iro-wwd-300We have a lot to look forward to, fellow San Franciscans! From a very buzzed-about new restaurant (with reservations being snatched by the second!) to a French import we can't wait to invest in, we're excited to welcome some fresh spots to our hood. Of course, there's always new happenings to report on from Silicon Valley that are sure to make you LOL.

Facebook co-founder Sean Parker is planning a huge wedding shindig in Big Sur this summer. The theme? Steampunk. Not Games of Thrones, as folks thought before the gazillionaire set the record straight. (Gawker)

Congratulations are in order for two Bay Area chefs: Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food and Justin Cogley of Aubergine in Carmel have each earned a coveted spot on Food & Wine magazine's list of the Best New Chefs for 2013. (Eater SF)

Celebs swear by Iro's too-good-to-be-true moto jackets, and now the French brand is landing stateside. The first outpost is stationed in NYC, but expect one in our neck of the woods in the very near future. (WWD)

Would you ditch your iPhone if it meant easier and quicker access to your fave social-media platform? Well, Mark Zuckerberg thinks you should. The new Home interface is sure to attract the most addicted of Facebook users. (Fortune)

Mark your calendars! Chef Michael Chiarello's Coqueta is opening its doors on Saturday, April 13. But, you better act fast — GrubStreet claims a slew of reservations are already booked! (GrubStreet)
