If you’re an egomaniacal super genius with an affinity for all sorts of high tech gadgets and looking to build a new app, what’s your next step? Why, move to San Francisco, of course. Marvel Comics announced this week at San Diego Comic-Con that Tony Stark, “the cool exec with a heart of steel,” aka Iron Man, is vacating Manhattan and setting up new digs in SF to build an app for his Extremis armor.
When you watch reality TV, do you not so secretly think of your favorite persona, “If we met, we would become best friends! I just know it!”? Well, that’s just creepy. Contain yourself. But, if you’re a regular watcher of popular (and grounded) reality programs like Bravo’s Top Chef, consider sidling up to past fan favorites from the show while on a vacation. A cruise vacation.
Weekly vignettes looking at life on San Francisco's second-favorite transportation system.
After a surprisingly outsize showing for their Nic Cage art show in April (an estimated 1,600 people lined up outside the Mission’s Balançoire for the chance to mingle, peruse, and buy works of art by fans of the actor), San Francisco–based husband-and-wife team Ezra and Julia Croft have set their sights on celebrating Wes Anderson muse Bill Murray for their next event.
Local clothing manufacturer BetaBrand—home of the cordaround and metallic tracksuits, the latter a favorite among burners trying to discover themselves at Black Rock—workshops many of its new designs by throwing them on BetaBrand.com under the ThinkTank feature. A recent success of this Kickstarterish platform is a new line of Gay Jeans. Allow us to explain.
Welcome to the first installment of our biweekly vignettes looking at life on San Francisco's second-favorite transportation system.
As you leave the Castro Farmers Market each Wednesday with a reusable bag stuffed with the freshest seasonal produce (did everyone stock up on stone fruit this week?), you might have noticed a handmade kiosk about yay high reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt.
After your plane has landed, you’ve checked in to your hotel, and had a day or two to decompress by the pool with the requisite Mai Tai, it’s time to start exploring the island. Hawaii has plenty of natural wonders to discover (Waterfalls! Hidden swimming holes! Hot lava!). There are also plenty of ways to explore the flora and fauna and get a little education while you’re at it. These three tours promise to be, ahem, infarmative.
