24 Gorgeous Hours in Tahoe (Winter Storm Be Damned)

On Friday night, as we sat gridlocked for an hour at the chain control checkpoint on Highway 80 just 15 miles outside of Tahoe, the snow and ice taunting our increasingly useless windshield wipers, we predicted a sad and skiless weekend. But, as we do, we made the most of it. Should you get stuck in Tahoe in a winter storm, find some fun by taking a walk in our (snow)shoes.

Get Dressed Like FLOTUS at Maria Pinto's M2057 Pop-Up Shop in SF This Week

Despite the city’s signature chill, spring was in the air on Tuesday evening when 7x7 editors arrived at Market Street’s Digital Garage to meet fashion designer Maria Pinto, whose weeklong pop-up shop for her M2057 line has injected the space next door to Super Duper Burger with a super dose of individualist chic.

At Leo’s Oyster Bar, It’s Life Through Champagne-Colored Glasses

The first thing one notices when entering Leo’s Oyster Bar (besides the massive palm fronds that unfurl across the pastel tropical wallpaper covering the restaurant’s soaring atrium) is the glow.

Welcome to the World of Organic Farm-to-Front-Door Cannabis

It’s a mellow Friday afternoon in the rugged hills of Oakland. Water trickles in the koi pond on a tree-shaded deck, and a Wheaten terrier chills at our feet. Could this day get any better? Well, there are also six grams of organic cannabis, fresh from a farm in the Emerald Triangle, en route via courier to our front door. An email confirmation says, “We hope it puts a smile on your face.”

Margaret Cho, Yigit Pura + More Reflect on Marriage Equality #LoveWins

When former mayor Gavin Newsom began marrying LGBT couples at City Hall back in 2004, he ignited the American movement for marriage equality. Today, the U.S. Supreme Court validated the right for all couples, across the nation, to marry the one they love. 7x7 caught up with San Francisco's leaders in the gay community to reflect on this momentous day for civil rights.

A Modern Guide to the Castro

Along with the recent $4.5 million Castro Street makeover—which brought broader sidewalks, rainbow crosswalks, and bronze plaques honoring LGBT heroes—has come a neighborhood renaissance of sorts, with an influx of artisan coffee shops, retail, and restaurants that cater to foodies. 

Laverne Cox to Appear Both Live and in Wax at Madame Tussauds on Friday

Laverne Cox is many things: A trailblazer for transgender equality. An Emmy-nominated star in everyone's favorite lesbian jailbird TV show. A must-follow blogger. And at long last, a wax figure, to be unveiled this week at Madame Tussauds on Fisherman Wharf.

Holy Crap, This 3D Printing Robot Is Insane

Robots have at last made their way into mainstream American life. Or into Bay Area life, anyway, where drones hover above Dolores Park and deliver OTC drugs to your house. Whatever. But this robot...this robot...is something else. This robot can 3D print an honest-to-goodness bridge.

City Staycation: A Gay Ole Time in The Castro

For all its longtime neighborhood shortcomings—take, for example, poor taste (the area's small businesses have names like Hand Job, Slurp, and Spunk) and a serious lack of real food—the Castro is celebrating a new day under the rainbow.
