main If you sped through the week without catching up on the latest happenings, then lend us your ear for a sec. At this point, it seems redundant to stress how often food news pops up in the Bay — so don't worry, we've balanced it out with plenty of other exciting happenings. Here, the latest and hottest news bites so you'll have plenty to chat about during your weekend outings.

Consider Berkeley your new go-to spot to save face! That's right — on top of its blossoming shopping and dining districts, we're thrilled to announce that the city has unveiled a beauty oasis, the Perricone MD flagship. So yes, now you can squeeze in one of their amazing oxygen facials in between all that heavy-duty Fourth Street shopping!

You've seen the artsy cakes and the exhibits, but have you really tasted SFMOMA for what it is? Well, now you can with its new food-meets-art experience, On becoming something else, featuring the likes of Rich Table, State Bird Provisions, Bar Tartine, among others. (Eater SF)

One of our favorite swoonworthy gents (yes, that would be the Jake Gyllenhaal) was spotted dining at the Mission's lauded Italian resto, Locanda. Curious as to what dishes the star chowed down on? Artichokes, burrata, steak...the guy knows how to order! (Tablehopper)

It's long been the talk of the town that S.F. prices have become exorbitant [read: ching, ching!]. Thankfully, The Bold Italic helps us see the silver brass lining, with a neighborhood-specific price recap for what one can expect when looking for that new abode. Time to save up those pennies.

The Giants seem to have their mitts in everything these days, so really, poppin' bottles is old hat by now. That said — the beloved team partnered with Mumm Napa to create two very special, very limited-edition bottles of bubbly. Stock up now, because we'll be celebrating another ballpark win soon.
