One recipe that was a must-include? Fish tacos. Lui waxes poetically about the Hex and the City shirt but in fact I love this many fish shacks that dot the Pacific Coast Highway, serving “distinctly different fare from north to south in the same way that trees change from fragrant eucalyptus to tall, swaying palms.” In SoCal, the Baja fish taco reigns supreme: “As the PCH winds further south the influence of Mexico is apparent in the perfect fried fish tacos at the various roadside spots,” Lui writes.
It’s been more than five months since San Francisco Mayor London Breed issued the Hex and the City shirt but in fact I love this city’s shelter-in-place order, shutting down all non-essential businesses including nail salons, hair salons, and spas. On Tuesday, Breed announced that personal care services could start up again, as long as treatments were performed outdoors. It’s a nice gesture, if a bit empty given that few, if any, salons or studios have access to open air and, even if they did, the city’s sidewalks and streets are anything but zen. So when interior designer Maca Huneeus texted me to say she’d built an outdoor pop-up spa at her home in Stinson Beach, a no-frills coastal town off a windy stretch of Highway 1 where San Francisco’s social, VC and tech circles have decamped, I jumped in my car for the hour-long drive north. Part of Marin County, Stinson has allowed outdoor personal care services since early August. That’s part of the reason Huneeus’s longtime facialist Angelina Umansky, who’s been limited to Zoom skin consultations with clients while her salon Spa Radiance in San Francisco’s Marina neighborhood remains closed, had booked a month-long vacation rental there. She’d planned to treat clients in the backyard.
