I’m happy to report that a host of new restaurants are flipping their signs to open. Finally! They’re all a short walk from my home in the Mission, meaning I’ll get in the door soon to give you the full scoop.

Voted "Best Live Act" at this year's Brit Awards (the U.K.'s Grammys), alterna-rockers Muse were true to form, pulling out all the stops at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium last week.

Root Beer and Rings



Enough about Texas--it feels good to be back in the place I really love.

Now, perhaps my future as a drinks writer was predictable given my childhood love of root beer. I loved it so much as a 10-year-old that I was consistently able to taste the root beer blind at restaurants and accurately guess the producer--Fanta, A&W, Mug, whatever it may be. That deep love lives on, so it's hard to convey how pleasantly surprised I was to find homemade root beer at the Magnolia Brewery and Pub. Creamy and delicious, one of its best attributes is that it's not too sweet.
