* San Francisco Chronicle (Matier & Ross):
Niners gala: The 49ers' traditional red and gold colors gave way to black tie Saturday night, with a gala at the new Levi's Stadium that featured John Legend performing on the 50-yard line.
The thousands of invited revelers were wined and dined with a menu that featured everything from sushi to sliders.
And no windy speeches.
Estimated cost to the team: $375 per person.
"It was spectacular," Santa Clara County Assessor Larry Stone said Tuesday as he wrote out a $310 check to cover the gift limit amount he exceeded by bringing his wife.
