Smoking Old Ladies


This may be a shot in the dark, but has anyone else seen the random smoking ladies in Juri Commons? I must say, it’s kinda creepy. They’re two hispanic ladies in their mid sixties. They’re usually dressed identically though I’m fairly certain they’re not twins. They sit in or amongst the trees/plants in Juri usually really late at night. Ryu is certainly uneasy when it comes to these two. What’s really strange is that their heads are wrapped in Safeway plastic bags (kinda like a ghetto plastic hair net) and they puff away feverishly on cigars as if the world is going to end (sometimes chanting). 

After seeing them a few times I’ve started saying hello in an effort to avoid them trying to kill me. Though I’m brave and willing to take sneak pics (see Black Hat and Uncle Paco impromptu candids) there is no f*cking way I’m going to risk my flash going off and have these chicks cut me to pieces. They look kinda strong.

Am I the only one who has seen these two?

The Story Behind the Cop Party


Seems like quite a few of us noticed the cop party at Serra Mortuary
last Friday.

While all is quiet in the uHood, the DMZ at 18th is heating up early
this year. Last Friday’s wake was for the victim of a retaliatory
shooting at 17th and Mission.

Here are the some details:……

Thank you Mission Mission for the picture:

Everybody is doing it …. Groupon at South End


Even the restaurant formerly known as Toad's has succumbed to the Groupon peer pressure.  Check out today's offer:  $20 for $40 at South End Grill 'N' Bar.  Expires Sept 8 and they clearly call out that you must order a food item (so I guess we can't just drink away our $40?).  But a limit of three per person.  Within the uHood we could buy a bunch and just eat a South End every week until September! (not that I am personally endorsing this strategy)

What is next – a groupon for Clooney's?
