The Roaring Twenties: Treat Yourself

Posted February 9, 2012 | 02/09/12 10:16 AM ET

SFTs, have you ever been on a date with yourself? I don't just mean walking alone from BART to your apartment, or waiting at the bar playing Words With Friends while your friend finds a parking spot in the Mission or even going to a coffee shop with your laptop,...

The Roaring Twenties: A Love Letter to Polk Street

1 Comments | Posted December 27, 2011 | 12/27/11 03:33 PM ET

SFT's, what you're about to read is completely biased. I just want you to know that up front. In my two-and-a-half years living in the city, I've always lived within 5 minutes of Polk Street. So, yes, it's rather convenient for me to write a love letter to something so...

The Roaring Twenties: No FOMO

Posted November 21, 2011 | 11/21/11 03:13 PM ET

San Francisco Twenty-somethings, I had a great weekend, thanks so much for asking. I had a potluck at my apartment on Friday night, I attended another one in San Jose on Saturday afternoon, and later that night, I got drinks in Oakland to celebrate a friend's birthday. However, I did...

The Roaring Twenties: Spring Training

Posted October 26, 2011 | 10/26/11 01:00 PM ET

SFTs, have you ever been to a Giants game?

I realize that this question isn't particularly timely, what with our men in orange and black not performing quite as well as we had hoped this season, but I want to ask it anyway. If you live in BART-vicinity of AT&T...

The Roaring Twenties: Pick a Side

Posted September 26, 2011 | 09/26/11 09:07 PM ET

Brace yourselves, SFTs. I think I might have a case of Bay Envy. I need your help with the diagnosis.

Perhaps I should explain my symptoms first. I've been spending a bit more time in Oakland of late, which isn't entirely unreasonable given that I work in Emeryville. I'm beginning...

The Roaring Twenties: Domestic Tranquility

Posted September 7, 2011 | 09/07/11 01:24 PM ET

Bonjour, fellow SFTs. (Sifties? Nifty sifties? Can I get away with calling us that?) Pardon the bilingual lede and my absence -- I was fortunate enough to spend the past two weeks on vacation in London and Paris, taking in tourist sites and turning an ignorant eye to the painfully...

The Roaring Twenties: The Taming of the Hipster

Posted August 9, 2011 | 08/09/11 04:58 PM ET

Fellow SFTE's, I have a confession to make: I'm more of a hipster than I'd like to admit. I'm entirely sure what that means, because I think the first rule of being a hipster is that you don't talk about being a hipster. Or something along those Fight Club lines....

The Roaring Twenties: What's Our Age Again?

Posted August 1, 2011 | 08/01/11 01:36 PM ET

Greetings, SFTEs and SFTE-adjacents! I imagine you've gotten used to the acronym by now. In case you haven't, here's a little refresher: It stands for San Francisco Twenty-something Experience, and I invented it two weeks ago as I discussed the tendency of SFTs not to STFU about their years...

The Roaring Twenties: Generation Gaffe

Posted July 12, 2011 | 07/12/11 11:53 PM ET

San Francisco twenty-somethings are a curious bunch. They can be elitist assholes, willing to shell out $5 for a single scoop of ice cream, and cheap bastards, trekking home by foot to and/or from the Mission instead of putting that same Lincoln towards cab fare. They can refuse the ubiquity...
