  1. Tayler’s Automatic Refresher: A Review, A Side (ways) Trip

    Ever get that feeling that you just want to get in a car and drive? Watch the rolling hills pass you by, and the city fading in the distance (if you live in a city)? I get that feeling every once in a while–problem is, I don’t have a car. So sometimes it’s hard to Continue…


  2. Garden Court Cafe: Friday Review, Local Pairing, Holiday Sendoff

    I have kept this little review tucked away for some time now. But I think I’m ready to share it with you now–it’s for a cute lil’ breakfast place in Glen Ellen, California (right near Sonoma) called the Garden Court Cafe and Bakery, and it was the first place I ate at as a married Continue…

  3. Starbelly: A Review, Finally

    I have been meaning to review Starbelly, the newish restaurant from the owners of Beretta, for some time now. I went there for dinner before the wedding, with my friend Sarah, one of my bridesmaids and my honorary makeup artist. We started out with drinks at the bar, and were immediately taken with the cool, Continue…

  4. Mendocino Weekend Part Deux, I Suppose

    Last Friday, I wrote about Cafe Beaujolais, a delicious French dining experience in downtown Mendocino where Matt and I celebrated his birthday. Today I bring you Le Petit Rive, which, officially is a restaurant that lies just outside of Mendocino, in a tiny little place called Little River, tucked behind a postal office, which an Continue…

  5. Mendocino, Sea Ranch Weekend and Cafe Beaujolais

    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 Continue…

  6. Bar Crudo: A Sleek Experience

    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 Continue…

  7. City Guide: Salta and Tilcara (Argentina)

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

    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. Continue…

  8. City Guide: Mendoza, Argentina

    City Guide: Mendoza, Argentina

    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 Continue…

  9. City Guide: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    City Guide: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    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 Continue…

  10. Two for One: Range + Kokkari Reviews (from the Archives)

    While Matt and I are flying, busing and walking around Argentina, we thought we’d keep you entertained by sharing some of our favorite posts from the archives. I’m digging deep, so deep that some posts are pre-Musical Pairings, so be sure to still check out Matt’s page for refreshing twists on old favorites. Range and Continue…
