On Wednesday night, I made my way to State Bird Provisions, the quirky restaurant opened by married-couple Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski. The sliver of a space is located on the part of Fillmore Street not far from Yoshi's—the one the city is trying so hard to spruce up. Hapa Ramen is set to come in along here too.

Dear Parking Guru,
I'm currently parked on the street and another driver has blocked me in by parking right up against my bumper. Given the state of their now well bent license plate, it looks like the driver may have given my truck's tow hitch a hearty bump and then just left his car where it was, post impact, not trying to hide any evidence.

We got word of a new designer in town, a.anthony designs by Anna Anthony, and immediately fell in love with her Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook (photographed locally in the Presidio and at the Lyon St. Steps).
