1906 Aardbewing in San Francisco: nasleep

Ten spyte van die groot verwoesting, het San Francisco vinnig herstel van die aardbewing, en die verwoesting het planners in staat gestel om 'n nuwe en verbeterde stad te skep. San Francisco, 'n klassieke Westerse boomtown, het toevallig gegroei sedert die goue stormloop van 1849. San Franciscans kon uit 'n byna skoon leisteen die stad herbou met 'n meer logiese en elegante struktuur. Die vernietiging van die stedelike sentrum in San Francisco het ook die groei van nuwe dorpe rondom die San Francisco -baai aangemoedig, wat ruimte gebied het vir 'n bevolkingsopbloei uit ander dele van die Verenigde State en in die buiteland.


10 noodsaaklike cocktails wat u tuis kan maak

Die Chief het my gevra om 'n lys van tien drankies op te stel wat u absoluut moet leer hoe om te maak as u u kop hoog wil hou in hierdie wêreld van skemerkelkies. Alhoewel dit nie maklik was om dit tot 10 te hou nie, is ek baie tevrede met die drankies waarmee ons geëindig het. Ek sê 'ons', want die Chief het hier 'n rol gespeel. En jy moet bly wees dat hy dit gedoen het. Sonder hom het u moontlik 'n lys van 10 verskillende Manhattans -style.

As u leer hoe om die drankies wat ek hier beskryf het, te maak, sal u repertorium so divers wees dat u almal kan oortuig dat u 'n hand met 'n skudder is. As u nie leer hoe om dit te maak nie, kan u baie moeilik wees. Ek beplan om volgende week op jou drumpel te kom om jou te toets. Hou baie ys byderhand. En baie whisky ook.

Maar voordat ons na die skemerkelkies gaan, is dit miskien goed as ek 'n paar eenvoudige, maar dikwels misgekykte feite oor die maak van drankies in die algemeen aanwys.

- Dit is die beste om 'n skemerkelkie vir ten minste 10 sekondes oor ys te skud, en as jy roer, verdubbel die hoeveelheid tyd. Dit is minder as dit en u drankie nie koud genoeg nie, en dit bevat ook nie genoeg water wat uit die ys gesmelt is om die skemerkelkie 'slukbaar' te maak nie. Die water kalmeer die siel van die gees in die drank.

- Bedien koeldrank in verkoelde glase.

- Resepte is nie in klip geskryf nie. Probeer om na resepte as riglyne te kyk, tensy spesifieke handelsname vereis word.

'N Goeie manier om dit te bemeester, is om u bestanddele individueel te proe voordat u die drankie vir die eerste keer maak. Volg nou die resep presies en proe die drankie. As dit te "hierdie" of nie "genoeg" is nie, dink aan elke bestanddeel en verander die verhoudings van die bestanddele dienooreenkomstig. Nou dink jy soos 'n kroegman.

-Moenie die marsipaan-geurige, clown-neus-rooi maraschino-kersies gebruik nie. U kan Luxardo maraschino -kersies aanlyn koop as u gourmet -voedselwinkel dit nie dra nie, of u kan soos die Windmill Lounge in Dallas, Texas, 'n paar bevrore kersies in Luxardo maraschino -likeur vir ten minste twee dae marineer. Hoe dan ook, as u een hiervan gebruik, bring u u cocktail -geek -vriende op hul knieë.

- Maak 'n eenvoudige stroop deur 1 koppie gegranuleerde suiker in 1 koppie warm water op te los. Laat dit afkoel en bêre dit in die yskas.

Ek het nog iets om by te voeg, en dit is 'n rukkie inligting wat alle goeie kroegmanne weet: dit is maklik om drankies te maak. Moenie geïntimideer word nie. Dit is maklik. Eerlik.

Wat nou nie maklik is nie, is om 'n kroegman te wees: om 'n menigte mense te hanteer - eienaars, bestuurders, bedieners, sjefs en gaste wat prokureurs, kruideniers, fietsryers en kundiges kan insluit oor omtrent elke onderwerp onder die son - terwyl hulle drink, verander, verfraai en kyk na die een kliënt wat jy hoop sal bly totdat jou skof eindig. Moenie vir 'n oomblik dink dat jy 'n uitstekende kroegman kan wees omdat jy drankies kan maak nie.

Maar leer u hoe u heerlike drankies kan maak? Dit is 'n flenter.

Binne: Die tipiese resep vir 10 cocktailklassieke, plus beursie-vriendelike wenke oor die versorging van die tuisbalk.

Voorsien die drankkas

Terwyl Gary Regan hard besig was om sy 10 cocktails wat u moet weet, te kies, het ons gewonder: hoeveel sou dit kos om ten volle voorbereid te wees om u barvaardighede te wys? (Dit was duidelik dat ons in die verre verlede Boy Scouts was.)

Spesiale bestanddele word benodig om al 10 hierdie drankies te maak. Sommige is in mini -bottels beskikbaar, maar die koste kan u daartoe lei om 'n meester van byvoorbeeld agt uit 10. te word, tensy die lugvaart u handtekeningdrankie is - of u nie in die oorspronklike formulering is nie - u kan die crème de violette deurgee.

Tog kan u 'n kroeg ten volle vir minder as $ 250 voorraad hou. Hier is 'n handige padkaart met pryse in Bay Area -winkels (bottels van 750 ml, behalwe soos aangedui). Die stootwaentjie kos ekstra.

Vodka: Moenie pla nie. Plaaslike Skyy ($ 15) of Tito's ($ 18) uit Austin, Texas, is albei baie goed. Maar Smirnoff ($ 13) werk goed, en laat geld vir ander dinge. Koste: $ 13

Gin: Hoeveel u jenewer geniet, bepaal u koste. Vir basiese cocktails is Beefeater ($ 17) of Broker's ($ 20) meer as voldoende. Self sou ek die wodka oorslaan en 'n bietjie spuit op gin: Plymouth, Martin Miller's, Damrak en Amerikaanse sterre Bluecoat en 209 hang almal $ 30. Koste: $ 17

Whisky: Vir cocktaildoeleindes, kies twee tussen bourbon, rog en gemengde Scotch. As gaste veral van whisky hou, kan hulle hul eie bring. Vir Scotch presteer Famous Grouse ($ 19) steeds beter. Vir Bourbon is die waarde-keuse Evan Williams Black Label ($ 10) in die ketting: Elijah Craig 12-jaar ($ 20) en ons keuse, Buffalo Trace ($ 21). Maar rog sal 'n groter indruk maak. Probeer die Rittenhouse 100 Proof ($ 20) of die 80-bewys neef ($ 18). Koste: $ 39 (Famous Grouse en Rittenhouse 100)

Rum: Verouderde rum lyk soos 'n goeie pad, veral as die donker en stormagtige seisoen aanbreek. Goed verouderde rum is nie goedkoop nie, maar die Barbancourt 8-jaar ($ 26), of selfs die Haïtiaanse handelsmerk se 4-jaar ($ 20) of White ($ 19) bied diepte en effens hoër bewys. Koste: $ 26

Brandewyn: Moeilike keuse, want kwaliteit wys. Enkele betroubare keuses: Hardy VS Cognac ($ 26), Ferrand Ambre Cognac ($ 33) en Asbach Uralt ($ 28) uit Duitsland. Rugsteun sluit Hennessy VS ($ 25) en Korbel VSOP ($ 14) in. Koste: $ 26.

Tequila: 'N Behoorlike staaf bevat 'n 100 persent agave -monster (gemerk op die bottel). Tog is bekostigbare keuses moeilik om te vind. Soek Milagro Silver ($ 25), Cabrito Reposado ($ 20) of Pueblo Viejo Reposado ($ 25). Koste: $ 25

Likeurs en bitter: U kan dinge bespaar soos goedkoop triple sec, in welke geval u drankies suig. Kies eerder u behoeftes versigtig. Real Cointreau is die goedkoopste in die grootte van 1 liter ($ 42). Ander noodsaaklikhede: Luxardo Maraschino likeur ($ 28) en Campari ($ 24). Koop ander in 50 ml -groottes soos nodig, hulle bly vars. 'N Bottel Angostura -bitter ($ 6) is verpligtend. Koste: $ 72 (Cointreau, Campari, Angostura bitters)

Vermout: Koop klein bottels en hou dit in die yskas. Noilly Prat (vir droog) en Martini & Rossi (vir soet) kom in 375 ml -groottes ($ 4). Koste: $ 8

Toerusting: Een staalskudder ($ 6) met 'n pintgrootte mengglas ($ 3). Jigger ($ 3). Barlepel ($ 2). Zeef ($ 2,50). Koste: $ 16,50

Totale koste: $242.50

Droë gin Martini

Champagne -skemerkelkie

Outyds

Champagne -skemerkelkie

Leer jouself om die beste Champagne -skemerkelkie op die aarde te maak, en as jy dit reggemaak het, drink dit. Rooster jouself vir 'n goeie werk.

Die geheim agter hierdie een lê in 'n skaars half ons van die beste Cognac wat u byderhand het. Voeg dit by 'n tradisionele Champagne -skemerkelkie - 'n drankie wat al meer as 150 jaar oud is - en u weet waaroor goeie drankies gaan. Dit gaan oor kompleksiteit, en dit gaan oor eenvoud. Dit is so maklik. En dit is so ingewikkeld.

Maak 1 drankie

  • 1 suikerblokkie geweek met 'n paar druppels Angostura -bitters
  • 1/2 ons Cognac
  • 5 gram verkoelde sjampanje
  • - Suurlemoenskyfie vir garnering

Instruksies: Giet die bestanddele in die volgorde wat in 'n Champagne -fluit gegee word. Voeg die garnering by.

Mai Tai

Nou gaan jy leer hoe om 'n mai tai te maak, en jy kan nie 'n mai tai maak sonder om stroop te hê nie - veral amandels met 'n sweempie oranje blomwater. U kry dit moontlik nie in die geriefswinkel op die hoek nie, maar dit is nie te moeilik om in 'n stad soos hierdie te vind nie. Die mai tai is soortgelyk aan die Ramos -gin -fizz omdat die resep dit 'n bietjie afskrikwekkend laat lyk, maar in werklikheid is dit 'n stukkie koek. Die ander ding wat u moet weet oor die mai tai is dit: Dit klink kitsch, maar dit smaak baie ernstig. As u nie die twee rums in hierdie resep het nie, vra dan 'n assertiewe verouderde rum in die drankwinkel en vervang die volle 2 gram rum - u sal nie te verkeerd gaan nie.

Maak 1 drink

  • 1 1/2 onse 10 Cane rum
  • 1/2 gram Wray en neef oorbestande rum
  • 1/2 ons Grand Marnier
  • 3/4 gram orgeat stroop
  • 1/2 ons vars lemmetjiesap
  • 1 kruisement takkie, vir garnering

Instruksies: Vul 'n skemerkel met twee derdes vol ys en voeg al die bestanddele by. Skud oor ys en sif in 'n fyngemaakte, ou ysige glas. Voeg die garnering by.

Negroni

As dit langer as 30 sekondes neem om te leer hoe om 'n ordentlike Negroni te maak, wil u dalk oorweeg om 'n ware kroegman aan te stel om drankies reg te stel as u 'n lekker kuier het. Herhaal na my: Gin. Campari. Soet vermout. Gelyke verhoudings. Op die rotse. Oranje wiel - of oranje draai - versier. Het dit?

Die ongelooflike aspek van die Negroni wat nie almal verstaan ​​nie, is dat dit elke keer werk, ongeag watter jenewer of soet vermout jy gebruik. En u kan my pols slaan en my Deborah noem as dit nie ook werk nie, ongeag die verhoudings wat u ook gebruik. Ernstig. Gaan op met die jenewer, klim op die Campari, klim op die vermout. Hierdie drie bestanddele is sielsgenote, en hulle ondersteun mekaar, ongeag hoe u hulle probeer mislei.

En om Negronis voor ete te bedien, is inderdaad 'n groot ding.

Maak 1 drink

  • 1 1/2 onse Campari
  • 1 1/2 onse soet vermout
  • 1 1/2 onse gin
  • 1 oranje wiel, of oranje draai, vir garnering

Instruksies: Giet al die bestanddele in 'n ysgevulde outydse glas en meneer kortliks. Voeg die garnering by.

Manhattan

Die Manhattan is dieselfde as die martini, aangesien almal sy of haar eie gunsteling manier het om dit te maak, maar 'n paar reëls geld vir byna almal soos hierdie: Gebruik 'n goeie hoeveelheid soet vermout , moenie die bitterheid spaar nie en gebruik 'n goeie bourbon of reguit rogwhisky as basis. (Lees my volledige weergawe van die Manhattan by sfgate.com/ZGSK.)

Balans is alles in 'n Manhattan, en die beste manier om dit te bereik, is om elke bestanddeel - bitters ingesluit - te proe voordat jy die drank bymekaarmaak. Laat die heelal nou die leisels neem en gooi totdat dit reg voel. Ek verkies myne op die rotse, en as jy dit ook doen, is dit die beste om dit presies op dieselfde manier voor te berei as om 'n reguit weergawe voor te berei, en dan in 'n outydse glas gevul met vars ysblokkies te sit.

Maak 1 drink

  • 2 gram bourbon of reguit rogwiskey
  • 1 ons soet vermout
  • 2 tot 3 strepies Angostura bitter
  • 1 Luxardo maraschino -kersie, vir garnering

Instruksies: Meng al die bestanddele in 'n mengglas. Voeg ys by. Roer en sif in 'n verkoelde skemerkelkie. Voeg die garnering by.

Outyds

Jy sal moet weet hoe om 'n wonderlike outydse te maak as jy jou baas wil beïndruk as jy haar vir ete wil hê. En maak gereed om u hertogte vir hierdie een te maak - baie cocktail -geeks sal u vertel dat die enigste vrug wat in 'n outydse hoort, 'n suurlemoen- of lemoenwending is.

Histories het hulle reg, maar maak hierdie baba met gemorsde vrugte en genoeg Angostura -bitter om 'n volwasse man te laat huil, en jy wen hierdie ronde sonderlinge. Die geheim lê in die bitterheid. En die kersie. Onthou jy nog wat ek oor die kersies gesê het?

Maak 1 drink

  • 1 suikerblokkie
  • 3 tot 5 tot 7 strepies Angostura bitter
  • 1 Luxardo maraschino -kersie
  • 1 halfwiel oranje
  • 3 gram bourbon of reguit rogwiskey

Instruksies: Meng die suiker, bitter, kersie en lemoen in 'n outydse glas. Voeg ys en whisky by. Roer kortliks, vir ongeveer vyf sekondes.

Droë gin Martini

Wil u weet hoe om 'n tipiese droë gin -martini te maak? Ek ook. Dit is absoluut onmoontlik om u te begin vertel hoe u dit reg kan maak, bloot omdat elke man en vrou wat op die aarde drink, 'n eie weergawe het. Alhoewel myne die beste droë gin -martini is wat iemand ooit in die bekende heelal geproe het, het ek nog niemand gevind wat met my saamstem nie. Gaan figuur.

Hier is 'n resep wat nie eers in seep geskryf is nie, wat nog te sê van klip. Sukkel met verhoudings. Kies u eie gin - Beefeater, Junipero, Plymouth en Tanqueray werk alles. Kies die droë vermout wat u wil - solank dit Noilly Prat is. En besluit self of dit 'n olywe of 'n suurlemoen -draai is wat jou smaak prikkel. Moenie net dom genoeg wees om die suurlemoenwending te kies nie. Probeer egter om 'n skeutjie of twee of oranje bitters by te voeg. Hulle was teenwoordig toe die drank gebore is, omstreeks 1900, en hulle het daar ongeveer 'n halfeeu gebly. . .

Sommige mense hou daarvan om hul martini's te skud. Ek is redelik seker dat hulle hulself hiervoor moet verduidelik wanneer hulle by die parelhekke kom, dus ek beveel sterk aan dat u hierdie baba roer.

Maak 1 drankie

  • 2 onse gin
  • 1/2 ons droë vermout
  • 1 tot 2 strepies oranje bitter
  • 1 olywe, vir garnering

Instruksies: Meng al die bestanddele in 'n mengglas. Voeg ys by. Roer en sif in 'n verkoelde skemerkelkie. Voeg die garnering by.

Ramos Gin Fizz

Die Ramos gin -fizz is een van God se geskenke aan die bibulous. Dit is nie so moeilik om te maak soos almal dink nie, so dit is 'n goeie drankie om in die mou te sit. U sal die snoeste gaste beïndruk as u hierdie een kan uittrek, en solank u nie deur die bestanddele geïntimideer word nie, is dit maklik.

Henry Ramos, die skepper van hierdie Fizz, het sy eie metodes gehad om seker te maak dat die drank reg voorberei is: Hy het 'n groot aantal kroegmanne gehuur wat die skudder van die een na die ander verbysteek totdat die drank die gewenste konsekwentheid bereik het. By die Mardi Gras -vieringe in 1915 in New Orleans het "35 seuns van die skud byna hul arms afgeskud, maar kon steeds nie die aanvraag byhou nie", berig die skrywer Stanley Clisby Arthur in sy boek, "Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix. 'Em.'

Raai wat jy het wat Henry Ramos nie gehad het nie? 'N Blender, dis wat.

Die Ramos Gin Fizz is nie 'n bevrore drank nie, dus jy gebruik die blender om die regte konsekwentheid te kry, nie om dit in 'n Slurpee te verander nie. Die vuistreël by die bereiding van bevrore drankies is om soveel ys in die blender te gebruik as wat nodig is om die glas te vul, maar vir 'n drankie soos hierdie benodig jy net die helfte soveel. Hulle maak fantastiese brunchdrankies. Net fantasties.

Maak 2 drankies

  • 2 onse gin
  • 1 ons room
  • 1 rou eierwit
  • 1/2 ons eenvoudige stroop
  • 1/2 ons vars lemmetjiesap
  • 1/2 ons vars suurlemoensap
  • 2 strepies oranje blomwater
  • - Klubsoda
  • 2 halfwiele oranje, vir versiering

Instruksies: Meng alles in 'n blender, behalwe die koeksoda, met genoeg ys om een ​​Champagne -fluit te vul, en meng tot die ys pureer is. Verdeel die mengsel tussen twee Champagne -fluite en bedek elke drankie met 'n skeut koeksoda. Voeg die garnering by.

Lugvaart

Die lugvaart, wat die eerste keer in die negentien tienerjare beskryf is, het die afgelope paar jaar weer in die mode gekom. Toe dit die eerste keer die aandag van cocktail-kroegmanne trek, was dit onmoontlik om die oorspronklike te herskep, maar nou, aangesien creme de violette, 'n likeur wat vir baie jare in die Verenigde State nie beskikbaar was nie, weer op die toneel is, kan die drankie weer proe soos dit bedoel was om gemaak te word. En die Aviation is inderdaad 'n hoogdrawende cocktail.

Ek gebruik die bottel Rothman en Winter van creme de violette, hoewel daar dalk ander is wat ek nog nie gehoor het nie. Maraschino -wys ek is 'n fan van die Luxardo -handelsmerk - dit is baie geurig en trou inderdaad baie goed met 'n goeie gin. Ek hou van 'n eenvoudige, vurige jenewer as ek Aviation maak. Daar is eintlik 'n gin genaamd Aviation, wat hier goed werk. Andersins stel ek voor dat u met Beefeater, Junipero, Plymouth of Tanqueray gaan.

The Aviation is 'n goeie drankie om te bedien aan mense wat graag vir jou wil sê: "Ek hou nie van gin nie." Dit is geneig om baie beter te gaan as 'n klap in hul kop terwyl jy skree: "Wel, dit is tyd dat jy leer om daarvan te hou, jy ..."

Maak 1 drankie

  • 1 1/2 onse gin
  • 1/2 ons maraschino likeur
  • 1/2 gram crème de violette
  • 1/2 ons vars suurlemoensap

Instruksies: Meng al die bestanddele in 'n skudder. Voeg ys by. Skud en sif in 'n afgekoelde cocktailglas.

Daiquiri

Die daiquiri is 'n eenvoudige drankie, maar as dit sleg gemaak word, is dit 'n gruwel. Die meeste daiquiris wat by kroeë bedien word, is bevrore en waterig, en baie daarvan bevat produkte wat groen eerder as suurlemoen smaak, maar as jy 'n goeie daiquiri kan maak - en jy kan - sal jou gaste hulle verwonder oor die vrolike rommel wat in hul glase wanneer suiker, lemmetjiesap en 'n goeie rum saamkom om te speel. Die geheim is in die weegskaal, en dit is ook in die rum. Gebruik 'n goeie wit rum: Appleton is byvoorbeeld 'n uitstekende voorbeeld. As u op Bacardi aandring, gebruik Bacardi 8, nie die wit rum nie. Dit is 'n reël. Dit is in klip geskryf.

Maak 1 drankie

  • 2 gram ligte rum
  • 1 gram vars lemmetjiesap
  • 1/2 ons eenvoudige stroop
  • 1 suurlemoenskyfie, vir garnering

Instruksies: Meng al die bestanddele in 'n skudder. Voeg ys by. Skud en sif in 'n ysgevulde wynglas. Voeg die garnering by.

Margarita

Die margarita is waarskynlik die belangrikste drank om intiem te leer ken, want as u eers 'n margarita kan maak, kan u ook 'n syspan, 'n kamikaze, selfs 'n kosmopolita maak. Al vier hierdie klassieke het dieselfde hoofraam: drie dele drank, twee dele likeur met 'n lemoengeur en 'n deel vars suurlemoen- of suurlemoensap - met 'n skeut bosbessiesap vir die kosmos.

Ek neig na Cointreau as ek margaritas maak, hoewel ek soms ook Grand Marnier gebruik, en as dit die geval is, voeg ek gewoonlik 'n bietjie suurlemoensap by die drank om die relatiewe soetheid van die likeur te balanseer. Tequila-aanbeveel ek om by wit Tequila te bly, en probeer om 100 persent agave-bottels te gebruik as u wil hê dat die suiwer peperige plantaardige eienskappe van die gees moet skyn.

Maak 1 drankie

Instruksies: Meng al die bestanddele in 'n skudder. Voeg ys by. Skud en sif in 'n verkoelde skemerkelkie (sout) (opsioneel).

Strande

Dit is miskien nie die warm en sonnige soort waarvoor Suid -Kalifornië bekend is nie, maar daar is geen tekort aan strande in San Francisco nie. As u op soek is na 'n pragtige buiteluguitstappie waar u afstand kan hou, bied die strande van San Francisco asemrowende uitsigte, sowel as baie voetslaan, branderry, ontspan en meer.

Parke

Met meer as 220 parke en oop ruimtes, is die moontlikhede om die buitelewe in San Francisco te beleef eindeloos.

Vir 'n stad wat maklik is om te navigeer sonder 'n motor, word daar baie in San Francisco gery en gesit. Hier is ons uiteensetting van uitstekende openbare en privaat gholfbane, binne en buite die stadsgrense van San Francisco.

Stap

As u gereed is om verder te gaan as gewone staptoere en eintlik deur San Francisco en verder te stap, het ons opsies en ruimte vir almal. Een spesifieke opsie is die nuwe Crosstown Trail, wat u die geleentheid bied om te fiets, te stap en te hardloop op 'n roete van 17 myl wat skuins deur San Francisco kruis. Gaan deur sommige van die woonbuurte, parke en kulturele terreine wat hierdie stad besonders maak.


San Francisco: Prehistorie en stigting

Die eerste inwoners van die San Francisco -omgewing het omstreeks 3000 v.C. Teen die 16de eeu, toe die eerste Europeërs langs die kus van Kalifornië vaar (mis altyd die Golden Gate as gevolg van mis), is die gebied bewoon deur die Ohlone-sprekende Yelamu-stam. Die eerste westerlinge wat die baai gesien het, was lede van die Portola -ekspedisie in 1769. Sewe jaar later marsjeer Juan Bautiza de Anza noord van San Diego met 'n skikkingsparty om 'n Spaanse presidio en missie te stig. Teen 1808 was Mission San Francisco de Asis die middelpunt van geestelike en materiële lewe vir meer as 1000 neofiete wat uit plaaslike stamme afkomstig was.

Het jy geweet? In 1849 is die hawe van San Francisco en Aposs gevul met verlate skepe, waarvan die bemanning weg is om na die goudvelde te gaan. Baie van die vaartuie is gebruik as grondstowwe vir die uitbreiding van die stad en by aposs.

10 Great Cities for Older Singles

by Stacey Freed, AARP, January 14, 2021 | Kommentaar: 0

En español | You can find lots of lists of the best places to retire, often based on the quality of health care or low cost of living. But if you're single and over 50, you might also want to know which cities may boost your chances of finding a partner or just be more conducive to dating.

Places that offer older adults more opportunities to find someone to share a meal, snuggle up, take in the sites, go dancing, stroll or have a cocktail may rate higher for those who are single and looking to make connections. While some of these activities are on hold due to the pandemic, the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine makes their resumption imminent.

"In many cities, there may be a lot of people aging in place, but with no place to meet each other,” says Pepper Schwartz, a social psychologist, professor and host of Lifetime's Married at First Sight. “What you're looking for are cities or towns that have both population and opportunity.”

Ryan Frederick, founder of SmartLiving 360, a real estate development advisory firm that works with entities across the country and author of Right Place, Right Time: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Home for the Second Half of Your Life, to be published later this year, says a good way to find the places with opportunities is to “look for areas that are growing and follow the millennials and Gen Zers. Where they are is not a bad spot for older folks because they tend to live where the economy is growing, where the cost of living may be more reasonable."

Memorial Day Sale

Those younger generations are building families, starting companies and creating an optimism that tends to be infectious. But it's important to look beyond data, too — while the number of seniors concentrated in a particular city might mean a larger dating pool, a place where a high percentage of the overall population is older “might not be as dynamic,” Frederick says.

To spotlight some of these cities, we examined livability scores from AARP and the number of older adults living there, examined city sizes and locations, and took into consideration access to health care and amenities to satisfy the needs of those 50-plus. In this list, “adults” refers to people over 18 and “seniors” refers to people 65 and older.

Though this list is a good place to start, choices are based on individual interests and circumstances: Consider your own lifestyle and what you like to do in order to meet the kind of person you'd date. Do you prefer big city lights or the small-town life? Do you hike, run, bowl, knit, watch films? Keeping all that in mind, here are 10 great places for older singles (listed by highest to lowest senior population):

1. New York City, New York

Population: 6,677,140 adults 1,189,360 seniors

Possibly a cliché, but the amazingly diverse Big Apple truly has everything — walkability, public transportation, cultural venues, sports events, street festivals. “It's full of places to congregate,” Schwartz says, and “there is a culture of getting out and about rather than being in your apartment.”

AARP's Livability Score

This score rates the overall livability of a selected neighborhood, city, county or state on a scale from 0 to 100. It is based on the average score of seven livability categories — housing, neighborhood, transportation, environment, health, engagement and opportunity — which also range from 0 to 100. We score communities by comparing them to one another, so the average community gets a score of 50, while above-average communities score higher and below-average communities score lower.

And, according to AARP's livability index, New York ranks in the top 30 cities in the nation and “has 59 initiatives devoted to improving the living standards of its older residents” including initiatives to increase healthy and affordable housing options, the number of Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities, caregiver support and to improve transportation. There's also the Age-Friendly Neighborhoods Initiative with information on health services, cost of living, transportation options, as well as an interactive map of neighborhoods and what they offer.

2. Denver, Colorado

Population: 553,616 adults 78,751 seniors

Denver gets high marks in access to and quality of health care, preventive health care, as well as transportation. It also has 245 sunny days a year. The Mile High city is known as a place for those pursuing an active outdoor lifestyle, but there are plenty of museums, music venues (including a symphony), restaurants and opportunities to catch pro sports. There are also several suburbs known for their large number of retirees.

3. Austin, Texas

Population: 741,176 adults 81,322 seniors

"This is one of fastest growing places for younger people and also has one of the fastest growing 55-plus populations,” Frederick says. And, because it's both a state capital and a university town, “there's a vibrancy here.” There's no shortage of great restaurants, places to hike and bike, music venues and, of course, weirdness. (The city's slogan is “Keep Austin Weird.") Frederick adds that there are no state taxes, “and although there may be high real estate taxes, if you're renting you might not notice.” The city has an age-friendly action plan, as well as places for people to connect such as AustinUp.org.

4. The Villages, Florida

Population: 77,115 adults 61,889 seniors

The Villages is a master-planned age-restricted community. It's located in central Florida, about an hour north of Orlando. “There are a gazillion activities going on here 24-7. A thousand clubs — golf, volleyball, pickleball, painting rocks, a ukulele club … it seems like every village has a singles club,” says Christine Martin, 59, a software developer for a company in New Jersey, who moved to the Villages in March 2020. “Even during the pandemic there are things to do.” She met a great group of women friends in a singles group. She also joined a bowling league and met a guy who recently moved there, too. “He's handy and he helped me install cabinet hardware,” Martin says. “It's nothing serious, but who knows? . I wasn't looking for anything, and they say that's how it always happens.”

5. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Population: 257,595 adults 44,183 seniors

SeniorAdvice.com calls Pittsburgh a “notoriously senior-friendly town.” Located in Western Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh boasts affordable housing and plenty of museums, golf courses (125 of them), gyms, movie theaters, walkable neighborhoods, lots of great city parks and free public transit for older adults. There are myriad hiking and biking trails outside the city. And if you're looking for companionship (and more) there are several singles social groups for those 50 and over listed on meetup.com. (Meetup is an online service where groups can post in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests.)

6. Sun City, Arizona

Population: 39,952 adults 29,880 seniors

Technically, Sun City is not a city but a retirement community in Maricopa County (in the Phoenix metro area). But if you're looking to meet people who were old enough to stay up to watch the moon landing, then this is a good spot. There are a lot of outdoor activities in and around the 21 square miles of Sun City, where the sky is mostly clear year round and the temperature ranges from 43-106 degrees. Within the community, there's the singles social club, which schedules potlucks, game nights, billiards and golf get-togethers. There's bowling, jewelry-making and pickleball — every kind of club you can imagine.

7. Madison, Wisconsin

Population: 210,210 adults 28,516 seniors

Geld magazine recently named Madison the No. 1 place to retire in America. The college town, located between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, is not just affordable — it has bustling restaurants, great natural sights along the lake shore, an orchestra, contemporary art museum, cultural events and 38 retirement communities. The university allows residents over 60 to audit courses for free.

8. Arlington, Virginia

Population: 191,897 adults 24,465 seniors

Actually Arlington, Virginia, is a county and not a city — the smallest county by land size, about 26 square miles, in the United States. But what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in places to go and things to do. With Washington, D.C., in its backyard, Arlington has access to world class restaurants, theater, music, museums and sporting events. Travel by bus and Metro is easy. There's kayaking on the Potomac, biking on the C&O Canal towpath and through Rock Creek Park and hiking trails all around. There are dozens of meetup.com groups for people of every sexual orientation interested in everything from travel and camping to board games, religious activities, bowling, running, dancing, tennis, philosophy and more.

9. Springfield, Massachusetts

Population: 115,511 adults 18,992 seniors

Only 90 minutes from Boston and a half hour from Hartford, Connecticut, Springfield makes both U.S. News and World Report's lists of best places to live and to retire. There is cultural and university life, and the cost of living is relatively affordable compared to other East Coast metro areas. As in every city, meetup.com offers lots of opportunities for senior singles to connect.

10. Palm Springs, California

Population: 41,654 adults 14,790 seniors

Not just Palm Springs but “the whole Coachella Valley” is a great place for singles, Schwartz says. She cites the beautiful weather, lots of outdoor activities and places to go for dinner and drinks. “On Friday and Saturday nights a lot of people are out dancing at the Nest. It's hot.”

Located about a two-hour drive west of Los Angeles, Palm Springs is a great place to be active with its more than 100 golf courses and walking and hiking trails, as well as museums, street fairs, festivals and shopping.


Golden State Grub: The Best Things to Eat in California

Here are 30 of the Golden State's most-iconic foods — and the best places to try them.

California Cravings

California is home to a wealth of culinary traditions, thanks to the Golden State’s sunny climate, ocean access, diverse population and agricultural prowess. It may be impossible to try every edible wonder the state has to offer, but here’s a list of must-try dishes to get you started.

Avocado Toast

Californians are fiercely proud of their incredible avocados they've turned the creamy green fruit into an everlasting fad. Aside from the ubiquitous guacamole throughout the state, avocado shows up in everything from burgers to ice cream, but one of the most-popular ways to enjoy avocados is mashed high on top of toast. There are endless ways to modify avocado toast topped with caviar, feta, radishes and then some, but keeping it simple can be just as delicious. At Dinette in Los Angeles’ trendy Echo Park neighborhood, an order of avocado toast gets you a Texas-toast-size slice of rustic bread topped with a limey, fresh heap of crushed avocado seasoned with chile flakes, parsley and delicate snowflake-like flecks of salt. You’ll need a fork and knife to cut through this toast steak.

Cioppino

The waterfront city of San Francisco is a fount of classic seafood dishes, and cioppino is one of its most iconic. The fish stew is usually made with a collection of Pacific-caught fare, including any mix and match of squid, Dungeness crab, mussels, clams and white fish, with a tomato and wine sauce base. It’s only natural to order the Italian-American dish in North Beach, San Francisco’s Little Italy neighborhood, where the stew was supposedly invented. Grab a table at Ferry Plaza Seafood with views of Washington Square Park. The restaurant sources ingredients from vendors who practice environmentally sustainable fishing.

In-N-Out Double-Double

While In-N-Out may now exist in other states, it remains a cherished piece of California history dating back to 1948, when Harry Snyder opened the state’s first drive-thru burger stand. The Double-Double didn’t come around until the ‘60s (for a whopping 60 cents a burger), but it has become such an institution that it now rocks its own registered trademark. The hefty burger is made up of two American beef patties (free of additives, fillers and preservatives), two slices of American cheese, a slice of tomato, crisp lettuce and some Thousand Island-esque dressing called its “spread” on a freshly baked bun. Don’t forget an order of fries.

Vis Tacos

Californians are all about the fish taco, and sunny San Diego is a great place to find out why. The beach city has easy access to the Pacific’s bounty with the culinary influence of nearby Baja. It’s possible to eat fish tacos for every meal, but those with only time or room for one stop should head to Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill. Customers can choose from fresh, seasonal catches like red snapper, jumbo scallops and soft-shell crab to fill a massive, tasty fish taco.

Garlic Ice Cream

California grows about 90 percent of the country’s garlic, and Gilroy is at the heart of that production. Once you drive through Gilroy, you’ll understand why it’s dubbed the garlic capital of the world. The town is fragrant with the pungent allium. The city even hosts an annual garlic festival every summer to showcase its star crop. Garlic may usually fall into the savory foods category, but not in Gilroy. The ingredient gets its time to shine in dessert form as ice cream. Try the regional delicacy at Garlic City Cafe.

Adobada Tacos

Whether you’re staying in Fresno or just driving through, it’s mandatory to break for tacos. Fortunately, you don’t have to venture far to find a good taco in the 559. The city is teeming with incredible mom-and-pop taquerias like Chinatown legend La Elegante Taqueria. Seating here is limited, but the tacos are well worth the wait for a perch. Post up at the counter for the best view of La Elegante’s master cooks flipping tortas and tortillas on the griddle. Order a few different tacos, but don’t miss the adobada, a chile-braised pork. A horchata comes in handy to cool down the fiery spice.

Oysters

West Coast oysters are a little different from their East Coast counterparts. On the Pacific side, oysters tend to be a little sweeter and creamier, and there are countless places to get freshly shucked samples. Head north from San Francisco an hour to Marshall for oysters at one of their best sources, Tomales Bay. Hog Island Oyster Co. got its start in the oyster game back in the ‘80s and has been a Bay Area staple ever since. What began with a 5-acre lease has become a 160-acre oyster farm complete with a picnic area and an oyster bar for visitors.

Appeltert

It’s probably a good sign that the smell of apple pie wafts through your car in Santa Ysabel before you’ve even rolled down any windows. The tiny town is home to Julian Pie Company, a haven for apple pie enthusiasts and fans of good things in general. The family-owned operation started in 1986 when founder Liz Smothers began staking her claim in the pie business. Three years later, the family bought an apple farm and planted 17,000 trees to call their own. Today, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better apple pie. The most-popular is the crumb-top Dutch Apple, but the signature Original Apple amazes with its simple perfection. Don’t forget to order your slice a la mode.

Koreaanse braai

California boasts the largest population of Koreans in America, making it one of the best places outside Korea for Korean food. A traditional Korean barbecue feast — featuring colorful side dishes called "banchan" — will help start the meal with the most bang for your buck. At Hanjip in Culver City, Chef Chris Oh serves a menu that will satisfy various Korean cravings. Beyond barbecue, the seafood pancakes and gooey gochujang-glazed pork belly steam buns are excellent.

Fried Chicken Sandwich

Residents of Oakland are blessed with fantastic fried chicken options, including Bakesale Betty in Temescal. The tiny shop has amassed a cult following, which means there’s likely a line regardless of time of day. Fortunately that line moves quickly, thanks to the Bakesale Betty team’s efficient assembly line. Once you reach the register and get your hands on a chicken sandwich of your own — and a freshly baked cookie too — enjoy your well-earned lunch outside at a sidewalk table. The sandwich is worth the wait. The perfectly breaded chicken is both plump and juicy, with coleslaw balancing the fried flavor. Crisp cabbage, jalapeno, red onion, and parsley add spice and crunch.

Tri-Tip

California’s claim to barbecue fame comes from locals’ mastery of a lesser-known cut, tri-tip. A small but mighty muscle, tri-tip, also known as the Santa Maria steak, may be best enjoyed grilled to medium-rare and stuffed inside a French roll. This is just how you’ll find it at Firestone Grill in San Luis Obispo. The tri-tip sandwich works as a standalone meal, but it’s even better with a side basket of seasoned fries.

Cobb slaai

The cobb salad is a delicious compromise for people who don’t feel like eating a salad but still want to get in their leafy greens. Traditionally made up of lettuce, bacon, tomato, hard-boiled egg, avocado, cheese and red wine vinaigrette, the cobb may not be the healthiest salad, but it’s one of the heartiest the cobb's Los Angeles roots make it a California must-try. Fundamental LA is a quintessential Los Angeles lunch spot flooded with natural light and offering one of the best cobb salads in town. Dubbed the “Cobb,” Fundamental’s iteration of the classic California salad nixes the chicken but offers applewood-smoked bacon, balsamic vinaigrette, blue cheese and a mass of avocado. The restaurant is equipped with a stacked by-the-glass wine list, should you choose to imbibe over lunch or dinner.

Carnitas Burrito

Every Californian has his or her own idea of what city or taqueria makes the state’s best burrito. It would be impossible to dub one spot the best, but La Taqueria in San Francisco’s Mission District may have a pretty good shot at earning the most nods. In 2014, Anna Maria Barry-Jester and statistician Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight released a report on America's Best Burritos that named La Taqueria’s carnitas burrito number one after sampling 84 of the country’s best (based on a pool of 67,391). The Mission-style, foil-wrapped burrito excludes rice but includes plenty of shredded meat inside a chewy flour tortilla.

Clam Chowder

When the coastline is blanketed in the thick marine layer and the chilly seaside breeze rolls in, there may be no better respite than a bowl of clam chowder. Throw the chunky, hearty soup into a sourdough bread bowl, and you’ve got another California classic. San Francisco may be the most-obvious choice to dip into a bread bowl, but there are other coastal towns that excel at clam chowder. In Monterey, Old Fisherman’s Grotto sits right on the pier and serves some of the city’s best chowder. The beach and ocean views pair perfectly with the seafood comfort food.

French Dip

Don’t get thrown off by the name: The French Dip sandwich is an American classic that originated in sunny Los Angeles. The sandwich is simple: Thinly sliced roast beef is piled generously inside a French roll that has been dipped in beef jus from the meat-roasting process. Head to Philippe’s on the outskirts of Los Angeles’ Chinatown for a taste of history from the source. Legend has it that Philippe’s original owner, French immigrant Philippe Mathieu, invented the sandwich in 1918 by accident. What started off as a mistake has become an LA staple. Just like Philippe’s sandwich, the restaurant itself is simple but solid. Guests order from a long counter, and the food is served on no-frills paper plates. Don’t forget to use some of Philippe’s hot mustard — almost as famous as the dip — available on every table to add an extra kick.

Hangtown Fry

The Hangtown Fry is probably not going to be the most-delicious item on this list, but it is a California classic. The dish dates back to the Gold Rush, when fortune-seeking forty-niners were prospecting out West. Legend has it, as printed on the Buttercup Pantry menu, that one such prospector came into Placerville and ordered the kitchen to make him the most-expensive meal possible. The result was the Hangtown Fry, an egg scramble complete with oysters, bacon and onions. Buttercup Pantry adds melted cheese on top along with a disclaimer to eat the dish at your own risk, as some people enjoy it and others do not. Whether or not the unique blend of flavors suits your palate, you get a taste of history.

Cruffin

New York may dominate the hybrid-pastry craze, but San Francisco holds claim to the now-famous Cruffin, a mash-up of croissant and muffin filled with a creamy center. Mr. Holmes Bakehouse introduced the creation to the masses in 2014 and continues to draw lines out the door for the photogenic baked good. Line up early they sell out daily.

Xiaolongbao

California is lucky to have some of the best Chinese food outside of Shanghai, and the San Gabriel Valley is the epicenter of that good fortune. The San Gabriel Valley is nationally renowned for its abundance of high-quality, authentic Chinese food restaurants. SGV is a dim sum mecca, and it’s wise to make a pilgrimage to the Shanghai Dumpling House at least once in your life for excellent xiaolongbao, aka soup dumplings. Shanghai Dumpling House’s juicy dumplings have some of the thinnest skin in the business that require very delicate handling. You’ll enjoy the challenge.

Carne Asada Burrito

Yes, another burrito. You can’t eat around California and not get your hands on multiple burritos — it’s sacrilege. Slide into a booth aglow with colorful strings of lights at Casa Vega, a cavernous 60-year-old SoCal institution in Sherman Oaks. Here, feast on the restaurant’s mammoth carne asada burrito complete with chunky pico de gallo, fresh guacamole and refried beans. Getting your carne asada fix at Casa Vega also checks a box for another California tradition: celebrity spotting. It’s not uncommon to spot reality TV stars in the shadows of this low-key hideout.

Roomys

California’s artisanal ice cream market is very hot right now, but Santa Barbara-based McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams has been churning out a high-quality product since decades before the trend hit. The company got its start in 1949 and has been using local ingredients to make its 22 percent butterfat ice cream from scratch (and preservative-free) ever since. You can stick with old favorites, like Mint Chip and Vanilla Bean, or try something bursting with California flavors, like Eureka Lemon and Marionberries.

Santa Barbara Spot Prawns

Santa Barbara spot prawns have a special allure. Their availability is sporadic, but the prized seafood is worth the wait for the sweet shellfish, which are best fresh from the Pacific. Housed in a space built by Charlie Chaplin in the 1920s, Republique in Los Angeles is one of the most-beautiful places to find spot prawns on the menu. The cathedral-like restaurant changes the dish’s preparation seasonally, with creations like live Santa Barbara spot prawns with tomato, reed avocado, jalapeno and cilantro.

Grilled Corn

If you thought corn was a just a Midwest staple, think again. One of California’s most-cherished street food classics is Mexican grilled corn, or elote. Boiled or grilled corn on the cob gets slathered with butter, cheese, mayo, lemon or lime, and salt for the perfect combination of textures and flavors. Downtown LA’s B.S. Taqueria offers an elevated grilled corn using fresh, local ingredients and touches like guajillo chile butter. The taqueria uses another California must-try, Brentwood corn, when it’s in season.

Dungeness Crab

San Franciscans rejoice at the start of Dungeness crab season in April in a way similar to how the French welcome Beaujolais Nouveau in November. The West Coast-dwelling crab offers sweet meat people crave year-round. San Francisco seafood institution Farallon offers Dungeness crab seekers a unique under-the-sea-inspired dining experience unlike anything else. Giant jellyfish hang from the ceiling a spiral staircase is encrusted with shimmering caviar. With a focus on local produce and sustainably sourced seafood, Farallon is a choice spot to enjoy fresh Dungeness crab whether you get it in a platter or on toast.

Lemonade Ice Pop

California is a citrus capital, and the vitamin C-packed produce gets put to good use throughout the state. Up at about 1,200 feet of elevation, Angora Lakes Resort in South Lake Tahoe has been serving fresh-squeezed lemonade and lemonade ice pops, made from California lemons, since it opened in the 1920s. These lemonade pops are not easily obtained treats, as cars are not allowed to drive up the final stretch of winding mountain dirt road to reach the resort. Instead, you have to hike your way to try the famous icy treats. The pops — and experiencing the beauty of Angora Lake — are well worth the steep climb.

Maple Bar Doughnut

The maple bar, a rectangular Long John doughnut slathered with maple icing, is the West Coast’s claim to deep-fried breakfast fame. While the sweet delicacy can be found up and down the Pacific coast, Los Angeles is a serious doughnut hub, and the city is credited with changing the spelling from "doughnut" to "donut" in the 1920s. Step back in time by venturing to Downtown LA, where the architecture of the '20s still reigns. Located in downtown’s Historic Core, Downtown Donuts is where you want to go for your maple bar needs. There is nothing fancy about the small establishment, but there’s nothing fancy about a maple bar either. Take your slab of pillowy dough to go and explore the neighborhood.

Crispy Tacos

Crispy tacos are not what you’d call authentic Mexican fare. Nicknamed “Gabacho tacos,” they’re an Americanized taco variety whose popularity may have been proliferated by fast-food joints. Now a Mexican-American staple, the crispy taco can be found all over the country with its beef, shredded lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. Southern California is home to endless essential crispy taco spots, like Taco Fiesta in Los Angeles. About $4 will get you two hard-shelled beauties at this Highland Park haunt.

Fried Pizza

There aren’t many spots outside of Italy to find fried pizza, making A16 Rockridge’s Montanara pizza a must-try California food. Fried dough, with smoked tomato sauce, fior di latte mozzarella and basil, is served whole and piping hot right out of a wood-burning Stefano Ferrara oven from Italy. Diners at this Oakland restaurant are given a pair of pizza shears (basically pizza-specific scissors) to cut slices as ready, which keeps the pie hot as long as possible. The Montanara goes well with some housemade Calabrian chile oil don't forget a selection from owner and wine director Shelley Lindgren’s 23-page wine list.

Uni, or sea urchin, offers a true taste of the Pacific. On the outside, uni looks like an oceanic porcupine. Glowing orange inside, the sea urchin meat is a sea-salty delicacy worshiped around the world. At the Hungry Cat in Santa Barbara, chef and owner David Lentz serves sea urchin in a number of ways, including freshly opened with a garnish of a lemon, topping grilled bread and in ever-changing pasta specials.

Chicken and Waffles

The South gets a lot of love for its fried chicken, but few places in the world rival Los Angeles for chicken and waffles, specifically at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles. Founded by a New Yorker in South Los Angeles in 1975, it has become one of California’s most-beloved fried chicken destinations. The sweet and savory meal has attracted the attention of everyone from Hollywood stars who live nearby to dignitaries from around the world. After President Obama visited Roscoe’s for the three-wing Country Boy chicken-and-waffle combo, the restaurant renamed the plate Obama Special.
