Big Al’s In SF is what makes living in the city so awesome.

There is always the good with the bad, and this time, well…its time for some good, here in the best city in American, San Francisco, CA is a little tucked away deli, off-license, sandwich shop that has some of the best food around, and boy do I mean that!als1

Located on the corner of Broadway and Columbus, next to a den of whores and thieves, by that I mean the bar that turns strip club at night called the Condor, but during the day time this little shop is an awesome hang out.

It over looks the beginning of the North Beach district of the city where Jack Kerouac made some of his debuts and wrote some of his jargon, also across the street is the famous City Lights Booksellers and Publishers, a store famous for carrying local and underground books.

Big Al offers Wi-Fi, a quaint  semi-outdoor garden area to sit and enjoy your food and coffee or tea and the doods who work here are super friendly and have a very local feel to them.

They offer Hot links, soup, sandwiches, handmade salads and Kefta Tahini and about everything you could get from a little take away restaurant

Yours truly comes here quite often to enjoy the amazing food, hang out with some locals and pirate music and movies .

Its places like this that make living in the city so cool, so if your ever in San Francisco, go here and try the Kefta Tahini Panini and some of their egg salad it’s the best you will ever have.

The Death of Freedom (aka BTJunkie.org and MEGAUPLOAD)

I, Scrappy Huntington, the author of this blog, sit here at a local wifi spot just feet from where Jack Kerouac, William S. Burros and Hunter S. Thompson sat at one point in North Beach, San Francisco,  writing about revolution, rebellion and freedom, about a weird and righteous  saga, all while a vagrant plays his saxophone in Mellon collie in the background…

It’s a sad day to have to report that major blows in the freedom of information is being dealt the whole world over..   The most important sites in the entire world wide web and being attacked and shut down, BTJunkie, Quicksilverscreen, MEGAUPLOAD, all no longer exist, for the past 4 years on this blog, on the SMUG radio podcast, in the GASSED digital zine I have been preaching about download every last possible thing you can before its too late…

Piratebay.se is still up, along with a few others, please, it is your right to download, do it now before you cant… I will post a more in depth story later next week, but this is a sad day for the freedom of information.
