Another groupon in our very own uHood. Get it now – $7 for $15 worth of meat a Drewes Brothers.
It looks like a cold one is coming our way this weekend! To prepare
everyone for the possibility, I thought I’d share this picture of snow
in the uHood (24th and Shotwell!) from way back in 1887.
Here are a few things to know about Watermelon Sugar Salon, the place that took over the old Painted Bird spot:
– It’s named after the owner’s favorite book: “In Watermelon Sugar,” by Richard Brautigan. Nick (the owner) has a copy on hand – it’s a pretty darned quirky book.
– At least a couple of their stylists used to work at Edo Salon. So I’d say they’re on par with the stylists at the various Haight Street salons.
– They have a very cool iPad attachment that serves as their credit card swipe. I love seeing young businesses embracing new technologies for some reason (because I’m a nerd?).
So a decent option if you find yourself wanting a cut without a commute. And a thumbs up to them for bringing a service to the uHood we didn’t have quite so accessible before. Now what else can we use super close by? I’m thinking hardware store, late-night diner, Korean bbq….
Can this be for real? Fine food at Clooney's? What will the local bar flys do if the hipsters really invade their last local watering hole?Seems as though it is true. The Galley Kitchen is supposed to be soft opening in Clooney's this weekend with "alternative pub fare". Check it out: http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie/2011/02/the_galley_taking_over_the_kit.php
