Four Barrel Coffee

This Week in Fashion: Shotwell Says Goodbye, McIntoshFry at MAC, Retrofit Turns 1 + Styling the Modern Man

1. Last Tuesday, Holly and Michael Weaver, the style powerhouse behind Shotwell, announced some very happy and very sad news. The darling duo is expecting a baby boy (that's the good news!), and will be moving back to Pittsburgh. That means, Shotwell will not be reopening -- a great loss for SF. As bummed as we are to see them go, we wish the three of them (four including their pup, Friday) all the best.

If New York has the LES, then San Francisco has the LESMD

The Lower East Side of the Mission District (this would be East 24th Street) is blossoming. I’m sure the gentrification whistle blowers are up in arms, but personally I love it when a neighborhood starts mixing it up. (And my money is on the fact that the whistle blowers are the exact hipsters that frequent Pops, anyhow.) Stagnancy is not what thriving cities are made of: Sushi, tortas and gourmet donuts located within a one block radius are.
