This week's tablehopper: food food food.

Every week, I tell myself, “I’m going to write less. Today’s issue is gonna be short.” And every week, a ton of news and events and cool stuff flows into my in-box and on Twitter and Facebook. So, yeah, today’s issue is a biggie. Again. Me lo siento.

And whoa, it’s a busy week, with SF Chefs officially under way. There are a bunch of events, from seminars to the tasting tent to this Wednesday’s Mexican feast at Mijita. See you on the track. And don’t forget tablehopper readers get 10 percent off of all events (just use this code at checkout: tablehopper 12).

Today on You Gotta Eat This on KGO Radio, I talk about the molto tasty take-home lasagne at Marcella’s Lasagneria and Cucina in the Dogpatch. Yeah, go ahead, blame me for the weight gain later.

Welcome back to all the liver-fatigued bartenders returning from Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. We missed you.

You ready to high-dive in? In honor of the Olympics, okay, let’s do this.
