Our trusty vet Dr. Jeannine Berger is taking a little breather to enjoy the warm weekend ahead, so our usual "Ask A Vet" column has gone fishing.
Before she comes back with her endless nuggets of wisdom next week, we want you to send us your pet questions! Whether it's about needing to get your kitty cat to stop scratching up all your furniture, or you're unsure about where to take your pet in a medical emergency, she's here to deliver the answers.
So add them in the comments below and we'll get her on the case!
While I have a plethora of information to share about parking, I find myself moved to write about the recent decision of the SF District Attorney to file felony vehicular manslaughter charges against Chris Bucchere, the bicyclist whose crashing into a 71- year old man led to that man’s death.
Pair sexy comedy queen Aisha Tyler with pop culture guru Chuck Klosterman in a booze distillery, and you get something like a modern-day literary salon of sorts. Class up your Friday night at this benefit for ScholarMatch—the Dave Eggers organization that connects Bay Area students with donors to make higher education a reality. Appropriately named Bourbon & Banter, you'll be privy to a live taping of Tyler's hit podcast, "Girl on Guy," accompanied by off-the-cuff commentary by Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs author Chuck Klosterman. Oh, and did we mention the plentifully flowing St. George Spirits cocktails?

Since opening the first Gimme Shoes in 1984, co-owners Jared Warwick and Leigh Stackpole have and continue to feed the constant cravings of San Francisco's shoe obsessed (and they've converted a few along the way, too). We're certainly believers. Gimme is, without fail, well stocked with everything from intellectual British to funky-forward Euro footwear. Here are our seven summer favorites, for the boys.
When it came time for Jeni, who works at Pandora, and Mark, who's in a band called the Hustler Van Band, to decide on a wedding location, they opted for San Francisco's oldest historic night club venue that fit their eclectic taste and love for music: The Great American Music Hall.
As glorious as San Francisco and the Bay Area are, some weekends just call for a getaway. Maybe it’s one, or five, too many foggy mornings or you just need a change of scenery for a couple days. Whatever the case, one of the best things about SF is that it makes getting to other part of America, and the world, accessible. Here are three weekend jaunts that are a short hop from SFO.
Love Pride? There's still a chance for you to attend one of the swankiest events all month–PG&E's glitzy fifth annual Pride Party at the gorgeous Bently Reserve. Benefitting the Victory Institute, the evening will be hosted by Mark Rhoades, and comedienne Loni Love and Heather McDonald (from the hit show Chelsea Lately) will liven up the scene with their whipsmart performances.
