Once upon a time, a nationwide website took it upon itself to teach local communities how to teach themselves things. Recently, the site opened its e-doors to San Francisco, kind of. Classes haven't started yet, but many potential listings are already up and you can sign up to be a "watcher" — someone who is interested in one of the course descriptions. Many of the courses are under $20, and will be taught by people who've got local cred in the topics at hand — which so far include fantasy football strategies, underground dinners, social media skills, and whiskey 101.
