2 SEE: Awesome views of 2 national parks

You know that when the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks hold a photo contest, the entries are going to be gorgeous beyond words. And they are. And you can see most of them right here (without going outside).

3 WATCH: One of the best new shows you’ll see in ’23

Post-apocalypse shows are a dime a dozen these days — but “The Last of Us” is extraordinary. It tops our roundup of new films and shows you should totally watch this weekend.

4 COOK & EAT: A super short ribs stew

Nothing adds warmth to a cold, damp weekend like a hearty, savory, stick to your ribs stew, like this one.

6 DINE: A new eatery with ‘Pampered Chicken’

We all were sad when beloved Oakland institution Oliveto closed. But in its place is the promising new ACRE Kitchen & bar. We checked it out recently; here are our impressions.

7 LISTEN: Remembering a guitar god
