In case you haven't noticed, our fair city has been overrun by bibliophiles, which can only mean that we're in the throes of Litquake!

Join us at The Chapel Saturday, Oct.
It’s a bit daunting to stand inside a massive, richly detailed theater when it’s empty. The spiraled balconies appear larger than ever, the busts lining the walls seem to stare, and the room’s grandeur feels entirely overwhelming. To experience the venue during a live show is almost a sensory overload. Therein lies the magic of San Francisco's historic Warfield.

It's time to escape from flavorless burgers and droopy french fries. For the past twenty-five years, Jacques Pépin, internationally recognized French chef and tv personality has joined us in our kitchens, and hearts, to provide us with tips and recipes for fast food, his way. This October marks the end of a long and delicious run for Pépin, who recently began production on his last (and thirteenth!) series, Jacques Pepin: Heart & Soul, filming at the local KQED studios.
I have recently fallen under the aldehydic spell of perfumes. In a short time, I have amassed an impressive collection: vintage Chanel No. 5 in a crystal bottle, Olympic Orchids’ DEV #1, Andy Tauer’s L’air du Désert Marocain, Estée Lauder’s groundbreaking White Linen and, yes, even Poison, Dior’s notoriously assertive ’80s scent.
