Naked Pillow Fights?

Oprah mentioned Forbes.com’s report that “San Francisco is the number one place in which to be single.” I talked about it in my "Singles Beget Singles" blog entry.

But now many locals are up in arms.

It appears that San Franciscans are super comfy in their “this is the worst town to date in” skin. Feel free to complain. I never judge. But if you’re in the mood to stop talking about your so-called dry spell and jumpstart your sex life, read on.

To meet women:
Try an Appel & Frank trunk show. Where else can you find 700 women in orgasmic shopping bliss?

Happenings Round Town

Talk, Eat, Listen


Michael Pollan is all smiles and ready for his big dinner at Fort Mason.

I’d make a horrible revolutionary. I don’t have the myopic focus of an Alice Waters or the drive of a Michael Pollan. Last night, I set down the latest Gourmet magazine, which focuses on the “farm-to-fork” movement, with a sigh. Instead of being moved, as I was a few years back, I felt tired. Even worse, I felt compelled to do something bad—like eat a pineapple.
