So many restaurants I have not heard of like Benu is SF, Manresa in Los Gatos, Saison in SF, and Coi in SF....
All look exciting and in need of rolls of cash to eat there....
Maybe I'll save up for my 60th birthday SF extravaganza, though these might be closed, no longer good, or spun off a legion of new Michelin 3* joints...
the futures so blight....
havent watched any basketball this season but i like to check out the scores now and again. just saw that carmelo anthony has 43 points 3 minutes into the second half. how many players have scored 60 points in a game?
This feat has been accomplished 62 times in NBA history. Twenty different players have scored 60 or more points in a game. Only four players have scored 60 points on more than one occasion: Wilt Chamberlain 32 times, Michael Jordan five times, Kobe Bryant five times, and Elgin Baylor four times.
remember those simpler times when you could ogle scarlett johansson and drink your bubbly water in peace?
just happened to notice that jimmy fallons guest tonight are jonah hill, dick cavett and wylie dufresne.

With the release of “Nashville” and “Jaws,” the summer of ’75 delivered both the culmination — and the beginning of the end — of that period. “Nashville” seemed to incarnate a film buff’s hopes for American movies. Here was an artist putting the machinery of popular culture to work for the sake of art, yet entering into the spirit of popular culture and partaking of its energy too. That was the dream: the power of popular art combined with the complexity of fine art, high and low not at war, and not blurred indistinguishably into each other, but embracing.
