7x7 is looking for someone who dreams of carnitas, snubs the steamer, finds themselves at El Farolito for a super carne asada at 10 am and back again at 4 in the morning, knows everyone by name at Cancun and thinks SoCal burritos are for losers. We're looking for someone that uses the word slab, has special foil unpeeling techniques and has created personal Excel file ranking their favorite burritos in the city. We want someone who thinks they can name a burrito with their eyes closed.
The chosen burrito expert will be called upon to be on a panel of five esteemed judges—including two of SF's best chefs—for a 7x7 burrito-off and photo shoot, which will run in our February food issue.
Sporting a pig snout and coke bottle Dr. Magoo glasses, theater artist Cynthia Hopkins plays the accordion and sings poignantly about loss and mortality on micro- and macrocosmic levels. An intergalactic space epic marked by immersive videoscapes, song, and text, The Success of Failure blends silver spacesuit-clad sci-fi and the random happenstance of the universe (if the dinosaurs hadn't been wiped out, we would be breathing through gills right now) with the deeply personal - addiction, the loss of her mother, and her dying father.
Do not pass Go, do not collect $100, and head directly to this season's THREAD event at the Metreon for rad, fashionable gifts for all the people on your holiday shopping list (and maybe pick up a few things for yourself, too). It's a sprawling showcase of the best emerging, style-breaking, genre-bending fashion designers, coupled with the music and art that inspires them. So leave the mall in the dust, grab a cocktail at THREAD's martini lounge and get browsing.
One glance at our calendar made something very clear, there's much too much happening this week to keep it all to ourselves. So strap on your walking heels and get ready for some serious holiday shopping:
Tiffany & Co. Leather Collection Open House, Tues. from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., 350 Post St., Free: Hurry down to Tiffany's this morning for the chance to meet leather gurus Richard Lambertson and John Truex and check out their new leather collection for the iconic label.
The words "seeking adult males with strength and athletic ability," read more like a porn audition, male model call, or kinky personal ad than they do of a press release from the SF Opera, but hey, it caught our attention. And now it's got yours. It's so good we just had to repeat it for you, word by word:
We here at 7x7 found ourselves so inspired by The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game (Chronicle Books), that we decided to continue the game online. Starting Dec. 1, we'll post a drawing from the book done by a local artist—one each Wednesday. Get your pens and paints ready because we're asking you to "respond" to each drawing with your own creation. Every week, we'll pick our favorite drawing and give the contributor $150 in local gift certificates. Then, at the end of December, we'll choose the best from the weekly winners.
