Congrats to our buddies Frederick and Maximilian Guerrero who have taken their visually encompassing tumblr, #Burgerlords, and turned it into a restaurant, also named Burgerlords. Before the meaty lifestyle space opens this October, the brothers will be doing a few pop-ups, including a first taste of Burgerlords tomorrow night (9/17) at Slow Culture Gallery.
More info on all of that here (you can win free hamburgers for a year)

Robert Wright, a man who at 3 o’clock in the morning saved his ribs and his kids from an apartment fire in Fresno. The only injury our hero sustained was smoke inhalation, but because he already had other smoke in his lungs, he was unharmed.

The one thing missing from a recent visit to Chihuly Gardens—the immense exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s glass sculptures under the towering Space Needle in Seattle—was a glass of wine to encourage some extra lingering amongst the artwork in the galleries. While the fragility of the space probably helped dictate this lack of vino, it was missed. There is something about sipping something excellent while seeing something exceptional that enhances an experience. Even when you’re on tipsy toes. Anyway, those wanting to celebrate Chihuly with a toast of great wine will have to wait no longer. To commemorate the 20th vintage of Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Artist Series, the Washington state winemaker worked with the artist to present his work on the label of their 2012 vintage, “a unique, collector’s wine that represents the highest quality and pedigree from Chateau Ste. Michelle.”
