    7x7 - Insider's Guide to the Best of San Francisco

    The next time you hop on your bike, go for a run, or just hit the circuit after a few AirFit sessions, you'll feel like a super hero. What's AirFit's power? Is it the rays of the yellow sun shining down on you as you drive to the Pleasanton training facility? Mysterious substances in the steam room? Nothing that mythical: instead, they've built a space-age training room, then sucked the oxygen from it, creating an atmosphere similar to that of a high-altitude location. Which means that those of us who live and work out in low-lying San Francisco will  be gasping for…

  • 4 Restaurants Give Low-Proof Cocktails the High-End Treatment

    No hard liquor license? Most places just default to pouring wine and beer. But there are new kinds of low-proof cocktails being concocted at restaurants around the city, and we’re not talking saketinis, people—these are complex drinks using sherries, vermouths, agave wine, beer, or house-infused sakes to great effect.The slightly cheaper price point is a score, although the drinks can have even more labor and attention applied to them. They’re also more food friendly than high-proof cocktails, and hurt your head less. Is it just Thursday night? Yeah, drink up.  Chubby Noodle Marina…

    Sean Wilsey's 2005 memoir. “We used to call this Café High,” author Sean Wilsey says of Café International, our meeting spot, before letting out a hearty chortle. By “we” he means his late-80s classmates at the Urban School, the private prep school 10 blocks or so from the Haight and Fillmore coffee shop. By “high” I assume he’s alluding to marijuana in some form or another, but I’m too intrigued by Wilsey’s instant openness and nostalgia to probe. Despite four other high schools (he never graduated), myriad other cities (he doesn’t come back to San Francisco very often…

    MAVERICK’S (CBS SF) — The monster waves battering Southern California generated by Hurricane Marie were forecast to move into Northern California Thursday through the weekend, generating increased wave heights, but likely nowhere near the 15-foot breakers that damaged homes and piers across the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. The now-tropical storm Marie off Mexico’s coast kicked up waves anywhere from ten to 15 feet in height, and forced coastal residents to hastily stack sandbags around garages and doorways in advance of the pounding surf topping the sea walls.

  • 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…

    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…

    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…
  • Giants' mid-season report card

    15 Jul 2014 | 1:48 pm
    As a team limping into it, the all-star break couldn't have come quick enough for the Giants after their downward spiral that started in early June.Over the last several weeks, they've demoted their closer, lost their leadoff hitting center fielder and have gotten next to nothing offensively from the second base, shortstop, center field and left field positions over the last 4-6 weeks. That's 1/2 your lineup vastly underachieving so it's easy to see where the chunk of the Giants' downfall blame should lay. Hunter Pence has been about as steady as they come after a quiet week or two to start…

    For a club with the recent struggles the Giants have had and the way they're banged up and in need of a rest right now, the All-Star break cannot come soon enough.Last week, we discussed at length some of the issues with the pitching staff, both relief and in the rotation, but right now the team's offense looks tired and are in the midst of a prolonged slump. This offense went through the first 2 months of the season hitting for both power and average, making run-scoring pretty much a non-issue. It helped them get out to that huge lead in the West and to the best record in all of baseball.

Cleveland pitcher, Ray Caldwell on this date in 1919, was flattened by a bolt of lightning in his debut with the team. However, he recovered to get the final out of the game and defeated the Philadelphia A’s, 2-1. So you think you were tough!

    A struggling Tim Lincecum started Saturday night for the San Francisco Giants against a Washington Nationals team that’s given him fits for the last several seasons. He wasn’t around very long. Jordan Zimmermann pitched eight strong innings, Asdrubal Cabrera homered and the Nationals kept up their dominance of the two-time Cy Young Award winner, beating the Giants 6-2 Saturday. Lincecum (10-9) was seeking his 100th win in the majors, but turned in the second-shortest start of his career. He gave up six runs, four of them earned, on six hits and four walks in 2 2-3 innings.

    WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — One night after his team’s 10-game winning streak was ended in a drubbing by the San Francisco Giants, Washington center fielder Denard Span said it was important the Nationals answer back. They did. Loud and clear. Jordan Zimmermann pitched eight strong innings, Asdrubal Cabrera homered and the Nationals kept up their dominance of two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum with a 6-2 win Saturday. Jayson Werth added a pair of RBI singles and Span had a triple and single for the NL East-leading Nationals, one night after San Francisco trounced them 10-3.

Henry Melton, one of several defensive linemen trying to fill Ware's void, should make his Dallas debut in the preseason finale against the Broncos on Thursday night. The 32-year-old Ware says it will be different ''on the other side of the bar.''

But ultimately his separation is there, he’s getting open.” The two haven't hooked up much in the…

    The Whisky Richards delighted the Taste of Sonoma crowd at MacMurray Ranch. It’s almost here. This weekend sees one of the year’s biggest wine events take place in Northern California. Sonoma Wine Country Weekend (Aug 29-31) has quickly become a bucket list checkbox- well, at least once in a lifetime for any food and wine lover. What can you expect at SWCW? For one thing, this event takes place across the valley. So each experience is unique. You can pick and choose–winemaker lunch here, BBQ over there–and create your own culinary adventure along the way. Then…
  • Water by the Spoonful (Review)

    “Odessa” (Zilah Mendoza) finds herself needing to be taken care of by “Fountainhead” (Patrick Kelly Jones) in TheatreWorks’ Regional Premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, playing August 20 – September 14 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. Quiara Alegría Hudes wrote the book for In the Heights, an electric, exuberant show that we’ve reviewed when performed by Broadway by the Bay and Broadway San Jose. Its Latin warmth, driving rhythms, and unbridled optimism will keep it on our stages or decades to…
  • San Francisco: ‘Buyer & Cellar’ a delicious romp (Review)

    Buyer & Cellar starring Michael Urie at the SHN Curran San Francisco. What would Barbra think? Buyer & Cellar is a funny, funny one-man show that drew rave reviews when it opened in spring 2013. Now on tour with the same Michael Urie who appeared in the original production, the show just opened at the Curran. If this were the theatrical equivalent of a beach novel (and the show’s spun convection froth would make it an excellent beach read), you’d never toss it aside to close your eyes because you’d be too busy laughing. Urie is the barely employed actor Alex More – recently…
  • Wine Report Card: Which states offer consumers best access? (Rankings)

    Wine selection at a Costco in San Jose. Laws prevent some states from selling wine through retailers. If you love wine you should consider living in one of the states rated “A+” for access to wine: California, DC, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oregon and Virginia. On the flip side, you may want to avoid those that fared less well, receiving a failing grade: Utah, Colorado and Pennsylvania among others. This according to a new report “The 2013 State-by State Report Card on Consumer Access to Wine” (pdf) published by the the newly formed American Wine Consumer…
  • Cops and Robbers: Violence and moral culpability in Oakland (Review)

    Black on black, blue on black, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Johannes Mehserle – the whole thing whirrs, going faster and faster like a news story you just wish would finally end. Eventually, even hearing the news reports over and over removes a little bit more of your humanity. It’s like listening to reports on Gaza – the soul-destroying story that won’t go away. Cops and Robbers dive bombs straight into one such episode. With many in the audience turning off stories about the Ferguson riots as they entered the Marsh, Ferreira’s performance was not so much…
