably conscious. Pickled onions and garbanzos are all mixed up in rice well lubricated with ghee, and what tastes like a cilantro and fenugreek-leaf pesto, all swaddled in a La Palma tortilla. It's super-hefty and indulgent, and just vivid enough to rouse you ― at least for the duration of your lunch break.

Curry Up Now Parked today at 225 Bush (at Sansome), beginning at 11:45 a.m.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
