Soul Man

Self-proclaimed soul "rebel" Martin Luther played to a feverish crowd at Mezzanine May 26. Eccentric musician Cody ChestnuTT, who donned a Jimi Hendrix-esque cape, and Oakland songstress Jennifer Johns opened the show.

Chablis Raveneau

There are few things I enjoy more than a glass of Chablis.

The region just north of Burgundy on France's east side is famous for its chalky white soils, which gives that minerally texture and Chardonnays of lovely power and grace. There are many great producers, my faves being Dauvissat, William Fevre, Louis Michel and of course Domaine Raveneau, who makes highly individually styled wines and is also greatly popular in San Francisco.

Kudos to Camper

Had to give a shout out to Camper English, whose blog,  Cocktails with Camper, chronicles all things cocktail related and reports on his burgeoning freelance writing career.

Tonic, Part I of XXIVIXDMXIV is a very nice illustrated entry about his first attempt to make tonic water at home. These replications of early tonic water are fascinating to me, as it gives a bit of glimpse as to what those 19th century British officers in India must have been doing to stave off malaria. Of course, even today's tonic might be better than what they had, and today's gin almost certainly is.

7 People, 35 Glasses Later



We hosted a big dinner party last night at my house celebrating the visit of my sister Eden and baby Clementine (who will one day be one of the world's great gastronomes). Many courses, many wines--a great time was had by all. But, the challenge with so many wines--and having a wife who prefers to use a separate and proper glass for each one--is the clean up in the morning. Ugggh.
