High School Sex

Have you had those experiences—in your adulthood—when you’ve felt like you were having high school sex all over again?

Guy gropes breasts for two minutes, sticks his hand down pants for three-and-a-half, and next thing you know, you’re doing it (clothes on floor, panties at your ankles, etc.)

Seems we all get stuck in these sex ruts—like we studied what to do with the breasts, penis, vagina and mouth, and we stopped learning and adding to our repertoire after we graduated from sex ed.

Drinking Class

For Christmas last year, I got Wine for Dummies, but I’ve yet to crack that sucker open. Now, I’m more inspired to dust it off as last week I attended two classes—Wine Tasting Deconstructed, beginner and intermediate—both offered through the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant.

Brooklyn-based MP3 blog darlings Clap Your Hands Say Yeah charmed audience members with tracks from their latest album Some Loud Thunder at the Independent on Tuesday, September 25. Singer/songwriter Elvis Perkins (son of actor Anthony Perkins, known best for his role in Hitchcock's classic horror flick Psycho) opened the bill.

Happenings Round Town

SF Performances Gala

SF Performances' 28th season gala, "La Dolce Vita," successfully raised more than $100,000 for its education and outreach programs. Soprano Heidi Grant Murphy along with composer/pianist Jake Heggie and Quartetto Gelato performed at the event, which was held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.


As we close in on the end of the week, I’ve found a new way to waste time. You can thank me later. A friend just sent me a link to, a website that features nothing but pictures of refrigerators from around the world and their contents. You could submit a photo of your own fridge; there’s even a spot to leave a brief manifesto on the contents. I only wish the people submitting images were a bit better at IDing their items—the American fridges are easy, of course (though I must admit I had forgotten about the existence of Juicy Juice), but I’m stumped when it comes to the fridges of Sweden, Kenya, Amsterdam. What are all those mysterious condiments?

The Most Smashing Pumpkin-Infused Meal of My Life

Half Moon Bay has long been one of my preferred towns for a day or a weekend getaway. However, I always avoided this coastal town around Halloween because of the event that has helped put it on the map, The Annual Pumpkin Festival.  This year I took the plunge and embraced this pumpkin-loving fest full on, and I am so glad I did.
