What We're Talking About This Week

Like everyone else, we can't believe how many incredible talents we have lost in 2016.  Prince is gone much too soon, and we'll miss his singularity as an artist and a man - these stories help us to remember the very unusual qualities that made us love him.

While SoCal has amazing tacos, San Francisco is the leader in the burrito game.  This Lucky Peach article explains exactly why the mission burrito is so good.

 LA's food scene has been going from strength to strength, and many of their hottest spots have some delicious off the menu items - you'll definitely want to try some of these.

With the success of the musical Hamilton, there has been extra pressure to keep the founder of the Treasury Department on the $10 bill, and this week the Treasury Secretary responded in kind.  The first US note to feature a woman will now be the $20 bill, with Andrew Jackson being bumped in favor of Harriet Tubman.

San Francisco International Film Festival's 59th season kicked off last night with a screening of Whit Stillman's Love & Friendship, starring Kate Beckinsale and ChloĆ« Sevigny, at the Castro Theatre.  We were there, and if this movie and q&a were any indication, this is set to be a great festival - we are buying up more movie tickets here.

Oscar de la Renta at the de Young Museum

We've been looking forward to the Oscar de la Renta retrospective at the de Young, curated by the fantastic Andre Leon Talley, for months now. It's amazing to be able to see all of the beautiful details of the couture outfits up close. We highly recommend if you are near San Francisco any time soon. Here are some of our favorite pieces.

We Recommend: City of Gold

Food critic Jonathan Gold has been living and eating in Los Angeles for his entire life.  His appreciation of the incredible diversity of the city, willingness to travel into every one of its neighborhoods, and delight in each gem of a hole in the wall or innovative taco truck has allowed him to go on a culinary world tour without ever leaving Southern California.  City of Gold documents Gold's treks around LA, his life, and the food that makes it all worthwhile.
