Behold the Winner of the #7x7Summer Instagram Contest

Last month we asked our fabulous readers to show us their best food photog skills by hashtagging their colorful meals with #7x7Summer. 

We Wanna Be Friends With Hog & Rocks Bartender Michael Lazar

Brooklyn-native and longtime Bay Area resident, Michael Lazar is one of San Francisco's leading experts in spirits and cocktails. Lofty words, I know, but you won't find many other bartenders infusing rye with candy cap mushrooms, “reverse” barrel aging Manhattans, barrel aging beer in 65 gallon bourbon and rye barrels, or inventing a whole cocktail program called "Pimp My Old Fashioned." 

Secret Recipe: Perbacco's Olive Oil Cake

 7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email schuyler@7x7.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef. 

The Gin & Tonic: The Quintessential Summertime Cocktail

Beefeater Gin & Tonic

The Gin and Tonic—there’s not a better drink during the dog days of summer (or fog days of summer, if you reside in SF).  You’re probably familiar with the classic G&T, but you might not know its checkered past of medicinal uses and global domination.

Street style in subway form.

Welcome to the first installment of our biweekly vignettes looking at life on San Francisco's second-favorite transportation system.

Taste Testing the New 49ers Menu at Levi's Stadium

You might get a little confused driving up to the new home of the Niners in Santa Clara. At first glance, Levi’s Stadium looks a lot like a Levi’s storeespecially since there’s nary a 49ers logo in sight—but you won’t find any denim wares inside the foodie haven (which also happens to host football games).
