SF dance-rock buzz band Scissors for Lefty played to a packed house at Popscene on May 30. Brakes, hailing from Brighton, England opened the show.


Salad Days

After my debaucherous dessert week, I resolved to end my sugar bender and turn over a new leaf (so to speak). That’s right, I went from chocolate cakes and fruit crisps to capreses and cobbs sans bacon. Well, not exactly that saintly, but I have been making an effort to get back to my healthy eating in honor of swimsuit season (everywhere in the northern hemisphere but here).

East of Eden

Now is the time of year when we East Coast expats begin to get homesick. Back in New England and the Tri-State Area, the evenings are balmy, the halter tops are emerging from storage and businesses are closing early on Fridays so everyone can get a head start for “the Shore”—where the water is warm enough to swim. Here, the fog is rolling in and we’re breaking out the fleece.

San Franciscans Go Wild

Well, at least they shed some layers  (emotionally and physically) for a party at the Playboy Mansion a couple of weeks ago.

As promised, here's the video I mentioned in my first blog post:

Some snippets of conversations with sexy San Franciscans—except for the interviews with "Cousin Stevie" and the American Idol dude—the rest of these folks are your neighbors.
