What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working

Your Tuesday afternoon lunch break link bait. 

SF to Explore Central SoMa Eco-District: Described as an "interwoven and closed-loop system for waste, water, urban food production, and energy." Cool. [H/t: Curbed SF]

Mid-Market Shooting Injures One: Yikes. [H/t: SFist]

Interview with AIDS Doc Director David Weissman: "I made this movie for the Castro Theater. The whole building, the neighborhood—it’s all haunted by the ghosts of the epidemic. And it’s also a place of celebration and connectedness and community spirit." [H/t: Castro Biscuit]

Don't Call Them Techies: Suggested alternative from the techies: "makers." Sure thing, Mr. Galt, we'll get right on it. [H/t: SFGate

Five Festive Holiday Cocktails around Union Square: Here's our secret recipe for our favorite festive cocktail: Maker's Mark and Pine-Sol. [H/t: 7x7]

BART Union to Sue: At least a lawsuit isn't a strike. Oh wait, they might go on strike too? Ugh. Pass us another Maker's and Pine-Sol. [H/t: SFGate]
