The Wine Country Fights Breast Cancer

October is official Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), which is an annual health campaign to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research, prevention, and hopefully one day find a cure. Over the years, Napa Valley wineries and businesses have given a great deal to support the fight against breast cancer and we’d like to honor a few that maintained this tradition in 2011.

Ask the Parking Guru: Car Was Towed While on Vacation, Can I Contest?

Dear Parking Guru,

I came back from vacation yesterday and found that my car was stolen.  I made a report and soon thereafter I found that it wasn't stolen, but was towed by the SFMTA, impounded, and had racked up charges in excess of $1700 while I was away.  I was parked in my residential neighborhood, with a valid residential sticker prominently displayed on my bumper.  The people at AutoReturn would not listen and told me to contest the ticket, but said that I better hurry because in two weeks, it will be auctioned off.  I refuse to pay this fine, but am racking up $60 each day that it is impounded. Help!

San Francisco Gets a Professional Hockey Team! Sort of...

I’ve always wondered why San Francisco doesn’t have an NHL team. Being a former ice hockey player myself, ahem, I’ve never found the time nor desire to trek to San Jose for a hockey game (or, for anything for that matter except, well, sun…and golf…ok, never mind).

Not-So-Innocent Comic Amy Schumer Kills at Punchline

It’s been a surreal two weeks for Amy Schumer, the cunning girl-next-door comic who will, for the foreseeable future, be known as the standup who told Steve-O she would have preferred he die, rather than fellow Jackass star Ryan Dunn, at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. Her infamous joke has caught the attention of both angry Jackass fans and also the national media, and now the 30-year-old New Yorker is riding the crest of a wave of notoriety. It’s a double-edged sword, of course: she’s now selling out shows, but she also reported to be on the receiving end of death threats from the unamused.

A Wedding That Started in a Church and Ended Under a Disco Ball

After John W. Stewart and Ramon Torres finished decorating their Christmas tree in 2009, Ramon left the room. John called after him: “There’s one more decoration I want us to put on together.” When Ramon returned, John got down on one knee, handed him a Cartier ring box and said: “Will you marry me?”
