The Detox Market began with Valerie Grandury, a breast cancer survivor looking to wipe her health slate clean with a vegan diet and non-toxic skincare. She found a partner in fellow toxin-free advocate, Romain Gaillard, who helped Valerie source additional natural products for her clientele. A pop-up shop of detox-inspired products on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach was born, a Beverly Hills outpost followed, and now San Franciscans in search of a “dream team of organic and natural products” can be found on Valencia Street.
ABBA fans, rejoice. The hit musical, where singing and dancing to favorites like "S.O.S" is encouraged, is back in town for a short two-week run. Time to let that inner dancing queen loose.
When: Tues. 2/21 - Sun. 3/4
Where: Orpheum Theatre, 1192 Market St.

Officially, today is George Washington's birthday, and an extra day off for many of us. Thanks, forefathers! However you're choosing to spend this rather gloomy Monday, perhaps mixing up a cocktail will make things a little bit sweeter? Try one of these Presidential-themed cocktails from our savvy pals at Liquor.com.
When I heard about U-Sushi, a new quick-service sushi spot on Market Street that uses "state-of-the-art robot automation" to make sushi-rolls to-order, I'd be lying if I said visions of R2-D2 squirting wasabi out of a tube didn't come to mind. Sadly, when I arrived for lunch on Friday, no Star Wars cast members were there to streamline my sushi experience, but the speed sushi operation was defininitely drawing a crowd.

Both men are originally from Lille, France, and now work in SF as industrial designers -- Sebastien at Ammunition Group and Aldric at One & Co. With their European heritage and product design talent, when it comes to dress, these boys are naturals.
Sing it with me: ”It’s the most / wonderful time / of the year…” Yes, Noise Pop is here to rescue San Francisco music fans from their winter hibernation (well, semi-hibernation). There are way too many shows to list here, and many are sold out, so we tried to focus on the shows that somehow haven’t sold out yet. For all of you who don’t have tickets to Flaming Lips, Sleigh Bells, Bob Mould, Wye Oak, Budos Band, et al, try appeasing your FOMO with these Noise Poppers:

California's deserts are definitely arid, but, beneath the soil? All sorts of sweet-smelling secrets ready to burst. We have several stretches around the Golden State that get their share of flowers come late winter. Beautiful Anza-Borrego is one such place.
