The America’s Cup (AC) is the third biggest world sporting event behind the Olympics and the World Cup. The world’s premier regatta is held every 3-5 years. America’s Cup got its name from the schooner “The America” which was launched from New York on May 3, 1851. She sailed to England, participated in a race around the Isle of Wight, beating the British fleet and winning Queen Victoria’s 100 Guineas Cup (an award commemorating the Queen’s Jubilee year). It was dubbed “America’s Cup” in the press — and the rest is history!

On February 14, 2010, Larry Ellison and the BMW Oracle Racing Team (of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Yacht Club) sailed to victory, winning the 33rd America’s Cup in Valencia, Spain. BMW Oracle Racing become the first American team to win the America’s Cup since 1992 when America3 defeated Il Moro de Venezia off San Diego. As the winner, Larry chose San Francisco to host the next America’s Cup in 2013 – the city beat out Newport, Rhode Island and Italy to host the prestigious event.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
March 24 – August 19, 2012

“Beauty exists everywhere”
– Jean Paul Gaultier

Calling all fashionistas! You won’t want to miss this dynamic exhibition devoted to celebrated French haute couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier, one of the most important designers of our era. It is without doubt one of the most creative and extraordinary exhibits we’ve ever seen. And what better place to see it than at the de Young museum in San Francisco – the exclusive west coast venue. As you enter the exhibit, you’ll see lifelike animated mannequins, draped in signature Gaultier designs, illuminated against a royal blue backdrop — it couldn’t be more visually stunning. Some of the mannequins’ facial features and movements are so lifelike and surreal, you’d swear they were human… we kid you not! Watch the video below and see for yourself.

“Off The Grid” San Francisco – Gourmet Food Trucks Video & Photos

… a Fun Thing To Do on a Friday Night in San Francisco

Looking for something different to do on a Friday night in San Francisco? Check out Off The Grid – held Friday nights from 5-10pm (rain or shine) at Fort Mason Center near the Marina Green. Off The Grid features the largest market of Gourmet Street Food on the West Coast. For this city of foodies, It makes a FUN night out!

We met a few friends at Greens Restaurant (located at Fort Mason) for a glass of wine at 5pm before venturing outside to Off The Grid – an area surrounded by about 30 Gourmet Food Trucks. In the middle of it all were hundreds of people – and a band providing the evening’s entertainment. Check out our video – it was filmed at 5:30pm, BEFORE it got really crowded!

We decided to split up and walk around to each food truck and check out their gourmet offerings – there was everything from Indian and Vietnamese to Thai and Chinese. See below for a listing of the rotating Off The Grid vendors that you might expect to see on a Friday night:
