Washington: Voter’s Rights Under Fire

Opinion Washington: Voter's Rights Under Fire USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- For almost 60 years, the state of Washington has been the gold standard for straight-forward concealed carry licensing. Washington has had shall-issue concealed carry with no training requirement since 1961, and there has never been any sort of problem reported as a result of their simple law which requires a small application fee, a basic criminal background check, and fingerprints. No mandatory training. No local law enfo...

Suburb Staid No More: A California-French Family Remake a Bay Area House

When we first met Stéphanie Ross several years ago, she had a hint of plaster dust in her hair. That was at Remodelista’s San Francisco Market, where she was showing her children’s clothing line, Les Petits Carreaux (now available at Anthropologie and in some women’s sizes, too). At the time, she had just about finished resuscitating her family’s apartment near the Champs-Élysées—we took a tour and immediately featured it: see A Grand but Understated Flat in Paris. And she was also getting start...

Domestic Science: How to Sweep a Floor, Perfectionist’s Edition

Everybody should know how to sweep a floor. I got into the habit in college when I lived with a half dozen other reprobates in a shambolic wood-frame home on the edge of campus on the low Iowa prairie. Our house was a typical undergraduate hovel, with yellowed linoleum tiles that curled up at the seams and a Sears stove that hadn’t been cleaned since the 1950s. Some kind of rodent lived behind it. One of my roommates, a real freethinker, was the first to take up sweeping. Gradually, it caught on...

5 powerful books by 5 powerful Southern California women writers

It’s a happy accident that the five books I’m looking forward to reading this spring are all by women, and an even happier one that this column coincides with Women’s History Month: The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker – San Diego hometown girl, UCLA alum, and New York Times bestselling author. In her previous novel, “The Age of Miracles,” Walker imagines a world where the days and nights are inexplicably growing longer while her young protagonist, Julia, is experiencing her own off-kilter expe...

10 Design Ideas to Steal from Verjus in San Francisco

Traveling through Europe in recent years, designer Lindsay Tusk and chef Michael Tusk noticed “different variations on the same theme” of an informal and energetic style of dining in Paris, Venice, and San Sebastian Gambero. So the Tusks, known in San Francisco for their restaurants Quince and Cotogna, came up with the idea for Verjus, a bar à vin and cave à manger (eat-in cellar) with a “high-fidelity atmosphere full of gusto, spontaneity, and excitement,” says Lindsay Tusk. An all-day menu wit...

Five Months Later, Google’s US Repair Centers Now Accept Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Michael Crider Google’s forays into being a full-fledged hardware supplier have been shaky at times. Android Police reports that, after five months of surprising silence, the company is now accepting Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones for repairs in its mail-in service. Previously Google accepted walk-in Pixel 3 repairs at licensed uBreakiFix retail stores, or via the Puls in-home repair service (oddly limited to the San Francisco area). As of today, Google is accepting standard repairs by mail, previ...

PETA Uses Staged Video of Animals Being Gruesomely Killed Washington, DC — -(AmmoLand.com)- A new report published today in fashion magazine Women’s Wear Daily alleges PETA and other animal activists have been propagating a staged video of sickening animal abuse to support their anti-fur lobbying campaigns.

CBS News Wants Guns for Them.. But Not for You ~ VIDEO

Opinion U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I missed these details at first. A TV news crew was the victim of a recent robbery attempt. This was a video crew from the local CBS affiliate in San Francisco. The crew was protected by an armed guard. This is interesting because CBS condemned ordinary citizens for being armed. The network said it is unwise for you or me to have a gun for self-defense of our family while CBS protected their camera equipment with armed guards. I love the smell of hypocrisy in ...

Wine Country Vacation Cottages

Is the California Wine Country on your list of places to visit? Perhaps this year? Events begin as early as spring here in Northern California, and I’m excited for barrel tasting in Healdsburg next weekend. When touring the wine country, one must live the full experience! There’s something so special about sitting outdoors around a firepit surrounded by grapevines sharing a bottle purchased in a nearby tasting room! Where I live, the wine country includes both Napa and Sonoma, they are adjacent ...

Destroyer: An Under-the-Radar Restaurant Serving Food from the Future

Jordan Kahn, the enfant terrible of LA dining (in a past life, he visually outed an LA Times restaurant critic), has been quietly operating Destroyer, his tiny 16-seat Culver City breakfast and lunch spot, since September 2017. The inspiration for the interiors? “I wanted to create a minimalist space void of superfluousness, a neutral canvas for the food, ceramics, and people,” he says. “Often, the professional kitchen is a space associated with noise and chaos. I wanted to create a more tranqui...

Kitchen of the Week: A Hacienda Kitchen in Sonoma’s Hippest Winery

Brothers Andrew and Adam Mariani are fourth generation California farmers who, after spending time as vineyard hands in Europe, returned to their hometown and bought an old vineyard in the foothills of Sonoma, California, to start their own winery, Scribe. The early 1900s hacienda was in need of a complete overhaul (it had partially burned down in a fire), so working with architect David Darling of San Francisco firm Aidlin Darling, they restored the interiors without losing the essential charac...

Bohemian Restraint: Lena Corwin’s Tranquil Home in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset

One of our favorite house tours on Remodelista in recent years? The Brooklyn brownstone duplex of Lena Corwin, a textile designer, photographer, and the author of two books (Printing by Hand and Made by Hand)—and her husband Josh Dreier. What we loved about their apartment was its offhand style, modest furnishings, and quiet restraint. Nothing felt belabored. Then, in 2013, the couple relocated to San Francisco, where Lena grew up, and bought and renovated a 1913 Craftsman-style house in the Out...

A Curated, One-Stop Source for Modern Hardware, from a Pair of Canadian Architects

One of the least-considered elements of a kitchen or bath remodel? Fixtures and fittings, which suddenly become an issue when you find yourself scrambling to source the perfect cabinet pull. Enter: Toronto company Casson, founded by Megan Cassidy and Jane Son, who met on their first day of architecture school at the University of Toronto in 1996. After many years of practice, they formed Casson Hardware in 2017.  As they say, “We were roommates as students, mothers of messy little boys, and cons...

Patterned Tile + Bathroom Vanity Combos

I’ve been back and forth to San Francisco a few times this week meeting with a client. She has a full home renovation in progress and now that the drywall is up and the walls are painted, we’re in the ‘picking-of-the-finishes’ phase of the design (my favorite!). We’ve been focused on the two bathrooms and for her hall bathroom we chose this porcelain tile for the floor and this vanity in charcoal and I’m so sooo excited to see it all coming together. I love a bold patterned floor tile paired wi...

Coming to a City Near You: 9 Boutique Hotel Upstarts for the Design-Minded Traveler

This book offers a look at several generations of LA’s coolest figures

Tosh Berman was one of the first people I met when I moved to Los Angeles. We worked together at Book Soup in West Hollywood and at one point we carpooled together from Silver Lake. Or rather, I drove us since Tosh didn’t drive. Tosh seemed like a character out of a play, with his slicked-back hair, librarian glasses, striped shirts, and socks that made a statement, back before we had considered that socks on adult men could make a statement. Tosh’s shotgun small talk felt more like dialogue, no...
