Make Food Not War

While on Lower Haight last night I stumbled upon a new restaurant called Baghdad Nights (682 Haight St., 415-861-6111) with elaborate, colorful signage and a flyer advertising belly dancing in the window. Turns out it’s a new (and as far as I can tell, SF’s only) Iraqi restaurant, staffed by Iraqi-Americans—each last one of them super-friendly and attentive.

Lawanna Cathleen Design and Baxter & Cook Art Advisors celebrated their grand opening with a Moulin Rouge-themed party at The San Francisco Design Center.

Good Moaning

I’ve been thinking a lot about noisy sex lately. Not because I can hear my neighbors having sex, but because the volume of noise during sex can send some friends, lovers and certainly neighbors over the edge. Then I read this Yahoo news story about the effects of grunting during exercise, and it got me even more curious about the correlation between noise and good sex.

The V Lady

It wasn’t until The Vagina Monologues that the word became popular in mainstream media. Sure, at first it was uncomfortable. Newspapers wouldn’t print ads for the show and the evening news talked about the “V monologues,” but not the vagina in its full glory.

Eventually, however, there was a turning point, and the word started rolling off tongues.

“Thank god for Eve Ensler (creator of The Vagina Monologues),” VL exclaimed.

Maybe you’ve seen the Vagina Lady at events around town, from Gay Pride to Bay to Breakers, though not at the Folsom Street Festival (way too many penises in play, I've surmised).

This Old Bag at the W Hotel

This Old Bag: The Power of the Purse, which was held at the W San Francisco, raised more than $135,000 for the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund. Sharon Stone’s donated Versace bag brought in the most money; it was auctioned off for a tidy sum of $8,000.
