I’ve been hearing great things about the show..I’m going tonight.
Back by popular demand after a sold-out run last November at ODC, Monique Jenkinson (aka Fauxnique), multifaceted performer extraordinaire returns to the stage in a reworked and installment of her very popular solo show.
Thursdays-Sundays February 4-21
Sliding scale pay what you can Thursday nights.
“Revelatory and inspirational…Jenkinson is must-see because of her technical excellence, ability to create beauty, and rare personable flair for drama.” — SF Bay Guardian
I was hearing a lot about Anusara Yoga and decided to check it out. Truth is, I wasn’t really into yoga until I experienced an Anusara Yoga class led by Katchie Ananda at Yoga Kula. The studio itself is a beautiful, light filled room with a wall of windows overlooking the Mission District.
The style of Yoga is very spacious with an emphasis on breath and philosophy. Katchie in particular weaves a dharma talk throughout every teaching that always reaches my heart and soul.
See schedule for Katchie
My other favorite teacher there are Skeeter Barker who does a sliding scale class on Mondays. Anusara Yoga is a school of Hatha Yoga which unifies a life-affirming Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness with Universal Principles of Alignment.

Earmark your next unemployment check for something REALLY special!!
Just as I became hopelessly spoiled by Blue Bottle Coffee along comes Four Barrels. They bring coffee and doughnuts to a new level. I love them for their NO WIFI – NO CELLPHONE – NO CRAPPY MUSIC policy that provides a grounding social environment.
Exquisitely designed by Boor Bridges Architecture who also designed Flora Grubb, the interior conveys a post consumer chic minimalist modern feel.
Where? 375 Valencia Street
When? Mon – Sat 7-8 Sun 8-6
Rex is an old acquaintance from back in the days when I was washing dishes and he was working at Streetlight Records on Market Street. I always loved his work and have to say that he is one of my favorite visual artists in the world. Not only is he cute, but he has a cute dog that I often see him walking around the neighborhood.
Oh yes, the DVD. Fabulous. A chronicle of his life and methods of working. Highly recomended viewing for all interested in art and culture.
See Rex’s work at Gallery16.com
Also, his work is being sold at Jonathan Adler on Fillmore Street.
Where Giorgio Moroder Street meets Klaus Nomi Avenue, just past the entrance to Afrika Bambaataa Freeway, there lives the vinyl purist Bus Station John. view site
Solo performance by Keith Hennessy.
This is the last show in the “Keith Hennessy’s A Queer 20th Anniversary” series. Everything I have seen has been fantastic. Keith is back and he is one of the key figures spear-heading the performance art revitalization in SF.

Just to say, DJ Bus Station John is the only DJ that I follow religiously. 80% because of his selective tastes in retro-70′s-bath house music and 20% because of the fun and often uninhibited crowd.

Every Sunday morning I meet my friends Charly and Brett for breakfast and we inevitably ponder the same question…where should we eat? Zazie is to crowded, Universal Cafe is too noisy and crowded, Zuni is too expensive. Brett suggested that we try out this super charming, uncrowned restaurant cafe where he often eats after surfing out at Ocean Beach.
Loved it. The food was standard-good. Breakfast and coffee was $10, a bargain by SF standards and the service was friendly and relaxed… yes, relaxed. I found what I’ve been searching for.
