Next Week's Weird-Ass Food Holidays ― and How to Celebrate Locally

Categories: Palmer, WTF?
Who knew? National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is Feb. 23.
Just about every day brings a different national food holiday, and next week is especially packed with weirdness. A small sampling:

Mon., Feb. 22:
It's National Cherry Pie Day; grab a juicy slice to go at Mission Pie (2901 Mission at 25th St.).

Tues., Feb. 23:
Coincidentally, it's National Banana Bread Day and National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Believe it or not, both are available for purchase at Lotta's Bakery (1720 Polk at Washington).

Weds., Feb. 24:
For National Tortilla Chip Day, we suggest hunting down some chocolate tortilla chips at Falletti Foods (308 Broderick at Fell).

Thurs., Feb. 25:
Unlike Tuesday's holidays, National Clam Chowder Day and National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day would be difficult to celebrate together. We suggest catching Sam's Chowder Mobile for the former, and scoring some triple chocolate almonds at Charles Chocolates (San Francisco Centre) for the latter.

Fri., Feb. 26:
National Pistachio Day and National Chili Day will be part of next week's TGIF celebrating, and festive folk can mark the occasion with a shard of buzzing hot dark chocolate pistachio chili bark from Chocolate Covered (4069 24th St. at Noe).
