Sugar Rush

We’ve been closing our August Eat + Drink issue and needless to say I’ve been just a little busy. So for today, here’s some candy for the eyes from The Candy Store, which opened rather recently in Russian Hill. You’ll just have to go and find your own inner child.

2009 Hot 20 under 40

What's "hot"? A pitcher with a killer arm, tech wizards bringing Wi-Fi to the world or a gender-bending performance artist?  One thing's for sure: Everyone below is under 40 and has a sense of self that belies their years. We're just lucky enough to benefit from it.

 


Katie Brown, Top-Ranked Climber

Amanda Adams, Archaeologist and Founder of Loki

Anastasia Griffith, Actress in NBC'S 'Trauma'

Hot 20 2009: Zoë Keating, Avant-Cellist

Photography by Anön.

It may come as a surprise that classically trained cellist Zoë Keating has 1,029,679 (and counting) subscribers on Twitter and is listed among the top 120 suggested Twitterers to follow—right up there with Martha Stewart, 50 Cent and Britney Spears. With a genre-bending sound she creates by playing a French cello that’s layered and looped using a foot-pedal-controlled MacBook, it’s no wonder this former software engineer turned one-woman orchestra attracts a diverse audience as intrigued by the arts as they are by technology.

Who’s Having Sex in SF?

Are you having sex in San Francisco? Tell me about it.

It’s well documented (at least on my show) that your single brothers and sisters in New York, Los Angeles and every other major American city (where lots of single people abound) think that THEY live in the worst dating town ever.

But casual sex, my friends, is definitely on the rise.

To clarify: casual sex, hooking up, etc., refers to “sexual activity outside the context of a romantic relationship, consisting of a range of informal sexual encounters.” This according to Wikipedia’s explanation.
