Your Seven Favorite Charities: KEEN SF

A few weeks ago, we asked you to nominate your favorite local charities to give seven of them a chance to win $700 from us. We'll be profiling each on our website. Don't forget to pick your favorite to be featured in our February issue!

Executive Director Ayesha Williamson is the only staff member of KEEN SF, an organization that works to provide children with disabilities a free chance to forget their troubles and just have fun through exercise and play, while gaining increased socialization, peer to peer contact and encouragement from their one-on-one matched volunteer Coach. Read on to see how KEEN SF is making a difference in hundreds of kids' lives in our city.

Digging Up Treasures At Mid Century Mobler

One of the beauties of San Francisco is that you can dig up quality accoutrements in some pretty unexpected places--like a tiny garage in the Castro. We've recently become hip to Mid Century Mobler, a passionately-curated collection of gorgeous furniture hand picked by Julian and Gabe, two design-obsessed friends who work out of said Castro garage.

All-You-Can-Eat Curry & All-You-Can-Drink Wine For A Great Cause

I can think of few meals more perfect for foggy, peacoat weather than a steaming bowl of Indian curry with rice. Add a few glasses of wine to that and it's hard for me to remember what I'd been worrying about all day. Enter, today's 2nd Annual Curry Cook-Off at the Women's Building on 18th Street in the Mission, like a vision out of my dreams.

News from Apple Land: New Macbook Air Revealed

Apple devotees are probably all over this news already, but for the rest of you, the turtlenecked one unveiled a new MacBook Air today. It weighs a whopping 2 pounds, sports a super-sensitive glass trackpad and offers 11- and 13-inch screens with insane amounts of battery life (try around 7 hours).

Instead of CD or DVD drives, the Air comes with a USB drive containing the Mac OS X Snow Leopard operating system. So what will it be on your Christmas list? The new Macbook Air or the iPad?

Hey, Giants fans: Through October 31st, the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA has a $9 adoption special on all Giants-colored (that's orange and black!) kitties.
