DOUGH & CO Partners With La Taqueria

Former SFoodie contributor Omar Mamoon's egg-less cookie company DOUGH & CO has collaborated with State Bird Provisions and Pizzeria Delfina to raise money for La Cocina, and this Friday, he'll be partnering with La Taqueria to do the same, with horchata cookies. All proceeds go to the non-profit organization (where Mamoon volunteers, and whose commissary kitchen he's been using for three years).
La Taqueria and DOUGH & CO, Friday, Feb. 12, 11 a.m. until they run out, 2889 Mission, doughand.co.

Mr. Holmes and Shinola Cola Cruffin Launch Party
Detroit artisans Shinola opened their first San Francisco shop (at 722 Montgomery Street) last week, and have buddied up Mr. Holmes Bakehouse to develop a brand-new pastry, the Shinola Cola cruffin and donut. On Thursday, Feb. 11 from 6-8 p.m., the store will host a launch party for the new treat (along with Fort Point Beer), and the cronut will be available at Mr. Holmes (1042 Larkin Street) all month long. RSVP on Mr. Holmes’ site, and Lent, schment!

The Eagle Plaza Creeps Closer Toward Reality
The block of 12th Street between Folsom and Harrison was never well-used by vehicular traffic, and the plans to redevelop it as a multi-use public space called Eagle Plaza (and turn the parking lot across the street from the Eagle Tavern into a seven-story residential building) are moving forward. Socketsite has the details, including cafe seating, food trucks, an expanded porch coming off the Eagle's existing patio, and a "shady planted sidewalk." I can vouch for its shadiness.

A Response to Moon Juice Founder Amanda Chantal Bacon's Diet Of Expensive, Obscure Things
The other day, Elle profiled Amanda Chantal Bacon, the founder of Moon Juice, who subsists upon such healthier-than-thou items as heirloom raw cacao and Chaga mushrooms, and also "ferment[s] big batches of coconut yogurt and make[s] big batches of raw chocolate spiked with maca and any other medicinal herb I'm focusing on." Naturally, the internet was quick to respond: Jarrett Sleeper's parody video notes that the cost totals over $1,200.

Red Lobster Tweets!
Ain't that just something?

The Dunkin' Donuts Primary
You know that Dunkin' Donuts is coming to the Bay Area pretty soon, right? Did you also know that in Massachusetts and some other parts of New England, its hold on the popular imagination is so intense that Starbucks had trouble finding a niche? Boston.com looks at how much the campaigns are running on Dunkin', and surprise! Hillary Clinton comes out on top pretty much across the board. (The former Secretary of State didn't spend a penny at Starbucks, however.)

Florida Man Hurts 3 1/2-Foot Alligator Into Wendy's
This sure went viral overnight. Florida, the state where people try to trade alligators for beer, tie 12-foot gators to trees behind apartments, and pray to an alligator god after throwing a head into the Everglades, is now where a guy lobbed a female alligator into a Wendy's in fancy-schmancy town of Jupiter, Fla.

  • 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.'"
