Big Bad City Lust!
I left my $$ in San Francisco, and that's just fine.
Main thing is, I am so pumped to blog! (Click on title to read more...)
I just now (OK, a couple of hours ago, for reals) returned from San Francisco, so I have plenty to blog about. But of course there are a few things to do around the office, so before I talk about the San Francisco Theater Festival or the SFMOMA or BART vs. Portland's MAX or why the hell the Berkeley summer visitors center doesn't have wifi, I need to, you know, copy edit. And write some content for this here CHOW! that's coming up.
It's sort of good to be back. I missed my garden. How can I continue my quest (which you'll be hearing oh so much more about) to be a locavore (except one located, well, locally, i.e. the Willamette Valley) when I'm not at home to buy and blanch a boatload of vegetables?
I did get to drink some Anchor Steam Beer in San Francisco (though, er, are there local hops in that local brewery?) and eat some goat yogurt from Redwood Hill Dairy. I don't really like chevre, and I'm not such a big yogurt fan (though I've been eating more of it thanks to Scio's Noris Dairy), so I'm wondering why in the heck I thought I would like goat
And er again ... Molly needs me to mebbe help out a bit with the CHOW! now.
I swear I'll do that ... after I stare at the bear given to me by my partner--the one that says "Cal"--and contemplate the differences between people who call the University of California at Berkeley "Cal" and people who call it "Berkeley."
Really. More SFMOMA and de Young (ooooh pretty art!) coming soon.
