SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — KCBS reporter Liam Mayclem will be providing KPIX 5 users with a weekly tip list on how best to survive the current coronavirus outbreak.
BOOK: THE ANSWER IS
“Reflections On My Life” by Alex Trebek.
Jeopardy host Trebek, the man who asks for answers delivers few in this memoir just out. He is somewhat of an enigma and that is reinforced in this skimming the surface book about his life as host of America’s most popular and second longest running (since 1964) game show. Who is Alex Trebek? We may never know. I recommend the audible version.
FARM2U: CUESA FARM BOX
Support local farmers and eat healthy with a box of fresh produce from SF’s CUESA Farmers Market. Get your order in by midnight Friday for pick up at the market on Saturday. It’s also National Farmers Market Week so please visit the SF Ferry Building market Saturday, Tuesday & Thursday. Please support your local farmers and CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture)
FOOD: CHOW CIAO
Enjoy “socially distanced” al fresco dining on the patio space at LUPA Italian trattoria in Noe Valley, San Francisco.
The Rome inspired cuisine hit all the right notes during my recent visit: a trio of bruschetta (mushroom, prosciutto & peppers with hot, melted cheese) to get you started. Check the specials board for yummy pastas of the day and don’t say ciao without devouring LUPA’s tantalizing tiramisu. The windeful wines sourced from Italy will take you on a journey from Calabria to Piedmonte to Tuscany. No passport required. You can also order food to go. Grazi Stefano and team LUPA.
GIVE: FOOD BANKS
Our food banks urgently need donations by way of food and funds. Please consider a donation, no matter how small. For those in need the food banks are there for you with daily boxes and bags of groceries to go.
MOVIE: REBUILDING PARADISE
Director Ron Award presents an emotional roller coaster ride of a doc full of heart & hope about a Northern California community rising from the ashes in “Rebuilding Paradise”. The film is available now to stream via Netflix and some other platforms. A preview here.

WINE: 1881 NAPA
Visit 1881 NAPA in Oakville and enjoy wine & history under one roof. The museum shares the stories behind the faces of NAPA wine country from Vallejo to Yount & many more and takes you on a tour of the wine appellations that produce some of America’s finest wines.
Stop by @oakvillegroceryandwinemerchant for your lunch & soak up the sun & vino, socially distanced on the patio. If the pizza oven is cooking don’t depart without a piece of the perfect pie. The 1882 Chardonnay is a French style, oaky, buttery party on the palate. Winemaker & Bon vivant Jean-Charles Boisett (JCB) is behind the wines and this incredible wine country spot. Salut.
