    This is Dave Chappelle on a night that was not last night, because I followed the rules and did not take photos. The first time I saw Dave Chappelle perform live was 10 years and three months ago, in a large, echo-y gymnasium at UC San Diego. It was my 20th birthday and I was so excited.  This was June of 2004, and the comedian was at the absolute peak of his Chappelle's Show fame, which meant he suddenly found himself performing for sports arenas full of college kids who had neither the patience nor the decorum (nor the sobriety) to actually sit and listen to a standup comic performing…

    I have very little experience with marijuana — mostly because I’m from a small, East Coast town where such a substance is referred to as “the Devil’s lettuce.”  So when Mathew Gerson, founder and inventor of the THC lube, Foria, offered me the opportunity to test out his new product, I was intrigued.  Foria is supposed to enhance female sexual pleasure. I’ve personally never had issues with orgasms (I can hump a chair and come), but I was interested to see how some oil could make them feel even better. So I decided to try it.Read more »

    Federally indicted Chinatown gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow has sued San Francisco and its mayor, demanding records that he says will implicate Ed Lee in the same bribery scandal that entrapped Senator Leland Yee. Chow claims that Lee took $20,000 from Michael Anthony King, who the lawsuit claims is actually UCE 4773 in the criminal indictment against Senator Yee — the guy who posed as a Georgia businessman and offered Yee's henchman Keith Jackson $20,000 to alleviate debts from Yee's unsuccessful 2011 mayoral campaign.

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. Each rookie's success has given Bochy freedom with the lineup and in…
  • Giants getting boost from youngsters

    30 Aug 2014 | 10:36 pm
    A little over a month ago, the Giants were in desperate search for a halfway decent second basemen as they seemingly failed with every guy they trotted out there in Marco Scutaro's absence. Then all the sudden they found themselves in the need of a catcher after concussion issues with multiple players opened a major void behind the plate and Buster Posey.Enter Joe Panik and Andrew Susac. The Giants top pick from the 2011 draft, Panik had a quiet start to his professional career before a solid season in AA Richmond last year and a torrid start at AAA Fresno this season. He's really been the…
  • Giants must take advantage of schedule

    13 Aug 2014 | 7:33 pm
    With the way things are going, it's hard to imagine the Giants aren't more than five back in the West and still right near the top of the NL Wild Card race. Nevertheless, after they've failed to turnaround a miserable end to the first half, they're still very much alive in the playoff race and have plenty of baseball left.First of all, if they're going to get things back on track, they have to start taking advantage of the soft schedule they have coming up. They wound up splitting the mini two-game set with Chicago, but now is the chance to really get going. Their next 6 games are against the…
  • Giants banking on Pagan, Belt

    1 Aug 2014 | 11:14 pm
    The Major League Baseball trade deadline came and passed Thursday afternoon, and although there were a flurry of moves in what was one of the busiest deadline day's in recent years, the Giants were one of the clubs that stayed quiet.They did make the deal to bring in Jake Peavy just 5 days prior, so the sense of urgency to get something done wasn't there and apparently Brian Sabean didn't like any offers that were out there as he scoured for second basemen and outfield help. The Rays did end up dealing David Price, but there was no deal for Ben Zobrist, who was probably the most intriguing…
  • Giants add Peavy, may not be done

    27 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    With under a week to go until the non-waiver trade deadline, the Giants urgent needs have become apparent. On Saturday, they made a move to attempt to tackle one need, but they shouldn't be done quite yet.With Matt Cain's uncertain health status and off year to this point, another veteran starter that can be used in the rotation while Cain is on the mend was something Brian Sabean felt was a necessity. The one guy that was linked to them early and made some sense was Boston's Jake Peavy and on Saturday evening, the Giants went out and obtained him from the Red Sox for two of their more…

But three games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers with 13 to play, the Giants will have to pull off another surprising run to win the NL West this season. Clayton Kershaw outpitched Yusmeiro Petit for his major league-leading 19th win, and the Dodgers extended their lead in the division with a 4-2 victory over the Giants on Sunday. “You can’t look ahead and say you have to do this…

    More defiant than contrite, Roger Goodell announced no sweeping changes in his first public statements in more than a week of turmoil surrounding the NFL's handling of players accused of crimes. The commissioner was definitive about one thing: He has not considered resigning. Goodell was short on specifics Friday as he discussed how he would address the rash of domestic violence incidents in the league. He said the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.

    San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis did some light running and caught passes from a machine Friday and remains questionable for Sunday's game at the Arizona Cardinals. Davis, recovering from an ankle injury suffered during the 49ers' loss to the Chicago Bears, said he would be ready to play if he's given the green light, despite missing the week of practice. Backup tight end Vance McDonald, recovering from a knee injury also suffered in the loss, could also return to action. ''I'm always optimistic in all phases of my life,'' McDonald said.

    Jay Cutler figures he won't see a better front seven than he will when the Chicago Bears visit the New York Jets on Monday night. Cutler faces another challenge after passing a big test last week, when the Bears rallied for a surprising win at San Francisco. He showed his poise in that game, helping Chicago rally from 17 down to beat the 49ers and avoid a 0-2 start. The defense came up big, too, and the Bears pulled out a win that few saw coming after they opened with a loss at home to Buffalo.

Wilkerson was tossed when he got into it with Packers players in the third quarter of Green Bay's 31-24 victory last Sunday. Wilkerson was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct, as was teammate Sheldon Richardson.

    19 Sep 2014 | 2:51 pm
    Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Drew Stanton will start at quarterback in place of Carson Palmer for the second straight week when the Cardinals play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Arians said that if Palmer is in good enough condition, he will be the backup quarterback. ''He's improved dramatically,'' Arians said, ''but he still can't throw.'' Stanton's numbers weren't spectacular - 14-for-29 for 167 yards - but he committed no turnovers in Arizona's 25-14 road win over the New York Giants last Sunday. Stanton knows Arians' offense well because he was the backup to Andrew Luck in Arians'…

The FDA currently enforces a ban on donations from gay and bisexual men, which it instituted in 1977.  The report, released by from the Williams Institute, estimates that roughly 360,600 men would likely donate blood if they were allowed by the FDA, increasing the blood supply by 2 to 4 percent.  In July, Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced a resolution that asks the city to support lifting the…

    A new report released today suggests that if men who have sex with men were allowed to donate blood, the annual blood supply in the U.S. would increase by 615,300 extra pints of blood every year.

  • Looking Is The Only Action Esta Noche Is Getting These Days

    After the sad shuttering of Esta Noche earlier this year, the noted 16th street gay bar is making a bit of a comeback — but only in the lightly fictionalized, prime cable version of San Francisco. On Thursday night, crews from HBO's Looking, who are back in town shooting season 2 until November,were at work outside the bar. While we didn't see any famous butts occupying the director's chairs in front of Pancho Villa Taqueria.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    Federally indicted Chinatown gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow has sued San Francisco and its mayor, demanding records that he says will implicate Ed Lee in the same bribery scandal that entrapped Senator Leland Yee. Chow claims that Lee took $20,000 from Michael Anthony King, who the lawsuit claims is actually UCE 4773 in the criminal indictment against Senator Yee — the guy who posed as a Georgia businessman and offered Yee's henchman Keith Jackson $20,000 to alleviate debts from Yee's unsuccessful 2011 mayoral campaign. According to Chow, Mayor Lee took $500 from King and laundered it…

    Philadelphia police are thanking a few random good samaritans on Twitter this week for helping identify the gang of heterosexuals who shouted homophobic slurs while severely beating a gay couple in an unprovoked attack in Center City last Thursday. We reported yesterday that two victims, 26 and 28-year-old boyfriends, were approached by a large group […]

    ​A homophobic preacher spreading hate “in the name of God” on the James Madison University campus in Virginia got more than he bargained for when faced with a group of students that fought back with a pretty powerful weapon: love. According to social media reports the preacher began his “sermon” by telling a gay couple […]

    This is the day I spent all day doing nothing on my couch.Oh, I watched a biography on Jamie Foxx and another about John Ritter; I guess that was something.In my mind I stayed busy.I checked my email, read my Google Reader, viewed my Facebook, and watched a half dozen Ted Talks. At different intervals, exhausted from such mental excursion, I took two naps. The only times I left my couch were to go to the bathroom and to warm something in the microwave, which I ate while sitting on my couch. At times my couch is much like an astronaut’s pilot seat.It is very confining, but gives me an…

  • An Audience with Meow Meow

    15 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    At Berkeley Rep, international singing sensation and über-award-winning comedienne Meow Meow stars in the world premiere of An Audience with Meow Meow, a theatrical journey of gargantuan proportions. Meow Meow’s new cabaret show at the Berkeley Rep is so different she almost defies explanation. She’s not one-of-a-kind in the way Cirque du Soliel is one-of-a-kind, but you start heading down that road, if you follow me. At the outset, the lines between Meow Meow and Liza Minnelli (either in or out of “Caberet”) are obvious. However, the version of Minnelli that informs this…

    Tantalizing the senses at The Slanted Door in San Francisco. This we already knew. But now, finally, the not-so-secret secret is apparently getting out. Readers of Saveur magazine (one of our favs) have pegged San Francisco as their pick for top culinary destination. What wise, well-informed (and attractive) readers. Saveur said in a statement, “San Francisco, as our readers have discovered, has never been tastier. Food lovers are flocking to this unassuming yet proudly original culinary mecca for its unique take on sustainable, seasonal cuisine, its vibrant street-food scene, its…
  • Rigoletto – Opera San Jose delivers another classic

    Resident tenor Kirk Dougherty as the Duke of Mantua in Opera San Jose’s 2014-15 season opener Sept. 6-21. Leaving the opera, someone murmured incredulously, “this is San Jose?” Like it or not San Jose is to San Francisco as Worcester is to Boston.  However, gems like Opera San Jose make such comparisons unseemly. A resident company that grooms young voices for international careers, Opera San Jose selects its material carefully, aligning it with their young voices as well as their venue, the California Theatre, a 1927 vaudeville and film house. Their season opener moves…
