Let's Dance

"Let's Dance at the Nightclub" Gala was held last weekend at Bimbo's to raise funds for Sunny Hills, which "provides ... residential, education, mental health and community-based services designed to meet the needs of emotionally and mentally disturbed, neglected and abused children."

A Night at Gary Danko

I got to go to Gary Danko last week with my cousin who was up here for a conference.



Although we were both planning on getting the three-course option, the menu was so extensive with mouth-wateringly descriptive dishes that narrowing the choices down to three (including dessert) seemed entirely too taxing. So we took the easy way out and each splurged for the four course.

Ceviche Redux


Greetings from Mexico...

I recently spent time in Zihuatanejo, a small fishing village on Mexico’s Pacific coast that has starred in two movies over the years: In When a Man Loves a Woman, it’s where Andy Garcia takes alcoholic wife Meg Ryan in an attempt to lengthen their denial, and in The Shawshank Redemption, it’s where innocent convict Tim Robbins escapes to start the rest of his life.

Modest Mouse, the reigning kings of indie, rocked San Jose State University last Wednesday. Fans generously  welcomed newly added legendary lead-guitarist Johnny Marr of Smiths' fame. Philidelphia-based outfit Man Man kicked off the show.

Apriums Arrive!


First of the season: apriums from
Blossom Bluff Orchards.

Sometimes it feels like things here in California happen overnight. One weekend, you’re enjoying the first tender spring greens, the first sweet strawberries, a handful of early season cherries. Then whammo! The ship comes in. Have you been to the farmers’ market lately? Now the cherries are mounded up into huge piles, vying for space among the apricots, first of the season white peaches and plums.

Over the Velvet Rope

"Here's to gulping from the golden goblet of life that is our San Francisco adventure."

Hello, fancy meeting you here!

Well, here we are in blog-land. I hope we will meet often, maybe stay long enough for a cup of tea or a cocktail and a bit of a giggle.
 
So Who Am I?
I am still working that out, but here are a few of the hard facts. My life journey began in London in 1969. The son of Irish parents, I kissed the blarney stone at an early age so I consider myself an Irish-Englishman—how conflicting is that?
