When I was a child…

Monday, March 3rd, 2014
I bet you are thinking – Oh, really? Pink? After all this time?… Or you might sigh with relief and shed a tear, whispering – I thought you were.. dead. Or you may ask yourself – How do I work this?.. And – Where is that large automobile?.. But most would probably experience a  general sense of confusion, likely attributed to coming to terms with the banality of everyday life or overextended comfortable numbness… without Puff’n'sip! And those of you without any care for old people’s music, which we call classics, might not have even made it this far into the paragraph and resolved to a solid  WTF? assessment. 
But hold on -
this week’s Puff’n'sip is on!  We are back with Puff’n'sip Classic – just what the doctor warned you of.
We kick off @
5:11 PM from Chaya Brasserie, 132 Embarcadero @ Howard
and stroll down memory lane by
7:13 PM to Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery @ Jackson
One note, though – this is a special, rare (no kidding!) Puff’n'sip. We are rolling it out one more time, to be placed on an honorable Reserve status. What’s that, you ask? Good question! It’s the very top shelf, baby, up there in full view, yet not reachable without a stretch. Yes, it’s time to put away childish things… Oh, whom am I kidding! Just don’t have the time and stamina for our beloved weekly Puff’n'sip. But we’ll roll it out again, sometime on a very special occasion.
But this week we shall strike a classic – Puff’n'sip as the child intended. Come early for the slide show. And later AF will share his puff’n'sip scars…
And fear not for your merriment opportunities! Oh, we shall crawl! Again and again – get ready for the 9th Annual Bad Bunny Pub Crawl coming to you on April 11th!
Lots of love,
Big Red.

Getting the space spins would be epic

Friday, January 25th, 2008

There’s still fall-out from that psycho astronaut Lisa Nowak, and all our brave space folk are under intense scrutiny about their alcohol use.   The article hints at rumors that there was one occasion where two astronauts were so wasted at launch time they were a danger to themselves and the rest of the crew.

I say, as long they’re not flying the ship, our brave spaceguys and spacegals should be treated to first class service!  Free booze and spicy cocktail nuts for all of them!!!  Getting drunk on a commercial plane doesn’t make the pilot any less safe…unless you go in the cockpit, try to sit on his lap and wear his hat.  They hate that.  Usually.


Drunken SF Dining

Monday, July 30th, 2007

For all the eats in this town it is distressingly easy to strand yourself, drunken and hungry with no place to eat at the end of the night. What are your options? Go home? Feasting on turkey lunch meat and ketchup won’t fix your wagon, nor will waiting 45 damn minutes for a pizza to be delivered.

Here’s a list that can help you out.

Another map mash-up with bars and happy hour specials.  There’s a lot of blanks to be filled in here, so some of you should take the helm and enlighten the masses about your favorite watering holes!

Fun with Google Maps

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Though acceptance and generosity are hallmarks of the Puff ‘n Sip code, we’re not above a little good natured tourist hatin’ and misinformation spreadin’.  With the spirit of light hearted fun firmly invoked we present the Google Map for San Francisco Tourist Sites for People You Hate.

Puff’n'holdem update!
