A reception at the Dolby residence celebrated Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, a collection of essays tackling the subject of the special relationship a straight girl has with her best friend, a gay male. Best friends Melissa de la Cruz and Tom Dolby were the book's editors.

The Food Bank

Known as a bit of a space-case among friends, the one thing I can confidently say is that I have a sharp mind for food—which is good for this job and bad for bills, dates, cool indie music trivia, star sightings and most else. I can recall the most obscure things I’ve eaten with an exactitude that isn’t necessarily as impressive as it is a bit weird. I suppose though, the result is that my mind if full of delicious food. Things could be worse.

Added to the food memory bank, as of last week, are two dishes that I’ve had nothing quite like before and want to have a lot more of right now:

Johnny Depp is Bad to the Misanthropic Bone in Ed Wood

Dessert Week

Much to my dismay, I had to turn down an invitation to a dessert and dessert wine pairing event at Lark Creek Steak last week. I’m not sure if that’s the culprit (because I need something other than my sweet tooth to blame) but as it turns out I ended up “dedicating” my entire week to dessert.

Here’s how it broke down:


Up in Wine Country

So I had business up in Mendocino last week, but managed to sneak in and see a couple of my favorite wine producers in the entire state of California. I thought you should know who these guys are, because they are young, they are talented, and their wines are off the hook now, and getting better.

Wine of the Week


Gangloff Côte Rotie

The Rhone Valley's Yves Gangloff made his annual gallop through California last week, and I was fortunate enough to dine with him. Perhaps I'm even more fortunate to get to taste his always provocatively labeled, always delicious wines.

Great Côte Rotie, for me, is the exemplar of what Syrah can be at its best. Medium bodied, dense and savory with game, tar, black fruits and wild herbs, the wines are just spectacular. Yves Gangloff's wines are some of the truest expressions of Cote Rotie I know.

Every Week is SF Cocktail Week


H in action

Parents say that "every day is children's day" when their kids ask why there's a Mother's day and Father's day but no Children's day.
