Kilowatt, 16th Street, between Valencia & Guerrero

iTunes

Stitcher

Since it’s SF Giants baseball playoff time, Jeff and Andrew go back to the Kilowatt to get in full grumpy old man mode! Even though the Giants end up winning, it’s time to lament the SF Bay Guardian shutting down, restaurants blaming their closings on forced health care, and the usual nonsense. Not to worry, however, the new segment ‘Say something Positive’ is here to force optimism. Right after some negative Yelp reviews (of course).

Song Breaks:

  • Daft Punk feat. Panda Bear - Doin’ It Right
  • Tribe Called Quest - What?
  • Tony Sheridan - Take Out Some Insurance On Me, Baby
  • The Verve - The Drugs Don’t Work

Between baseball playoffs, new plagues, and stinky summer movies, there’s lots to discuss, plus new segments like ‘New Drinks’ & ‘Say Something Positive’.

AbV, 16th Street, between Albion and Guerrero

iTunes

This week, Jeff and Andrew are in a funk, partly from the general awfulness of the news today, and partly for other reasons. Times like these call for some ‘Alcohol by Volume’ or AbV.  It’s a brand new bar on 16th between Albion and Guerrero with, get this, artisan cocktails and small plates!  But hey, someone’s gotta make that formula work, right? Warning: There has not been this much old-man complaining since the Zeitgeist ep.
