Why Local Troops Needn't Worry About Wal-Mart's Bootleg Girl Scout Cookies

Should Mission panaderias panic over Girl Scouts Dulce de Leche cookies?
  • Should Mission panaderias panic over Girl Scouts Dulce de Leche cookies?
If you've been surfing the Internet today, you've quite possibly read something about Wal-Mart's new, suspiciously Girl Scout-like cookies. You may have even wondered how a giant corporation could prey on little girls like that, stealing their Thin Mints and Tagalongs with a wicked laugh.

But don't worry too much for the financial future of Girl Scouts Troop 362, which serves San Francisco, Treasure Island, and the Presidio. The 2009 cookie selling period has already passed, and 2010 pre-orders are not likely to begin until January.

Besides, with no Wal-Mart to speak of in S.F. proper, you'd have to go all the way over to Oakland (8400 Edgewater Drive at Hegenberger) for a cookie fix, and cookie cravers aren't known as a patient, delay gratification sort of lot. Locally, the Girls would be better off looking over their shoulders at crumbly competitors like Anthony's Cookies (1417 Valencia at 25th St.), Hot Cookie (407 Castro at 17th St.), and Cookie Wag.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
