Seven Favorite Things: Unionmade Goods

When it comes to local menswear, Unionmade Goods is pretty much aces. Their collection is always so varied, yet tightly curated, and huge. That said, it was particularly difficult narrowing down this list to a mere seven, but I will say my single favorite item from the current collection is definitely Alden of San Francisco's beatifully lush dark suede chukkas (#1) -- and this is coming from a not-huge-chukka-fan. The double zip wallet from Japanese retailer, Beams+ (#6), is another a fantastic design that will slip easily into your front or back pocket, and would be a killer accessory for women, too. In fact, ladies, if you're looking for a Valentine's gift, make Unionmade your go-to and, while you're there, don't overlook picking up something for yourself at this fine (menswear) establishment.

Secret Recipe: Grilled Pizza from Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

Secret Recipe: Grilled Pizza from Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about, email lauren@7x7.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.

Chef Tony Gemignani of Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in North Beach is known for his flavorful, chewy crust. It's even won him the World Pizza Cup in Naples. He bakes his pies in a coal-fired oven to give them a slight char. To get a similar slice at home, he's concocted an easy pizza dough to top with whatever you desire and then cook on an outdoor grill.

1 package (2 ¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast

¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon lukewarm water 

¼ cup rye flour

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for oiling the bowl

What to Eat: Chinese New Year Parade Day

What to Eat: Chinese New Year Parade Day

Did you know San Francisco's Chinese New Year Parade is "the largest celebration of Asian culture outside of Asia"? Well that's what its handy website is saying. Superlative statements aside, it's always fun to hit the streets for glimpses of the 250 foot Golden Dragon and Miss Chinatown U.S.A.—in doses. This year, we'll be there, but not without several "breaks" for respite from the jam-packed street, a drink, or a delicious bite along the way. Make the parade your excuse to follow our crowd-dodging itinerary.
