Rock the Vote: SF vs NYC

The war is on. Last week, Lonely Planet fueled the fire with a little friendly competition between SF and NYC. The two cities have always had a friendly rivalry, but this time you get to be the judge. So stop whatever it is you're doing—that report can wait a few minutes—and cast your votes ASAP.

Right now, it's neck and neck, and I have to admit, that as a former New Yorker, I had to choose the Big Apple on some of these (there is just something about The Strand that Green Apple can't match). But come on people—we can't let Central Park beat out the Golden Gate Bridge!

Scenes of the City: SF Gets Fit

For our second installment of "Scenes from the City," we documented the citywide New Year's fitness resolution craze.  Check out SF shaping up after the holidays, shedding those pounds and enjoying the outdoors. Here are photos from some of the city's favorite workout spots: Crissy Field, Golden Gate Park, Bad Joe's Body Shop, Planet Granite, and fit Bernal fit.

Enjoy.

Stephen Elliott on Why Two Roommates and $25K at Age 38 Equals a Lucky Man

I don’t go to a job like most people, and I don’t stay home with the children. I don’t have children. As I’m writing this, I see a very pregnant woman step out of a Mini Cooper and into a cafe. I don’t have a car. I had one 10 years ago, but it died.

Photos: Spinsters of San Francisco: Fleet of Flight!

On October 8, 2010, the Spinsters of San Francisco kicked off their 81st year with the much anticipated Fleet or Flight party at the internationally-acclaimed supperclub (657 Harrison Street, San Francisco).  More than 300 tickets were sold to benefit the non-profit City of Dreams.

All the Single Ladies: Alert! Successful, Fit, Commitment-Oriented Bachelor

I'm a successful, moderately good-looking guy, in great shape, good personality (or so I'm told), single and alone in this city. I am in my early 40s but look 10 years younger and every one of my friends gives me the "how are you still single?" routine. I'm somewhat new to the city, and I think I'm in the wrong venues: Bars/nightclubs just aren't doing it. I don't want a one-night stand, temporary fix, or "hipster life." I want substance, support, conversation, debate, challenges and an honest-to-god connection. If you know the secret spots in the city where I should be going, or things I should be doing, please give me a heads up? I'm trying my best to make the so-called "horrible dating scene" in SF better, but I'm just not having any luck. —SF Bachelor
