SAN FRANCISCO, REAL ESTATE, AND MORE

Tartine Bakery is one of the most outstanding bakeries in San Francisco. Serving everything from rustic country bread to sweet and delicate pastries, the bakery has developed a reputation that leads hundreds of hungry people to line up at their door on Guerrero Street daily.

The good news is Tartine Manufactory has opened a second spot at 595 Alabama Street, also in the Mission. While lines may still form at this new location, at least you have a second place now to satisfy your cravings for massive buttery croissants. The menu also includes sandwiches and salads to go along with the pastries – making any possible wait more than worth it.

This upcoming Saturday, October 22, the annual Festival of Rock Posters will take place in the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Many older San Franciscans will find this hard to believe, but 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the invention of the psychedelic rock poster.

These posters were an important part of the San Francisco music scene back in the day. Much like the music they were promoting, they broke all the rules and helped to create a completely new culture and experience, with its own unconventional forms of expression.

The entire world was enraptured by what was taking place in San Francisco at the time. On Saturday, you'll have a chance to see and even purchase the posters that embodied an entirely new counterculture mindset.

baybridge - REV Hodgepodge Thursday

Good news for all you cyclists and pedestrians! The bike path spanning across the Eastern span of the Bay Bridge is finally completed. Don't get too excited just yet, as there are a few finishing touches to add before the path is finally open to the public, but after many delays in the process it looks like it won't be long until the path between Oakland and Yerba Buena Island finally opens.

The construction of the path has taken a couple of years, mainly due to construction delays and design tweaks. Although it is possible for cyclists to continue on to Treasure Island from Yerba Buena Island, the SFCTA is advising against it, mainly due to the road being tight and congested with people attempting to enter the freeway. Shuttle buses will be

The Giants have won nine straight playoff elimination games in recent years, so they know the drill. Still, after losing two in Chicago, if San Francisco wins tonight against the Cubs, they've got to win two more games to take this five-games series. That's a lot of do or die.

As they like to say in sports, let's take them one game at a time. Tonight, we've got Madison Bumgarner on the mound at home, so the odds might actually be in our favor at least for this game. If we win tonight, it's one more game at AT&T Park on Tuesday, and a final game in Chicago on Thursday if necessary, and we of course hope it will be necessary.

All of this against the Chicago Cubs, a team many consider to be the best in baseball - winner of 103 games during the

Yesterday, Forbes released an article detailing "The Wealthiest People in America", where the top 400 billionaires and millionaires were revealed. As with previous years, Microsoft founder Bill Gates tops the polls with an impressive $81 billion. 

Out of the top 20 wealthiest people in America, 14 reside in the Bay Area. It's probably no surprise that Mark Zuckerberg comes out on top in the Bay Area, worth a whopping $55.5 billion! Right behind comes Larry Ellison of Oracle and Larry Page of Google. 

SFist has used the Forbes list and published just the Bay Area top 14. Check it out here.
