It Isn't a Party Until Somebody Cries: The Week in SFoodie

• It was an unapologetic week of eating, with a tear or two thrown in for good measure. New SFoodie blogger Mary Ladd was busted gorging on the tasty but little-known savory foods at Mission Pie. Meanwhile, Matthew Stafford downed a mai tai (or two) in anticipation of summer.

• We dropped our bag lunch in the bin and checked out two places still too new to have scuff marks on the baseboards or gum under the seats: Marino in Hayes Valley and Wexler's in the FiDi.

• SFoodie blogger Tamara Palmer rocked a hairnet to take an insider's tour of the See's Candies factory in South San Francisco. Her hair has looked a little compacted ever since, but, well, somebody had to do it.

• The organizers of last Saturday's great clusterf**k (otherwise known as the Great American Food and Music Fest) issued mea culpas -- one, literally, with tears in his eyes. Peed-off commenters didn't exactly hand him a tissue.

• Not everyone was quite so weepy. The city's gearing up for next Sunday's massive Pride celebration, and SFoodie offered its own guides for navigating local LGBT food culture. Go ahead, order that third gimlet: Even before the big bash begins, it's been a week of celebration.
