The event will benefit charities such as Stepping Stone, Special Delivery and the San Diego chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual indulgence.

In the gay community, “bears” come in many shapes and sizes, but primarily they symbolize the epitome of masculinity; they are usually husky, hairy and confident in their identities.

Local coffee roasters raise the bar

SAN DIEGO, California -- It’s just a cup of coffee. It’s the black, ubiquitous liquid that makes mornings hurt less or brings the afternoon a caffeine-laden second wind. Coffee has long been a beverage more mindlessly ingested than tasted and appreciated. All that is changing now. As foodies move toward fresh, organic, local everything, it’s only natural that the coffee industry­—purveyors of something 63 percent of Americans consume daily—would catch on. Finally, coffee is joining the upper ranks alongside craft beer, cold-pressed juice, artisan cheese, and other high-brow food and drinks.
