EppsNet Restaurant Reviews: Don Pisto’s

Our son and his girlfriend took us to a Mexican restaurant in North Beach for Sunday brunch.

Maybe because I ordered it at the bar and it was poured right in front of me, but there was mucho tequila in the margarita. I don’t always drink margaritas, but when I do, I often order a second one. That option was not even on the table on this occasion. Rating: Read more →

I’m now being informed that the Bevatron was in fact a particle accelerator put into operation in 1954 and used in the work of multiple Nobel Prize-winning physicists. Read more →
