Five Chances to Soak Up SF's Arts Scene

Let's get right into it.

Turn Your Blog into a Book Using Hyperink

E-Book Publisher Hyperink Introduces “Blog Books”

Blog posts come and go quickly, which is one of the joys but also one of the frustrations of the trade.

Over time, you can publish thousands of posts that are several hundred words long each, which will quickly add up to millions of words.

The problem for most bloggers is how to better preserve and monetize all of this work?

Well, San Francisco-based ebook publisher Hyperink has come up with an option. This week, it is introducing a concept it calls “blog books,” which are short (10-12,000 word) compilations of a blogger’s best, say, 25 posts on a topic.

Two Sense: Why Does My Boyfriend Insist on My Least Favorite Sexual Position?

Two Sense: Why Does My Boyfriend Insist on My Least Favorite Sexual Position?

My boyfriend's favorite position is reverse cowgirl. Let me tell you something: Reverse cowgirl is not a woman-friendly position. It's boring, the angle is bad, and even when I touch myself, it's so upright and awkward that I don't get off. I know you're going to tell me to get off first in some other position--which I can and do--but nevertheless, my BF's adherence to always ending in reverse cowgirl and is starting to get on my nerves. I think he likes my ass better than he likes me, or any other part of me. (I do have a great ass, but my face and boobs aren't at all bad either.) Help before my resentment grows any further.

Photos: Tiffany & Co. Celebrates 175 Years

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.

A Sugared-Up Tour of Paris with Pastry Chef Yigit Pura

If you’ve never witnessed a man make love to a tart of the pastry variety, then you have never met Yigit Pura or seen the ecstatic flutter of his chestnut eyelashes and the pursing of his full Turkish lips as he takes a deep bite from a Chantilly-filled St. Honoré cake to the sidelong glance of a scandalized Frenchwoman down the row on the Paris metro.

Five Things to Love about SF's New Cavalier

 Five Things to Love about SF's New Cavalier

It would be easy to be disappointed in Cavalier, the new store from interior design star Jay Jeffers and retail guru Michael Purdy. 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.
