Follow your gut, and who knows where you’ll end up. If you’re anything like Kirk Lombard, your happy place might be between the tides in an underwater raw bar of sorts—host to bounties of moon snails, mussels, monkeyface eels, and horse neck, jackknife, and piddock clams, all ripe for the plucking.
That bitter taste left in the mouths of Bay Area folk will forever be accompanied by an image of an irate, hatless Jim Harbaugh pleading at an official for a holding call.

It's been a banner year for San Francisco sports. With the Giants winning their second World Series in three years and the 49ers going for their 6th Super Bowl title, it's easy to forget about the Golden State Warriors.

This is the one point in the year when San Francisco is finally warmer than the surrounding ‘burbs, so we suggest you head on over here and soak up the sun in these sure-to-be-sunshiny spots (the rule of thumb is pick a south-facing locale):
This month, the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition are teaming up for two special “Bike to the Theater” nights.
