Shaq thought the Warriors played in San Francisco

NBA Shaquille O’Neal made “Inside the NBA” actually stop a highlight in progress Thursday night. He seemed confused in the middle of it as to where the Golden State Warriors play, although he said later that he was just kidding and wanted the people to laugh. Kenny Smith didn’t believe him.

Small airlines battle to serve the most remote US cities, where even empty flights can be profitable thanks to millions in subsidies

An Advanced Airlines Beechcraft King Air 350 aircraft. Joey Gerardi/Gerardi Aviation Photography The US government's Essential Air Service program gives subsidies to airlines serving remote cities. Around $315 million is being spent in 2021 for Lower 48 cities, given largely to the country's smallest airlines.

from the archives: all over the world, i tell people where to go

On our recent trip to Oregon and California, I made a note every time someone asked me for directions. That may seem like an odd thing to track -- unless you're well-established as a magnet for The Lost. Not the spiritually lost. The physically lost and uncertain.On this trip, we remembered three times: near the dog park in Berkeley, on a street corner in San Francisco, in a parking lot in Portland. It's possible there were others we didn't note and forgot. We shared a laugh: it still happens....

Best ways to score a cheap flight upgrade for your next international trip

Looking to fly business but not take a second mortgage out on your home? Lucky for you, there are plenty of ways to upgrade a flight.

European travel requirements seemed dauntingly strict. Turns out I was overprepared.

In early August, as I was packing my carry-on for a month-long trip to Europe, I was sure I had everything in order for my first international flight since the start of the pandemic. I’d triple-checked the requirements for entering Portugal, where the emergence of the Delta variant had complicated an already fickle travel landscape. I slipped my CDC-issued vaccination card and the negative results of a rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours of my departure into the sleeve of my passport cas...

The Hospitality Employee Conundrum and How to Adapt | By Derrick Yee

As we come out of the pandemic, the conundrum of finding and retaining hotel employees has reached new levels. Prior to the pandemic, this challenge was primarily experienced in extremely low unemployment markets (like Austin and San Francisco) as well as highly seasonal markets that had to flex labor to match changes in demand.

This adorable California winery’s vintage trailer park is the ultimate girl getaway

After two years of living in San Francisco, I became cynical about the California wine country experience. It was gorgeous, but always crowded. The wine was delicious, but always expensive. The food was fantastic, but I always ended up waiting an hour in the heat for a table. It took a trip down south to the Central Coast to understand that Napa and Sonoma represent just a small slice of the state’s viticultural experiences. The small city of Paso Robles offers an entirely different vibe, fre...

friends and family reunion road trip: day ten: berkeley to medford

Yesterday, we got a short list of car repair places in Berkeley that are open on Sunday. Allan went out to try to get the electrical issue fixed, while I packed up and took care of the pups. No joy: the garages were either closed or extremely busy. One place said they "might" get to it in a few hours. We made a sign "TURN SIGNALS NOT WORKING" and stuck it on the rear windshield. (Thanks to our wonderful Berkeley host and her incredibly well-appointed cottage!) We had a burger and a hotdog from S...

friends and family reunion road trip: day eight: long-distance friends meet up in san francisco

Yesterday, after we dropped the pups at daycare, Allan and I took the BART into the city, but got off at separate stops.

Allan always hunts down used book stores when we travel, but this was a special find, something he's wanted to do for years. (As usual, I had no idea of this until we pla...

friends and family reunion road trip: day seven: dodgers vs giants!

Yesterday, family and friends from different areas of my life were brought together, through our plans -- and through baseball! We dropped the dogs at the daycare place in the late morning, then headed back to the BART station. (I noticed that regular parking is $3.00, which means the reservation service is double the normal cost.) We took the BART to the Muni Metro. From the train I saw many homes in Oakland with memorial murals for victims of police shootings, painted in ways that would be vis...
