By Michelle Sieling (Jul 28, 2009)
Since the middle of the last century, San Francisco has been known for its progressive political beliefs. Over the past few decades, it’s also been identified as a foodie haven. It only seems natural that in a blending of the two the city’s residents have embraced the urban gardening phenomena, the movement toward sustainably raising a certain amount of your own food within the limits of a major city. More »
Transportation That’s a Real Treat
By Michelle Sieling (Jun 30, 2009)
Bike trends tend to come and go. One year it’s a hybrid bike, next year it’s a fixie. But one classic design that has lasted through the ages is the classic Dutch bike, the same kind you might see being pedaled through Amsterdam’s canal-lined streets. Often discounted for their heavy frames, these practical and reliable bikes move many of the residents of the Dutch capital from point A to point B daily without a lot of fuss. Bikes are used there by everyone for everything, in any type of weather, in any type of clothing. More »

Do Not Pass Go
By Michelle Sieling (Apr 15, 2009)
I’m not going to lie -- I’m a geek for Gama-Go. I’ve been waiting for Gama-Go’s first retail store to open for quite a while. Rarely do I get this excited about a new store, but when they confirmed they were opening a retail space in SOMA on 8th Street at Folsom just downstairs from their old warehouse space, I couldn’t wait to get there. More »

By Michelle Sieling (Mar 17, 2009)
Imagine you had a really cool bohemian aunt who had traveled the globe and every day you could go over to her house and lounge on her couch, play with her little dog, and borrow whatever you liked from her closet…for a monthly fee. That’s what La Library, which opened in February on Guerrero Street between 15th and 16th streets in the Mission is like. More »

Beautiful Blooms and Graceful Gifts
By Michelle Sieling (Jan 13, 2009)
Once again we’ve reached the time of year for red, white and pink window displays of boxes of chocolates and bouquets of flowers. The rose of course is the flower commonly associated with Valentine’s Day. Dating back to the 17th century, the theory goes that the red rose was chosen as it was the favorite flower of Venus. A single perfect red rose combined with baby’s breath is called a “signature rose” by florists and is the most common way that people demonstrate their love florally on Valentine’s Day. More »

By Michelle Sieling (Dec 30, 2009)
Just this last November a new pet boutique named Cheengoo opened on Nob Hill at the corner of Clay Street and Mason Street. Oh wow, really, another overpriced pet boutique, you say?

Blending Brooklyn with the Bay
By Michelle Sieling (Dec 09, 2009)
What does Brooklyn style look like to you? People sometimes forget that Brooklyn is a big place, with styles shifting from neighborhood to neighborhood. When I think of Brooklyn, a few images different come to mind: a Williamsburg hipster, a Hasidic Jew in Borough Park, and even a Russian woman in a babushka in Brighton Beach’s “Little Odessa”. More »
