The Gym for your Brain — It’s Fun!

Regular exercise for our brains is just as important as it is for our bodies. Experts tell us that consistent, structured workouts three or more times a week in a setting with other people who are engaged in similar activities is the best way to maintain any improvement program.

Studies show that regular mental workouts emphasizing reasoning, memory, language, quantitative, visual and spatial skills can translate directly to improvement in our lives. We all want to be on top of our game whether we are planning, organizing, driving, remembering a word or name or just concentrating on a task.

The Magic Flute Restaurant

One of San Francisco’s most romantic restaurants, the Magic Flute, has a new and exciting menu reflecting California-Italian Cuisine.The restaurant is reminiscent of a family-run trattoria found in a small Tuscan village. Sunlight streams in through large picture windows in the front dining room, and after dark, Florentine wrought-iron chandeliers, imported from Europe, infuse the room with soft light. The equally beautiful rear dining room looks onto a lovely, flower-filled patio with white Italian marble tables and large Italian market umbrellas that make the heated patio the ideal spot for al fresco dining.

If it is nice out you can sit in the outdoor garden and get a warm shot of sun along with the specialties. Brunches are also tops and very popular with the Presidio Heights set. The restaurant, as pretty as it is during the day, turns into a very romantic restaurant at night. If you were in Italy, you would write home about a place like this.

Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair

The craftsmen at the Cobblers Bench are amazing.

Don’t get put off by the neighborhood – Laurel Village is a wasteland of idle, rich, rigorously blonded mothers and their mini-me offspring – just dodge the Hummer-sized strollers and go.

When my beautiful high-heeled boots were on the verge of expiring (I’d practically worn off the heels… they looked as though they’d been thrown into a pack of teething wolf cubs), Zavo brought them back to life, looking even better than when they were new
