For some of us planning-averse types, hashing out a disaster-free Valentine's Day itinerary can get rather complicated. From deciding whether to go out or stay in to not knowing whether to buy a card... for that person you're kinda sorta dating, there are just way too much annoying little boxes to check off your romance-themed to-do list. But preparation is a must because the last thing you want to experience is settle in with your Netflix and chill V-Day partner only to create an awkward (and potentially passion-destroying) moment simply because you couldn't settle on a film that agreed with both of your sensibilities.

San Francisco Magazine Andrea Bennett courtesy of Wynn Las Vegas In the new Wynn Plaza, shoppers can buy Vegas exclusives, work out at SoulCycle and drink a Bellini at Cipriani without stepping into a... casino. When Wynn Las Vegas opened in 2005, it reset Vegas visitors’ expectations of what a casino should look like. Dark gaming floors and football field-length hallways were gone, and in their place were natural light- and flower-filled esplanades, monumental public art and views toward lakes and pools. For tourists who were just beginning to think of Las Vegas as a shopping destination, a carefully curated retail esplanade that was separate from the casino floor helped set a new standard: that the experience would be as important as the goods.

San Francisco Magazine Josh Sens Liz Daly Michael Mina’s new Hawaiian spot is the very definition of a corporate restaurant. It’s a good thing the food is stellar. I did not get lei’d at... Trailblazer Tavern, the new Hawaiian-inspired restaurant in the Salesforce East tower. And though I might have heard a hostess mumble “Aloha,” the warmest island welcome I received came not from a person, but from a written greeting, stenciled in bold letters above the entrance to the mezzanine-level bar and lounge: “E komo mai, e noho mai, e ‘ai a e, wala’au.” Come in, come sit, eat and talk.

Not to mention the dynamic duo recently joined forces with Amazon Alexa to promote the product's many organization tips and tricks they use in their day-to-day lives--from maintaining client shoppings lists to setting reminders for content going up.
