Mayor Ed Lee may ask restaurants and bars to limit booze sales during the game, for fear of rioting

To the outcries of 49ers fans everywhere, some outlets are now reporting that the mayor of San Francisco may ask the city's bars and restaurants to limit alcohol for Super Bowl spectators.

Before you cry into your jersey, the San Francisco Chronicle says there's no guarantee this will happen. The Chronicle reports Mayor Ed Lee may stay in San Francisco to oversee the city's response to the Super Bowl — and to make sure rioting, like what happened after the Giants' World Series win, doesn't get out of hand. "[Lee is] just suggesting that all business owners serve responsibly, and most businesses do," said spokesperson for Lee, Christine Falvey, to the Chronicle. And the Golden Gate Restaurant Association (which includes SF's bars) noted that bars and restaurants with liquor licenses are required to cut off "visibly intoxicated" customers.

Surprisingly, businesses seem to be on board with Lee's potential plan to limit alcohol to avoid more riots, despite the financial sacrifices. The last alcohol ban in San Francisco was Halloween 2007, after riots tore through San Francisco the previous Halloween. Thirty-four restaurants and bars closed in the Castro District, willingly. Will a ban prevent you 49ers fans from boozing it up at your sports bar?

'It's barely a Band-Aid': life inside San Francisco's first sanctioned tent camp

Jasmine Villereal needed a shower, and on the other side of this chain-link fence in the middle of San Francisco there were showers.

It should have been perfect: these showers were for homeless individuals living in tents. Villereal was a homeless individual living in a tent. But while her tent sat crammed on a narrow sidewalk alongside more than a dozen others three blocks north, considered a blight by officials and neighborhood residents, the tents surrounded by this chain-link fence were city-approved.

The Safe Sleeping Village is one of San Francisco’s new officially sanctioned homeless encampments, a rare initiative announced by Mayor London Breed in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Occupants of the 70 tents spaced out in socially distanced, painted squares in the shadow of City Hall have access to steady meals, electricity to charge their phones, toilets, fresh water, hand-washing stations, healthcare – and those much-desired showers.

But for many, the project comes as too little, too late.

Breed launched the plan earlier this month as a solution to a homelessness crisis compounded by an outbreak. With shelters no longer taking in new guests during the pandemic and forced to reduce capacity by 76% to adhere by social distancing guidelines, the number of tents throughout the city had leapt by at least 71%.

In the historically underserved Tenderloin neighborhood, a low-income community in the heart of the city experiencing the brunt of the crisis, tents have increased by 258%.

“While in normal times I would say that we should focus on bringing people inside and not sanctioning tent encampments, we frankly do not have many other options right now,” Breed said. “Having places with resources serving people in the neighborhood is better than unsanctioned encampments.”

But with the city’s fraught history of encampment sweeps and move-along orders, few within a homeless community of more than 8,000 individuals could trust the city to do right by them either. Villereal, 40, for one, was not getting a shower any time soon.

“I don’t live here,” she shrugged at the Safe Sleeping Village, which is guarded by staff from the not-for-profit Urban Alchemy. “That’s what they told me.” With the stay-at-home order, and shelters and gyms with those facilities closed, it’s been more than a month since Villereal has had a real shower. She’s been forced to take “bird baths”, washing up in public water fountains and bathroom sinks.

“Look at my hands,” she said mournfully, gazing down at her dirt-blackened fingertips. “I try, I really do, but look at them.”

Bans on Alcohol Advertising Don’t Make Much Sense

The Super Bowl has come and go, and watchers were treated to some of the best commercials of the year. Once again, among the ads’ sponsors were producers of alcoholic products who many times make some of the highest rated commercials of the game.

The Super Bowl has come and go, and watchers were treated to some of the best commercials of the year. Once again, among the ads’ sponsors were producers of alcoholic products who many times make some of the highest rated commercials of the game.

But this year, something new happened – an increase in regulatory pressure on alcohol advertising. As a researcher who studies advertising, particularly alcohol advertising, I think this increase in regulatory pressure doesn’t make much sense.

The Los Angeles City Council recently passed a ban on alcohol advertising on municipal property, substantially reducing the number of outdoor advertising locations available to alcohol advertisers.

Philadelphia already has in place a similar ban, and in San Francisco alcohol advertising is not permitted on any public transportation.

Around the world, Turkey recently enacted restrictions prohibiting not only the advertising, but also the sale of alcoholic beverages in certain settings such as sponsored activities and festivals. Even the placement of alcohol logos was restricted to only certain establishments.

Russia banned alcohol advertising on television, radio, the Internet, public transportation, billboards and in all print media in an attempt to affect that country’s high level of consumption.

All of these restrictions and bans on alcohol advertising come at a time when total per capita consumption of alcohol in the U.S. has remained mostly constant during the past 40 years, and worldwide consumption has been stable since 1990.

So why the most recent concern regarding alcohol advertising?

Research studying the impact of alcohol advertising bans on the reduction of alcohol consumption has provided conflicting results.

For example, a comprehensive study in 17 countries for the years 1977-1995 showed that advertising bans did not decrease alcohol consumption or abuse.

However, in a similar study that examined data from 20 countries over 26 years, researchers concluded that alcohol advertising bans decreased alcohol consumption during the period they examined.

So it appears that ad bans are a potential solution for policymakers interested in reducing alcohol consumption, although the evidence shows inconsistent results. But this doesn’t take into account a more important issue.

With per capita consumption remaining mostly constant during the past 100 years, it seems clear that in the established, mature marketplace for alcohol, competition for a greater share of sales is intense and constant.

Advertising has become the most visible ingredient of the overall marketing strategy. Companies try to increase their revenue through stronger, more innovative marketing efforts.

For example, liquor brands that took advantage of the recent ability to advertise in the electronic media saw market share gains as a result.

Permitting the market to operate freely encourages competition not only among brands but among categories of alcoholic beverages as well.

Published studies have provided evidence of consumption changes not only between brands but also across categories of alcoholic beverages during the past 40-plus years.

All of this has taken place without much change in per capita consumption for more than a century.

Proposals to restrict or curtail truthful, commercial messages about a legal product work against rational public policy.

By limiting restrictions and allowing the market to function freely, companies can compete using advertising and media strategies while not affecting the total amount of alcohol consumed. Consumers are given the choice of what products to buy and the ability to decide based on competitive product offerings.

Although criticisms of alcohol advertising and promotional methods abound, implementation of only remedies that would restrict or overly regulate such communication activities usually do not have the desired effect of reducing consumption.

Instead, such restrictions would only serve to limit a company’s ability to employ marketing communication strategies as a means to gain market share.

A more logical alternative is to get as much information as possible out to the public about the problems of alcohol abuse and misuse.

The way to get that information out to the society is to get rid of restrictions or bans on communication about alcohol and encourage all viewpoints to communicate so our society makes an autonomous, rational choice on alcohol.

Bans on alcohol advertising simply don’t make a lot of sense.

Why not opt for cocktails inspired by this year’s competitors: the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers? If you’re up for a little rivalry on the field and in your glass, the following cocktails are inspired by each of the teams competing. And if you’re simply rooting for Jennifer Lopez, Super Bowl commercials or no one at all, there’s also a cocktail for you.

Gold Rush Cocktail

If there were a day when a tasty, simple cocktail is absolutely called for, it would be Super Bowl Sunday. This 49ers-inspired cocktail is created using an ultra easy-to-make honey syrup and two other ingredients.

From its famed barbecue to its celebrated jazz music, one could say that Kansas City is deliciously complex. Also deliciously complex? This hot toddy made using Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye.


1 ½ part Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye

Candied Ginger (for garnish)

Heat 7 parts water over stove in a large pot. Once water is hot, add remaining ingredients into pot and stir until flavors are absorbed. Strain mixture into ten individual 12 oz hot drink mugs. Garnish with candied ginger. *To create Honey Simple Syrup, combine equal parts honey and equal parts water over heat until dissolved.

Pina Cocolada

If you love pina coladas (and aren’t rooting for any team this Sunday), then the Pina Cocolada, created by author Daphne Oz, is just the drink for you.


8 ounces Vita Coco Pressed Coconut Water

4 ounces organic coconut cream

8 ounces white rum (such as Bacardi)

2-3 cups of ice to blend to desired slushy consistency

Bourbon cherries for garnish (optional)

Place glass in freezer to chill while you prepare the drinks. In a high powered blender, puree all ingredients until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency. Divide among frosted glasses. Top with a cherry on top as a garnish.

Think Outside The Box For The Best Super Bowl Food And Beverage Pairings

Aside from what promises to be an exciting football match, this year’s Super Bowl LIV offers a unique opportunity to enjoy food and beverage from some of the country’s most iconic cuisines.

Cioppino is an Italian-American seafood soup originating from San Francisco.

Food historian MM Pack, who spends considerable time in San Francisco as a private chef, has seen her share of locally themed parties. “First thing that comes to mind is crab,” she says, as this is the peak of Dungeness crab season in the Bay Area.

“Crab Louie is a classic, and you can serve it with crackers or sourdough bread, which is totally San Francisco,” she says. Cioppino, a seafood stew sold on Fisherman’s Wharf by Italian immigrants, would work served individually or as part of a buffet. Pack also suggests a platter of dim sum as a tried and true crowd pleaser. All these dishes would pair fabulously with a crisp California white wine.

Scott Ungermann, brewmaster at San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Company, thinks the ultimate pairing to represent the 49ers would be clams steamed with - and accompanied by - Anchor Steam Beer. The beer derives its unusual name from the 19th century when “steam” was a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast under primitive conditions and without ice.

Anchor's California Lager boasts a citrusy flavor that pairs perfectly with spicy foods.

While the origin of the name remains shrouded in mystery, it likely relates to the original practice of fermenting the beer on San Francisco’s rooftops. In lieu of ice, the foggy night air naturally cooled the fermenting beer, creating steam off the warm open pans. Today, Anchor Brewing is one of the very few American breweries that still employs open fermentation on a commercial scale.

“Anchor Steam also goes great with cracked crab or ribs (see basting recipe below) or anything, really,” says Ungermann. “It pairs well with food due to its exceptional balance of sweetness and bitterness, maltiness & hoppiness.”

Baykeeper is a San Francisco style IPA, with proceeds benefitting the preservation of the Bay.

Ungermann suggests other food and beer pairings for the big game, including his California Lager with chips and salsa and guacamole (“the crispness and drinkability of the lager goes great with spicy foods,” he says) and the recently re-released Baykeeper IPA with fish tacos. “This is a beer for the Bay, with fragrant hops and a pleasing bitterness to complement the fish tacos perfectly.”

The Anchor website has a host of recipes that include their beers as ingredients, with classic drinking pairings.

For Chief’s fans, BBQ reigns supreme in bars and tailgates. The Kansas City’s barbecue style can be traced back to Henry Perry, who in the early 1920s started barbecuing in an outdoor pit adjacent to his streetcar barn Kansas City barbecue is seasoned and slow-smoked over wood, served with a thick tomato-based sauce that is the signature of the regional style.

Kansas City style barbeque ribs with sweet potato fries

“Kansas City BBQ is famous for a sweet BBQ sauce and saucy [brisket] burnt ends,” says Evan LeRoy, chef and co-owner of acclaimed BBQ trailer LeRoy and Lewis in Austin. “Pair with anything that can cut fatty meat and the sweetness of the sauce.”

For such a pairing, Missouri native Andy Christiansen, wine and beer manager at Central Market Westgate suggests Italian Lambrusco. “My most distinct Kansas City food memories include visiting two iconic restaurants, Arthur Bryant’s for BBQ and fried chicken from Stroud’s. With either of these, an amazing beverage pairing would be fizzy red Lambrusco from Italy,” he says.

Historically, people have known Lambrusco to be sticky sweet, but now any good wine shop should have a range of offerings from dry to sweet and sometimes tart or a little funky. Less typical, but worth seeking, are rosé or white versions.

Ruby red sparkling Lambrusco pairs with rich or sweet foods because of its balanced acidity and . [+] sweetness.

“With typical sweet, tangy Kansas City BBQ sauce, I’d pair with a Lambrusco that has some perceivable level of sweetness but also refreshing acidity. The same idea would work for great hot chicken wings or ones with sweet teriyaki sauce,” he adds.

“For me, a dream Super Bowl party would have at least four or five different flavored chicken wings and equal number of different Lambrusco,” says Christiansen. “Trying the many pairing combos would be a blast and something to focus on if the game becomes a blowout. Most Lambrusco check in at lower alcohol levels than other wines, which can be a critical factor if you’re consuming over the entire period of a football game.”

Christensen also came across this Lambrusco based cocktail that can be made by the pitcher for easy serving. “It sounds delicious and the color scheme is perfectly suited for this year’s superior Super Bowl team but is close enough to work for 49er fans too.”

Different flavored chicken wings with dipping sauces and celery sticks pair perfectly with . [+] Lambrusco.

Beer is always a no-brainer for a Super Bowl party, and Christensen has brought in extra quantities of Anchor and 21st Amendment for San Francisco fans as well as Boulevard to represent Kansas City. “I’ll likely be bringing some Boulevard “Tank 7” to a watch party of ex-Missourians. It’s an American Saison that’s fruity but not too sweet with balancing pepper notes. However, at over 8% abv, I’ll likely only be having one or two before switching to their best selling and more sessionable unfiltered wheat.”

Hopeful regarding his team emerges victorious, Christiansen would love to celebrate the Chiefs victory as the clock runs with something special. “Anything of a 1970 vintage to crack open, as that was the last time they won. In lieu, some delicious Champagne will have to do!”

Scott Ungermann’s rib basting recipe

1 bottle Anchor Steam beer

2 tablespoons of your favorite spicy mustard

A few shakes of black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir and simmer until ready to baste. Baste ribs frequently on the grill, with beer in hand.

Soup Up Your Big Game Menu with These Superb Bowls

The big game. Whether you like it or not, you’ll probably be watching. If not for the football, then for the commercials. Or maybe the halftime show (if only to marvel at how amazing J-Lo still looks). Or maybe you’ll show up for the food. You’re bound to be surrounded by bountiful spreads of wings and dips and pizza for miles. But you don’t need a stadium made of sandwiches or a watermelon sculpted like a helmet to enjoy the big game.

What if there are other food options and what if they are right there in the name of the game? I’m talking, of course, about soup. Superb soup, served in bowls! Yes the wordplay is corny, but these recipes definitely are not, unless you actually want to add corn to them—then go ahead, why not?!

If you have a vested interest in the game, you may want to go with team-themed options. But we’ve got plenty of delicious choices for those who don’t care who wins.


San Francisco fan or not, this seafood-packed soup is a clear winner. The broth is full of garlic and tomato flavor, and you can play around with the specific fish and shellfish depending on what’s available at the store. But if you’re going for a truly baller big game menu, you definitely need to work lobster in there. Get our Cioppino recipe.

Milpitas High School graduate headed to Super Bowl on behalf of Buccaneers

When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make history playing in the first Super Bowl at their home stadium, a high school in Milpitas will be rooting for one player in particular. Buccaneers Nose Tackle Vita Vea graduated from Milpitas High School.

MILPITAS, Calif. - When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make history playing in the first Super Bowl at their home stadium, a high school in Milpitas will be rooting for one player in particular. Buccaneers Nose Tackle Vita Vea graduated from Milpitas High School.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the Super Bowl and most people know Quarterback Tom Brady is from San Mateo. There is another NFL player with Bay Area roots, Defensive Lineman Vita Vea of Milpitas.

"To have a player play in the Super Bowl, we are just so ecstatic for him," said Milpitas High School Football Coach Kelly King.

Before the 25-year-old landed in the NFL, he spent his high school years playing for Milpitas High School. He was 235 pounds back then, a running back and wildcat quarterback.

"When he first stepped onto the field, he hadn’t really played before," said King. "You can obviously see he&aposs something special for his size and mobility. His athleticism he has it all."

"The dream was the NFL and the Super Bowl is like the cherry on top," said Vita’s brother Sifa Vea.

Now 6𠆔" and just shy of 350 pounds, Vea was the 12th pick in the NFL draft in 2018. He’s considered one of the league&aposs best defensive tackles who scored a touchdown last season.

He was out for most of this season after suffering a broken ankle back in October. He was off the injured reserve list Friday just in time to play in the NFC Championship game.

"I’m happy when the game is finished, his ankle is still okay so he can make it to the Super Bowl," said Vita’s Father Sione Vea.

Vea facetimed his brother after Sunday’s wearing the NFC championship shirt and smoking a cigar. His success is attributed to his hard-working parents who immigrated from Tonga.

"We go to Milpitas High," said Milpitas High Quarterback John Vogel. "He was here and know he&aposs playing for the Super Bowl that’s a goal."

For current players at Milpitas High, he is a role model and an inspiration. They’re notes of his moves hoping to work just as hard.

"It’s a dream not just for the school, not just for the football team, for the community of Milpitas," said Milpitas High Safety & Wide Receiver Andrew Tellez.

Legend has it that one of the first places in the U.S. to serve classic Irish Coffee was San Francisco, which has embedded the drink deeply into the city's culture. Serve this drink from Cookie and Kate at halftime to give your guests a boost of energy and to keep spirits high into the third quarter of the game. You can find the complete recipe here.

Created in San Francisco, steam beer is an alternative way of brewing beer in which actual steam is used to get it to ferment faster. Anchor Brewing makes the steamed beer in San Francisco and sells it nationally, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own couch.

Unknown but almost certainly not originally from the city of San Francisco in California.

Rob Gronkowski reveals why Julian Edelman could return to the NFL

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will open their season against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Sept. 9. FOX 13’s Scott Smith breaks down the rest of Week 1.

Gronkowski can draw from his own experience. He retired from the NFL after the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII and explained that it was the dramatic injuries he was battling that made him decide to walk away from the game. He was gone for a year but then was traded to the Buccaneers after Tom Brady signed with the team.

The tight end told ESPN on Monday why he thinks Edelman may have a change of heart on retirement. 

"Jules was an unbelievable player and he literally gives it his all for his teammates," he told the sports network, "I just wish the best for Julian to heal up. Obviously, in his little press conference thing, he said he was going to go until the tires fall off and he sure has. So I’m hoping he heals up. I want the best for him. I’ve been in that situation before."

The old adage goes that time heals all wounds and "Gronk" thinks that is exactly what Edelman needs -- time.

"I believe, if Julian truly heals up whatever’s hurting on him, and he fully heals and feels good, I think he’ll be back," said Gronkowski, "I don’t know, see why he wouldn’t be back, eventually in the future. Maybe a year or two away. Let me tell you: He’s just a competitor. So I say if he heals up 100 percent and feels good, I think he’ll be back in the NFL."

Brady even teased Edelman’s potential comeback during the NFL Draft-a-thon virtual charity event last month.

Former star defensive back Deion Sanders said he couldn’t believe Edelman retired without catching one more pass from Brady. That’s when the Super Bowl LV MVP raised some eyebrows.

"We know Julian didn’t retire, let’s be honest. He’s just too scared to tell Bill (Belichick) he wants to come to Tampa," Brady said.

With Edelman on the video conference call, comedian Kevin Hart jokingly wondered how the Super Bowl LIII MVP was going to announce his comeback but didn’t get any substantial answers out of Edelman.

Brady and Edelman were teammates from 2009 to 2019 before Brady jetted off to Tampa. Edelman only played in six games in 2020 due to injuries.

Edelman announced his retirement on April 12.

"Nothing in my career has ever come easy, and no surprise this isn&apost going to be easy either," Edelman said. "I always said I&aposll go until the wheels come off, and they finally have fallen off. Due to an injury last year, I&aposll be making my official announcement of my retirement from football. This was a hard decision, but the right decision for me and my family. And I&aposm honored and so proud to be retiring a Patriot."

Will Super Bowl parties reverse coronavirus progress? Bay Area experts are worried

With the post-holiday surge in coronavirus cases diminishing and outdoor dining returning, health experts are asking sports &mdash and party &mdash fans to avoid holding or attending Super Bowl extravaganzas to avoid a postgame rise in cases.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs face off next Sunday in Super Bowl LV with a limited number of fans &mdash 22,000 &mdash allowed into Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay. Health officials nationwide are concerned about the people viewing the game away from the stadium &mdash at house parties, backyard barbecues and sports bars and restaurants.

Alameda County health officials issued a warning calling on football fans to hold the line and not gather with any more than three households and &ldquoto avoid Super Bowl parties and similar activities.&rdquo Any gatherings with other households should be socially distanced, out of doors and involve wearing masks.

&ldquoWe may be past the winter surge, but COVID-19 is still with us,&rdquo the Alameda County Health Services Agency said in a tweet.

Residents are reminded of the state prohibition on gatherings of more than three households and should avoid Super Bowl parties and similar activities.

We may be past the winter surge, but #COVID19 is still with us.

&mdash Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (@Dare2BWell) January 25, 2021

San Francisco&rsquos Department of Emergency Management said that although the 49ers didn&rsquot make the playoffs, "San Francisco still has a lot riding on the big game. COVID-19 remains widespread in our city and people must continue to take precautions. This means staying away from indoor gatherings, always wearing a mask and avoiding non-essential travel."

George Lemp, a retired University of California epidemiologist, echoed the warning for Super Bowl parties.

&ldquoIf you have people congregating indoors for a length of time and they&rsquore not wearing masks and they&rsquore mixing families, then there&rsquos always the potential for transmission,&rdquo he told The Chronicle. &ldquoThat&rsquos always a concern.&rdquo

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested fans hold virtual Super Bowl parties, festooning their homes in the colors and logos of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Kansas City Chiefs &mdash or both &mdash and preparing the traditional chicken wings, barbecue and that special dip. But instead of inviting over friends, the CDC advises sharing the recipes and setting up a text group or a video feed so you can cheer or curse your team together while safely staying with your own household.

If you must invite others over, the health experts advise, keep the group small, set up a projection TV, show the game on a big screen &mdash ideally outside &mdash and make sure people not from the same household are seated at least 6 feet away from each other.

In Los Angeles County, where the coronavirus continues to rage, health officials are taking a different approach. While they&rsquove allowed restaurants to reopen outdoor dining, with half of normal capacity, they&rsquore prohibiting television sets, partly in an attempt to keep sports fans from clustering close together, yelling and cheering and potentially spreading the virus.
