San Francisco has a lot to offer in terms of food and drink with almost every street in the city’s 49-square miles filled with restaurants and bars. The best part? Some of those bars are breweries, too!

I decided to take a trip to the less-known Social Kitchen & Brewery and I am definitely glad I did. Social Kitchen is a semi-recent addition to the Inner Sunset district. Not even two-years old, it brings some … Read more

Besides hanging out with people dressed in really cool but … Read more

If I made a list of my favorite things to ingest, cheese and whiskey would definitely be in the top five. So excuse me while I get all ooey-gooey about the whiskey & cheese session I went to at the Cheese School of San Francisco on Friday. The word “school” in the name might make you think of a classroom but it’s more like a big dinner party with 10 world-class cheeses, five diverse international … Read more

Best of Whiskyfest

Whiskyfest San Francisco was Friday. There were a lot of men in kilts but they were outnumbered by bottles of whiskey. 200 different kinds available for tasting.
