Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall leaves by raluistroAround this time every year, there are fallen leaves everywhere especially where we are in Glen Park. Though the cold weather and the shorter days and longer nights have melancholic effects on me, I actually appreciate the change in the season and the change in the scenery.

To all our friends who are local, Happy Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for.

Food crawl in the city - The October list

Brunch Drunk Love - Platter by raluistroMijo and I usually go to the same places to eat which is ironic because we live in a city where it has more restaurants per capita than any other cities in the United States. Our favorite places are generally other people's favorites too, judging by the long queues.  We do try out new restaurants during special occasions or during my once a month meet-up with my foodie friends Dinah and Karen or with my friend from church Brent and my college buddy Mike B.  Last month was an exception because I've been to, not one, but several restaurants where I've not been before.

Musical in the City - HAIR at the Golden Gate Theatre

Hair - Will Call by raluistroWe saw the musical HAIR the other day, and are you ready for this????? There was nudity at the end of Act 1! Even though it was done in good taste where the entire tribe were bathed in ocean blue lights, I can still see their stuff hangin'. But I am not complaining because they were all beautiful and free and they're spreading their love.

Matcha in the City - Maharaja exhibition at the Asian Art Museum

Asian Art Museum - Party Vive  by raluistroWe love going to the Asian Art Museum's evening mixer which is locally called Matcha. Aside from the discounted museum tickets, we usually expect live performances that are culturally oriented, hands-on art activities and giveaways such as food, tea, and other souvenir items. The museum comes alive at night during Matcha making art even more enjoyable.

Wine tasting in Napa Valley - Domaine Carneros

Domaine Carneros - VineyardThis view can be seen from the Domaine Carneros chateau's outdoor terrace. We got here by chance on our way to Sonoma for the big bottle sale at Chateau St. Jean for the bottles of wine I'll be bringing with me when I visit my mom and my siblings for Christmas.
