Tasty Tuesday: Our Summer Faves on the Grill

burgers-1-2

We hope everyone has been enjoying the summer as much as we have! Our favorite part about this time of the year is being able to bring our passion for cooking and entertaining to the outdoors. We wanted to share our love for the outdoors with our fans so we’ve been running a fun Facebook Portable Grill Giveaway this summer and have had a great response. And this week, we decided to round up a few of our favorite summer time barbecue recipes for Tasty Tuesday. Enjoy the rest of your week and be sure to get your summer grill on tonight (grilling isn’t just for the weekend!). If you’re on Facebook and like to tailgate or grill at the beach, lake or any outdoor space – check out the Zephyr Sizzlin’ Summer Giveaway contest that ends on Friday!

AetherSF: Sustainable architecture meets sportswear

aetherSF3

We discovered AetherSF while walking through Hayes Valley in San Francisco and also saw them at Dwell on Design, so we thought we’d share some pics of their super cool, sustainable space. The company creates clothing by utilizing technical fabrics in a sophisticated form with a refined modern aesthetic.

The first-ever stand alone store in SF is a concept space that’s constructed from three  8′ x 9.6′ x 40′ recycled shipping containers and features a custom glass-encased lounge, reclaimed oak floors, and a belt-driven “dry-cleaner” style conveyor system. We love how all construction work was sourced locally in San Francisco.

We’d love to know, are there any buildings in your city that combine sustainable design with modern architecture?

America’s Cup

AmericasCup2

It’s been an exciting time in San Francisco as the city prepares for the 2013 America’s Cup. The official race will be sailed in September and the Golden Gate Yacht Club is the hosting club and defender of the America’s Cup, after their racing team Oracle Team USA defeated the Swiss team in 2010. This is the first time since 1995 that America’s Cup is being hosted in the U.S.

This past weekend was the Grand Opening Ceremony with sailors representing the four teams contesting the America’s Cup: ORACLE TEAM USA, Emirates Team New Zealand, Luna Rossa Challenge and Artemis Racing.

Here are some pics from Opening Day and amazing shots of the boats racing in our favorite city! If you happen to be in SF this summer, check out the schedule here.

A Modern Home for Young Hollywood

The hit show Glee is one of our guilty pleasures… fun music, dancing, high school drama and a hilarious cast. And, we just discovered from a recent feature in Dwell, that actress Jayma Mays (who plays Emma, the redheaded teacher) is also a fan of our fans! Jayma and her husband, Adam Campbell, have a Roma Island hood in their gorgeous modern Los Angeles home. You can check out the entire house tour here.
