“the tablehopper” is a free weekly e-column (an email newsletter) of San Francisco restaurant reviews, news, gossip, and goings-on written by yours truly, Marcia (rhymes with Garcia) Gagliardi.

The tablehopper e-column is sent every Tuesday (and restaurant reviews run on Fridays), and includes the latest on which chef is going where, restaurants that are opening or closing, reviews of new or established places, food and wine events, bar news, features with getaway ideas, book reviews, and special guest columns on wine and and spirits. Oh yes, and star sightings in restaurants. Check out the latest one.

And, yay, tablehopper is free, which means more going-out money for you. But I have to pay the bills somehow (this ain’t no charity), so please note tablehopper will occasionally send out sponsored emails that are, you guessed it, paid for by generous sponsors. These emails always say “sponsored email” in the subject line. If you don’t wish to receive these (sporadic) sponsored emails, subscribe to the tablehopper RSS feed, or set up a email rule with your mail program. Otherwise, just wield the power of your delete button.

Sponsors don’t and never will have access to your email address and personal info. That would be evil.
