Bush Street Becomes Obama Street

We're pretty sure this is illegal, but it's still awesome.  Check out the stickers placed over every Bush Street sign in the city.

Zuni Cafe Finally Solves Its Glass Problems

Just to let y’all know--In the last couple of months, Zuni Cafe finally solved its lifelong glass problems. Thanks to wine director Thierry Lovato and co-owner Gilbert Pilgram, those former clunky, thick-rimmed, poorly balanced café glasses that were Zuni’s one major blemish for years have now been replaced by elegant, thin-lipped, all purpose wine glasses. A minor change to many, perhaps, but it’s significant to me and makes me much happier to order finer wine there. Thanks, Zuni

Holiday Wrap


The alpha and the omega of the Swell set’s holiday hootenanny typically kicks-off in early December at the shindig hosted by dynamo Dede Wilsey and concludes with the birthday blowout of philanthropist-composer Gordon Getty.

Anything You Fancy at Eden & Eden

Usually sale items are relegated to some bins in the corner, filled with stuff that's more pitiable than pleasing. "A shirt with three buttons missing? Well, I guess it needs a home..." But not at Eden & Eden, where you can now find their entire selection of to-die-for home accessories (not to mention jewelry and clothes, but that's another blog) on sale for 25% off. It's called the "Anything You Fancy" Sale, and it's going on now through Saturday the 24th.

Wicked: Paintin' the Town Green

We're off to see the wizard...the wonderful wizard of Oz! In celebration of Broadway's smash hit, Wicked, coming to town next week, two of San Francisco's top-notch restaurants, Roots and Daffodil, housed at the city's greenest hotels (sense a recurring theme here?) are rolling out special menus just for the occasion (guys, take note: they're doing all the date planning for you!).

Up to 80% off at Design Public

One of the major downers to moving is getting rid of all the cool stuff you no longer have room for (ah, life-size David Lee Roth poster, I hardly knew ye). But when it's the offices of Design Public doing the moving, we all end up winners. The online store needs to clear some inventory before they ship out, which means sales at up to 80% for you. No Van Halen posters to be had, but there's plenty of good interior decor available, nonetheless. You can view all sale items in their Outlet section, and make sure to check back often as they'll be rotating stock every other day. Sale ends January 24th.

A John Guare Revival? You Shouldn't Have.

The problem with “zany” and “kooky” is that sometimes you get “Dr. Strangelove” and sometimes you get dumb-goofy and annoyingly silly. There are a few moments in ACT’s new revival of John Guare’s“Rich and Famous” that approach Peter Sellers-esque kookiness, wackiness in the best sense of the word. And then there’s the rest of the play.

Where to Party on Inauguration

At long last, the day we've all been waiting for—out with the old and in with the new. We're guessing every home, bar and office across the country will be tuned in to see Barack address the nation for the first time as President of the United States, but if you're looking to get out for this momentous occasion, here's where to party.
