What We're Obsessed With Right Now (exist) - 51

Compiled by Scott Lucas | September 17, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Rebecca Flint Marx, Senior Editor: Gelateria Naia's dark chocolate sorbetto. I don't have the language to even come close to describing how good that stuff is, but I will say it is the best dark chocolate sorbetto or sorbet that I've ever tasted, no contest.

Scott Lucas, Web Editor: There is a "Kinky Friedman Burger," being served today at the Wes Burger pop-up at Mojo Bicycle Cafe. It's a burger with barbecued pastrami, sauerkraut, smoked Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing, which makes me giggle because despite being named after the leader of the Texas Jewboys, it's not even trying to be kosher. It still makes me hungry, though.

Jon Steinberg, Editor-in-Chief: Blake Mills is a guitar virtuoso, one of the most in-demand session artists in music, and a collaborator of everyone from Lana Del Rey to Conor Oberst to Lucinda Williams to Jackson Browne. (Listen to his heartachey single with Fiona Apple here.) He's playing back-to-back shows this weekend at two of our coolest small venues: Friday night at the Chapel, Saturday night at Sweetwater Music Hall.

Annie Tittiger, Managing Editor: I'm no art historian, but I'm incredibly excited to for tomorrow's opening of Fertile Ground at the Oakland Museum of California. The exhibit not only displays the words of every important Bay Area artist from Frida Kahlo to Barry McGee, but it also shows how they interacted with their peers and how the time period is reflected in their work. Did you know that the Coit Tower muralists could actually see labor unions striking at the Ferry Building while they were painting?

Andrea Powell, Editorial Intern: Last weekend I visited the Point Bonita Lighthouse for the first time and, as is the case with most lighthouses, I am in love. Perched on the very tip of the Marin Headlands, the lighthouse is accessed by a wobbly cable bridge that leads you over the crashing waves below. If it hadn't been for the spectacular view of the Golden Gate, I would have thought I was in Europe.
