STREET SEEN [Caitlin Donohue: Although I originally contacted former Stanford University football offensive guard and current Apple employee Ish "Mr. Marina 2013" Simpson for help in writing a style guide to the Marina, he wrote me back a rundown so evocative that I hated to paraphrase his words. And so this week, I've given my style column over to him. Check out sfbg.com for my recap of the glorious March night he was crowned king of SF's preppiest neighborhood, and don't forget, you can add flair with a belt.]Read more »

SPORTS Did you see what Jed Lowrie (swoon) did last Wednesday, on the very day my column about him hit the streets? He propelled the A's to their first win of the regular season, going 3-3 with a walk, the game-winning 2-run double, and a home run. In fact he hit two doubles that game, then two more the next — also a win.

This means he loves me too. Although . . . it's hard to imagine he got a very good look from way down there on the field.Read more »
