The Lower Haight: FILM LIVES! Glass Key Photo and 4×5 Gallery
I'll definitely check out this spot soon, soon in the lower Haight. This is great!
via haighteration:
"For two years, Glass Key Photo has been a delightful pop-up in the back of Rooky Ricardo’s vinyl shop in the Lower Haight. But with a growing customer base, and interest in film photography on the rise, owner Matt Osborne finally felt it was time to expand."Read on: Glass Key Photo and 4×5 Gallery

PacHeights: Evolution
I had not heard of a main-stream juice bars asides noticing their popularity while visiting Los Angeles, is it really becoming popular in the Bay Area? I know I'd like to try Corazón in the Mission soon, but have not yet been. I'm very juice-illiterate +all I know is that many friends are in love with their vitamix machine...

It was a Coffee Bean last I remember passing by on the bus/1 California. Not sure if Coffee bean went kaput nationally, I had ever been to one. Starbucks has made some big Bay Area news by acquiring the Bay Area's little bakery darling La Boulange, and teaming up with mobile-finance tech company Square.

Long-time reader Harry H. has the scoop on snacks and the clover machine updates in a Starbucks in the financial district and I can't wait to check them out with the Boulange treats in store.

Anyways, it was the lettering on the windows that caught my attention, seems like they'll do OK with the tremendous foot traffic from the medical crowd for lunch.
Have you tried the juice-menu at Evolution? Do tell.

Fabio
This is a few weeks late, but in case anyone was wondering, wonder no more.
I *just* finished watching the 10th season's finale for Project Runway.
Fabio was my FAVORITO and I would love to wear those pastel pieces he did for the final, though that colour pallete would be a first. Just thought I'd let you know.
Duh! moment of season10: Michael Kors learning that kids love capes.
Best words of season10: "Fashion is not for sissieeeeeeees" -Michael Kors at the candy store challenge.
Highlight of season10: FABIOFABIOFABIO. I was married to him every Thursday
Who was your favorite?
Congrats to Dimitri!
