No one loves a magazine or a newspaper more than we do; and being a bustling, creative metropolis, the Bay Area has its share of top-notch periodicals.
But as everyone knows, publishing is tough and favorite rags come and go, whether due to lack of funding, changing readership, the advent of digital or, you know, writers quitting their pen gigs to instead go mine for gold.

Daily Candy San Francisco (2000 - 2014)
Daily Candy was our stylish, in-the-know girlfriend who was always eager to fill us in on the next big thing, beautifying our inbox with cute illustrations and sassy lingo. Founded by Dany Levy, the New York–based newsletter-turned-full-on-media-brand grew quickly to include several cities across the U.S. and London before being sold to Comcast in 2008. What happened thereafter is tragic; parent company NBC Universal pulled the plug in 2014.
