What We're Obsessed With Right Now

San Francisco staffers on the food, music, movies, and more they are geeking out about.

Carolyn Alburger, Associate Editor: "Tomato Sherpa. It's a company that delivers all the ingredients you need for a specific dinner at home in pre-measured amounts. You can check out the weekly menus and pre-order on their website. This week, I had fish tacos on the table less than a half hour after the kit arrived at my door. The ingredients were delivered at the peak of freshness—as in, I could actually peel the skin off the avocado they sent."

Ellen Cushing, Senior Editor: "Rhye is one of my favorite bands right now, and their new video for 3 Days is all kinds of old-timey adorable. PS: They're playing at Outside Lands today at 4:45 so you should probably/definitely just take the afternoon off and head over to Golden Gate Park to see 'em."

Scott Lucas, Web Editor: "I just started reading Joyce Goldstein's book Inside the California Food Revolution. That's the food that I grew up eating. It's normal. So it's hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that someone had to invent a salad with baked goat cheese or a grilled piece of salmon."

George McIntire, Editorial Intern: "Honest trailers."

Caleb Pershan, Editorial Fellow: "Public Barber Salon. I've been trying to get my haircut here for weeks, because they're so great and yes, they give you a free beer with your haircut. If you're looking to blend in with a fade, go to FSC— otherwise hit up Public."

Katy Quigg, Editorial Intern: "My sister, who is an interior designer, introduced me to this chandelier by Jonathan Browning Studios. The combination of the mother-of-pearl shells and Edison style bulbs makes for a great conversation piece!"

Stevanie Wazna-Blank, Editorial Intern: "Beyonce's new haircut. Miley and she are bringing the blond pixie-cut back, and although people have given them flak, I'm all for it. Low maintenance, ladies!"
