Cocktails with Camper

At the Macallan dinner (the name of the house is actually The Macallan, so perhaps that should be “the The Macallan” dinner, I was seated next to San Francisco’s most dogged cocktail blogger and freelance journalist, Camper English. After dinner, I had plans to make some rounds and convinced young English to come along. We caught a cab and flew down to St. Marks, and the unlikely cocktail bar, PDT.

How Sweet It Is



It’d been three years since I last had brunch at Slow Club (and wrote about it for SF Station), which makes me feel old because I remember that meal like it was yesterday. So I was happy to go back yesterday and be reassured that—even with a chef change and a few years in between—the food remains as good as ever.

Harvest Party at the Ranch

Greetings friends,

McEvoy Ranch in Marin County was the stunning setting this weekend for the annual McEvoy Harvest Party. Nestled deep in the Marin countryside, a mile or two from Petaluma, this is the “must-attend” event of the year. I went with my dear friends Lauren Williams and John Peake.

A Bite of the Big Apple

Last week, I had an opportunity to do some reconnaissance on the New York bar scene, which is often held up with London as the best in the world with San Francisco generally considered to be tightly nipping at their heels.


Beyond Birkin

The perk (and danger) of working near Union Square is the instant access to some of the city’s best shopping. On any given lunch break, you can usually find me meandering in and out of the stores scoping out the latest merchandise en route to a café for a bite to eat. The other day I popped into Hermès, where they’re hosting an impressive jewelry trunk show through Wednesday for Pierre Hardy’s new Fall 2007 Enchainements collection.
