Friday Link Roundup: Free Donuts Today in SF and Thirst Quenching Wines for Summer

Friday June 2, 2017

Man, these weeks are just flying past now. Our life has become an extended to do list with a mysterious deadline. We’re also trying to get in all the fun family time now, before we’re all hunkering down with a newborn for the rest of the summer. This weekend brings a barbecue on the beach, and Dave and I are sneaking out to see Wonder Woman. (Dave: yeah? Me: OBVIOUSLY YES TO THE LADY ACTION HERO MOVIE.)

I hope you all have a lovely weekend as well!


From around the web this week:

Governor Brown is off to China today to begin a California-China negotiation on emissions and climate change. This a day after forming a Climate Change Alliance with New York and Washington. Sometimes, it’s good to be the 6th largest economy in the world.

In local news, IT’S NATIONAL DONUT DAY AND YOU CAN GET FREE DONUTS AT THESE PLACES IN SF. What poor timing to be on an elimination diet.

Bloomberg looked into why infrastructure is so expensive to build in the US, compared to equally wealthy countries. It’s rather interesting.

This article on how Manhattan’s Bleecker Street went from normal to chic to deserted is ALSO interesting. (And makes me wonder if some neighborhoods in SF will see a similar decline. There are already a LOT of vacant storefronts on Valencia that haven’t been rented for over a year.)

Speaking of SF shopping…did you guys know there’s a (fairly) new children’s used clothes store that specializes in french brands (!!!!!). Why do none of you tell me anything?? This is a partnership, people.

I’ve been eating my weight in avocado toast recently (see: elimination diet + 9 months pregnant), and Pop Sugar has an awesome roundup of easy variations.

New York Times’ wine critic actually titled his latest Wine School assignment “Your Next Lesson: Thirst Quenchers.” In case that sounds like something you might want to read.
