This Week's Hottest Events: Sea Foraged Dinner, Hitchcock Fest, and Urban Air Market

Dinner Date

Kirk Lombard 

Smelt, razor clams, halibut, monkey faced eel—you never quite know what you're going to get when local sea forager Kirk Lombard comes back with a catch. Expect sea lore, singing, and a plate full of potentially weird delicacies when you sit down at the table.

Sneak Peek: New SFMOMA MuseumStore

Waiting three years for SFMOMA to reopen will be hard enough, but going that long without my go-to art and design store would mean an uninspired holiday season (the MuseumStore has been my one-stop-shop for gifts three years running now). In the spirit of great pop-ups, SFMOMA has made a temporary home for its shop on Yerba Buena Lane in the old Museum of Craft and Folk Art space across from the Contemporary Jewish Museum. The store, which opened on August 7, was designed to evoke memories of the old space. Think gray- and black-striped columns (a nod to the old museum's atrium), reused wood and materials from the original store, and sustainable bamboo and cork.

Q&A with Bay Area Artist Ala Ebtekar

Bay Area artist Ala Ebtekar is having a moment. His work is currently on view in two regional shows: part one (What Time Is It There?) of the three-part "Proximities" series at the Asian Art Museum and "Migrating Identities" at YBCA, a group show in which he's the only local artist. He's been garnering attention on both the national and international art scenes, and his work has most recently been added to the collections of an SFMOMA board member and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Talk about street cred.
