Matthew Palladino and More at Sketch Tuesday

Headed over to 111 Minna last night for Sketch Tuesday. Rumors floated that Jason Jagel might be there, but he didn't materialize (as far as I know). What was amazing though was Matthew Palladino's single fluid depiction of several bodies in a tumbling pyramid heap. Behold the magic for yourself.


Ted Lincoln, whose solo show opens this Thursday, April 02 at 111 Minna and Matthew Palladino.

Valentino Chronicles a Fashionista's Farewell

Who is Valentino Garavani? To those who know fashion, the answer is obvious: He is the legendary Italian designer behind the Valentino line of hand-stitched dresses favored by two generations of the celebrity elite, from Jackie Onassis to Jennifer Lopez.

Fashion Don'ts on Display at the San Francisco Public Library

We may be serious about fashion, but there’s at least one place in San Francisco where we’re more than happy to embrace fashion that’s a total joke. House of Nat: Fashion Tips from the Schmulowitz Collection of Wit and Humor, opening today in the San Francisco Public Library Skylight Gallery, pokes fun at fashion through the ages with artwork, photography and ephemera displaying the ha-ha-funny side of haute couture.

This Week's Top Food Events: Magic Curry Kart, Cowgirl Creamery and Pisco Tasting

Manioc Maniac
Slow Food San Francisco will be screening “Mr. Bene Goes To Italy” on Saturday, April 4 at the Delancey Street Theatre. The film, a favorite of Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini, follows the journey of Benedito Batista da Silva, an authority on manioc flour production in the Brazilian Pará State (leave it to Slow Food to find something obscure!). The screening is followed by a reception; tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.

What An East Coaster Needs To Know About SF Food

My brother was visiting from Boston last weekend and so I did what I often do—took him to a good cross-section of places the likes of which he doesn't have access to back East. Historically that roster of restaurants has included La Taqueria (because, I don't care what they say, Anna's Taqueria can't hold a candle), Chez Panisse and something in the Ferry Building, often Hog Island Oyster Co. It's always fun to watch someone experience a place you love for the first time, especially if, like my brother, they're good eaters. This time around I brought him to Beretta and as we poured over the cocktail list the divide between Boston and San Francisco widened.

SF's Top Chocolatier Gets Comfortable

A box from Recchiuti Confections landed on my desk this morning. You know when it's Recchiuti—who I'd deem one of the best chocolatiers in the country—it's going to be something exciting, something refined, something special. But before I even opened the box, I did a little envisioning: Please don't be truffles! Please don't be some fancy chocolate Easter egg!

Ali Hewson of Edun's Fillmore Pop Up Shop: "Buy Less But Buy Well"

Last week’s opening night for Edun’s Pop-Up Shop at Clary Sage Organics in Pacific Heights was a huge success - the store was filled to the brim with Bay Area fashion aficionados sipping on wine and sampling eco-conscious skin care products while taking turns trying on Edun’s new Spring Line.
