While many celebrities headed to Houston to partake in the weekend’s Super Bowl festivities, one actress and lifestyle mogul was spotted around the Bay Area. Gwyneth Paltrow was in Marin where she spent the day at Juice Beauty. A couple of years ago, the local organic skincare brand, founded by Karen Behnke, announced a partnership with the Oscar winner. In return for helping Paltrow launch her first collection of beauty products, Paltrow came on as Juice Beauty’s creative director of makeup. Goop, Paltrow’s lifestyle brand, now has its own luxe skincare line made with organic ingredients by Juice Beauty. Paltrow spent the day at Juice’s headquarters where she Instagrammed a photo of herself. “I absolutely loved my day yesterday at #juicebeauty HQ meeting with influencers and entrepreneurs including @juicebeautykaren. So inspiring,” she wrote in the post. Rumor has it she stayed (staying?!) at Manka’s Lodge, that she shopped at Cowgirl Creamery, enjoyed oysters at Marshall Store, and had dinner at Osteria Stellina.
How did SF’s notable socials celebrate the Super Bowl? Stylist Mary Gonsalves Kinney and her husband Jason, were on the ground in Houston, where they hit up many a Super Bowl party and posed with celebrities like Jon Hamm.

Finally, here are two upcoming happenings that are worth mentioning. Starting this evening, Comal, our favorite authentic Mexican restaurant in Berkeley, is hosting a series of Taco Bowl Nights.

All proceeds from the bowl sales will be donated to the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, a non-profit that offers aid to immigrants and refugees.
