Fabulous old stuff benefits youth at the 27th San Francisco Fall Antiques Show
It was, indeed, a return to the classics at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion last week for the Patrons' Preview Party of the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show benefitting Enterprise for High School Students (EHSS).
Soft lighting and well-appointed booths awaited well-heeled patrons who crammed the joint in order to get first-dibs on great stuff.
Heck, even the Ladies' loo was tricked out this year with plush carpet and bookcases stacked with show catalogs.
Women tend to explore relationship scenarios - sometimes ad nauseum. I get comfort from studies that show women are biologically wired for such conversations, but sometimes I wonder: is this all for naught?
To wit: This was emailed to me recently. While it's a joke and is good for a laugh, is it also true?
My take: Sounds good. Now, if they can only develop lower calorie brew that doesn't taste like Lite beer.
1. Apple of our eye
If you haven’t made your way over to Cavallo Point cooking school (and the wonderful on-premise restaurant, Murray Circle) yet, here’s your chance: This Friday, precede your night of tricking with a treat from the kitchen—caramel apples! Heirloom apples will be dunked in homemade caramel for a gooey holiday treat. The free event begins at 3:30 p.m. and continues until 5 p.m.; afterwards, you can take your kids to the fancy Marin neighborhoods for their annual candy run.
Ozomatli, the nine person funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop/Spanish/English band from Los Angeles is headed north to play Slow Food Rocks this Saturday. Get excited to kick off the shoes and enjoy a wild performance on Fort Mason's Great Meadow - cause we’ll say one thing, this band makes you want to dance. We caught Ozomatli’s Raúl “El Bully” Pacheco on his cell, windows down, cruising in his freshly-purchased 1968 Mercedes Sedan up 101. Here’s what he had to say about Slow Food, SF burritos and his band’s dedication to social issues:
But first, in case you’re wondering:
O•zo•mat•li (n.) classical Nahuatl origin. Aztec word for monkey, god of dance and music
With the holidays just around the corner—and seemingly endless shopping to do and parties to attend—I’ve been on the look out for a reliable neighborhood spa where I can get groomed in a hurry, without sacrificing quality and without breaking the bank.
San Francisco hits a nostalgic chord for the New Pornographers. The Mission’s Aquarius Records was all about promoting the band in their fledgling days, which led to some of their first sold-out shows at the Great American Music Hall and the Warfield. Now they’re returning to the city where they really took off to play Slow Food Rocks, the music festival component of Slow Food Nation.
