Your Friday lunch-break linkbait.

Elaborate Drag Funeral Today For Pioneering Activist Jose Sarria: This might be the funerial event of the season, and it's merited by Sarria's brilliant and brave activism. He'll be remembered fondly. [H/t: SFist

The Futile Exercise of Writing About Burning Man: Caleb Garling admirably engages an exercise in futility. [H/t: SFGate]

Tosca Cafe Bar Manager Isaac Shumway on Cocktails and Challenges: The anticipation builds as we approach Tosca 2.0. Sad to hear they'll be changing some drink recipes, but in Friedman we (mostly) trust. [H/t: Inside Scoop]
