As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work 'round the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground, to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. This week, from Blue Bottle's new Oakland digs to a Tartine tell-all, here's everything you need to know.

It may be pouring rain outside, but we found a way to bring some spring fever into your weekend. BellJar’s latest poppy-hued lookbook is so print-tastic, we’re eager to give our solid staples a much-needed break for its pretty pieces. (BellJar)

When the weather takes a turn for the worst, there’s nothing better than curling up with a warm cup of your favorite brew. And, there’s no better place to get cozy than Blue Bottle’s spankin’-new coffee shop in Oakland’s Temescal 'hood. (Eater SF)

The secret service might be good at keeping things hush-hush, but we’re not so tight-lipped. First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted chowing down at Cotogna last week, with a full entourage of security in tow. Let’s hope this means the FiDi restaurant is Let’s Move approved. (Tablehopper)

Get your plastics ready: Much-loved Hayes Valley's Reliquary boutique has launched an online shop! Keep your raincoat and umbrella on the rack, and scroll through its selection of tribal baubles and rustic carryalls, even in your most embarrassing of jammies. (Reliquary)

What’s it like to work at one of the most popular foodie destinations in the city? Tartine’s Liv Combe answered a few of The Bold Italic’s burning questions, and she's even sweeter than what the bakery has in its cases. Try to guess which treat she calls "the little black dress of pastries." (The Bold Italic)
