9 Things To Know Before Your First Trip To San Francisco

San Francisco is a city that everyone should visit at least once. It’s built on a small spit of land and surrounded by water on three sides.

Nuts & Bolts: Perfect Pet for an Overachiever

Working long hours is a given in entrepreneurship. My father and uncle, who tended their small hardware store in Crockett, routinely worked sixty-hour weeks and did so for over fifty years. I had no choice but to embrace this work ethic as I was hell bent on perfecting a hardware store; 70, 80 and even 90 hour weeks became required. It worked – in 1997 we were awarded the Ace Hardware President’s Cup as the best Ace in the United States – but grueling hours take their toll. My brother Robin recognized that I was an over-achiever and, concerned, one day he came up with a remarkable solution. It involved a lanky, toothy canine named Caleb.

San Francisco’s new love affair with parklets

Almost every indulgence we’ve become used to has been taken away by the pandemic, or, at the very least, redefined and molded into new versions. Slow Streets and Shared Spaces initiatives in San Francisco, the latter of which is responsible for the city’s plethora of parklets, have been among the few jewels created during the previous seventeen months.
