But skeptics as we are, we love to root for our home team. And the folks at The Perennial seem to have the stuff to pull it off.
We San Franciscans love...no, looove...our oysters. We like them with happy hour prices and drinks specials that are gentle on our wallets, but we're also willing to shell out for the really good stuff. Here are our favorite local places to throw back a dozen.
We are firm believers in the power of singing and dancing in the morning. Yeah, we're those people, which is why when we were invited to a morning cardio-dance class at the new Company in the Presidio, we jumped at the chance. Literally!
Spring is upon us, and that means the markets have gone green. Here's your monthly guide to shopping fresh produce at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
