Doggy Bag: Today's Odds and Ends
Stoner specs: Yeah, we all made fun of it -- the messenger-bag-turned-beer-cooler by Timbuk2, named for Dolores Park. Last Sunday, Mission Mission's Allan Hough actually spotted some guy using one, unleashing a string of reader comments about obnoxious hipsters befouling the, well, authentically hipsterish byways of the Mission. We know - confusing. Our favorite comment may be from Lapidgeon, who in true DP style has a suggestion for the designers at Timbuk2: when are they going to add something to keep the ganja treats warm?
Butchered: In a cut-by-cut photo guide on his 4505 Meats blog, Ryan Farr breaks down how to break down a baby lamb. The early pics are a tad disturbing, shall we say? The skinned carcass posed like an alert dog, albeit one with its head and the tips of its extremities cut off. Still, Farr makes it all come out okay in the end, thanks to chiles, herbs, and salt and pepper and some grill-y, roast-y browning reaction that makes us forget all about being freaked. Funny how meat can do that to us.
