At a Gourmet-sponsored event at Copia years ago, some guests were a little surprised at how soft spoken Ruth Reichl can be onstage. Find out for yourself later this month, when Reichl will be on stage at the S.F. Jewish Community Center, talking about her latest book, For You Mom, Finally (Penguin Press, $13). Reichl is the author of Comfort Me with Apples, Tender at the Bone, Not Becoming My Mother: and Other Things She Taught Me Along the Way, and Garlic and Sapphires. Her new book is a reflection on her mother's life, and the sacrifices and pain an older generation of women endured. The 11 a.m. start time on a Tuesday means you'll have to blow off work that morning, or go to lunch afterward and ditch the office altogether.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
