Today, the Board of Supervisors will take a final vote on banning restaurants from giving away toys with Happy Meal-type kiddie orders unless nutritional standards are adhered to. Barring any last-minute changes of heart worthy of bad-guy wrestlers, the motion will pass, 8-3 -- a veto-proof majority.

This comes on the heels of San Francisco opting to remove sugary sodas from machines on city-owned land and forbidding pharmacies from hawking tobacco.

Naturally, the question arises: What will San Francisco ban next?

  • Hostess products.

    Pure evil. Your parents' generation liked it, so it must be bad. Those

    caught with Twinkies will be sent to re-education camps -- which, like

    Hostess products themselves, will last forever.

  • 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.'"
