Mendocino, Sea Ranch Weekend and Cafe Beaujolais

November 6th, 2009

Have I told you about my lovely weekend yet? I don’t think so–I haven’t had time to really breathe since I got back. And, alas, it’s already Friday, and it’s time for a local review. As I mentioned, last weekend was Matt’s birthday. I made a caramel cake, and whisked him away for our first […]

Bar Crudo: A Sleek Experience

October 23rd, 2009

San Francisco is filled with ‘cute,’ ‘hip,’ ‘sleek,’ restaurants. I’m a sucker for good logo and simplicity–and been eyeing Bar Crudo since before the restaurant made its move to its new (discreet) home on Divisadero. On a street that houses NOPA, it’s probably easy to be overlooked, but this restaurant already had a devoted following […]

Travel Guide: Salta and Tilcara: Part 3 of Our Honeymoon

October 9th, 2009

I’ve saved the best for last. We loved Buenos Aires and Mendoza, but we LOVED Salta and the surrounding regions. From the moment we stepped off our double decker AndesMar bus (on which we spent 17 hours watching ridiculous straight-to-DVD movies, slept, played bingo, and drank unnecessarily bad wine), we kind of fell for it. […]

Mendoza, Argentina Part Two of Our Adventures in Argentina

October 7th, 2009

After doing some big city touring in Buenos Aires, we jetted off on a plane to Mendoza, the heart and soul of Argentina’s wine country. We grounded ourselves at B&B Plazza Italia, an old home owned by a lovely couple. Located in the center of downtown Mendoza, the B&B definitely had a different vibe from […]

Buenos Aires: We’re Back!

October 5th, 2009

Why, hello. Hello! It’s been quite the September. On Saturday, September 12, 2009, Matt and I got married. At a beautiful private estate called Casa Vecchia. It was a rough morning–it rained. There was thunder. There was lightening. And then the skies parted, and it was a beautiful sunny day. More on the wedding next […]

Millenium: My Vegetarian Venture

September 4th, 2009

I have to admit that when I heard that I’d be going to Millenium, a popular vegetarian restaurant, for my friend’s bachelorotte, I couldn’t stop thinking about meat. As much as I love vegetables, and will often cook meat-free meals for myself, I always like to know that I have the option of having meat. […]

Maverick Review: A Celebration in the Mission

August 21st, 2009

Let me just start by saying that there should always be an excuse for a celebration. In this case–a much-anticipated double date with our friends whom we’ve been meaning to casually grab dinner with for months. But, between weddings, weekend getaways, charity walks, business trips and family visits, we just couldn’t find the time. Alas, […]
