A team with serious pastry and coffee credibility is breathing life back into the Hayes Valley space left empty last year by the departure of San Francisco’s beloved 20 th Century Cafe . Two business partners from San Francisco’s Four Barrel Coffee and the Mill have teamed up with a former pastry chef from Tartine Bakery to open Loquat at 198 Gough St., at Oak Street, in October. The cafe will serve baked goods inspired by the Jewish diaspora and Levantine flavors, from labne cheesecakes topped with roasted figs to Turkish coffee cream pie. Cups of Four Barrel espresso will arrive with a complimentary treat like house-made halvah or candied citrus.

They also co-own San Francisco’s the … [Read more...] about Four Barrel partners and Tartine alum bring new Jewish bakery to S.F.

0 Kids & Family Share the endearing, humorous and cautionary lessons your father taught you. Drew Himmelstein , Patch Staff Posted Reply My father taught me how to mix martinis at the age of 11. This meant that at cocktail hour, he could lounge on the couch while I served him an icy, dry vodka martini (three olives) and then relax as I played classical music on the piano. From his perspective, it's probably one of the most valuable things he ever taught me. I asked Patch Facebook followers about the most important thing their fathers taught them . The answer? Crickets. I can't believe Larkspur and Corte Madera are filled exclusively with absentee dads, so we'd still love to hear the endearing, humorous and cautionary lessons your father's taught you.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 The advance hype for "Don't Worry Darling" has been so incessant - from director Olivia Wilde's location-turned-relationship with her leading man, Harry Styles, to a Kabuki-like feud with her lead actress, Florence Pugh, and something involving Chris Pine and Styles at the recent Venice Film Festival - that it's easy to forget there's an actual movie at the center of it all. A movie that's not a disaster, but not particularly distinguished; a movie that, in the end, will wind up being as forgettable as its own bizarre publicity. "Don't Worry Darling" opens at a party in the sleekly appointed living room of a 1950s tract home, where Alice Chambers (Pugh) and her husband, Jack (Styles), are entertaining their neighbors with copious amounts of booze, cigarettes and slinky dancing set to Ray Charles's "Night Time Is the Right Time." The setting is the anonymous inland community of Victory, … [Read more...] about ‘Don’t Worry Darling’: Trouble in a ‘Twilight Zone’-adjacent paradise
