One ritual we wouldn’t dream of passing up: Clocking time in front of the boob tube, satisfying our constant craving for the witty, counter-cultural sketch-comedy that is Portlandia. Our week just isn’t complete without some belly laughs courtesy of the now cult-followed duo of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. And being the mega-fans we are, we knew that Fred and Carrie had some serious love for S.F. (the two met some time ago at S.F. Sketchfest, according to Fred!). Well, pinch us, because we were lucky enough to gab with the dangerously funny team, who spilled the beans on their top Portlandia-approved San Francisco spots. Click through to see Fred and Carrie's five must-hit picks. And be ready to answer a resounding "Yes" when your most in-the-know friends invariably ask, "Did you read it?"
