The one place in our loft apartment we have been unable to adequately light is above the dining table. This pendant would finally solve that issue! Our quest for dinner lighting is actually getting to be a fire hazard, as the only way we have found to properly light a meal is to cover the table in beautiful but dangerous candles of all varying shapes and sizes. Our landlord would be very grateful if we won this light, as would we, since it would be the centerpiece of our open space and would allow all our hard work in the kitchen to not be lost amid the darkened atmosphere that is a dimly lit dining table. Thank you!

As a one-time New Yorker, and current SF resident, I just want to say San Francisco is fantastic. It's a much smaller city than New York, and though it does have a greater metro area, if you are looking to be in the city, you will be struck by how much smaller it is than New York. It is commonplace to run into people you know multiple times a day. But you'll also be struck by how calm and pretty and not gritty even the grittiest parts are compared with NYC.

Dog Patch! Right at the base of Potrero Hill, along the bay, convenient to the nightowl T Muni line, the 22 and 48 busses, SOMA, the design center of SF, and all that the new UCSF campus offers, the DP is an up and coming neighborhood and is completely animal friendly. Beautiful Esprit Park is technically for humans but is almost always overtaken by happy dogs frolicking with their owners. I live there and there are tons of dogs in the neighborhood and plenty of older, classic SF buildings with backyards, as well as lofts that offer the extra space that perhaps your friends are used to but which is hard to come by in the city. Also, since the neighborhood hasn't completely blown up yet (though it's on its way) you can still get a big apartment for the same price as a tiny one in, say, the Duboce Triangle. Not as cheap as the Richmond or Inner Sunset perhaps, but way cooler and closer to downtown, which is a plus if your friends will be working there and ever want to come home on their lunch breaks to let the dog out, etc.

We got an awesome one from CB2 that is bright orange (they call it lobster). Might be a tad taller than you are looking for, but you could look there and see if they have anything else. Their store downtown is semi-convenient and you can buy floors models.
