Best Flowers: Sweet Nest Bouquet from Rose and Radish
If sorry seems to be the hardest word, let a Sweet Nest Bouquet from Rose and Radish—a delightful pairing of fresh flowers in a collectible Nymphenburg porcelain vessel —do the work for you. The Hayes Valley retail store recently closed its doors, but its art-driven perspective continues on its Web site, now featuring an online gift registry.
Best Dog Day
The city’s newest doggie day care is the eco-friendly High Tail Hotel, which uses plants, grass, natural light and an oxygen system to re-create the outdoors in its 5,000-square-foot indoor facility. Think of it as a biodome for man’s best friend, a romper room where they get to munch on tasty organic kibble. The best part? You’re not on cleanup duty.

If you're in the market for a studio in the Marina you're in luck, as we saw lots of viable apartments while finding this week's Craigslist deal. We chose this particular space, located on Chestnut about a block away from Fillmore, because it has been recently remodeled and features a more spacious common area than most of the other available places. We like that the kitchen is separate from the bedroom/living area and includes a little nook for a small dining table, so you don't have to eat a foot away from your bed. More snaps for all the storage space in the kitchen (love those white cabinets) and the included dishwasher and microwave.

Fog in the avenues and free music in the meadow? It’s now officially summer in San Francisco -- heralded last night as pashmina-wrapped guests arrived at the Stern Grove Festival Gala.
The free summer concerts at this magical musical spot are an EssEff summer tradition. And gala guests of all ages were a-twitter (the old-school version) over the featured performer at this elegant dinner-dance: beloved songbird Dionne Warwick.
