{ metropolis devoured }
a tribute to my san francisco

3/4 oz scotch whiskey
3/4 oz local politics
1/4 oz public policy
1/4 oz disaster preparedness
1/2 oz alamo square

Shake over neighborhood dives & venues, strain into a chilled cocktail dress, garnish with a sprig of gov 2.0, and serve.

Telling you something you already knew...

The increasingly small town of San Francisco (seriously, don't you just feel the borders shrinking every time you run into people you don't particularly want to have run-ins with? I do...) lacks any notable access to actual drunk, blundering celebrity and celebutant messes, so "writers" who would otherwise be moderately successful gossip bloggers in LA and NYC turn their undivided attention to the next best thing we have to offer in terms of people-whose-names-you-might-recognize: people running for, or holding, local office. You know, those guys who have a hard enough time trying to get anything done thanks to financial impediments, the ever present red tape, the bureaucratic tangle? Yea, them. Now they have to watch what they wear, too, lest they be caught looking or acting not at 100% by someone who can't see much further than their own nose.

Newsflash. This isn't Gossip Girl. this is a city facing some tough decisions in the near future.
