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 a double dose of sartorial lookbooks to Silicon Valley made into a mockery (gulp), here's everything you need to know.
