Earlier this week, I had what was most likely the most San Francisco day of my life.

There was pour-over small-batch coffee. A visit to a tech unicorn headquarters. Some tone-deaf obliviousness. A food truck that only serves bacon-related items, and a speeding Uber car. In related news, AirBNB has a new app and marketing campaign coming!

That’s all in this episode along with Munchery’s new membership program (and Postmates’ too), and a tearful farewell to that crazy talented Internet hater, Prince. Sigh.
