It's been such a whirlwind week that it's hard to know where to begin. This past Sunday, our chef Chris Kiyuna married his long-time love and 2015 SF Chronicle bar star, Karri Cormican, and The Perennial turned out to celebrate the happy couple. The next day, we found ourselves among some real heavy-hitters on Condé Nast magazine's list of the Daring 25 "game-changers" in this country (see the list in Vanity Fair). And then the next day, we learned that Bon Appétit included us among America's Best New RestaurantsChris's folks must be so proud.

On top of all this, we're gearing up for a big "TAKEOVER" event at The Asian Art Museum this Thursday evening, when we will present a variety of ways to engage with food and climate change, from the debut of 5 short animated films (with help from Jon Adams and Bonfire Labs) to interactive exhibits (with help from IDEO and 4 intrepid CCA students) to conversations with inspiring people in this field (Soil Solutions, Singing Frogs Farm, 18 Reasons, Imperfect Produce, etc).  Join us!

All in all, it's shaping up to be a pretty big week. We hope you can join us at the museum or the restaurant to soak it all in.
