This week's tablehopper: all right, all right, all right.

Are we all done dissecting the Oscars yet? There was a lot to cover with my amigos the past 24 hours, from the usual fashion discussion (so. many. boring. dresses.) to plastic surgery (I’d read this) to aging to whether Harrison Ford had a stroke or is just a big stoner. No comment on the sexist heroes montage. #hollywoodfail (But Lupita could have been in it, what a shining star.) I also got a kick out of Beth Spotswood’s recap on Slow News Day, go Beth.

Okay, let’s get back to food, something a lot of people in that Dolby theater could use a bit more of in their life. On Saturday, I was back at KRON4 with my tablehopper hot list, talking one of my favorite topics of all time: sandwiches. Here are four of my current favorite sandwich spots, although I’m thinking I’ll need to do a follow-up soon.

More video, more food. Although this isn’t about stuffing your face. Project Open Hand has been delivering meals in the Bay Area since 1985, and they are looking to replace one of their delivery vehicles (it’s literally held together with duct tape!). Watch this video about all the miles they’ve driven helping out folks in our community, and consider donating to their Indiegogo campaign. Thanks!

Happy Mardi Gras, folks. If you need a reminder of some places where you can get your gumbo and good times on tonight, here you go.

Enjoy your week, see you Friday.
