Tim Lincecum, along with fifteen other professional athletes across the country, are giving back to their local communities as part of the popchips Game Changers program. The all-star pitcher (and snacker) is asking fans, “How can I give back to our community?” Fans have the chance to submit local charities and causes for Tim to support.Whether he chooses to visit a local hospital, volunteer at a local school, or help out at a regional animal shelter, Tim will select one community organization and popchips will host an exclusive event for Tim and the charity where he will “chip in” for a day.
On April 26, the venerable jewelers—whose San Francisco location was their first domestic store outside New York—rolled out the pink carpet at 350 Post. St. to celebrate a milestone anniversary.
Tiffany and Co. also used the occasion to launch their new 1837 collection in rosy Rubedo metal. Bay Area guests ranged from San Francisco through Silicon Valley, with all in attendance lifting rose champagne toasts to the sleek, chic collection, and to the legendary purveyors of sparkly sophistication.

If it were any less spectacular than Jeffers' interiors (many have been featured in the pages of California Home+Design) or not as innovative as Alabaster, the late, great Hayes Valley store that Purdy managed, then their fans would be let down. But if you make your way to this about-to-ignite design hotspot at 1035 Post St. when it opens Tuesday, you will leave inspired. The store is fresh, surprising and insanely creative.
Welcome to Ticket Tuesdays, a new weekly chance for you to score entry to some of the hottest shows in the Bay Area.
They can shake it, they can stir it, but for one of Michael Mina’s newest cocktails all the bartender has to do is crack it. (And no, it doesn’t involve an egg, but it is egg shaped.)
Bar Director Carlo Splendorini, in thinking of new ways to present classic cocktails, is looking to modernist culinary techniques. His Aviation, which involves water balloons and liquid nitrogen may or may not have been inspired by a similar drink crafted by the Aviary team in Chicago, but thankfully, he has found an alternative to using a syringe. Because really, drinking cocktails should never, ever, at any stage, involve the use of a syringe. Ever.
