It’s no secret that you can’t exactly have a pool day in San Francisco. You know, pool days, those days by the pool with a cold, adult beverage in hand, so hot that you can’t help but jump in the pool every so often to stay comfortable. Yeah, you can’t do that in San Francisco. However, that summer pool day you may be longing for isn’t too far away–it's just across Highway 101 in Sonoma County at Francis Ford Coppola Winery. That’s right, vino and pool time.

Copita is a new Mexican restaurant owned by Joanne Weir, who is kind of a big deal. You may recognize her from a number of things: culinary trips across the globe, TV cooking shows, an iPhone app, a wine label. She and co-owner Larry Mindel (of Poggio) were spurred into creating Copita after a competitve bout of margarita-making on his yacht. Now their baby is a full-blown, clay-tiled ode to Mexico City, turning chickens seasoned with chile guajillo in a huge rotisserie—a notable change of pace amidst the burger and Italian joints of Sausalito.
The San Francisco-based startup GoPago is at it again. The company’s free mobile app–which as some know, just launched in S.F. in partnership with Chase—lets you order and pay for everything from coffee to burgers straight from your smartphone. You get to skip lines at local hot spots like Freshii, Moz, Tropisueno and Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, because your order is ready and waiting when you arrive.
