It’s that time of year again when I’m fielding those ubiquitous what-to-wear-to-the-office-holiday-party questions from family and friends. Is an LBD too expected? Is this mini-dress a little too mini? Is cleavage ever ok? (The answers to the questions should be no, probably and “definitely not.”)
I’m loving the organic-seasonal-local trend that’s swept the Bay Area, but I must admit that it perplexes me. Why is this a trend at all? When did we get so far removed from our food and food sources that we now only get a gold star if most of what we eat comes within 100 miles of where we live?

There are so many things to love about Samovar Tea Lounge, especially during this dark, rainy, wintry time of year. Primarily, of course, there are the teas, virtually any kind you can think of: fair trade, organic, kosher, ancient (picked from trees more than a thousand years old!); green, white, black and even Pu-erh, a rare and extremely rich tea from China.
