It’s 7:40 a.m., 50° and headed to 70°. It’s Friday and the sun will be out all day! Details are here.
I think we can soon start calling 2012 the year of the pickle. The crunchy green vegetables are everywhere, from your plate to your cocktail glass. 7×7 magazine has a short piece about the Mission man behind Boozely’s Pickles:
Brad Koester has two loves: pickling and bicycling. And he managed to make a business combining the two. Koester is the owner, founder, chef, and bicycle delivery guy for Boozely’s Pickles.
Chances are you’ve had one of Boozely’s products, maybe without knowing it. Koester provides all the green beans for Zeitgeist Bloody Marys, about three cases per week (way to drink, San Francisco!). “They pretty much clear me out every week,” says Koester, who operates his small batch pickle business out of the Mission.
And in health news, San Francisco elementary school students are not getting the exercise they should, according to the SF Appeal:
In San Francisco, a study released Thursday by Shape Up San Francisco found that the city’s elementary school students are not getting enough physical activity.
The state mandates that elementary school students should partake in 200 minutes of physical education classes every two weeks, or an average of 20 minutes a day.
To undertake the study, Shape Up San Francisco, which is staffed by the city’s Department of Health, partnered with the San Francisco Unified School District and the University of California at San Francisco.
