How crazy is our weather?
I posted that picture below as a reminder to how long my hair got. I couldn’t stand it anymore and chopped it down to my shoulders on Saturday. I feel much more liberated now that all that crap is gone.
I realized that I love to eat and drink more than anything else in the world–as long as it’s with the people I care about. It’s probably why I like to travel to places where I know the food is going to be really good. Hence the reason why I’m not a big fan of Ireland, Britain…those places that didn’t get the spices back in the days of Amerigo Vespucci. Was that his name?
I’ve got some new faves that I need to spread the word on. One of my new favorite restaurants La Mar is located right along the waterfront at Embarcadero 1 and a half. La Mar is owned and operated by friends of friends. The Peruvian food is TO DIE FOR. Everything on the menu is fantastic. They’ve got a cevicheria bar, too.
Today I headed up to Napa and got lost as I usually do trying to find my way to Yountville. I was so distressed, I seriously considered calling it quits and turning back home. I’m glad I didn’t. We had brunch at Ad Hoc. OMIGOD, that is the best brunch I have ever had in my life. IN MY LIFE! It’s a fixed price menu, changes daily. We started off with yummy buttery perfectly toasted french bread I couldn’t get enough of and a summer salad with salmon and a dill cream cheese. The main course was duck confit hash. The last course was belgian waffles with berries and vanilla cream. It doesn’t matter that I got lost and it took me two hours to get there. It was well worth it. I swear on my life, I think this is the best brunch in the world. We have all vowed to come back for dinner when they have their special fried chicken.
