Admit it: You love a morsel of beauty. You know the excitement when you're making a purchase at Sephora and you get to pick your rewards freebie?

I'm the world's biggest fag hag. All my closest friends are gay guys. I love their vibe, their humor, and how much fun I have with them. But I'm starting to get worried that I've become too absorbed in their circle and am moving away from my own chances at a heterosexual relationship. Not only do I spend a lot of my social time in gay bars, I also get crushes on my gay friends (which they laugh off, mostly), and I've even taken to watching gay (male) porn, and find that I really like it. What's going on with me? Am I a gay man trapped inside a woman's body? Am I just avoiding my own relationship challenges? Or am I simply enjoying the openness and androgyny that SF affords me?
If you haven't heard, Ed Lee declared today Tony Bennett Day in SF. It's the 50th anniversary of Bennett's ode to our city, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." The SF Boys & Girls Choruses and the SF Symphony performed the signature song at the City Hall Rotunda, and you might've caught it broadcasting over loud speakers in Union Square and Hallidie Plaza. To get in the mood, we put together a smooth Tony Bennett playlist to celebrate this historic, gorgeous day. Enjoy!
