As a magazine editor, I always feel the pressure to be ahead of the curve. But sometimes, I’m about three years too late, as is the case with the Ghetto Gourmet. Attending one of their dinners has been on my to-do list forever, but I just got around to it last Saturday night. I just wish I’d done it sooner (like maybe before Time magazine covered it).

Fashion Show and <i>Zodiac</i>

So I'm really looking forward to the IMG fashion show with Naomi Campbell on March 15 at Fort Mason. For the record, I have no idea what the hell "IMG" stands for, but more details can be found at fashionweeklive.com. Boom selecta!

And since I have nothing more interesting to say on the subject, I'm gonna let my main man, Ned Clarke, who you may remember from "Storytime with Ned" on the recently defunct "Hooman Show," take over and tell a good story about the time he tried to sneak into a fashion show at Fort Mason a couple years ago:

McGuire 7x7 Roundtable: 1st Round


The real estate market is confusing. With its ups and downs not just in the Bay Area but also nationally, it’s hard to make sense out of it all. In an effort to parse down the dizzying amount of information, McGuire presents Top Producers’ Roundtable, a quarterly perspective on what’s happening in the San Francisco real estate market from some of the most successful agents in the city. Top Producers Roundtable will appear in the March, May, July and October issues of 7x7. This quarter, the team compares national and local real estate trends, the value of San Francisco real estate while offering reasons why now’s a good time to buy.

Special Blend



Cameron Hughes is not your ordinary winemaker. He doesn’t drive a tractor, lovingly prune his vines, and soulfully dip into his barrels. Rather, he sits behind a cluttered desk on his phone lines or his email or both searching for great wine that hasn’t been bottled.
