Our city is chock-full of interesting people and wild personalities. Overwhelmed by the coolness? Every week we'll pick one standout local we'd love to be friends with to answer seven essential questions about their life in San Francisco.
When I was 26 (like, this past year), I was eating popcorn for lunch and working for this website. When Chip Conley was 26, he was on a mission to "create joy" and started what is now the second largest boutique hotel company in America, Joie de Vivre.
One thing that was important to Jon Bonné, the long-time wine editor for The San Francisco Chronicle, in writing his recently released book The New California Wine (Ten Speed Press) was that it not necessarily be “new.”
Christmas is in a week (ahh!), and with many folks running around to finish their shopping, wrap gifts, attend holiday parties, and get their work done so they can catch planes or hit the road, free time is in very short supply.
Each year, San Francisco’s chicest hotels compete for most yuletide cheer.
As the weather’s been indicating for weeks now: winter has come. There’s no denying it. Christmas trees attach precariously on car rooftops, red and green lights dot apartment buildings, and eggnog is making its way onto menus around the Bay.
For these wintry nights, nothing will warm you up faster than the perfect combination of whiskey and apple cider.
Do your taste buds a favor and stop by these enticing events this week.
