This Saturday, six Bay Area athletes will attempt something that many (most?) people would consider totally insane: swimming from the Farallon Islands to the Golden Gate Bridge – a 30 mile distance through frigid, great white shark infested waters (fun fact: this region of the California coast is called the “Red Triangle” on account of its famed inhabitants. You know, because red is the color of blood.) They would be the first relay team ever to accomplish the feat.
Things are looking rosé at Piccino
A Sunday afternoon rosé tasting ought to appeal to a San Franciscan, if only as a reminder of what season we are, in fact, in (answer: summer). And if grenache, syrah, mourvèdre, cinsault, pinot noir, and cabernet franc mean anything to you, then we’re guessing the charms of this tasting extend well beyond that happy reminder. Head over to Piccino Café in Dogpatch this Sunday from noon until 5:00 p.m. for pink wine, accompanied by thin crust pizzas, salads and a few special dishes.
