Without further ado, we announce the winners of the 2014 Chowder Cook-Off at Fisherman's Wharf. Visit these restaurants and chow down on the best chowders at Fisherman's Wharf!
AS MUCH AS WE SELL OURSELVES... on the idea that we float through a shrink-wrapped, everything-at-any-time calendar, and the world outside our door is an overflowing cornucopia that always has a bevy of whatever bite we crave, the earth still abides by the seasons, which means that yes, there is a time for all things. The foods of the sea are very much incorporated in that hold-fast philosophy, with Dungeness dominating that roster, at least around NorCal when the middle of fall arrives. For early November is crab time 'round San Francisco and points north, and a number of spots right on the water and a pinch inland'll be filling out holiday orders, creating special stews and hot pots, and serving the crab goodness straight-up, all month long....

The largest Italian Heritage Parade the city has ever seen will march through Fisherman’s Wharf and North Beach on Sunday, Oct. 12. And that’s saying a lot, considering it’s San Francisco’s oldest civic event, celebrating its 146th year, and the nation’s oldest Italian-American parade. “This year is going to be the biggest parade we’ve had so far,” said Tony Passanisi, president of the nonprofit Columbus Day Celebration Committee. “We’ve had to stop taking entries.” Eighty-seven units – some containing hundreds of people – will march. It starts at Jefferson and Stockton Streets in Fisherman’s Wharf, proceeds south through North Beach on Columbus Avenue, and ends in Washington Square in front of Sts. Peter and Paul Church. Parade viewing is available throughout the route. Passanisi wasn’t sure why this year attracted so many entrants, but guessed the good weather lately or the excitement surrounding the return of Fleet Week might be reasons.
