Here’s a sight that epitomizes the San Francisco version of a Saturday night dinner party—dessert at my house last Saturday night.



It doesn’t get much better than five flavors of Bi-Rite Creamery ice cream, plus fresh berries. But let’s talk about those five flavors for a second: Coffee Toffee, Butter Pecan, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookies ’n’ Cream and Salted Caramel.

Cocktails with Robert Redford

Mark and Susie Buell hosted a cocktail party for Robert Redford following the SF premiere of his latest film, Lions for Lambs, in which he stars with Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise (the film opened at the newly renovated Sundance Cinemas Kabuki).
