Behold, the Lagunitas Butterfly Knife-Style Bottle Opener.
[Insert Sarah Palin joke here]
Spotted this on the blacktop of my kid’s elementary school. Damned CA public school system.

For the 1st annual Petaluma Rivertown Revival festival at Steamer Landing Park there was a loose river monster (which was later caught … see below), viking ships, SRL robots, Lagunitas, deep-fried pickles, and killer handmade crafts. If you missed it, you really missed out. One more reason to love this crazy-ass town.
This’ll be Survival Research Labs‘ first show since moving from their 25 yr home of San Francisco to Petaluma.
Mark Pauline and crew will be showing off two robots—Running Machine and Big Arm—along with “special props”. Do not miss what is already going to be a craz-fun time for peeps, geeks, and families alike.
SATURDAY, JULY 24 ~ 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Steamer Landing Park, Petaluma
The fest goes on all afternoon, with events on water and several stages on land. Check the full schedule.
Flame retarded, that is. See what I did there?
Saw this vintage Ben Cooper (aka Smock ‘n Mask) Halloween costume at the Petaluma Art & Garden Festival this weekend. No you wouldn’t garden in it. And only if you were me would you call it art and hang it on your wall. But somewhere along the lines the fest has become more about antiques and less about arty gardeny schtuff. And for this I am thankful.
Dig the green Hulk-brow mask below. See the rest »

If you are anywhere near the San Francisco Yay Area do not miss the Northern California Pirate Festival. We’ve gone all three years and have always had a blast. They turn the Vallejo waterfront into a whole pirate village with plenty of eye candy (see above), games for kids, bands, Lagunitas beer, and food. So awesome. More info.
GET IN THE PIRATE-Y MOOD
Go drink some Pirate Beer and crank this up:
Sweet fancy Moses … this little bakery is so worth the drive from SF. Hell, it’s worth the drive from Chicago.
The sticky buns are what hooked us the first time we stumbled across Wild Flour Bread Bakery. The rest of their brick oven creations are what brought us back.

“…You can sit in this chair, and as you’re watching the movie, the chair will move to left or the right or vibrate, so it makes the moviegoing experience 4-D instead of 3-D”
Almost like this classic bit from Kentucky Fried Movie:
The price for this extra-sensory experience?
It’s the final countdown. Instead of blasting Europe or referencing GOB, I’m gonna re-post this carnivalesque little ditty. See ‘ya Sunday, freaks!

What a great way to kick off Petaluma’s Butter and Egg Days festivites—an art show that invites people to interpret what the (now)famed river monster looks like. The Petaluma River Monster Project opens 4.22 and it’s just part of the Petaluma River Revival & Art Boat Festival that’s coming in June. Stay tuned.
When Mel and the boys entered their pieces they brought the camera. Here’s a sneak peek of just a clawful of creative monsters from this fantastic show …
Karen and Scott Hess entry offers photographic proof!
“This drawing was inspired by musician Arann Harris of The Green String Farm Band. He came up with the concept and I brought the idea to life. It is a futuristic interpretation of a growth hormone experiment gone bad on the downtown streets (of my hometown) of Petaluma, California, once known as the “Chicken Capital of the World“.”
