To Metroblogging SF
San Francisco's Culture Blog

With so many exciting things going down on a daily basis in the city of San Francisco it's always important to have a friend who is "in the know" to keep you abreast of all the latest happenings, but with so much going on one hip friend is never enough. Art openings, live music, street fairs, cool businesses, local politics, street performers, new restaurants, and odd gatherings of supreme strangeness... to keep your finger on the pulse of the greatest city on Earth you're going to need your own personal team of culture archeologists.

You're going to need Metroblogging San Francisco.

Regular visits to the site have pointed the Isotope staff in the right direction for experience expanding people, places, events, and things on many occasions which makes Metroblogging SF an invaluable resource for anyone who loves to be creating or participating in making things happen. And they have nice things to say about the Isotope as well.

"Isotope Comics debuts new comic book lounge

By far the premiere comic book store in the city, and dare I say the country, Isotope Comics has relocated to a new spot on Fell Street. Its official opening was yesterday, and you can now take a virtual tour of the new digs.

What makes Isotope Comics so bad ass? Let me count the ways:

They have a freaking LOUNGE: Sure it's a comic store, but they also have an art gallery, a workshop for creative folks, and a sweet leather sofa. And if you're at the store during certain special events, you can kick back with alcoholic beverages. In acknowledgment of the burgeoning artist hipster trend of mini-comics, Isotope offers an annual Excellence in Mini Comics award for those who have outdone themselves in the mini comics biz. They have a Comic Rockstars Toilet Seat Museum, featuring work by comic greats like Warren Ellis, Peter Gross, and Tom Beland. Need I say more? They host Mexican wrestling! And they have Seamonkeys!

So head on over there if you want to experience a comic book store like no other."
