I disagree. It was just the first movie was sooo good. But I enjoyed "Reload" twice! And pay close attention to that spoon....

Ok, maybe I'll see it. But Bubba Ho-Tep is still my first choice.

Would any local GCers be interested in joining me at either of these?

Also, I'm looking for a good coffee shop. Any recommendations?

Since you're going to Lodi, I recommend that you bring extra antihistamines or your allergy drug of choice. The pollens of Central Valley are nothing to sneeze at, pun intended.

I'll give you a few to look for.

1. Farley's at 1315 18th St. (Potrereo Hill)

2. Progressive Grounds at 400 Cortland (Bernal Heights)

3. Dolores Park Cafe at 501 Dolores (Mission)
This is across the street from a nice park and a block away from the Mission Church in Vertigo.

4. If in North Beach try The Steps of Rome on Columbus. Always a party there.

5. For a nice treat with your coffee, stop by Tartine at 600 Guerrero, but be prepared to wait in a long line if you go on Sunday.

In general, a good rule of thumb is anyplace not called Starbucks is AOK.

i would say maxfield's house of caffeine (on 17th and dolores) over the dolores park cafe...it's cheaper, the staff is nicer, and they have free wi-fi. but either cafe is nice and right next to the park.

and the top corner of dolores park, the 20th and church corner, is great for views of many kinds. you get a really nice view of the city, and on sunny days it is the spot for good-looking men to sunbathe shirtless and check each other out.

cooooool!

too bad I won't be here on Saturday.

but ooh! ooh! I saw on the werepad site that they are showing Italian horror movies at the 4 Star Friday night!

Anyone?

Which is it, after all? BUBBA HO-TEP at the Castro or the Lamberto Bava film at the 4-Star? I'll probably make an appearance at the RUNNING ON KARMA screening instead.

My Trip to San Francisco
by Andrew K.

This weekend I went to San Francisco. First I saw the Coit Tower. It is very tall. Then I went to Fisherman's Wharf and there were lots of planes. The man said it was because of Fleet Week. The planes were fighter planes but they weren't shooting each other even though sometimes they had smoke coming out of them - don't worry, they were supposed to do that.

I went to a museum what had lots of old cable cars. It was very interesting. There are lots of big hills in San Francisco. I wished I had brought a bunch of superballs I would throw them down the hills. Then I met a nice man named David. He is dpowers. His sister is pretty.

That night my friend Steve took me to a place were boys like to kiss other boys and nobody slugs them or anything. He told me there is nothing wrong with that.

One day I walked all the way across the Golden Gate Park but I never saw the bridge. David called me while I was there and told me the whole story of San Francisco in an hour. David is very smart and can talk a long time.

Then David took me to GreenCine. I wasn't going to go as I was ascared of the monkeys but it turns out there aren't really monkeys there at all. But there were movies! Lots of them! They had an entire warehouse filled with millions of movies stacked floor to ceiling on golden shelves. They had to use hot-air balloons to get to the top shelves and trained ponies to carry all the movies around. A nice lady whose name I forgot (I think it was ggsuperhero) showed me around and gave me a T-shirt.

That is how I spent my Columbus Day weekend.

The End.

michele,

As Jerry Lewis says: "Thank you nice lady"

I'm sorry I didn't remember your name and assumed you were ggsuperhero (who I'm sure is perfectly nice as well). I appreciated the tour, and was truly glad to meet you.

Thanks for the T-shirt.

I'm very sad to have missed you Mr. K! :( I don't work on Mondays (in grad school all day), so I wasn't around. Sounds like you had a great time!

Turns out I didn't see any movies after all. My househost had offered to show me lots of cool places and I figured I could watch movies in Denver. But I did see the Red Vic theater from the bus, so next time I'll know how to get there on the 33.

------------------

My househost lives in the Mission, so either of these would have been good choices. Instead, he took me to Muddy Waters on Valencia. The coffee was excellent, but the good-looking men weren't nearly as shirtless. Next time I'll check out the park.

I didn't make it to zeitgeist, but I rode past it so I'll know where it is next time.

I didn't make it to l'osteria del forno, but I walked past it so I'll know where it is next time.

I *did* make it to City Lights Bookstore and the Cable Car Museum, and was duly impressed. And David, I'm *still* having dreams about that Vietnamese place!

I'm tentatively planning on doing another trip out there in February. Maybe I can catch the things I missed the first time.
