Nick Hoppe Columns
 




Nick Hoppe's columns 
appear every Tuesday in the San Francisco Chronicle on the back page of the Datebook Section.

His topics include business columns relating to the common absurdities of owning a business (he owns restaurants and retail stores throughout  California), general lifestyle columns, and travel columns.
But no matter what he is writing about, rest assured that he is not taking it too seriously.
