It’s a truth universally acknowledged that as soon as I find something amazing (and yet somehow also underutilized) here in the city of San Francisco, by the third or fourth visit everyone within 20 miles will have caught on. El Techo de Lolinda (or as I like to call it, the Roof of Lolinda) has been open for a while, yet each time I visited over the past few weeks I found myself almost completely alone, overlooking the city on a warm, open patio with flickering candles and heat lamps, drinking spicy mezcal cocktails and watching the fog stream by. Such a thing — of course — was not to last, and when I arrive with a friend for a quiet, intimate send off, there are no less than four parties taking place. Although, to be fair, it was the most beautiful day of possibly the entire summer.
