An Ode to San Francisco's Old School Diners

We here in San Francisco love our gourmet provisions, but from time to time we need a break for good old comfort food—and the diner never disappoints. With nostalgic charm, coffee that flows like wine, and single breakfast portions that could feed a small army, we'd like to take a moment to salute our favorites.

A Modern Guide to Sacramento

Toward the end of “California Love,” Dr. Dre asks the question we're all thinking: “Sacramento, where you at?” As of late, the inland town is on our radar for hip new shops, bars, and restaurants that fill the historic buildings of tree-lined Midtown.

New Amy Winehouse Exhibit Reveals What the Tabloids Never Did

Behind every diva is a family. Even such a diva as Amy Winehouse who, sadly, is often remembered mostly for the flash and scandal of her final days. “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait,” which opened at San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum on July 23 and was created in collaboration with her brother, Alex Winehouse, and the Winehouse family, shines an all new light on the musician and her work, focusing on her young life and the family’s history. This may come as no surprise, but San Franciscans will also find plenty of common ground: Amy Winehouse was a lot like us.

Treasure Island Is the New Alcatraz Thanks to $50M Public Art Project

Treasure Island is home to a pretty good monthly flea market and a great annual music festival. But aside from that, there's not much reason to visit beyond the standard trans-bridge drive-by. But now, the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) hopes to change that with a massive transformation expected to entice locals and tourists alike.

A SF Film Editor Brings 1970s Surf Culture to Life in "The Lost & Found Collection"

For three years, between 2007 and 2010, San Francisco film editor Doug Walker travelled back and forth between the North Shore of Hawaii and his Bay Area home toting his video camera along with 30,000 old film slides and negatives containing images of surfers that had been snapped for Surfing magazine by notable photographers back in the 1970s. He had bought the magazine’s lost archive for just $800 at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, and an idea struck: He would set out to find the subjects in the pictures and the lensmen who had captured them. With this, The Lost & Found Collection came to be.
