THE WEEKNIGHTER We were all there for Kelly Malone. It was the opening for an art show she'd done, as well as a fundraiser to help her kick cancer's ass. At least I think that's what it was. I don't fully recall, to tell you the truth. Most of 2011 was a blurry, self-congratulatory, victory lap for me. I had done what I set out to do, create and host a TV show based on the Broke-Ass Stuart brand I'd been hustling for a million years.Read more »

MIDDAY MADNESS

Just when you think the brunch at Slow Club (2501 Mariposa, SF. www.slowclub.com) couldn't possibly rock any more than it already does, the perennial hotspot makes the move to offer it all week long. Really? For reals! You can have a fried egg sandwich for lunch, and you don't have to wait until the weekend for bourbon French toast. Available Mon–Fri 11:30am–2:30pm, and of course Sat–Sun 10am–2:30pm.Read more »

THE WEEKNIGHTER Sutter Station doesn't give a fuck. In fact, it has been steadfastly sitting on Market Street, not giving fucks since 1969. That's before BART existed, before Tales of the City came out, and before the Beatles broke up. The United States was still tangled up in the Vietnam War when Sutter Station first opened its doors to show San Franciscans what not giving a fuck looked like.Read more »

CHOW NOW

Some interesting openings this week, starting with Trou Normand (140 New Montgomery, SF. www.trounormandsf.com), inside the historic Pacific Telephone Building in SoMa. It's from Thad Vogler of Bar Agricole, so yeah, there will be awesome booze there. And good ice. Cocktails include Armagnac, Cognac, and Calvados. (Be prepared to throw back a traditional shot of Calvados, a French brandy, in preparation for or during a big meal to "make room" with "a Norman hole" — hence the name, Trou Normand).Read more »
