“I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal.”
-San Francisco, circa 2010
Not just a big deal, a great deal.
Although I've yet to see a Going Out of Business banner draped across the Golden Gate, some of our City's businesses are willing to discount their fare 50 – 90%. We're talking some reputable spots like Luna Park, Milvali salon, Kasa Indian taquería, Azalea boutique, Philz coffee and even the Go Car tour. Who hasn't kissed the ring of Groupon, the godfather of the Entertainment Book version 2.0? But now it's time to appreciate and expose the other sites featuring a daily deal.

They offer a few classes each day… the house special is the Sunday evening candlelight yoga to ease into the work week. Arrive a bit early since they close the doors as soon as class begins to minimize interruptions.
The Slip ‘n Slide is for the burbs.
After trying to swim against the current to replace the bowling alley, the Presidio Trust is now going with the flow. They recently revealed plans to open up an urban water slide in time for summer. (No update though on Operation Pea Soup, the government-sponsored weather control station to combat the late summer fog.) The designated location is on the southeast corner of the Presidio, creatively capitalizing on the undeveloped space adjacent to the Lyon street stairs.
Director of the Presidio Trust and part-time maritime lawyer, Cherith Cutestory, shared that they are under intense pressure to get to continuous break-even by Fiscal Year 2014. He shared, “we were feeling the financial urgency and…

Mortified, a PG-13ish stage performance, features six every day people sharing what they never thought they would share. Never ever! Nothing is off limits… diary entries recounting the stalking of a high school crush, a narcissistic fantasy involving Doogie Howser, daydreamed felonies against a rival suitor, or the Naval Officer’s revelation that his hookup wasn’t actually a Thai woman. The lone requirement…
