The New Secret Weapon for SF Foodies


San Francisco is the city of instant gratification. With the push of a button, you can hail a cab, send a bouquet of flowers, or even do your grocery shopping. But to eat at the city’s best restaurants (our activity of choice) you still need to hunt for a table 30 to 60 days in advance—until now.

Vote for San Francisco's Favorite Charity: Top 7 Finalists!

It's the most wonderful time of the year—time to select San Francisco's favorite charity, as part of our annual contest. We asked readers to vote for their most beloved nonprofits, and this year's numbers were record breaking. But seven charities rose to the top.

Lions and Tigers and Bears at the SF SPCA's Halloween Bash

The eve before Halloween, Bay Area animal lovers and their furry friends gathered at the San Francisco SPCA’s Mission Campus for “There’s No Place Like Home,” a costume party for two-legged and four-legged (and even some three-legged) guests. Many families coordinated costumes with their pets (a la Princess Leia and Chewbacca), while others let their pet bask alone in the fancy-dress limelight.

The Provoke Era: War and the Art of Photography

Shomei Tomatsu

"Grainy, blurry, and out-of-focus" photography (also called "are, bure, boke") doesn't immediately conjure up images of fine work. But, a new exhibition at the Crocker Art Museum explores the intentionally gritty style of photography that originated in post-WWII Japan, upon dramatic social and political changes due to the American Occupation, modernization, and rapid economic development.
