Or maybe you’re just pinching pennies, saving for a rainy day. Or hell, maybe you’re one of those people who doesn’t feel the need to spend money to let the dads in your life know you find them endearing. Whatever your philosophy, there’s still time and ways to make this Father’s Day memorable without breaking the bank while offering a San Francisco bent to things and supporting local businesses. More

Let Us Eat Cake!
By grace chen (Jul 13, 2007)
Encased behind protective glass counters like diamonds in a jewelry store, displays of cupcakes may soon become not only a girl’s new best friend, but also everyone’s new guiltiest indulgence. Like diamonds, these baked creations come in different sizes. They glisten with buttercream and Italian meringue frosting. Colors and brilliancy range from vanilla white to pearly pink. Best of all, they come in their own version of Tiffany boxes without the Tiffany prices. More

Fresh for Valentine's Day
By Amy Sherman (Feb 11, 2005)
