A Sausage Party at Omnivore Books; Meat Sweats Galore at CatHead BBQ's Rib-Off

Plus, misguided tourists swarm Lori's Diner and Peanutmilk may make a comeback.


UNION SQUARE— Has anyone who lives here been to Lori's Diner lately? No? Apparently there are hordes and hordes of tourists using selfie sticks to snap unfocused photos of themselves in front of it. Bold Italic wrote an Open Letter to the Hordes of Tourists Photographing Lori's Diner, begging them to reconsider.  [Bold Italic]

SAN FRANCISCO— Peanutmilk, the magical nut milk with curative properties may be on its way back to shelves in San Francisco. The family behind the closed KK Cafe at Haight and Divisadero has launched a Kickstarter. If they meet their fundraising goal, they plan to buy the pricey machine required to produce and package their  "Signs and Wonders" Peanutmilk on a mass scale. Fans of the mystical liquid claim that it's helped cure ills like cancer, AIDS and hangovers— also, that it's delicious. [Hoodline]

MISSION— It's not a rip off, it's a RIB off. CatHead's BBQ is hosting their 2nd Annual Rib-Off, featuring a line-up of SF's best BBQ masters, including Smokestack BBQ, Baby Blues BBQ, 4505 Burgers & BBQ and Southpaw BBQ. There'll also be bands, prizes and beer from Fort Point Beer Company. Get a case of the meat sweats this Saturday, January 24 from 12pm- 6pm at 1665 Folsom St. Buy tickets here.  [EaterWire]

NOE VALLEY— For those more interested in creating their own meat sweats at home, Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats will be talking sausage at Omnivore Books. He'll be signing copies of his shiny new book, Sausage Making: The Definitive Guide with Recipes and giving a free demo. The event is Saturday, January 24 from 3pm-4pm at Omnivore Books. [EaterWire]
