Oh, Say Can You See: Robert Frank’s ‘Americans’ Revisited At SFMOMA

The crowd-pleasing art superstars may be holding court one floor up - at “Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams: Natural Affinities,” opening Saturday, May 30 - but before you wander O’Keeffe’s pink and orange abstractions of the Southwestern desertscape and Adams’ iconic prints, dare to stop in at “Looking In: Robert Frank’s The Americans,” on display at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art through Aug. 23.

Meet Andrew Christian (a.k.a. “The Panty-Christ”) from BRAVO’s "The Fashion Show"

From butt-lifting boxers to “frontal-enhancement” briefs that pack an extra inch onto the male unit, Andrew Christian has been making guys proud of their packages for over a decade. Lately, the L.A.-based designer who launched his first collection in 1997 has had plenty of his own reasons to be proud. Nicknamed “The Panty-Christ,” Christian ventured outside of underwear to debut menswear line Black by Andrew Christian last fall and has a women’s line in the works.

Mark Morris' "L'Allegro" at Zellerbach

If you’re even remotely interested in modern dance, there’s only one place to be this weekend: at Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley, watching the Mark Morris Dance Group perform Morris’ two-and-a-half-hour masterwork, L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato.

Discover Vino Siciliano with the Tablehopper

Our friend the Tablehopper, AKA Marcia Gagliardi, asked me to pass along this notice of her upcoming wine tasting and class. The focus is the wines of Sicily, which are well worth knowing about. Sicily is a vast land will all kinds of different terroirs, from the hot and dry to the cool, lava-dominated soils of the still-active Mt Etna. As in California, all kinds of wines come from Sicily, from the most humdrum of bulk wines to some the most unique and intriguing wines in the world.

Another High-Flying Triumph for Pixar

It hardly seems necessary to point out, as I and countless others have before, Pixar’s well-earned reputation for crafting animated tales that transcend the supposed limitations of the genre, populating aesthetically rich universes with characters who often seem more memorably human than those in live-action fantasies. But it’s still worth noting.

Oh, Gavin! Elle Magazine "Willingly Surrenders" to SF's "Caped Crusader"

The June issue of Elle magazine just came out with a feature article about “Mayor McHottie,” as SF- and Grotto-based author Diana Kapp calls Gavin Newsom. “The Hottest Prospect” might not tell locals anything they don’t already know, but it’s clearly a hand-to-forehead homage to our city’s “caped national crusader for same sex marriage.” Although Kapp goes into Newsom’s run for governor in 2010 (against Attorney General Jerry Brown)—which he announced on April 21 via Twitter—she starts out with a few breathless ringers. You just know somehow that she's dying to (try) to run her hands through his L'Oreal Total Control Clean Gel'ed hair:

Tough guys, hard-bitten dames, willing dupes and creatures of the night skulking that grey zone between good and evil - rejoice! Roxie Theater has extended its film noir fest, “I Wake Up Dreaming: The Haunted World of the B Film Noir,” through June 3 - for all you retro film heads, vintage Joes and B&W Betties caught up in one too many grifts to find the time to check out the event’s many gifts to obscure B-grade cinema.

Look of the Week: Lux for Less

The end of spring is rapidly approaching, and with it comes one of our favorite fashion 'holidays': the end-of-season sale. Since we've never been ones to shell out exorbitant amounts of money on the latest trends off the Parisian runway (okay, it might also be due to lack of funds), designer sales allow us to shop like a socialite and stock up on high quality pieces that will stay in our wardrobe indefinitely. We've been scouring the shops all week for this season's most noteworthy finds. So without further ado, here are our top five picks:
