FARMSHOP charging .30 for paper bag. Every other market in area charging 10 cents

If they are made of hemp and cost $80 I wonder if the material is "medical hemp" that one can smoke if in a desperate situation.

Obama at Canter's

I would expect President Obama to be "back in the 'hood along Fairfax."

Arby's, just how is their roast beef made?

In simple terms, it is extruded from "meat substance mixture" like play-doh through a series of pumps and dies.

How many SF 49ers football fans really want Vegan food?

I wonder if "Niner Bacon" will become the next culinary fad in the Bay Area...

Avery announces Quintupel Ale

Upon closer reading of the web site, I see that the barrel the ale was aged in is, in fact, a bourbon barrel. Some of that delicious Belgian Bourbon, perhaps?

Liquid Cocaine

Cocaine has really messed up the lives of several people I know. Naming a cocktail after it, even as a joke, is in really poor taste.

Sawtelle coming and going: Tapenade and Tsujita LA Villa and bonus cold noodle question

Chrishei,
About "Fun Bun" -- Martin Mull used to advertise a place called "Bun & Run" and I wonder if they are related.

Favorite Nacho Toppings

Gosh, why didn't I think of this before?

On top of your nachos, place a layer of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, then brown under the broiler.

Favorite Nacho Toppings

Sliced black olives (pitted) and lots of ultra-sharp super-aged cheddar.

Beer Camp

Now that you mention it, Josh, Sierra Nevada seems about halfway between Rogue and Anchor Brewing on the scale of daring new products.

Misspellings

Generally, there is no singular/plural in Japanese unless special constructions are used. Just get the name right and you should be fine.

This one really pins the weird meter.

Foods or snacks you NEVER get tired of?

It was the mention of bourbon that brought all of that into clear focus.

Foods or snacks you NEVER get tired of?

Chocolate covered raisins -- this also extends to chocolate covered prunes (stuffed with a toasted almond where the seed was) when I am not too lazy to make them.

With beer, thick and crunchy Mexican-style chicharrones.

Beer Camp

No surprise, really, because New Glarus is such a fantastic brewery.

Chili House at 8th and Clement? [San Francisco]

I could be mistaken, but the "sansho" pepper used in Japanese cuisine is much like Sichuan peppercorns, and there is a good chance these could be obtained fresh at a Japanese market such as Nijiya.

Santa Rosa to Mendocino

Heck, even the Bear Republic brewpub in Healdsburg is a great place to eat, and the beer they serve is terrific.

Braufactum Palor - German craft beer

Great detective work. Looks like BP is in good hands. The brewer formerly worked at Radeberger.

Fukurou - New Ramen Place in East Hollywood

Mikey,
I think you got the "tonkotsu" ramen. Generally, there is no such thing as "tonkatsu" ramen.

Well, I am often surprised that the very best stories most often do not get comments from site-goers.

I would hope an importer like B. United, but likely it would be Shelton Bros.

Stone in Berlin

Not surprising, Jim, since the biggest cost in US mass-produced beer is the advertising...

What the hey?

I do, but I live in Japan. These days I see a whole lot of ads for the Olive Pit in rural California as well.

Well, it is good to see that I am not the only one who loved this piece. Interesting that the other two people create some of the best features on this site.

Amusing menu gaffes - what's yours? [moved from Boston board]

As a college student, I had a part-time job where I unloaded trucks. I would stack the boxes onto a pallet, and the forklift driver would take it away.

I always wonder if they are Organ Döner Kebabs.

Pub to sample California Microbrews

In my experience, all but a few of the bartenders at Toronado have been given charisma bypass operations and invariably greet you with a sneer. But your advice on dealing with them is some of the best I have heard.
