SF is… beautiful
Where do you get your local gossip? I scan through the local mags – the gossip here is not that interesting however.
Who's your favorite quintessential local character? Manicure Versace, a beautiful drag queen – because she is so sassy.
Where's your go-to date place? Farina – because the pesto pasta is sexy.

What's your favorite SF institution? Yerba Buena Center of the Arts.
What do you get obsessive about here in SF? Bi-Rite & Uber cabs.
What local merchant have you been meaning to check out? Rare Device on Divisadero – it looks cool and I can walk to it
What would you change about SF? The cold nights. I miss sultry, warm summer nights
