The Tents of the 1%
Breathing room comes at a premium around here. If you need some, your best bets are a weekend of camping or a move to Daly City. Kidding. Don’t move to DC. Instead: camp with SF’s Lotus Belle and their colossal Outback tents, now shipping.

A Winery in a Submarine
Bucolic. Kitschy. Both appropriate descriptors for your standard tasting room. Nuclear submarine? Now that’s atypical. Meet Sottomarino, Treasure Island’s new showcase of Italian varietals, pouring now in a decommissioned Naval training facility.

A Bounty of Marilyn Pics
Marilyn Monroe departed this mortal plane 52 years ago. But damned if she doesn’t still photograph well. Proof: the never-before-seen Marilyn Monroe candids on display at MARILYN: The Lost Photographs of a Hollywood Star, now open.

Where to Take Her
Because every man needs a plan, and some need that plan with pretty pictures, we present Where to Take Her: a series that answers a gentleman’s most pressing questions and recurs whenever we get around to it. This month: beaches.

Etsy Without All the Crap
Ours is a city divided. On one side: tech companies and their pixel products. On the other: dudes who make actual stuff by hand. Merging the two: Makers Market, an all-local bazaar of American-made leather goods, furniture and accessories.

And from our Dads ‘n’ Cads Department:

The InsideHook Fatherhood Survey
We recently asked the fathers among you to tell us about your experiences as the paterfamilias. Gentlemen, we’re happy to report the American dad is alive and well. See exactly how he’s faring in our State of the American Dad survey results.

Your World Cup Villains
The World Cup is played for pride. And where a man’s pride is on the line, there is desperation. Desperation compels a man to do uncouth things on a soccer pitch. On that note, meet The Seven (Most Likely) Villains of the World Cup.

Tom Cruise, Asshole
Tom Cruise tends to play assholes. Charlie Babbitt. Frank T.J. Mackey. Lestat. The dude’s a smithy of the a-hole arts. So to celebrate the release of his newest film, Edge of Tomorrow, we present The Tom Cruise Scale of A-hole-ish-ness.
