Shop local at a San Francisco farmers’ market. Now there’s a Google map showcasing all the farmers’ markets, color-coded by the day of the week. Sure, you’ve been to the Saturday Ferry Plaza market. But did you know that the Sunday morning market at Fort Mason Center now hosts their market year-round?
But you deserve your first holiday treat… special pre-sale access to the John Waters Live Christmas Show. Why not a Chanukah or Kwanzaa show, you ask? My aren't you PC. Well, like Christmas, this event is for one night only.
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…
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. There are no rude bouncers or posted hours. Instead, there’s an ethos that if the door is open, walk on in. You’ll enjoy a serendipitous afternoon drinking beers and sharing laughs amongst friends.
Elizabeth Street Brewery, nested in a renovated storage room, is a “pub for the people, by the people.” Homebrewing since 2003, Richard’s dream is to open a full-scale family brewpub in Noe Valley. He is currently brewing out of the ultimate man cave…
“I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal.” -San Francisco, circa 2010
Not just a big deal, a great deal.
Although I've yet to see a Going Out of Business banner draped across the Golden Gate, some of our City's businesses are willing to discount their fare 50 – 90%. We're talking some reputable spots like Luna Park, Milvali salon, Kasa Indian taquería, Azalea boutique, Philz coffee and even the Go Car tour. 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.

They say you can't judge a book by its cover... but that was long before there was the magical Kindle 2 which absolutely requires a cover for safety and style.
The Kindle 2 might not have come into this world naked... but pretty darn close. Amazon's prepackaged cover would've been great for a hotel pad of paper and a pen. But job numero uno for a cover is safety. (safety never takes a holiday.) So for a $300+ device, I require a durable cover that will protect my Kindle if I accidentally gravity test it.
The Bobarra Thoreau cover has 4 elastic bands securely latching my Kindle into the cover. Thoreau once said that “books are the carriers of civilization.” But when civilization needs to carry their book, they don't want to be worried about dropping them. For someone who is always running around, I sincerely appreciate the safety of the Thoreau.
But I'm not one to compromise on style. I love the sleek brown leather with fastidious stitching around the edges... professional and cool—I've gotten a few inquiries about where I purchased this cover while riding the bus around town.
Overall, I am very happy with my Kindle 2 and love my Thoreau cover.
