Where to Cash in on Soft-Shell Crab Season

It's Soft Shell Crab Season: Get Them While You Can

Despite what year-round "spider" crab sushi rolls might tell you, soft shell crabs are a highly seasonal item, available in very limited quantity, especially on the West Coast. Supplies of these freshly molted crabs, a product of Chesapeake Bay shellfish, are usually exhausted by July, so order them up anywhere you see them. We recommend you take this list of Bay Area restaurants serving soft shells, and squeeze in as many dishes as humanely possible in the next few weeks.

Look of the Week: Kitchen Cute

Whether you're an aspiring chef or a hip housewife, one thing's for sure -- cooking is sexy. Add to the appeal with a comfy-chic kitchen ensemble.

This look is casual enough for everyday cooking, and classy enough to greet any surprise guests (with that homemade tart you just happen to have in the oven).   

Look of the Week: Workout NightLife + SF Marathon

Head out to the Academy of Sciences tonight for the sporty themed, Workout NightLife -- a special event in preparation of the annual San Francisco Marathon.

At NightLife, enjoy a performance by CHEER SF, a "quirky workout attire" costume contest (Add a tutu and some sparkles from your Burning Man bin for this bit!), partake in a yoga session with Lululemon, and zumba your way through tunes by DJ Kap10. Then, indulge in some guilt-free carbo-loading before the SF Marathon this Sunday.
