1. Hecho in San Francisco at the Ferry Building: If you're looking to do it up in style this Cinco de Mayo, look no further than Saturday's CUESA and La Cocina fundraiser at the Ferry Building. The $55 ticket includes access to an outdoor party area with seasonal meat and veggie tacos from Tacolicious, bites from 12 of the city's best Mexican restaurants and vendors (including Nopalito, Alicia's Tamales Los Mayas, La Torta Gorda, and Chaac Mool), artisan jello shots from Sweets Collection, tequila cocktails made with Don Julio, Cuervo Tradicional, and Mi Casa, and plenty of cold Corona. It's enough to give new meaning to the word fiesta.
Surfers, rolling hills dotted with vineyards, adobe buildings, and oil rigs in the distance off the coastline; these are some of the things that may come to mind when you think of Santa Barbara County. But what about windmills, pastries as big as your head, stagecoaches, and Native American caves?

Blog posts come and go quickly, which is one of the joys but also one of the frustrations of the trade.
Over time, you can publish thousands of posts that are several hundred words long each, which will quickly add up to millions of words.

My boyfriend's favorite position is reverse cowgirl. Let me tell you something: Reverse cowgirl is not a woman-friendly position. It's boring, the angle is bad, and even when I touch myself, it's so upright and awkward that I don't get off. I know you're going to tell me to get off first in some other position--which I can and do--but nevertheless, my BF's adherence to always ending in reverse cowgirl and is starting to get on my nerves. I think he likes my ass better than he likes me, or any other part of me. (I do have a great ass, but my face and boobs aren't at all bad either.) Help before my resentment grows any further.
Two active local Northern Californians wed with an intimate but fun ceremony in Mill Valley. Even with a midday rain storm, their bright celebration continued with smiles and laughter.
