The company’s free mobile app–which just launched in S.F. in partnership with Chase—lets you order and pay for everything from coffee to burgers straight from your smartphone. You get to skip lines at local spots like Freshii and Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, because your order is ready and waiting when you arrive.
As you may have heard, SF Chefs 2012 is back with a vengeance – and in particular with the all new, limited seating, Dinner Party Project. Throughout June and July, top chefs from the Bay Area are pairing up with their closest chef-buddies (some have called them brothers, sisters, best friends, partners in crime…) for an exclusive, one night only thematic dinner. Tickets are on sale and extremely limited, so snag your seat at their table before they’re gone!
Next time you're craving a bite to eat for lunch, whether you're in Nob Hill, Union Square, Financial District, Russian Hill, the Embarcadero, Marina or Chinatown, stay in the center of the action and stop by Parallel 37, the scrumptious new restaurant and lounge helmed by renowned Chef Ron Siegel, inside The Ritz-Carlton. He creates simple, approachable, and most importantly of all, delicious food to match the eatery's modern and sophisticated environment.
We're all for spending a day lounging in Dolores Park, cold beer in hand. But we're also in favor of spicing all that park action up with an epic day of catwalking and dog costume-gazing at our second annual Whole Enchihuahua! We've partnered with the SF SPCA to throw this awesome pet contest–all dogs are welcome–from noon to 4 pm meant to raise awareness about the plight of chihuahuas (they're the breed most given up to shelters).
You may have seen the ad that we’ve had running on 7x7.com for the past few weeks. You may even have written us an irate email or two about running ads for puppy sales. Those of you who did are in the loop about the fact that if you buy a dog online, it is most likely coming from a puppy mill. Those of you who haven’t been in the loop yet, don’t feel sheepish - it turns out that most people don’t know that. But now, you do know. So what do you do?
It's time for a fresh visit to the California Academy of Sciences to celebrate the opening of Earthquake, their brand new exhibit and planetarium show, and party like it's 1906 again with their Earthquake Premiere Party.

As you might have noticed, we're pretty excited over here that the symbol of our city, the Golden Gate Bridge, is turning 75 this year. The biggest mover and shaker behind the city's celebrations is Wells Fargo, the historical sponsor of the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary. They've just launched a cool new site called "Built in the Bay", which showcases photos, videos and stories about the Bay Area from our community. It's their unique way of celebrating our iconic and beloved global landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge.
If you haven’t heard the buzz, Healdsburg’s Jordan Vineyard & Winery has been celebrating its 40th anniversary in star-studded style at rooftop lounges across the country.

The best chefs in San Francisco are getting together for dinner, and you’re invited. SF Chefs, in partnership with 7x7, Campari, and KCBS, has created The Dinner Party Project — a dinner series showcasing the longtime friendships between some the city’s best chefs. Chef friends will collaborate to create once-in-a-lifetime meals, sharing with diners a unique glimpse into their friendships, cooking styles and culinary visions. Each dinner will begin with a handcrafted Campari aperitif. The series will benefit the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture.
