Happy Friday Bay Area!
It was a busy week in the Bay again, and we’ve collected the best stories from the last few days to keep you entertained over the weekend.
Kick back, relax, and check out the week’s biggest stories here:
Apparently you do not want to cross Kaep on Twitter. The 49ers quarterback lashed out at a fan who trolled him on the social media site, saying his “ab workout won’t help find open receiver”. Kaep quick fired with a three-pronged message. Ouch.
Do you hear that? That’s the sound of a thousand mouths watering. This March 15, the Bacon and Beer Festival is coming to Oakland’s Jack London Square. Bring your sweatpants, and remember: this festival is a marathon, not a sprint (though you may want to plan on beginning your exercise regimen the next day).
To us, nothing says happy like sunshine (or fog!) and living on the coast. So whatever, some people decided California isn’t the best, happiest state in the U.S.? They’re definitely just jealous.
A situation that could have been very bad was immediately corrected when John Green, the quirky author of The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns realized he had accidentally (he explains) plagiarized a 13-year-old girl and made a profit off of it. He recorded a video in response, and as you can see, it looks like he did right by her.
San Francisco’s answer to SXSW is finally starting next week (this weekend, more accurately) and the amount of events is staggering. Don’t worry, between acts like Toro Y Moi, Giraffage, and the newly-announced Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, we’ve got the week’s best (and cheapest) events laid out for you.
