the house of shields re-opens • san francisco, ca

There's plenty of old bars in San Francisco, but few over a hundred years old, which is just one reason why the House of Shield's re-opening is so newsworthy. Condé Nast Traveler granted the bar's re-opening for its Concierge.com Unpacked newsletter feature yesterday, loving that the bar has no clock (or a TV); the SF Chronicle's Inside Scoop column ogles over the authentic "period piece" detailing (check out the brass statue lighting fixtures below); and foodie blog favorite Tablehopper digs up some juicy historical facts about the former men's drinking club. And I love that there will be absolutely no mention of "mixology" here!

The House of Shields is located at 39 New Montgomery Street, across from the Palace Hotel, in San Francisco.


christina + kele engagement • san francisco, ca

There's no better way to say goodbye to a city than to take pictures at all your favorite local spots—especially when those places all remind you of the one you're about to marry. I accompanied Christina + Kele to a few of their favorite San Francisco spots before they headed off to the Big Apple, including Coit Tower (the proposal locale) and Shanghai Kelly's (the classic how-I-met-my-future-husband spot!). Congrats to C+K—you two are one cute couple!!!
