By DEE DEE THOMPSON
This morning, I made my first purchase at Adore Me, a subscription-based online retailer for sleepwear, lingerie, and activewear. After a few months of disappointment with the plus-size options at Savage x Fenty (Rihanna’s lingerie subscription site) I decided to try something new, and admittedly a little bit lighter on my pockets…
SAY WHATEVER THE F*** YOU WANT ABOUT BARRON TRUMP
By MAX BRUNO
Constitutional Law expert Pamela Karlan spoke to the House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment-related hearing yesterday. Since then, the country has been thrown into frenzied discussion over her remarks regarding the conduct of the President:
EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT OUR CONSTITUTION AND ITS VALUES, AND MY REVIEW OF THE EVIDENTIARY RECORD, TELLS ME THAT WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP INVITED — INDEED, DEMANDED — FOREIGN INVOLVEMENT IN OUR UPCOMING ELECTION, HE STRUCK AT THE VERY HEART OF WHAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY THE “REPUBLIC” TO WHICH WE PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE. THAT DEMAND CONSTITUTED AN ABUSE OF POWER … BASED ON THE EVIDENTIARY RECORD, WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE CASE BEFORE YOU IS SOMETHING THAT I DO NOT THINK WE HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE: A PRESIDENT WHO HAS DOUBLED DOWN ON VIOLATING HIS OATH TO “FAITHFULLY EXECUTE” THE LAWS AND TO “PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION.” THE EVIDENCE REVEALS A PRESIDENT WHO USED THE POWERS OF HIS OFFICE TO DEMAND THAT A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT PARTICIPATE IN UNDERMINING A COMPETING CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY…
YOU CAN NOW TAKE ‘SHROOMS’ LEGALLY IN DENVER
ALEX MAK – MANAGING EDITOR‘Magic Mushrooms’
Denver Colorado has become the 1st major American city to make tripping on shrooms, legal.

It feels like decades have passed since Conde Naste named the “big little city” one of the 10 best places in the world to retire. But it wasn’t decades ago – it’s been just over three years since that grandiose claim was made. There was a time when Concord was considered a good place for the poor to achieve some upward mobility. This is not that time….
S.F.’S SADDEST CLOSURES OF 2019
BY PETER LAWRENCE KANE
2019 was known for a lot of disappointments, from the Mueller Report to Days of Our Lives firing its cast en masse, but in San Francisco, a lot of beloved places closed.
There are stirrings of hope, such as how The Punch Line got saved to the return of Blowfish Sushi in the Mission to the predicted resurrections of North Beach Italian classic Tosca and Chinatown legend Empress of China (which closed in 2014 and which the Hakkasan team will reopen as Empress of Boon next year). Bernal Heights’ wonderful butcher Avedano’s Holly Park Market also managed to survive owing to an anonymous rent-paying savior. And The Elbo Room may hace closed on Jan. 1, but reopened as The Valencia Room, which continues its tradition of hosting Litquake and other events…
