When I was assigned to interview noted hitter Hunter Pence, in person for an entire day, I was thrown off guard. First, I like the guy. A lot. And second, unlike so many a glorified chef or socialite, he's an actual celebrity in San Francisco—not only famous, he's a hero. I had my fears.
It's full-tilt indie this week, folks.
One of just three official Japantowns in the U.S., San Francisco's Japantown is a cultural hub brimming with original restaurants, quirky shops, and unique community. Here's where to hang when you're in the 'hood.
There’s a full cast of characters in Botticelli to Braque: Masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland—everyone from a Tahitian temptress painted by Paul Gauguin, to a rowdy Dutchman by Frans Hals. But as you’d expect in a show from Edinburgh, there are also plenty of portraits of Scots, including a few with interesting backstories.

If spending the night in a haunted house is your idea of a good time, well then we lead different lives.

Spencer's my name, cuddling's my game! My main motto in life? Having a good time. As my last humans dumped me for their new baby --I know, right? --I am a newly single canine, trying to find a place to call home. Shall we get into my stats? Here we go: I'm a Lab/Retriever mix, big sports guy, and I'm 9 years old...hey, like they say, 9 is the new 3. I can beat those little whippersnapper pups on the court anyday. I'm a champion ball chaser and Frisbee catcher extraordinaire! Overall, I'm quite the companion, entertainer, and all-around awesome pooch. Check me out here and let's meet for coffee, err, dog biscuits.
Remember back in early March when John Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse of "Full House," was spotted hanging around the old Tanner residence on Broderick Street? Turns out, the visit may in fact have been R&D: Stamos broke the news on Jimmy Kimmel last night that "Fuller House" is headed to Netflix in 2016.
