EBGB Wine Bar Events at PCL
Few other communities have their own in-house wine bar and event venue that puts on as many creative events as PCL's EBGB Wine Bar run by Monty Paulsen and Gigi Benson!
Due to the success we've had as an event space, we will be
moving away from our standard "Open Bar" night every week, and will
focus on event-based openings for the summer.
But don't fret, many of these events will be on Friday and
Saturdays, and many will be open to the public, so you'll still be able to stop
in and have a glass of wine from time to time. You'll just have to check the
event schedule to see when these are, and what to expect. Watch for the emails,
or check out our Facebook page.
Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming events and parties,
including our re-scheduled Brazilian Dance Party, our big Yelp exclusive party,
additional theater and music nights, and guest winemakers.
Monty and Gigi.

SF Rents Up, Up and Away - 50% or more!
I can't imagine moving to San Francisco today. When I moved to Oakland a few months ago, my Hayes Valley apartment was re-listed for 85% more than we had been paying for the few years prior. It was snatched up. Our Oakland mortgage is about 2/3 of the cost of renting that Hayes Valley two bedroom today, and we get twice as much square footage. Why would you pay $3000+ to rent a rundown two bedroom with a landlord in San Francisco, when you could pay half that at PCL to own and get as much or more space?
SFist has great coverage of the increases at http://sf.curbed.com/archives/2012/05/14/the_bad_news_as_suspected_rental_rates_have_increased_dramatically_over_the_past_year.php
But I think the image above speaks for itself (click here for high-resolution
). From January-March 2011 to the same period in 2012, average rents posted on craigslist went up as follows:
