Litquake, SF’s annual celebration of the literary arts, opens its 15th year with a traditional quinceañera. The weeklong festivities (October 10-18)—which include a reading by Paolo Giordano, author of the award-winning novel, The Solitude of Prime Numbers—conclude with the famous Lit Crawl, in which 100 Mission District bars, galleries, coffeehouses, and shops will host readings from more than 850 participating writers.
Take something of San Francisco’s old-world elegance, sprinkle in a few local celebrities (you choose: an actor, a speaker of the House, a Fortune 500 CEO), add a quiet suburban hush, and you get Pacific Heights in all its grandeur.
This contemporary three-story penthouse (yes, three!) is the cherry on top of the historic Mint Collection’s Sliver Building. Plus, it's just a stone’s throw away from Blue Bottle Cafe and The Cavalier—ahhh, the good life.
