It's that time of year again—the flowers are blooming, the weather is getting warmer, and art students across the city are showing off their best work. Check out this year's batch of up-and-coming artists and designers at this series of shows put on by the San Francisco Art Institute, California College of the Arts, and Academy of Art University. Gallerists and museum curators will no doubt be out scouting this talent, so now's your chance to say you saw them here first.
The best chefs in San Francisco are getting together for dinner, and you’re invited. SF Chefs, in partnership with 7x7, Campari, and KCBS, has created The Dinner Party Project — a dinner series showcasing the longtime friendships between some the city’s best chefs. Chef friends will collaborate to create once-in-a-lifetime meals, sharing with diners a unique glimpse into their friendships, cooking styles and culinary visions. Each dinner will begin with a handcrafted Campari aperitif. The series will benefit the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture.
For the drink recommendations in this week’s Picks & Drinks, I paid a visit to the lovely Harmony Fraga and her ‘Executive Assistant’ slash Party Motivator Michael Lopez at their slick Fillmore lounge The Social Study. Situated as it is, the Social Study was in a prime position for many early morning coffee runs during the two weeks of the SF International Film Fest, and I was excited to hear how their nighttime menu of unique beer- and wine-based cocktails would stack up to this week’s best indie offerings.
It's that time of year again: Late Spring in San Francisco. The parrots are flocking, the smell of flower blossoms fill the air, sun dresses have returned from their winter hibernation, and Friday sick days are on the rise. I'll leave these fun and romantic springtime topics to be written about by the horticulturalists and poets, while I'll tackle the post-winter topic that nobody else wants to explore. Potholes.

I pay my rent on time every month. I pay my bills. I have a steady job. I have no kids, no pets, no strings attached, and no nicotine addiction. I’m old enough to throw a civilized adult gathering (read: party) and wise enough not to destroy my apartment in the process (most of the time). As my colleague put it, I’m a landlord’s wet dream.
But, in San Francisco at the moment, none of that matters.
