I don’t remember much of what happened at Bay to Breakers 2010, but judging from these photos I had a blast. Whoever is in charge of inventing holidays should seriously consider making the day after Bay to Breakers one.

Last Friday April 2nd was the Lower Haight Art Walk, a semi-regular event that showcases local artwork, shopping deals, good food, and lots of booze for the walking public. Just don’t get caught outside with it! For a city that loves to drink so much, we should really just adopt an open bottle policy. Some […]


When I first heard that Iron Chef Bobby Flay was doing a burrito throwdown on his Food Network show “Throwdown with Bobby Flay,” I immediately felt bad for whoever he was going up against. His Southwest style of cooking is heavily influenced by Mexican and Latin American cuisine, so I expected him to be comfortable […]


2010 Update: This year’s Great San Francisco Pillow Fight is on Sunday, February 14th at precisely 6pm in front of the Ferry Building at Justin Herman Plaza on Market and Embarcadero. See you there! The article below is reposted from February 2009. -Gene Valentine’s Day is usually meant to be spent with your honey booboocakes doing […]


I make no secret of my disdain for cupcakes. They are the most overrated thing since, well, take your pick – the Lakers (self-explanatory), Apple (doesn’t make you cool), fixed gear bikes (there are hills in San Francisco), Entourage (you’re not Ari Gold), and froyo (it’s fucking froyo). However, that doesn’t mean cupcakes aren’t good. […]


Last night, about 1,200 partiers gathered on the Metreon’s fourth-floor City View terrace to sample food and drink from several San Francisco restaurants and local wineries. The second annual charity event, Dish, was presented by SF Weekly and Park Merced. Partial proceeds benefitted One World Children’s Fund, which supports community-based organizations around the world serving […]


Every year, San Francisco plays host to the German tradition that is Oktoberfest. It’s a sixteen day festival held in Munich, Germany, that brings millions of people together to celebrate the history and tradition of Bavarian culture. In San Francisco, it is another reason to get thousands of people together to drink their brains out […]


Local booze lifestyle magazineDrink Me is celebrating the launch of its fourth issue tonight at Coda Jazz Supper Club in the Mission. The magazine covers the art and culture of drink and drinking — tonight’s launch celebrates whatDrink Me calls its MacGyver issue. Tonight’s party features $4 specialty cocktails and $3 beers and wine from drink […]


After a year of remodeling and renovations following a 2008 fire, Limón (524 Valencia at 16th St.) is finally set to open tonight. Last night’s party for industry and media showed off the new space: a bar and open kitchen with a raw seafood bar, and an upstairs loft with another small bar and space […]


It’s no secret that San Franciscans love their city. This was more than evident when I arrived at Bloodhound, which feels like a cross between a hunting lodge and chic lounge, for a viewing party for famed author & traveler Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations in San Francisco. In countless bars around the country you’ll find […]


To kick off this year’s first annual San Francisco Street Food Festival, they are hosting a fun scavenger hunt that begins on August 1st and culminates at the festival on August 22nd. The festival is a collaborative effort between La Cocina, street food vendors, and restaurants. They are closing down the street and hosting a […]


If you have nothing better to do on a Tuesday night, Pacific Standard Time at 330 Ritch is the place to be. I’ll be there tonight ringing in my birthday, so come on by for some good music by San Francisco’s very own DJ Sake One, who will be presenting a special tribute to George […]


To celebrate the coming of the famous Pride Festival this weekend on June 27-28, WhatImSeeing.com, one of the best San Francisco photography blogs out there, captured this beautiful image.

San Francisco is full of museums that run the gamut from ancient art to modern cartooning. Seeing all these museums can be quite a dauting task, and not to mention super expensive! If exploring art and science for free sounds like your kind of thing, then I present to you The Official Hoodscope List of […]


6:00am – The alarm goes off. I crawl out of bed, slip on my hot pants (what?)  and head straight to the kitchen, passing by friends that are still sound asleep as they dream their silly dreams.  6:30am – Slaving over a hot stove, I begin cooking pancakes to keep our tummies full and happy […]
