Holy Hamburgers, Batman! Say it ain't so!

A man outfitted in the not-memorable-at-all disguise of a Batman mask and false vampire teeth entered a McDonald's in nearby Belmont at around 9 p.m. last night. It's unclear what device man pulled from his utility belt. But, whatever it was, he convinced a restaurant manager to fork over some money before fleeing not in the Batmobile but a silver, two-door Honda.

Batman is described a Hispanic man standing 5-foot-10 to 6-feet-tall and weighing between 215 and 240 pounds -- meaning either Christian Bale is morphing his body again, or we've got a new Batman here.

A San Mateo countywide alert came up empty last night. Sadly, the Bat Signal isn't all it's cracked up to be.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
