    While many restaurants keep shifting into a more-casual vibe (to wit: less tablecloths, more communal tables), it’s nice to see that some fine-dining displays of bravado and flair remain. One timeless example? The tableside cart. Here are seven places that offer great tableside shows of service, a reminder that a skilled server with some culinary tricks up their jacketed sleeve never goes out of style... or fails to entertain.(One quick note: we really looove a good cheese cart, like what you’ll experience at Acquerello, Quince, and Gary Danko, but we wanted to focus on more unique…

According to police "the victim who was nearly hit tapped the suspect's hood with his hands and told him to calm down."

Under gray skies where a steady drizzle mixed with clouds of orange, black and white confetti, players waved, snapped photos and mugged for the roaring crowds from the top of double-decker buses, a change from the classic convertibles and cable cars on wheels that had transported them along their now-familiar parade route in 2012 and 2010.

    After the Royals came into town and took the first game at AT&T Park Friday night for their second straight win, games 4 and 5 became the real momentum changers of the series so far.Through the first three innings of Game 4, it looked like KC was gonna run away with this game and take a 3-1 series lead, but the Giants showed why they've won 2 tittles the last 4 seasons and came up with an impressive comeback to not only win the game, but completely blow KC out of the water, 11-4. I think that was the big turn of the series, or at least I'm hoping it was. Had the Royals held on to win that…

While the Royals have gone undefeated to this point in October, the Giants have lost just two, and both teams have plenty of momentum heading into Tuesday night's game one.There's been so much breakdown of this series over the last few days, and I'm sure we've heard just about every body's opinion at this point, so I'm just gonna keep it short and simple. Each team will send their ace to the mound in game one, with Madison Bumgarner…

They're the top team in the NL Wild Card race and moved to within a game of the NL West-leading Dodgers with Friday night's victory. With a soft schedule and an improving squad, they look primed for a strong finish. Last post, we talked about the steadiness of the offense, and how they've really done a complete 180 since the emergence of Joe Panik in that two hole and Andrew Susac as Posey's backup.

"I'm going to go where my heart tells me," Sandoval said Friday after the Giants celebrated their third World Series title in five seasons with a confetti-showered parade through downtown San Francisco.

    More than a few Game 7s have lacked the tension, distinction and splendor that legendary penultimate games provided. And then the Giants and Royals struck a mighty blow for Game 7s Wednesday night, reclaiming for the final scheduled game a sense of supremacy.

    Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants, winners of the 2014 World Series! This is the eighth win overall and their third win on consecutive even-numbered years (2010, 2012 & 2014). On the flip side, until 2010 they hadn’t won since 1954 when they were the New York Giants — that’s a 56-year drought! They did get to the ball in 1962 (lost to the Yankees) and 1989 (swept by their neighbors, the Athletics) and 2002 (lost to the Angels). Given them credit for taking the 1962 and 2002 Series to seven games. I’ll be honest. I was a lot more thrilled last year when the…

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers pitcher Dan Haren on Thursday exercised his $10 million player option for next season. The right-hander was 13-11 with a 4.02 ERA in his first season with the Dodgers. Last month, Haren activated the option guaranteeing the big payday by going seven innings in a loss to the San Francisco Giants, who won the World Series. “I’ve pitched good enough to deserve that,” he said at the time. “It’s a ton of money.” At that point in September, he wasn’t sure whether he would return next year. Last week, the 34-year-old pitcher…

    (The Sports Xchange) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed his third straight day of practice with a back injury on Friday and could be a game-time decision. Coach Jason Garrett said Romo will need to move around better before Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals in order to be able to play. The Cowboys have a short walkthrough Saturday. Romo has been receiving treatment on his back all week but has not done any football activities. Brandon Weeden would start at quarterback if Romo can't go, with undrafted free agent Dustin Vaughan as the backup. ...

''Hopefully, you are becoming more resilient and a little bit tougher both mentally and physically.'' In a span of five days, the Saints have dramatically turned around a season that appeared to be running off of the rails after a fourth-quarter collapse in Detroit on Oct. 19. Last Sunday night, the Saints routed a Green Bay squad that arrived in New Orleans on a four-game winning streak. New Orleans then hit the road - where it had been 0-4…

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:40 am
    —On Tuesday, Judge Christopher Brasher of the Fulton County Superior Court denied a petition from civil rights advocates to force Georgia’s Secretary of State to process an estimated 40,000 voter registrations that have gone missing from the public database. Though early voting is well underway in the state, Judge Brasher called the lawsuit “premature,” and […]

    This totally never happens except when it does. After another apparent accidental shooting, Houston police are investigating. This time, the culprit is a 3-month-old baby. You see, the baby had access to his binkie, a blankie and of course, a gun. 20-year-old Patrick Sanders was shot on Saturday after a gun fell out of his […]

  • Here’s Why “Evil Republican Billionaire” Sean Parker is Four Times LESS Evil Than What the SFMTA Crowd is Saying

    sfcitizen
    31 Oct 2014 | 9:07 am
    TweetWell, here’s the latest from the I HEART THE SFMTA NO MATTER HOW TERRIBLE IT MIGHT BE crowd. The thing is, poor, sensitive* Sean Parker actually is the number one booster of Prop A, the billion dollar general obligation bond what the I HEART THE SFMTA NO MATTER HOW TERRIBLE IT MIGHT BE crowd really really wants passed. Check it – he’s listed number one owing to his $200,000 donation: Prop A is real life – it will take tens of millions of property tax dollars and, through “pass-throughs,” it just might raise your rent to the tune of thousands and…
  • Our Inefficient, Wasteful San Francisco Film Commission is Desperately Trying to Justify Itself – Potential Marketing Efforts

    sfcitizen
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:51 am
    TweetThese aren’t real ads, not yet. But they show you how the SFFC is thinking: (BTW, what the SFFC calls a “job” is what I’d call a gig, some of which are offered at less than minimum wage, just like the America’s Cup) All film commissions are bad. How is the SFFC better than any of the rest? How is the SFFC better than SF’s recent hosting of the disastrous America’s Cup? BTW, NBC’s Trauma medical drama was a big piece of shit, you know, frankly. Now people might say that I shouldn’t say that, but I don’t think they’d…
  • Bay Area Bike Share: Just Two Stars on Yelp? – How Much Do Tourists Pay for Their Leisurely Trips Out to Ocean Beach?

    sfcitizen
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    TweetThe thing about Bay Area Bike Share is that the bikes aren’t good and they cost a lot of money to rent. This is by design. (Part of it has to do with the govmint not wanting to get static from all those companies what rent normal bikes to tourists.) Now, are there any BABS stations anywhere near the west si-iiiide of town? No, not even close. So these people, who made it all the way Way Out West, to the farthest reaches of SF County, what are they thinking? Are they thinking, “Hey, we’re paying $28 an hour for our bikes – let’s hang out and have a…

Everybody wants some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi, but nobody wants to admit they want some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi...] I don’t really “get” this one, I don’t understand what’s going on here.

She’s sympathetic to San Francisco landlords. And before being drowned out by a chorus of boos and hisses…” THIS MIGHT COME AS A SURPRISE TO THE NEVIUS, BUT THIS “OUTLOOK” IS NOT “INCREDIBLY UNPOPULAR.” HOW ABOUT SOMEWHAT UNPOPULAR, YOU KNOW, INSTEAD?  STRIKE ONE “They inherited a…. It’s her sole source of income.” SO NEVIUS, YOU COULDN’T FIND ANY RICH SAN…

  • San Jose Stage: Watch Picasso paint

    Monica Turner
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Herbert Siguenza as the legendary Pablo Picasso. Actor/writer Herbert Siguenza of the powerful and politically renown theatrical troupe Culture Clash created the original play A Weekend with Pablo Picasso at San Diego Repertory (in 2011) and stars as Pablo Picasso, the most influential artist in modern history. In the 1957 artist’s studio in southern France, the artist paints and speaks and directly to the audience. From Clinton Stark’s review of Picasso: The show’s premise is positively brilliant: we’re a (somewhat unwelcome) guest staying in Picasso’s home and studio in…
  • ‘Party People’ a revolution for the stage

    Clinton Stark
    27 Oct 2014 | 12:01 pm
    Steven Sapp (Omar, right) leads an ensemble cast in UNIVERSES’ Party People, a high-wattage fusion of story and song that unlocks the legacy of the Black Panthers and Young Lords at Berkeley Rep. Necessary. Going into opening night of Party People at Berkeley Rep this past weekend I thought I knew what was to come. We’d get an essentially rote, but entertaining look at the Black Panthers, Young Lords, and their struggle to achieve equality for blacks, latinos, and other minorities who were continually repressed by society, and especially government. No doubt the show, I suspected,…
  • Marsh Magic: ‘Memphis on My Mind’

    27 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    Rebecca Fisher stars in ‘Memphis On My Mind’, an evening of theatre, barbeque, and blues, at The Marsh Berkeley, October 24 through November 23. If Manhattan is Woody Allen’s love letter to New York City, then Rebecca Fisher’s new work is her love letter to Memphis. If Fisher’s name sounds familiar, it might be because she was just at the Marsh directing Mark Kenward’s Nantucket Nantucket is as full of the New England shore as it is the growing tragedy that drives the story forward. If Kenward’s story is carried on mists over the New England coast, Fisher’s…
  • City Lights Theater Company calls a ‘Truce’

    Monica Turner
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:59 pm
    A hundred years ago on the battlefields of France, World War I soldiers on both sides of the lines set down their weapons in an impromptu Christmas ceasefire. They shared handshakes, cigarettes, rations, and soccer games. They sang carols together. Now a World Premiere play by two local playwrights celebrates this historic—and heartbreakingly brief—episode of peace, while offering the age-old holiday wish of peace on Earth. Truce: A Christmas Wish from the Great War, written by Kit Wilder & Jeffrey Bracco and directed by Wilder, runs later next month at City Lights Theater COmpany in…
