This isn’t necessarily new news, but now we can’t say we didn’t know any better. On October 22, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch will be releasing its latest pocket guide, the aptly titled “Seafood Watch Sushi Pocket Guide,” which will tell us what species we can eat occasionally, which ones we should never eat and those we ought to try to convince restaurants (sushi and otherwise) to never serve again. You can order it here (it’s free).
Back to the Garden: It's the final shopping days (through Oct. 20) at Azalea Boutique (411 Hayes St.) for pieces from EDUN, the hip and rock-star glam clothing line launched in 2005 by Bono, his wife, Ali Hewson, and designer Rogan Gregory.
Led by Leigh Matthes, fashionistas have already been poring over racks of this fabulous Fall 2008 collection titled Nocturne, which features sumptuous knits, silks, jeans and Ts in rich, gorgeous hues of plum, black and aubergine. Yummy!
“I bought two cauliflowers at the farmers’ market today. It cost me $4.20. I could have fed 10 to 20 people with them. You just need to know how to cook.”
Taking this into consideration, I called up a few people that know how to cook to ask their opinion. Although more than one alluded to the fact that the idea of feeding 20 people with two (hopefully large) heads of cauliflower might be best applied in a third world country, I did get some creative—if hopeful—answers.

You probably haven’t heard of him—yet. But we’re convinced Christopher Collins will be a designer to watch in SF’s growing fashion circle. On Tuesday, Collins presented his sophomore Spring 2009 collection before a packed invite-only crowd at Deep Down Sound in SoMa. Co-produced by Elise Friedman, Phoebe Rubin, Rachel Esterline and Julianne Moeller, the energetic shindig attracted a smattering of social butterflies, fashiony hipsters and curious media, who gathered for a flash of fashion and post-work mingling over sushi, cupcakes and glasses of sparkling rosé.
