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.
This week, take a look back at some local gazettes that have come and gone.
PaperCity San Francisco (2002 - 2006)
If something fabulous and cool was going down around town, you would have surely seen it in PaperCity, a Texas-based fashion and lifestyle magazine, perhaps best known for its party coverage, that published out of Grant Avenue offices until 2006 when it shuttered both its San Francisco and Atlanta editions. You can still catch the mag in Houston and Dallas.
