Tech Boom Too Far?

A restaurant in San Francisco is now using iPads as plates.  At Quince, one can now order ‘A Dog in a Search of Gold,’ which features truffle croquettes on top of an iPad that plays a movie of dogs hunting truffles.  Of course the iPad doesn’t actually touch the food (that would potentially break it)…

San Francisco’s Military History

For those who want to learn about the military in San Francisco and partake in some wine while they are at it, some of the Bay Area’s wineries have been set up for that purpose.  What you will learn is that San Francisco has been prominent in so many more areas than just culture and…

SFC Warriors Luncheon

Summer in the Bay

San Franciscans sure know how to enjoy the long summer days where the produce is blossoming. If you’re in the area, don’t forget your picnic table and grill. The United States Bartenders Guild – together with the CUESA – sure know how to get the most out of the Ferry Building during this time. At…

Killing Two Birds…

San Francisco has long suffered with housing shortages.  The reason being, is that the city has geographically very little land.

What’s the Time, San Francisco?Clock

Although not traditionally linked to clocks, San Francisco does have a few clock-related news stories.   First, there is the story of the clock in the Ferry Building.  For almost 20 years, this is the clock that Dorian Clair has been taking care of.  It has been ticking (off time) since 1898 – the year of…
