When we last left crazy-ass Kumar (Kal Penn) and his more straitlaced college pal Harold (John Cho), at the end of the 2005 stoner epic Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, they'd just victoriously satiated their munchies with enough sliders to block a rhino's colon. That movie was a classic bong-wielding buddy road-trip flick — Question: How long does it take two potheads to get to a drive-through? Answer: Neil Patrick Harris on ecstasy — that was improbably hailed by serious critics as a multicultural breakthrough. Read more »

Lick your pickle, kids

Hey, kids! Can you feel the heat? Ready to cool down with a nice tart treat? Then wrap your lips around a big frozen pickle.

Yep, that's right -- you'll be cool as a cucumber with this doozy: The Pickle Sickle, which despite it's name is NOT a preserved fruit bearing grim death. It's a Popsicle made of picle juice, which the makers tout as a healthy alternative to sugar-laden frozen treats. Read more »

The Giants suck. So do the A's. But it could be a fun season.

By A.J. Hayes

How’s this for sunny spring time forecast: for the first time since the mid-1980s, both the Giants and A’s will enter the major league season without a sliver of a hope of contending for a playoff slot. Read more »

We (heart) Horseface

Kerchiefs. Gezundheit! We've been reticent to write about one of our favorite local designers, Mica Phelan aka Horseface, because he's just so damn popular -- no one is anyone in this town without a House of Horseface bandanna hanging somewhere off their body. And we'd never cave in to that kind of popularity. Kidding! Read more »

Not No Wave: These are ghost punks

By Vanessa Carr

With a storm of eerie electronics and crashing beats, otherworldly sounds that clang like metal pipes, and a palette of weird effects, it's no wonder Brooklyn/Chicago-based trio These Are Powers are calling their trance-inducing incantations "ghost punk."

Newsom to clubs: Curb it!

Bad partiers! Go to your room!

Today our former pAArtying mayor (bitter?), himself a nightlife magnate, proposed some rather sketchy "Nightlife Reform Legislation" aimed at, he says, curbing all the violence going on in the vicinity of clubs. Because nightclubs are really the ground zero of violence in this city, of course. Read more »

Clubs: All aboard for Trannyshack Reno

Were you at Trannyshack this past Tuesday? Gurl, you missed it. Miss Juanita More put on a fierce and seamless 40 minute extravaganza of "Minnie the Moocher" Victrola soul-era tributes, complete with her signature "pass out spliffs to the crowd" move. It was all pretty breathless. And my pashmina reeked of weed! Read more »
