After that insane finger-wagging Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer gave President Obama on the tarmac in Phoenix the other day, it's no wonder the president would prefer to be campaigning in San Francisco, where we don't mind gays or immigrants, and we would never think to make a creepy, bullet-riddled T-shirt with Obama's face on it.

Word in the blogosphere is that President Obama and the First Lady will make yet another appearance in San Francisco next month, where he's holding a campaign fundraiser and dinner for his 2012 presidential bid.

This trip to our fair city is reportedly part of a three-day swing across the West Coast, where Obama plans to also stop in Los Angeles and Seattle.

Ticket prices to see President Obama at a reception prior to the dinner will start at $100.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
