Last year when GQ Magazine said that San Francisco was experiencing the US’s most exciting food movement, it just solidified what most people already knew: San Francisco is a food lover’s paradise. In a city that some claim has more restaurants per capita than any other major city in the US, it’s no surprise that cuisine options are nearly as varied as they are abundant.
But let’s face it, most people can’t afford to eat at the likes of Gary Danko or Boulevard very often (if ever!), especially budget travelers. Luckily The City has some incredible cheap eats. From classic greasy spoon diners to Burmese food to burritos, the following are San Francisco staples that have been keeping its broke residents and visitors well-fed for years.

On July 20, 2012 I published a story about Oklahoma’s native rocker, Tyson Meade. Tyson will be embarking on his recording journey at High Schools and Universities in China soon, as we will be flying him to Hong Kong next week. We are looking forward to updates on his recording project to share with you. A little more than 2 days are left on Meade’s Kickstarter page. We are happy to share that his goal has been met. However, recording an album, producing an album, and paying musicians can get costly. Any additional funding will be helpful. To be a part of this recording project, visit Meade’s Kickstarter project.
On June 19, 2012 I shared with you about our client Mary Lonergan. She had her artwork splashed on a 9 foot by 12 foot billboard in Art Takes Times Square.
I will soon be publishing an interview with both Mary Lonergan and Tyson Meade.
To add to this, I recently entered some of my travel photography in a photo contest. It’s the One Life Photography Competition. If you note the first image at the very top with the arrow, this was actually taken in the Dokumentation Center in Nuremberg. The images include California, Oklahoma, Nova Scotia (Peggy’s Cove), and Las Vegas. To vote for my portfolio you have to be logged in and you know your vote counted when a number appears under the ‘COLLECT ME’ button.
While at the Arcadia Round Barn I took some video and will be posting about the barn with my short documentary and photos.
I will also share with you my trips to California, Las Vegas, and Canada as well. I have some great images and video to share.

She was a star and a style icon, a “dumb blonde” who was anything but and an abandoned child adored by millions. She was, of course, Marilyn Monroe and she died 50 years ago this Sunday.
And yet, she lives on — on the big screen, in advertisements, in proposed plans for salons and cafes and, of course, in the hearts of fans fascinated by her life, her beauty and her untimely death.
“People relate to her because she came from a very humble background and through her own drive pulled herself up to become one of the greatest stars of all time,” said Greg Schreiner, president of the Marilyn Remembered Fan Club.
