Remembering Our Film Writer Rossiter Drake

We are sad and disheartened to learn that one of our long-time writers, Rossiter Drake, died over the weekend. 

Seven Questions for Starfucker

Catchy, upbeat, danceable, addictive - Portland-based electro-pop group Starfucker (or STRFKR to some) is on the up-and-up. They took a minute to chat with us before swinging through the Bay Area later this week. 

Welcome back to San Francisco! What’s been happening with you guys since the last time you were here? 

Pacifica’s Sharp Park Golf Course Faces Possible Closure

One of the many beautiful things about living in the Bay Area is the possibility of playing a pleasant 18 holes of golf a stone’s throw away from the Pacific Ocean (in the middle of December no less). However, one of the most scenic and affordable places to do so, Sharp Park in Pacifica, is facing a pending closure.

DJ Duo Digitalism Plays Mezzanine Wednesday Night

With awkward office holiday parties in full swing and another week with the relatives looming, you just might need a little therapeutic escape to the dance floor. No need to wait for the weekend, the perfect reprieve occurs this Wednesday night at Mezzanine.

Support Local Business at This Week's Evening Art Walks

Night is falling quickly these days, and the chilly early eves are perfect for a mosey at this week’s back to back art walks in two of the city’s most happening ‘hoods.

A Few Things To Do With Your Out of Town Guests

The question always looms when visitors come to town – what are we all going to do? It should be an easy answer considering there are eight million things to do (and more) in San Francisco. Here are a few ideas to get you started...

Grab an almond croissant and a big bowl of coffee at La Boulange. Quiche, open-faced sandwiches, and lots of other decadent treats beckon from behind the glass.

If your visitors insist on seeing Fisherman’s Wharf, stop at the Musee Mechanique. It’s quirky, fun for kids (and adults), and free. Bring quarters to play the dozens of turn-of-the-century carnival games. A sourdough bread soup bowl is just outside the doors.

Direct Flight: New Orleans

From the confines of our bubble, it’s easy to forget there’s a big, wide world out there. All it takes is one weekend, one step onto a plane at SFO, and one step off into a completely different land. Need inspiration? We present to you – Direct Flight.

Destination: New Orleans

Time In-Flight: 3.5 hours

Ticket Cost (round-trip): $450+

When to Go: Notorious events like Mardi Gras or Jazz Festival; VooDoo Music Festival/Halloween; any time, though summer can be overbearingly hot and humid.

Major in Cheese at The Cheese School

Cheesemongers are great at their job if they successfully convey what the original purveyor would want us to know. The Cheese School thrives with these erudite cheese connoisseurs who teach a rotation of classes to the not nearly as cheese-educated among us. If you’re interested in expanding your knowledge of cheese, seeking a unique date idea, or crave an atypical night out with friends, The Cheese School a delightful (and delicious) didactic destination makes.

Local Chefs Take the Stage on Studio Gourmet

Born and bred Bay Area boy Brad Lev knows how to dig deep into the psyche of celebrated San Francisco chefs. He does just that as host of Studio Gourmet, a monthly food talk show involving three ingredients – a live cooking demo, an intimate Q&A, and a tasting.
