DOCUMENTARY: PICK OF THE LITTER
“It takes a very special type of dog to do this job” says a guide dog trainer. The 2019 doc about six puppies in the running to be guide dogs for the blind has just been re-released for download on Disney Plus. Filmed locally over two years around the San Rafael training campus, the doc is a compelling watch that tugs at your puppy-loving heart strings but it’s the amazing bonds these incredible dogs build with their new appreciative owners that gives the super feel-goods.

There’s a new kid on the block on 3rd & Clement in San Francisco – Lily – a restaurant serving authentic Vietnamese cusine. There’s a veteran chef at the helm, Rob Lam (Butterfly SF & Perle in Oakland). The Chicken Pho Ga is as good as any pho anyplace: slow-poached Mary’s chicken breast over flat rice noodles, with Vietnamese herbs in a sensational ginger chicken broth and finished with a confit chicken leg. #micdrop!! Order food to-go from Wed to Sun.
