House of Cards met the House of Dior at the Legion of Honor on Friday night when actress Kata Mara showed up at the Mid-Winter Gala wearing a strapless tea length dress from the legendary couture house's fall 2013 haute couture collection.
Earlier this year, we introduced you to seven local leaders who are shaking things up in the fields of education, sustainability, and community development. Inspired by their contributions, we collaborated with the University of Oregon to launch the Vanguard Award, dedicated to shedding light on community members who are revolutionizing the status quo.
In early March, you nominated hundreds of gamechanging locals who are working to make the Bay Area a better place and deserve to win the Vanguard Award. We've narrowed down the field to seven finalists, and now it's time to determine the winner.

Longer daylight hours have us dreaming of packing the car, tuning up a few playlists, and hitting Highway 1. Join us and make your way to Portland, Oregon, where in between all the food carts and awesome craft beer, you can check out the natural beauty that the city and the Columbia River Gorge have on tap. Just be sure to pack your camera — this is one for the books.

San Francisco is drunk on fernet, and many of us have decided to give it up for good. Like Burning Man or bone broth, there's no quicker way to lose your taste for something than to be oversaturated with the evangelizing of others. But please, take a moment and set aside any bitter memories resulting from having had one too many (ok, five too many) at R Bar. Like other controversial statement items that are enjoying a resurgence (hello mustaches and high-waisted jeans), fernet is having a moment in the sun—and for good reason.
