    For years, 455 14th Street has been known as the “Faerie House.” As something of the Radical Faeries’ spiritual home for over a quarter-century, it’s been the site of numerous gatherings (sexual and otherwise) as well as a the spot for weekly yoga and potluck dinners.

  • Giants appear to be runners up for Sandoval

    20 Nov 2014 | 11:54 pm
    With Pablo Sandoval visiting Boston this week, it caused quite a stir on the East Coast and has every media outlet predicting the free agent third basemen will land with the Red Sox.Now, the Giants are certainly not out of the running, but based on every indication being made from Pablo's camp and the Giants' behalf leads one to believe that the headlines are most likely true. The San Diego Padres have made a late push here as well, and although they're likely third in line behind Boston and San Francisco, their interest likely jacks up the price just a little bit. My guess is that whatever…

    Just as expected, in the two weeks of offseason there's been since the Giants won the World Series, their primary focus has been on retaining postseason machine, Pablo Sandoval. However, as they try diligently to persuade their incredibly popular third basemen into returning, they've also begun to ponder over some of the outfield options that are on the market.I don't think the market for Sandoval was quite as big as The Panda was anticipating, but apparently their is at least one other team who's interest is rivaling the Giants, and that is Boston Red Sox. He's scheduled to visit with Boston…

    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.

    Perhaps more than ever before, young players are the currency of baseball. Those old timetables have been torn up as teams have watched Manny Machado, Bryce Harper, Sonny Gray, Andrelton Simmons and others get fast-tracked to the big leagues. Almost every club has a young player or two being discussed. Are they ready? Will they be ready at midseason?

He was one of the many reasons Colin Kaepernick had such a poor night catching two interceptions and almost getting a third off of him. Never one to remain quiet he went ahead and let the 49ers fans have it as well when he was on the sideline.Did his trolling stop there though? Absolutely not.@cjzero/TwitterRead more »

    If you thought that the first interception that Colin Kaepernick threw to Richard Sherman earlier tonight was a fluke I’ve got some bad news. That’s right. He did it again. Not a terrible pass like last time, but a bullseye read by Sherman, and then he had the gall to mock the 49ers faithful surrounding him at Levi’s Stadium. I’m no psychic, but I have a feeling San Francisco might never forgive him for this. Seattle went on to win 19-3 and the 49ers are really up against the ropes in the toughest division in football.

    The NFL is a marketing machine, a network of television, online, print and other media platforms that push the league’s message at every turn. It’s a mechanism that churns out stars and makes average Joes household names. Most of the time, that’s a good thing; the league is promoting the game by highlighting the people who make it click. But it’s not always appropriate. Sometimes, people aren’t ready to be stars and/or household names. Perhaps they don’t have the résumé for it. Maybe they don’t perform well in the limelight. But once they are there, it’s hard to get them out…

German soldier Georg (Max Tachis) embraces war nurse Anna (Caitlin Papp) in ‘Truce’. World War I was a long time ago. One hundred years last July, Gavrilo Principin shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, thereby lighting the tinder that resulting in 16 million dead. However, unless you were in Europe – or if you’re an NPR junkie – you might have missed the anniversary entirely. In marking this event, City Lights goes where no other theatre company in the bay…

Peter Callender) about his land in Aurora Theatre Company’s West Coast Premiere of Breakfast with Mugabe Peter Callender is one of most arresting actors in the bay area. He draws you in and keeps you there, leaving you to hang on every flicker of expression.
