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 new development in the tech bus feud to Café Du Nord's revamp, here's everything you need to know.
While the high-tension dispute between techie commuter buses and anti-appropriation activists has been contentious to say the least, the latter group gained a small victory this week.

You might want to start your spring cleaning early and clear out your closet, because CH Carolina Herrera is opening its first-ever boutique in S.F. The Grant Avenue location will boast a capacious 4,520 square feet, so you’ll have plenty of room to stretch those legs while deciding which pretty piece to take home. Shop date, anyone?

If you’re flying with United anytime soon, here’s another reason to get excited for your trip: SFO's newly remodeled Terminal 3 will make its debut next Tuesday, and will feature pop-up shops by local artisans, including Marin’s McEvoy Ranch and Berkeley’s Collector Art Shop. And, if you're curious to check it out but don’t want to say "bon voyage" to the city, you can visit the terminal for a little sneak peek sans flight — today only! (Racked SF)
The times they are a-changin’ — and that couldn’t be truer for Café Du Nord. The popular Castro bar and music venue will be receiving a makeover courtesy of the folks behind Trick Dog, Salumeria, and Flour + Water. Much like its bar’s name, The Bon Vivants are proving you can teach an old dog new tricks. (Eater SF)
