Last night was the Best Of San Francisco party, and of course the issue came out on Wednesday.
I was certain I was going to get a call Thursday morning saying I was fired, but that didn’t happen. The day after Best of is typically a big “restructuring” day, lots of folks get fired, but not this year. At least not yet. Now work will be back at a normal pace and I wont have to spend as much time explaining why I’m not going to come in over the weekend or why I’m not willing to stay extra late.
I don’t really care about who won what award, anything that could give a Best Burrito
award to either Taqueria Cancun or El Farolito Taqueria is fucked up. So the awards carry very little merit in my mind. note
is NOT an upscale taqueria, it’s just as fast as Farolito, and only like $.75 more expensive. That drives me nuts that they don’t win this award every year, now that they are opening up a second location maybe they’ll start to get credit for having what is easily the best burrito in the city.
One of my clients, the Church of Scientology, got an award for “Best Cult
“. Yep.. That’s my client, I think I’ll give ’em a call right now, “Hey guys, I saw your award… Congratulations! Any press is good press, right! So now you want to keep up the momentum, let’s run a two page ad thanking the city for this award and listing upcoming BART and street corner appearances!”
Shit, we’ll there’s a thousand bucks in revenue gone each week.
Someone in editorial actually said I received two votes for Best Cartoonist. Neat. I didn’t win, some guy named Don Asmussen
did, I guess it takes three votes to win or something.
Best Thai went to Osha, I bet Ta Wei’s restaurant in Benders could have had a chance if any of us new what it was called. “Thai Research Wagon” or “Enter the Wagon, Thai Research Kitchen” or “that place in Bender’s bar”.
Whatever, special issue over, only 51 more weeks till the next issue, better reserve your space now!
Tonight I’m going to see Art School Confidential with Sha-nanin at 7pm. I guess I’m going to dry a diet for the next month, apparently I can’t go wrong with chinese noodles, so… yeah. Oh speaking of Art School, Art School Sluts pretty much sucked, but Neu Wave Hookers is very very good. Three thumbs up if you know what I’m saying, and I’m sure that you do.
