After the jack-o-lanterns have been put to rest in the compost pile and the costumes retired to the closet, children everywhere will be feeling the post Halloween-doldrums... along with their candy-hangovers. Help your kids get their motors -- and imaginations -- running by exploring one of these great kid-centric autumn adventures.
The San Francisco Bay Guardian has announced the winners of their annual Best of the Bay Awards, including Editors' Picks and the Readers' Poll for the best places to eat, drink, and shop, both in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love, this year's picks are dedicated to "the fantastic, far-out pleasures of the Bay."
What began 40 years ago in San Francisco is being celebrated worldwide this summer, with events across the country and in Canada, England, France, Germany, and the Czech Republic, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love and the birth of the '60s counter-culture movement.
