Looking for some holiday cheer? The historic Fairmont San Francisco hotel once again has its larger-than-life gingerbread house on display in its lobby. If you’re in SF sometime before Jan. 1, then this is a must-see. Just try not to eat the house, mmmkay?

This Memorial Day weekend, BoConcept, the urban design home furnishings store, is having a tax-free sale on all purchases from May 28 to May 31. And through June 15, the brand’s functional furniture, including sleeper sofas, extendable dining tables, functional coffee tables and more, is on sale. This ottoman (regularly $499; on sale for $429) actually folds out into a single bed — ingenious!
BoConcept has stores in Santa Monica and San Diego, as well as two locations in San Francisco. There are stores all over the country, so check the website for details.

It’s in San Francisco, but that’s OK. My NorCal friends can send me stuff (hint, hint).
Anyway, Gama-Go, the SF label with cute-cool cartoon-like graphics, has opened its first brick-and-mortar store in the SoMa, or South of Market, neighborhood on 8th Street. Until now, the only Gama-Go “store” was online. The new SF store will carry all their online goods, plus some in-store exclusives, including a pair of Air Force Ones handpainted with its signature yeti character. From Thrillist.
This one is for my San Francisco/Bay Area friends, or for those of you traveling up north in the near future.
Let’s Be Frank, purveyor of nitrate- and preservative-free grass-fed beef hot dogs and family-farmed pork sausages (and any other hyphenated modifier you can think of, apparently), is opening a storefront this week in the Marina district. ‘Til now, you could only get the ‘dogs fully prepared from the company’s cart, which parks at the Warming Hut at Crissy Field on weekends. Angelenos will still be able to find a cart at the Helms Bakery complex in Culver City and at Silver Lake Wine. And we’ll all be able to purchase Let’s Be Frank Devil Sauce at all locations, mobile and brick-and-mortar. From Tasting Table.
