  1. The Ultimate Food and Music Guide to San Francisco

    We’ve done a number of City Guides here on Turntable Kitchen, and the other day, as I was taking a stroll through Golden Gate Park, I realized that I’ve never actually done a City Guide for the city that I live in. The one I’ve lived in for the past 8+ years! How crazy is Continue…

    Though I'm constantly discovering new places, I think I know my city pretty well so I've decided to share some of my favorite things to see and do in SF (and of course, places to eat).

  2. San Francisco’s Inner Sunset Neighborhood

    I’ve been living in the Inner Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco for nearly 10 years (what?!) and the reaction I get from people when I tell them where I live has gone from, “Where is that?” to “I love that area! I want to live there!” It’s been strange and satisfying to hear my hood Continue…

  3. City Guide: Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara (Japan)

    Last month, Matt and I were presented with the opportunity of a lifetime to go to Japan on an ‘inspiration trip.’ We were selected to join a small group of creative influencers as part of UGG Australia‘s Creative Council. You can read more about that here and watch a little video that UGG Australia’s team Continue…

  4. City Guide: Nashville, Tennessee

    Although we just returned from a trip to Japan, my Nashville City Guide has been a long time coming, so I’m finally sharing it (don’t worry, Japan is soon to come!). Nashville has been on my ‘to-do’ list as a city to visit for quite some time. I must admit that country is probably my Continue…

  5. City Guide: Louisville, Kentucky

    A few months ago, I was flipping through Flipboard (ha!) on my iPad in bed when I came across Lonely Planet’s list of Top 10 US travel destinations. The number one place on their list? Louisville, Kentucky. I yelled out to Matt, who was brushing his teeth in the bathroom to relay my curiosity about Continue…

  6. City Guide: Mendocino, California

    One of my favorite things about living in the Bay Area is being only a few hours’ drive away from some truly magical places. Getting away for a long weekend isn’t quite as easy with a baby (though we certainly aren’t cutting travel out of our lives; we’ve just accepted that it’s a little more Continue…

  8. Single Serving: The Walkmen – Heaven

    It was 2002 when I first saw the video for “Wake Up” from the debut album by The Walkmen titled Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone. I was watching my most recent VHS recording of the MTV2 show 120 Minutes, when on came a promo featuring a group of smartly dressed lads playing Continue…

  9. Travel Guide: Sicily

    The Sicilian sun is very hot. Or, perhaps it is the combination of the sun and the dry winds that blow in from Africa. Sicily is located at the tip of Italy’s ‘boot’ and parts of it are actually geographically closer to Tunisia than Rome. I knew this before I went there, but only when Continue…

  10. Turntable Kitchen’s Top 5 Recommended Turntables (and Tips for Selecting Your Own)

  11. Product Review :: Thinksound ts02 headphones with mic

    Ever since we featured the Westone 3 earbuds awhile back on the site, I frequently receive comments noting that although the Westone 3’s sound like a great set of earbuds, they also carry a high price tag to accompany their high quality. Understandably, many readers aren’t interested in purchasing earbuds at that price point. But Continue…
