Before this column takes a break for a few weeks, we bring you a quick peek at ten of the big movies around the Bay this holiday season and share an inkling of who you might want to bring along (if you really, really have to). See you in the New Year!
Welcome to our weekly 'Ask a Vet from the SF SPCA' feature on 7x7.com. Dr. Jeannine Berger, DVM, DACVB is a board certified veterinary behaviorist who counsels guardians whose pets’ issues are beyond the scope of training. Think of her as a pet shrink…at your service. Ask your own questions in the comments!
There's no time like the holidays to really go the extra mile. Sure, the gift is important, but the card is where you can really get sentimental (or just be an endearing smart-ass). Top off each of your well-wrapped gifts with a lovely little note from Hello! Lucky.
The local team of artisan letterpressers really know how to kick up the kitsch when it comes to Christmas cards. Take a peek at our favorites and stop by their SoMa digs (977 Howard at 6th) or a local retailer to pick some up.
By now, the holidays are in full swing and Christmas is right around the corner. Our stress levels start to rise as we race against the clock to finish everything from last minute holiday shopping to last minute sprucing and prepping for grand holiday dinners (and for most of us, it’s way more than just ‘sprucing’).
Throw in trying to make New Years plans and all of the sudden, it doesn’t seem like the most wonderful time of the year anymore. That’s why we are suggesting a holiday detox plan.
We’re in the final holiday crush. Sure, it’s important to get that shopping done, but a little rest and relaxation can make finding the perfect gift oh so much easier. If you need a break from the holiday hustle and bustle, a nice warm soak in Sonoma maybe all you need to make the season a little more soothing.
Whether you love or hate the new law, paying 10-cents for a shopping bag is now part of life in San Francisco.
The smart solution? Invest in a few awesome reusable bags that work for your lifestyle. From sturdy wool & recycled sailcloth carryalls (#3) to insulated, lightweight and packable grocery totes (#1), here are a few of our favorites.
When only the paramount present will do.
For many people, this time of year is for spending time with family, opening presents, and eating more sugar cookies then your stomach can hold. However, for others, it's a time to escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays to take a vacation. For those looking for the best of both worlds, we've put together this round-up of area hotels that are mixing the holidays with vacation.
7x7 asks Bay Area chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.
Handcrafted cocktails make any occasion festive, but during the holidays when Napa chef Cindy Pawlcyn entertains, she mixes them up by the pitcher so she has more time to enjoy her friends.
