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.

It's on like Donkey Kong...

D espite my general leaning toward original content, I would be terribly remiss if I didn't make a remark on the same quote that every single San Francisco politico with internet access has shared, tweeted, blogged, or favorited in the course of the last twenty four hours:

"It's on like Donkey Kong." - Chris Daly

My first post in this blog, and the very reason for starting (and stalling) it, was made from Chris' campaign office in 2006, where I lost any appreciation for pizza that I may have previously had (though somehow not for cheap Chinese food from the questionable hole in the wall across from the campaign office on 16th Street.) Somehow my appetite for local politics remained - a surprise to me, too.

Since then, many things have changed, so it's comforting to know that I can always count on some to remain steady. Chris has always been, and will always be, the most passionate and human person in this grown up local political world, and he will always be the biggest show in town. Just see for yourself:
