Hot to trot

When someone says "knit", I always have this image of a cute li'l granny knitting while swinging back and forth in her rocking chair on her front porch. And for some reason, the end product is always a baby blanket. Which means I previously couldn't give a stuff about knitting because, quite simply, baby blankets have nothing to do with me.

But then I realised - hey wait! Knits can mean clothes! Knits can mean warm and non-frumpy! And non-50 +! (Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's fine if you are over fifty, but I'm not. Not age appropriate, you see?)

So here are my favourite knit dresses. Big, chunky cardies are in too - but first we need some clothes underneath.

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
