God bless the great state of California. We can take any ethnic food and add our oh-so-typical thumbprint to it. Enter the breakfast burrito, not just for dinner anymore! We took something native to Mexico and slapped it with eggs, cheese, and avocado and—voila—burrito ou can eat for breakfast. And here are a few of our favorites in San Francisco.
Provided we're not all underwater at this point, here are a few choice things to do in San Francisco on this very, very rainy day. (Reminder: Be sure to check weather warnings before heading out.)

I never want to lose a great idea,” says Lauper.
In the infamous “Nail Salon” routine from San Jose stand-up comic Anjelah Johnson, a manicurist attempts to upsell her client with a crystal gel treatment, claiming that “it sparkles like diamonds in the sky.” The new Swarovski manicure at Hayes Valley nail boutique Lux SF brings this promise to life.
