Keeping public restrooms open vs. safety. Based on the reported sexual assault of a 17-year-old girl in a restroom in Garfield Square, park and rec officials are considering redeploying staff to high-crime areas, reports City Insider.

The “Through Their Lens” feature on CALIBER not only brings us this lovely photo of a couple in Dolores Park, but the photographer this week is none other than Laura Brunow Miner, the founder of Pictory Magazine. If you haven’t seen their San Francisco showcase, you really should.

And all the way across the bay, The Daily Cal brings us a profile of the band Dr. Prisoner: The Brain!, (and various other incarnations) performing at ATA Television Access. The band conjures up soundtracks to old, slightly remixed silent films.

Everyone’s favorite Mission historian over at Burrito Justice, meanwhile, digs up some old records of what used to be at 26th and Valencia. In the spaces of (now defunct) Toad’s and the Dovre Club to be exact. Wanna guess? It starts with “b” and rhymes with “ARRRRR!” (extra emphasis on the R.)

Oh, and what do you think about Weird Fish taking fried seitan off their menu? Are you as mad as mrpenguino? I haven’t seen this many pissed off vegans since we called vegan food lousy.

More pie, please.
