Free Sailboat Day
Take advantage of the San Francisco Bay’s unique beauty near the Berkeley Marina this Saturday. Cal Sailing Club, a non-profit organization run by volunteers, is hosting its Free Sailboat Day where participants enjoy a free introductory sail ride.
Let your freak flag fly: It’s the return of the Space Lady! Her Elbo Room performance is a ways off (March 14), but this past week I was listening to KUSF-in-Exile (technically getting renamed San Francisco Community Radio) when I discovered the weirdest, but most lovely sounding cover of Steppenwolf’s ‘Born to be Wild’.
In this week's bevy of restaurant news we have the closing of a 50-year-old institution in outer Mission, the relocation of popular spot Lolo in the Mission, an update on two new bars opening this spring, and an update on the Sons & Daughters spinoff arriving soon in North Beach.
Do the shuffle: Management and chef changes in Marin translate into new experiences for customers. Sometimes that means what’s old is new, as well as the chance for one noted chef to return and cook in his hometown. The views are good in Novato at Hilltop 1892, which has been a hot spot since way back when.
