There's something really special happening at 3rd & Clement in San Francisco by way of Lily, a restaurant serving super tasty, authentic Vietnamese cuisine. There's a veteran chef at the helm, Rob Lam (Butterfly SF & Perle in Oakland) cooking his heart & soul out for your eating pleasure. The "winter melon soup" with meatballs & spare ribs (slowly simmered for 36 hours) is the warm hug of love we all need right now. The Chicken Pho Ga is as good as any pho anyplace.

MOVIE: Last Night In Soho

Last Night in Soho is a ghost story and tells the story of Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), a young woman in the present day who is obsessed with the music and style of 1960s London, and who travels there to study fashion. Once there, she finds her dreams are filled with the escapades of another woman, Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy), who went to London in the 60s seeking romance and stardom. The dreams become nightmares and there's your spooky film for Halloween weekend. A solid cast and script with suspenseful direction make this a must watch this weekend.
