Despite the worst snowpack in decades, Tahoe resorts are still offering plenty of open trails and man-made fluff for beginners to practice and perfect their turns (or snowplows) and, even better, to do so at ridiculously reduced rates.
Every city has those magical blocks that, by chance, happen to house awesome store after awesome store. In San Francisco, there are plenty of these little gems. Lately, our favorite has been Valencia Street between 19th and 20th Streets.
I recently noticed on Facebook that my ex-husband has removed pictures he previously posted of the two of us and un-tagged himself from photos posted by others where I’m also in the shot. It’s certainly his right to do this, but emotionally it struck me as something out of 1984’s Ministry of Truth, where records of an inconvenient past were stuffed down a memory hole and a new narrative created to replace it. Why do people feel the need to erase a past they were once so proud of? BTW, We were together for 14 years, had an amicable divorce and are still friendly.
“Second Thursday” doesn’t seem to roll off the art world tongue quite like last week’s kickoff, but that does not make the upcoming fleet of SF gallery openings any less exciting. From Lucy Pullen’s vibrant perceptual playground, to the poignantly off humor of Carol Selter’s “Animal Stories,” to Katherine Westerhout’s photographic uncovering of once grand, now disused American architectural space, another weekend of exhibitions brims with character, philosophy and spunk. Here are the six to see.

Ursula & Greg's wedding was at the hotel Solage in Calistoga. They had to make some last minute changes due to rain but managed to move everything under the awning and the ceremony went off without a hitch. The groomsmen had fun touring around on the hotel's cruiser bikes and the bride and groom had their own special bike decorated for an exit.
Weekends are for amateurs. Weeknights are for pros. That's why each week Stuart Schuffman (aka Broke-Ass Stuart) will be exploring a different San Francisco bar, giving you the lowdown on how and where to do your weeknight right.

A margarita, a Manhattan. Most of you could go home right now and mix one of these classics. But the drinks at Maven—a new restaurant in the Lower Haight that ambitiously tackles food and cocktail pairings—are not of the make-at-home variety. Bartender Kate Bolton mixes, emulsifies, and reduces her libations with the care of a pastry chef and the showmanship of a magician.
