The Buzz: Derby Gets Legs, Santa Robs A Bank, And The Storm Rolls On

Whew! It was a merry week in the Bay Area, and there were lots of things that happened that you might have missed while you were holiday prepping.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here are the week’s biggest stories, from a very bad Santa to a very good dog named Derby.

The FBI Has Concluded That North Korea Stuck Its Nose Where It Didn’t Belong

A Very Bad Santa Robbed A Bank During SantaCon, There Arose Such A Clatter

A man dressed in the traditional Kris Kringle garb this last Saturday during San Francisco’s SantaCon festivities quietly robbed a bank on Sutter Street.

The Storm Is Still Gnarly

She managed to get little Derby custom-designed 3D-printed legs, so now Derby can run and play just like the other dogs. CUE THE TEARS!

Sriracha Beer Is A Thing, We Have Feelings About It
