if you live in san francisco, drop what you’re doing. RIGHT NOW. and click here.
then, make some plans tomorrow or this weekend involving this sandwich shop.
i will tell you right now that it is not for the faint of heart — only those who aspire to take anything above and beyond, one toke over the line or to the next level will love this place. ike is amazingly nice and he will treat you well — there are a lot of choices, so the website will help you decide what you are feeling. he can help you out with something if you decide to change your mind last minute, as there are about 150 combos on the menu.img_2537-pola1
i made one of my writer’s review it in this week’s issue of the paper, but the other day i needed an afternoon off so i had to drop by and see it for myself.
i ended up deciding on the “change” sandwich last minute. it was a hasty decision that i wouldn’t have made with a conscious mind, but i was so ravenous by the time i showed up that i would have eaten two pieces of beef jerky between some stale white bread.
my sandwich was the perfect texture and taste — great balance between veggies and meat. the one thing that was a little much was the bbq sauce though. i’m sure they have customers that love them for it, but it was just a bit too messy for me.
anyway, spend this weekend in the castro — do some shopping, some laying out in the sun and GO TO IKES. you won’t be sorry. [emma, lets go!]

sigh.
finally, i can update. i have had a great amount of fun, but the last week has also been a lot of work.

the weekend with aaron was super fun — we ate a lot, we hung out and drank together, we shopped and walked around the city. he met some of my closest friends finally, which was super awesome. they made him feel welcome and he loved sf so much that he is actually considering moving here! he said he will be up at the beginning of june right after his birthday. it will be perfect since it will be super sunny — it rained all weekend when he was here and that was a bit of a buzzkill, but we still had fun! my friends can’t wait until he comes back.
and as much as i had fun all weekend, i started school bright and early on monday morning. i spent 13 HOURS at school on monday. 13! it was insane. and i was one of the more organized editors. but things are shaping up quite nicely and i’m super stoked about manning the page. the first issue is going to kind of suck, but i’m pretty sure that all the future issues are going to be on point and really awesome. i will try to post the pages if i can — the designer for the paper, erika, is working really hard to make them look amazing.
other than that, school is looking like just another semester. my homework doesn’t seem too hard, my teachers seem like they’re trying to be intimidating in all the wrong kinds of ways and i’m already bored. but i only spent $80 on books this semester [that’s such a record, its ridiculous], so not a lot of reading is always good.
i’m finally having a chill night after a hectic week — being up at 6am and then going to bed after 1 every night for 5 nights is not exactly heaven. i can’t sleep in tomorrow, either — i want to make breakfast, go to the gym, go around the city, write people and catch up on life after i’ve been living in a hole for a week. i think fridays are going to be reserved strictly for getting inspired. i mean, you wanna be inspired always, don’t you? DON’T YOU?
also, i’m stoked on literary journalism.
