Sally Around the Bay

My name is Sally (if that wasn’t obvious already) and I want to thank you for following me as I tour around looking for fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m going to be exploring the Bay – uncovering hidden gems as I go – and using this blog to document my experience. I have so much fun bopping around from restaurants in the Bay Area to funky shops and boutiques that I decided it would be selfish of me NOT to share all of my experiences with the world. Whether you’re a bored local or are planning on visiting San Francisco, my goal is for you to discover something new, fun and maybe even thought provoking to do in the Bay Area through this collection of blog posts. Please note that I live in Marin County so I may be a little biased toward things to do in Marin and I’ll probably focus on more things to do in Marin County than anywhere else in the Bay. However, I promise I will be adventurous as I sally across the bridges and step over the county line on a regular basis. Knowing I have to document lots of lesser known fun things to do in the Bay Area will force me to try new things and get out of my comfort zone.

Defending Measure Y

I'm a Berkeley native but I have been living in Oakland for the past 10 years. This blog is devoted to informing the public and keeping those that are interested up to date on my lawsuit against the City over Measure Y. I am a lawyer and I have been representing myself in this action. I graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law (UC Berkeley) in 1992. In my day job, I represent public entities, including school districts and community college districts. However, the lawsuit I have filed has nothing to do with my job. I hate corrupt, lying and insincere politicians. I love my neighborhood and I believe Oakland has great potential. I also love fighting for things I believe in.

Cooking With Amy

Hi! I'm Amy Sherman, a San Francisco–based cookbook author, food writer and recipe developer. I launched the blog, Cooking with Amy, in 2003. Not long after it was chosen one of the top five food blogs by Forbes and also singled out by The Guardian (UK) as a top food blog. It has received over 2 million visits. On the blog I offer original recipes, reviews, commentary, news and culinary travel information. I hope you enjoy visiting as much as I enjoy writing and sharing my discoveries. I am honored that my blog is listed as a “Site we Love” by Saveur, linked to as a favorite by Cooking Light, Epicurious, Good Housekeeping and Redbook among others and was “blog of the day” on the Julie & Julia movie web site. I write for various magazines, including Cheers, where I write about food and beverage pairing. I also write about trends and culinary travel for Epicurious, write restaurant reviews for SF Station (a local city guide) and was a weekly contributor at KQED’s food blog, Bay Area Bites for over five years. I was also contributing editor at Glam and wine and spirits writer at Project Foodie. I am the author of Williams-Sonoma New Flavors for Appetizers and Wine Passport: Portugal (SmartsCo) and wrote the introduction to a recent reprint of the classic Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book.

Forage Oakland

Forage Oakland is a project that- at its core- works to address how we eat everyday, and how everyone can benefit from viewing their neighborhood as a veritable edible map, considering what is cultivated in any given neighborhood and why, and what histories influence those choices. The gleaning of unharvested fruits; the meeting of new neighbors; the joy of the season's first hachiya persimmon (straight from your neighbor's backyard, no less); the gathering and redistribution of fruits that would otherwise be wasted- can be powerful and can work to create a new paradigm around how we presently think about food in our collective consciousness. Imagine gathering several friends for morning, midday, evening or weekend foraged city bicycle rides through your neighborhood.

All About George

I work at Bay Area News Group-East Bay’s Contra Costa Times, a 160,000-circulation newspaper that covers much of San Francisco’s East Bay. As the Times’ online coordinator, I offer best-practices advice on blogging and social media, moderate site forums, polls and reader-generated content; and create a daily “link and load” list of daily-buzz stories for budgeting awareness. I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor’s in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University. My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University’s Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers’ universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at thestandard.com and salon.com. I joined the Times in 2001 as a copy editor and paginator and then as the paper’s first morning online reporter.

Marin Mommies

Marin Mommies was developed and launched by Pamela Fox in January, 2007. A stay-at-home mom of two small children, Pamela grew up in San Rafael, and currently lives in Novato. It is her hope that Marin Mommies will be a place for moms (and dads, too) to come together to learn, advise, discuss, and share tips and resources with other parents in Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area—and anywhere else, for that matter. Much of the content in Marin Mommies is specific to the Bay Area and Marin County, but much will be of interest to parents everywhere!

The Lemon Lady

I am a Mommy raising our daughter to protect and respect the environment. I wonder, what does it all mean? What can I do (what can we all do) to make our world a better place? There are so many apartments and condos throughout California and beyond that have no curbside recycling programs. Imagine the hundreds of thousands of children who attend school every day, and have no idea what this simple, common idealogy really means?
