What We're Obsessed With Right Now

The people, food, apps, and more that San Francisco staffers are geeking out about this week.

The Dancing Cat Lady of Alemany Farmers Market

Rebecca Flint Marx, Senior Editor: The breakfast biscuit sandwich at Devil's Teeth Baking Co. in the Outer Sunset. It's a thing of tender, buttery beauty, particularly when it's straddling a pile of scrambled eggs and avocado slices.

Scott Lucas, Web Editor: Crossover cellist Maya Beiser is playing at Yerba Buena this weekend. Too often, artists who work in that new-yet-classical music genre tend to overvalue cleverness at the expense of putting together a decent song. Her badass version of Led Zeppelin's Kashmir does not suffer from that problem.

Jon Steinberg, Editor-in-Chief: For months, my kids and I have been wondering what happened to Jackie Jones, aka the Dancing Cat Lady of Alemany Farmers Market. I was afraid that she'd died. Happily, she didn't. She just took a bad fall a year ago and has been homebound ever since. I love that someone started this Indiegogo campaign to help bring Jones back to health. Go, Cat Lady, Go!

Adam Brinklow, Editorial Fellow: I love the dumbstruck purity of this photography challenge. Participants pledge to shoot one roll of film a week for 52 weeks straight. That's it. There's no prize, no judges, no nothing. It's just an exercise in getting photographers to actually go out and shoot photos. Heather Champ, cofounder of JPG Magazine, represents San Francisco this year, but she's been deployed to Austin for the last couple weeks. Come home soon, Heather, we miss your lens.

Margaux Poupard, Editorial Intern: I've always wanted my text messages to be as fashionable as Karl Lagerfeld and now, they can be. I am even more annoying with my liberal use of cartoon Karl, über hip cats, and his trade-mark fingerless gloves. I hope this starts a new emoji app trend based on famous designers—get on it Yves Béhar.
