  • SF Day of Gluttony Challenge: Dinner (Part 4)

    Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012 10:29AM / Video

    By Harry

    After Happy Hour both Bruce and I needed to drop off our motorcycles.  We didn’t want to be irresponsible.  So like good boys we dropped off our bikes, but now we had to finish our drinks as well as our food.  At Bar Crudo we had wine, soft shell crab, and half a dosen oysters which didn’t hurt as bad as before.  The next stop was Zero Zero where we met my friend Tim the general manager.  Tim was so excited to see us he threw in an arugula salad, not knowing that we had to finish everything on our plate.  Fearless, team OH dove right in finishing our cocktails, ham plate, and salad.  Oola was just next door and Bruce had a few friends waiting for us.  More cocktails and brussels sprouts with bacon filled the top layer of our tummies.

    The night was getting fuzzy and our footage was getting darker and darker.  Bar Agricole was next and we knew cocktails were coming.  Anchovies with more salad, cocktails, and shots were dealt (which didn’t make the video because I could barely see straight at this point).  Taxi!  Off we went to Beretta.  Bruce has been a bar tender in SF for over a decade.  Industry peeps like to get each other drunk.  Beretta provided an amazing seafood soup called a Cioppino, and more booze.  I couldn’t keep what we had straight because, well as inappropriate as it may be, I’ve blacked out at this point.  The night was patchy and I seriously don’t remember taking a shot of Fernet Branca (another SF Industry classic digestive).

    There were only two more places on the list and I needed more food.  Ironic isn’t it.  After eating all day I needed more food to soak up that alcohol that I’d ingested.  My climbing buddy Jay the owner of Maven kept Maven open a little late for us.  But, we didn’t make it before the kitchen closed.  Not to worry Jay had booze to give.  A specialty Burbon made for Maven.  I was beyond hammared.  One more to go.  Some how I managed to talk my way into NOPA, after the owner told me I was too drunk to film.  Which isn’t far from the truth, I was pretty smashed, but I’m good at filming even when I’m drunk surprisingly.  Our final stop was booze free (It was the only way I could convince him to let us in).  I ordered a NOPA Burger and Bruce shared a crepe, a cheesecake, and some sort of brule with our friends Vanessa, Annalee, and Morgan.  Somehow, I managed to consume a full plate of burger and fries with little help.

    I was relieved.  The Day of Gluttony Challenge was over! I was a free man.

    DOG It’s been an experience.  I will remember you forever and hopefully so will everyone else…

  • SF Day of Gluttony Challenge: Happy Hour (Part 3)

    Thursday, Jul 5, 2012 4:10AM / Video

    By Harry

    For Happy Hour we wanted to include places that were great for cocktails, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.  Since Team OH was on motorcycles we decided it was a good plan to start off with no alcohol.  Four Barrel‘s  slow bar is a place I find myself once a week.  There isn’t a place in the city that has the same hand crafted bean and barista philosophy as Four Barrel.  It’s a coffee snob’s dream.  Next was ice cream at Smitten Ice Cream.  Smitten has the only made to order ice cream in the city.  Bruce was so full at this point that the thought of ice cream was too much for him.  But, as you’ll see in the video he still enjoyed his scoop of ice cream.

    Alcohol started at Magnolia Gastro Brew Pub.  Though neither of us finished our beer/cider drinks we did finish the amazing “Devils on Horseback” and “Pickled vegetables,” which tantalized our taste-buds.  We had three more places to go before ditching our motorbikes.  Alembic set us up with an amazing cocktail (Promissory note) and duck hearts over pineapples.  This is one of my favorite appetizers in all of SF.  Next we went downtown to Jaspers Corner Tap, where we were greeted with baby back ribs and yet another amazing cocktail (Pale Rider).  Hands down the best ribs I’ve had in SF.  Our final stop for happy hour was yet another favorite cocktail bar, Cantina, where Duggan made us a pisco sour that would put any Peruvian in awe.  18 down and only 7 more to go, the finish line was in site, but “It ain’t over until it’s over”…

  • SF Day of Gluttony Challenge: Lunch (Part 2)

    Wednesday, Jun 27, 2012 6:10AM / Video

    By Harry

    Lunch in San Francisco has to be quick but still tasty.  First up was American Grilled Cheese (AGC).  Heidi Gibson, the head chef of AGC, was an award winning grill cheese chef.  Naturally she has the ability to craft the perfect grilled cheese, even on a gluten free bread; which is made from scratch every day.  Next was Local Mission Eatery (LME).  LME was known to be one of the most local and sustainable restaurants in the city.  Not wanting another sandwich The Hobos decided to order a salad.

    Feeling the time crunch, B & H decided to call in the next order at Rosamunde, the sausage specialists of the city.  Grilled cheese, salad, and a sausage couldn’t be complete without a taco.  But, there is more then just one kind of taco in SF.  Team OH hit Namu (Korean taco), and Little Chihuahua (California Mexican style taco), to get outstanding SF food creativity. The day sin’t even half over and The Hobos are flailing.  Happy hour is still to come and who knows what will happen when alcohol is involved…

  • SF Day of Gluttony Challenge: Breakfast (Part 1)

    Wednesday, Jun 20, 2012 8:57AM / Video

    By Harry Team OH started our “Day of Gluttony Challenge” (DOG) at 6:30 am.  Unlike Bruce, I ate at around 9pm the night before.  Let’s just say I was a bit cocky about my eating abilities.  First stop, Matching Half, for an espresso.  Jason, the owner of Matching Half pulled our first espresso to kick off the DOG.  Following Matching Half was Plow.  Tucked away in Potrero Hill, it’s quite possibly my new favorite breakfast spot in the city.  Not thinking twice, we ordered the Chinese Breakfast.  Third on the list was the SF classic, Brenda’s.  To our demise, we ordered Shrimp and Grits.  As delicious as this breakfast was, it was a terrible decision to start off our DOG with eating two of the biggest breakfast dishes in SF.  So, when we hit Broulett’s Larder we decided to take it easy, and go with the yogurt and quinoa granola. Making sure we were still caffeinated, we got Gibraltars at Blue Bottle Ferry.  Gibraltars are Blue Bottle‘s signature drink.  For my coffee enthusiasts, it would be the equivalent to a Cortado (Spain) or Flat White (Australia).  Our final breakfast item was my favorite spring roll in town – at Out the Door, Slanted Door’s take out kiosk.  Full from our first six locations, we began to doubt that we could complete the challenge.  But we still pushed on.  Next stop – lunch at American Grilled Cheese… Buy the music on Mandeon‘s Sound Cloud.

  • Hong Kong Pole Dancing: IPC Hong Kong Competition

    Tuesday, Jun 12, 2012 9:15AM / Video

    By Harry

    In April I had the honor of going to one of the most inspiring competitions.  Fortunately, I was videoing the event.  Since we’re all about alternative movement on OH, I wanted to share this video with all of you.  Most of us don’t think that pole dancing is a sport, but I’d argue that it deserves Extreme Sport status.  But, don’t take my word for it.  Check out this little teaser I put together for the documentary…
