Weekly Round up

San Francisco magazine | February 24, 2012 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Start up, break down. E.B. Boyd uncovers the untold risks that fledging startups face in Silicon Valley–and they’re not just economic.

For writers to unwind. Writer’s block can be well, debilitating. So why not take off to mellow Lake County for a few days? Local memoirist Laura Fraser is holding a workshop retreat in April for anyone from professional writers to hobbyists. Worst-case scenario is you come home with a couple extra bottles of red.

And live from Berkeley… Comedian Seth Meyers was in town this week, and in case you missed it, we’ve rounded up some of his funniest moments. (Reader discretion is advised.)

Bring a helmet, ditch your Sperrys. Outside magazine reports on how Larry Ellison has changed the rules of the America’s Cup, ensuring that the 2013 race will be something closer to Nascar racing than another outing with the yacht club—and may well attract a lot more viewers (and sponsors).

What do they know? They’re from Portland. Refinery 29 sat down with Fred Armisen and Carrie Bronstein of the hit TV show Portlandia to ask them what their must-go spots are in town. Though some might say everybody knows about Bar Tartine, and if they knew anything about coffee, they’d hit up Ritual.
