Plus Off the Grid: Fort Mason returns Friday, the Baked Bear's custom ice cream sandwiches arrive Saturday, and what exactly were those triangles in the sky?

PETA Schedules Protest on Market Street at Noon Tomorrow
Two "hotties" (their word, not mine) wearing only red lingerie will gather at the busy corner of Market and Powell tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 9, at noon, for PETA's Valentine's Day anti-meat protest called "Go Bananas in the Bedroom: Go Vegan." They will hand out fruit to passers-by. I don't really associate Valentine's Day with meat. (I mostly associate it with Chloe Sevigny, but also with chocolate, which is already vegan in its purest form.) And is it churlish of me to point out PETA is using sexism to sell veganism? Who cares, I just want to see them tangle with Frank Chu and the "Honah Ya Muddah and Ya Faddah" guy.

Off the Grid: Fort Mason Returns March 4
It's not just blossoming plum trees that herald the return of spring. March forth and eat food trucks beginning Friday, Mar. 4 as Off the Grid: Fort Mason returns for its 2016 season, with everything from Curry Up Now and Koja Kitchen to Frozen Kuhsterd and Boba Guys. There are 32 vendors in all, and three bars. Just because this first one happens before we change the clocks forward is no excuse!
OTG: Fort Mason, Fridays through late October, 5-10 p.m., at Fort Mason, 2 Marina Blvd, offthegrid.com

Custom Ice Cream Sandwich Shop The Baked Bear Opens Saturday
This Saturday, San Diego's The Baked Bear will throw down the gauntlet at C.R.E.A.M. and open its custom-designed gourmet ice cream sandwiches. Choose from one or two of 10 cookies — with this bear, you get to pick a top and a bottom — and one of a dozen ice cream flavors, then pick your topping and decide whether you want the whole shebang hot-pressed, all for $6 or under. Sounds pretty good, and oh yeah — there will be Fruity Pebbles. Sandwiches are free on opening day from 2-5 p.m.
The Baked Bear, 2824 Jones, 858-886-7433 or thebakedbear.com

Triangles in the Sky
Were you too busy making seven-layer dip and watching Doritos ads on TV to notice all the Doritos ads in the sky? Although slightly alien-looking, Frito-Lay hired skywriters to draw equilateral triangles high in the sky. SF Citizen has the full run-down, and that first pic looks a lot like a radiation sign to me. Do you think it had anything to do with the gay Illuminati controlling the Super Bowl halftime show?

Total Wine & More Hits Fremont 
The FBI is investigating Premier Cru in Berkeley after that pyramid scheme, but that doesn't mean the East Bay is hurting for a good wine selection. According to the Business Times, Fremont is getting a Total Wine & More this Thursday, Feb. 11. It's the biggest wine retailer chain in the country.

France Bans Supermarket Food Waste
It is now illegal for French supermarkets 4,300 square feet or larger to toss unsold food. According to the Guardian, they must now donate it to a food bank or other charity, or face stiff fines. 

Apparently, Marco Rubio's Super Bowl Party Sucked
Andrew O'Hehir, a Salon columnist and long-ago SF Weekly editor, attended Sen. Marco Rubio's Super Bowl party in New Hampshire last night. He promised to ban disco, and served "half-size Italian subs made with iceberg lettuce and Chex Mix and an intriguing grayish goop in plastic tubs identified as 'Black Bean & Cotija Cheese 6-Layer Dip'" along with "75 boxes of Little Caesar's" and "room-temperature Pepsi."

  • 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.'"
