Note: This picnic was originally published on Eat Boutique. I will also point out that I’ve also moved back to Massachusetts as of August 2012 so I’m happy to report that I’ve been enjoying the last remaining vestiges of a “proper” summer. In San Francisco summer as we know it back east is an elusive animal so […]

Apparently there’s a winery just two short blocks away from my apartment and I didn’t know about it for the entire year I’ve lived here. I could chalk up my misstep to a lot of various excuses but in my defense it’s a little bit hidden and I’m a tad oblivious at times. Thankfully a post on […]

In the spirit of “it didn’t happen unless there are pictures” I present to you my very first In-N-Out meal. Does this mean I’ve officially been inducted into West Coast life?
