Consumed: The Best Things I've Eaten This Week

Enough of the fried chicken, the pizza, the burgers, the deli sandwiches bursting with a half pound of meat, that crazy-delicious kouign amann (finally figured out that this is pronounced queen a'mann) Belinda Leong is making for Four Barrel. Enough with the death-by-straight-booze cocktails. The holidays haven't even hit yet and the food trends in this city are going to kill me.

Where are the salad trucks? I might have to move to LA to recuperate from this year of recession comfort food.

Skier at Lake Tahoe

The snow's piling up in the mountains and passes of Tahoe, just begging to be carved up by skiers and snowboarders.

First Bite: Dear Mom

Restaurant bars serving artisanal cocktails are the darling of all the new dining rooms popping up in the Mission (see Wo Hing General Store, Tacolicious, and Locanda). So I was curious to check out a new opening by Thieves Tavern bartenders who are turning the trend on its head. Formerly El Rincon Latin Club, Dear Mom is a large (by Mission standards anyway) old-timey saloon that at first glance is purely for drinking bourbons and brews.

Ask the Parking Guru: How Can I Get My Money Back From An Erroneous Ticket?

Dear Parking Guru,
I got a ticket yesterday on my birthday for not curbing my wheels on Clement Street and 6th. You wrote that the law states that you only have to curb your wheels if the grade of the street is 3% or more. I couldn't find any information regarding the grade at this location. SFMTA couldn't tell me the grade of the street, nor how to ascertain that information. Please Help!

Gratefully Yours,
