This week's tablehopper: boa tarde!

Happy Friday to you! It’s sunny, World Cup is on (yay, Brazil, yay, Mexico for their wins, and whoa there, Spain), and I am definitely in a Brazilian state of mind at the moment. I have some bossa nova playing and today I have my final installment from my trip to Rio, so if any of you are there or planning a trip to that amazing place, I’ve got you covered (the first half of my piece is here).

While I wish I was back in Rio watching the Confederations Cup at Jobi, at least SF has a bunch of places where you can watch the games. I’ll keep updating the list as more info comes my way. Tomorrow, FORZA AZZURRI!

So, it ends up it’s not just World Cup season. It’s also soft-shell crab season, and I have a write-up for you on on some of the best places to score that tasty treat.

Enjoy your weekend!
