Not everyone's image of San Francisco living, but this condo is only a block from the Embarcadero, Pier 30 and the planned America's Cup Village, the ballpark, and South Beach Park.
The Basics: A 2-bed, 2-bath, 2-parking space condominium on the top floor of 200 Brannan Street in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood, asking $1.199M, on the market almost two months, and just went "pending" a few days ago. Monthly HOA dues are $650.00.
To celebrate the last month of Summer 2011, 7x7 and SVEDKA are teaming up to honor the city's bartenders and their skills of invention with an epic mixology competition!

Last weekend I went to a party with some friends, and the next day my boyfriend asked how it was. I hadn't mentioned the party to him, but it turns out he read it in my calendar! He told me that he knew my password and had been reading my email for months. I was floored and pissed. He said it was no big deal, that he was just seeing if I was being straight with him. He also said he didn’t have any secrets and offered to let me read his email anytime I wanted. I'm seriously thinking of ending the relationship over this but am not sure if I'm overreacting. Is this common?
