It took three years for Lauren Pieretti’s and Lori LaCoursiere’s relationship to develop after they met at The Café in the Castro District. But once Lori proposed on Baker Beach during a training run for a half marathon, the couple decided they couldn’t wait for the legalization of same-sex marriage to wed, so they staged a nautical-theme commitment ceremony at the Argonaut Hotel on November 5.
They met on the playground, reconnected via the Internet and tied the knot at the Argonaut Hotel.
When she was in the third grade, Alyson Yeck of Tracy used to dread walking by the seventh graders before school because Jeff Costa would harass her unmercifully. Finally, after she’d had enough, she told him off to the best of her 9-year-old ability.

Years passed, families moved, and the playground adversaries lost touch. Imagine the now adult Alyson’s surprise when Jeff messaged her via MySpace asking if she remembered him. Her answer: “Of course!”
If you've got a dog, you've probably been planning their Halloween (or should we say....Howl-o-ween?!) costume for months now.
