Dress for Success

"Success: You Wear It Well" was held at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel last Wednesday to benefit Dress for Success, a nonprofit promoting "the economic independence of disadvantaged women." Cocktails, live and silent auctions, and a special performance by Harry Denton's Sunday's a Drag girls rounded out the evening's events.

Farina for Focaccia


Farina at 10 days.

Most (smart) people wait a good few months before dining at a brand-new restaurant, but not me. I’m always too curious, too impatient and, some might say, too stubborn to follow rules like that. So last Friday night I got one of my favorite friends to meet me for dinner at Farina. It was the restaurant’s 10th night open, but you’d never know it.

Here Comes the Judge


Hopfinger vs. Tucker. Where do you put your money?

I’m one of those…how shall I say…opinionated individuals. Even when I’m really trying not to express obvious displeasure or great thrill, I’m an open book. This quality makes me a terrible poker player (4 aces! Whoopie!) but a good source for candid, genuine, often unsolicited, advice and recommendations. Tonight I'm attending an event that is tailor-made for my particular skill set.

Beer of the Week

Monks are so hot lately—what with the success of that TV show Monk and the film, "Into Great Silence," of the monk's of the Chartreuse monastery (that was so great to see all those fathers in designer cassocks striding down the red carpet at the Oscars right after Brangelina)—that it's hard not to have a craving for a good monk beer.
