Juice of half a lime

Orange flower water
Add the first six ingredients to a shaker. Shake well. Add ice. Shake again. Strain into a chilled collins glass. Top with a splash of soda and orange flower water.
At NightLife, enjoy a performance by CHEER SF, a "quirky workout attire" costume contest (Add a tutu and some sparkles from your Burning Man bin for this bit!), partake in a yoga session with Lululemon, and zumba your way through tunes by DJ Kap10. Then, indulge in some guilt-free carbo-loading before the SF Marathon this Sunday.
Conjure up memories of lonely Alice finding her way through an unfamiliar magical world in Alice in Wonderland, or relive James Henry Trotter's surreal, peachy adventure with strange insects in Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Now, hold tightly onto that vision, and take a gander at the images here by LA-based artistic duo Jeff Charbonneau and Eliza French. The similarities are striking, so much so that Photograph magazine referred to their work as "Fellini's take on Lewis Carroll."
This is our weekly guest-blog post from the moms behind Red Tricycle, a site that focuses on the "lighter side" of parenting. Every week, they'll be bringing us their picks of stuff to do around the Bay Area with kids.
One of the largest urban parks in the country is right here in the Bay Area, and there’s lots to do in its 1,000-plus acres. It’s impossible to see everything that Golden Gate Park has to offer in one day, with the Koret Children’s Playground, California Academy of Sciences, Japanese Tea Garden, and Stow Lake among the attractions pulling the family in different directions. With some planning, you and the kids can hit up your favorite spots without a hitch and maybe even discover something new.
Greg Dunmore has been sourcing ingredients from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market since his days as chef at Ame. At his recently opened restaurant, Nojo, in Hayes Valley, the menu is a playful interpretation of traditional Japanese food that showcases the seasonal produce from Greg’s favorite farms.
To say that critics made Kevin Smith’s career might seem to ascribe too much significance to the whims of a vocal but oft-ignored minority. But to hear Smith tell it, it was New York Times writers Janet Maslin and Dave Kehr whose unreserved praise of his modestly budgeted Clerks (1994) helped put the former convenience-store cashier on Hollywood’s map.
Ultra polarizing rap group Das Racist exploded onto the country's collective radar with their pseudo-philosphical riff "Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell", confounding listeners and lighting critics' loins on fire. Their two 2010 mixtapes Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man were heavy on the downloads and solidified the band's unanimously-decided new title as a band to keep your eyeballs on.
Last fall, we published the 10 Best Lunches Under $10 in Union Square. It was so popular, we decided to do it with every neighborhood. Rather than attack this subject as outsiders, we're approaching "hyperlocal" dwellers from each 'hood to give us their picks — in this case the editors of The Tender, who call the Tenderloin and the Tendernob their stomping grounds. They tackle both neighborhoods in this cheap eats list.
Check out 10 Under $10s from other SF neighborhoods here.
Tenderloin (Mason-Geary-Polk-Golden Gate)
