Editor at Large: Big Love, Sexy Chefs, and Alexander Skarsgard

I have a seriously cool job. As editor of 7x7, I get a daily insider look at what makes the Bay Area so fab—I receive the best invitations, eat the most delicious food, and meet the city’s most inspiring people. I want to take every chance I get to thank those who spark my curiosity and tickle my fancy—and to share it all with you. Thus, this new regular(ish) blog, “Editor at Large,” where I’ll take you along on my adventures in the Bay Area and beyond. I’ll give you just the good stuff, and forget the rest.

Mulberry, the Brit luxury goods purveyor that opened its San Francisco flagship on Grant Avenue in June 2012, has quickly earned a rep as one of the tony street's most whimsical retailers, hosting fanciful displays in its third-floor gallery on the regular.

Get Into "Glamping" with SF-Based Shelter Co.

It is safe to say that a slang word becomes a thing when you throw it out there and everybody gets it—see “staycation.” Like “fashionista” and “upcycling” before it, “glamping” has arrived, as they say in Hollywood, darlings.

Launched in April, Shelter Co. is the silver-spoon baby of Kelsey and Mike Sheofosky, a husband-wife team who have a very urbane take on a dirty pastime. We believe you call it “camping.”

I have heard it said that San Francisco is “the land of fruits, nuts, and veggies.” And we like it that way, thank you very much. In a city that supports a live-and-let-live ethos, San Franciscans don’t just tolerate—we celebrate—diversity and forward thinking. Here, we are pioneers in sustainable living, technology, and culinary innovation. Women have prominent spots in politics and in business. We support medical marijuana and provide safe escort for naked cyclists. Many of our charities are even bolstered by fierce drag queen nuns.

A Sugared-Up Tour of Paris with Pastry Chef Yigit Pura

If you’ve never witnessed a man make love to a tart of the pastry variety, then you have never met Yigit Pura or seen the ecstatic flutter of his chestnut eyelashes and the pursing of his full Turkish lips as he takes a deep bite from a Chantilly-filled St. Honoré cake to the sidelong glance of a scandalized Frenchwoman down the row on the Paris metro.

The $180,000 Del Popolo Pizza Food Truck

The $180,000 Del Popolo Pizza Food Truck

There’s only one possible reaction upon first seeing Jon Darsky’s pizza truck: Whoa. Hitched to a mighty rig that weighs 14 tons, Del Popolo begins serving Neapolitan pies this spring from its 5,000-pound oven. This much muscle comes at a cost—over $180,000 in all. The good news: Del Popolo is inimitable. “You’d have to be a fool to try and copy it,” says Darsky. “This thing was f*cking expensive.” Here, a few of the highlights.
