Yo I actually live near SF (Oakland) and was wondering if anyone knew a good tattoo place that does excellent line work? (like precise geometric stuff)

I think temple in Oakland does some geo stuff, idk really, but its where all my friends go

Some dude named michael bennet used to tattoo at two spirit and did really great stuff. he moved to fresno i think but comes back every now and then. Then erik jacobsen at idle hand does some line work - not so much geometric tho.

Can anyone (with personal experience) recommend a good shoe repair/cobbler place I can go to? I live in South San Francisco, so anywhere around there to SF is fine.

My go-to is shoe stop: http://www.yelp.com/biz/shoe-stop-san-francisco

 

anthony's is also well-known and they do more specialty work, but shoe stop is sufficient. Theyve done quite a few vibram resoles for me, do a good job and cleaning and resoling dress shoes.

Warehouse sale at MAC in Hayes Valley started today. I was in a few days ago and prices were already so sweet on so many great Junya, EG, and Comme Homme pieces.

Has anybody been to Ichi sushi and Ni Bar in the Mission? I went and it was meh.

 

I agree.  I had probably the dumbest waitress i have ever encountered at a higher end restaurant.  It was unreal.  Also, i do not understand the hype.  The food was just fine at their old location, they moved and everybody said it was amazing, so we tried the new location and didn't have one thing that i would go back for.

That's a bummer... I really liked them at the old location but haven't been to the new one yet.

Dudes, I'll be staying at the W in the financial district next weekend for my fiancee's 21st. Where do I drink? Or should I take a cab to another area?

Any Norcal guys wanna tell me how Fresno is? I'm applying there for a UCSF-affiliated program and am seriously thinking about relocating for three years. Is it worthwhile or am I going to regret being that far away from a city?

It's the worst big city in California from a cultural, air quality, and quality of life index.  (no offense to anybody from Fresno, but it's pretty bad there)

Fresno and bakersfield are the armpits of California, there is nothing on earth short of an absurd amount of money you could give me to live there. From my brief understanding that you've lived all over a world, it would be quite the damper on any cultural enrichment, even if just for 3 years. 

 

Has anybody eaten at The Progress? I was invited this coming week- Not very excited but would like to hear any recommendations on which courses to choose.

Progress was decent, not over the top good. Highlights: Squab, Snapper, Lamb Ceviche, and of course the Roti.

man, i haven't been here in a long while to post. Anyways, I moved to SF from seattle about an year and a half ago. I've been living downtown, and have really enjoyed this city. I move to Barcelona in 2 weeks, and already bummed I'm leaving. However, I won't miss how dirty and disgusting living downtown has been. This city needs a thorough washing

You'd be 3+ hours away from SF and LA if you don't mind the drive. There is absolutely no reason anyone should relocate there for any amount of time unless you are working for the government base in Lemoore. Or if you're old and retiring. Even then there are better places to go die...

 

I will say there are other trash places than Fresno. Being raised there, it's not as terrible as everyone else makes it to be. There are too many other bumfuck towns in the state to say it's the absolute worst. 

 

Edit: Three years in Fresno is too long. You'd be so fucking bored in about a week

I will definitely agree that there worse "towns" in California, but if you're talking about large cities you've found a place worse than Fresno?  I know you grew up there, but i think others forget that Fresno is a pretty major city and not just a town.   There are towns between Chico and the Oregon state line which are downright freaky and hard to believe you're still in California.

california is like 5 states in one. I grew up in modesto, and that might be arguably worse than fresno. The great cities and towns of california make up about 20% of the state.

should prob skip dolores unless you got some time to kill and wanna day drink or s/t half of its closed down so everything is even mroe crowded esp on weekend - front is good, but sorta in the cut theres not much in dogpatch besides MAC (stock cdg and like engineered garment or s/t p boring) ritual coffee in the mission or the location in hayes is def my fav coffee spot as of late (avoid 4barrel people there suck and baristas are rude as fuck)
