John Waters has spent a lifetime mesmerizing audiences as a film-maker (Pink Flamingoes, Hairspray), artist, author (Role Models), and even as a first-grade teacher. Now, he brings his vaudeville act to San Francisco…

Secret Nanobreweries

Still searching for that quaint, neighborhood pub “where everybody knows your name?”

Say “Cheers” at a couple clandestine spots in the City: the Elizabeth Street Brewery and Clara Street Brewery. Limited to under 200 gallons of craft beer each year, these underground speakeasies are a celebration of homebrewing… the adventure of concocting both traditional and exotic brews.

Who hasn't kissed the ring of Groupon, the godfather of the Entertainment Book version 2.0? But now it's time to appreciate and expose the other sites featuring a daily deal. After all, it wouldn't be San Francisco if we only patronized the $1.2 billion dollar front-runner.
