Tales from the Playboy Mansion

First, let’s get a few things out of the way: No, I didn’t swim in the grotto, and yes, I’ll bring you next time. For sure.

I’d been to the mansion once before, but this time it was work: I was asked to do a show and arrived with my crew in tow.

Boulette's Feast

Boulettes’ salmon carpaccio with salt-cured capers.

I know our Eat + Drink editor, Sara Deseran, has written about Boulettes Larder in the Ferry Building, as have others. But since it’s not exactly a restaurant—more a combination of extremely high-end gourmet shop, takeout counter and, in the evening, private dining room—I for one didn’t know what to make of it until a few nights ago, when I attended a wine-pairing dinner hosted by Blackbird Vineyards. (See Jordan Mackay’s blog for more on Blackbird’s wines.)

Rucci Opens at Sorokko

Fashion designer Ralph Rucci kicked off his art show last week at the Sorokko Gallery. Rucci, the first American in 50 years to be invited to show his line with the Paris Haute Couture collections in 2001, has recently focused his efforts on his art, including fabric and sewing techniques in a number of his works.

Greetings blog peepers,

I am devoting this electronic missive to the one topic that has flooded my mind, excited my bones, warmed my heart and made me feel like a teenager all over again this week: the reformation of my favorite band, The Police.

Yes British rock trio The Police; Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland performed together this week for the first time in more than 20 years in Vancouver, Canada. And might I add, to much fanfare and critical praise. 

Beloved SF Restaurant Gears Up For Facelift

It’s a rare occasion that we have the early scoop on something happening in the city (either we’re hopelessly unpopular or we can chalk it up to the monthly vs. weekly thing), but today I have news—real, new news to share.
