What We're Talking About This Week - Super Bowl 50 Edition

We are big fans of SF Marina restaurant Scotland Yard, and their chef was kind enough to share some recipes - including one for his amazing burger - for Super Bowl fans to make at home. 

 The Super Bowl event we are most excited for isn't happening at Levi's Stadium, but right in the San Francisco Ferry Building.  The Puppy Bowl features an adorable menagerie of pups looking for a forever home, and will be going on through this Sunday. 

There is some controversy surrounding the fact that the San Francisco 49ers no longer play in their namesake city, but in a suburb of San Jose.  To solve this, some planners are considering changing the name of the immediate area around the stadium from Santa Clara to a second San Francisco.

Inspired by this weekend's big event, a photographer from the UK's Guardian put together this striking collection of places and events, then and now, that have made San Francisco great.

If you're visiting the Bay Area for the big game, you'll want to check out all of the official events on offer to get the full experience.

Fashionable Films: The Hateful Eight and The Revenant

A costume drawing for Tom Hardy's character in The Revenant
Once a major genre, we haven't seen many great Westerns in the last forty years, so it was a welcome change that this year's Oscar contender movies brought us not one, but two films that celebrate the Old West.  Life for the characters of The Hateful Eight and The Revenant is gritty, dark, and full of hardship, but they also have some really amazing coats.  These are some of our favorite style moments from both films, which are in the running for Best Picture - only The Revenant is in the running for Best Costume Design, though.
