The Wedding Proposal That Was A Piece of Cake

The night Elizabeth Lorini and Nara Youn met, he fell asleep while watching movies in her dorm room with a group of friends and she filled his long hair with rows and rows of tiny braids. She was sure he’d be angry, but he wasn’t. He was back the next day (presumably after combing his hair).

When Lucky Strike opens in SoMa this weekend, it may be the first time the words “stylish” and “bowling alley” are used in the same sentence. But this chic entertainment spot at 200 King St. is not your typical 10-pin, sweaty-shoe rental, 1950s artifact.

Seven Favorite Things: Welcome Stranger & Azalea Menswear

What started out years ago as co-owners Catherine Chow and Corina Nurimba's baby, Azalea is now part one of a local fashion trifecta. Last year, Welcome Stranger and Rand + Statler rounded out the mix, offering a 100% menswear outpost and a higher-end niche, respectively. While the Hayes Valley brick and mortars are each their charming own (full of ripe, full-flavor brands, anchored by a wealth of denim), online, select goods from each boutique are available through Azalea's e-store.

Last May, Welcome Stranger, became the first of the three to launch a house brand that's produced right here in San Francisco. Among our favorites this week were three items from Welcome Stranger's in-house line (#2, #3, #6), and a pair of everyday Zig Zag chukkas (#1), going fast at $20 a pair.
