How y’all doing? I know I wasn’t the only one feeling jumpy yesterday. Was really grateful earthquake number three didn’t show up at 4am in the morning. I already went through that in the Northridge quake—no need for a repeat performance of the mad dash out of the house in a nightie and mismatched shoes. Not my favorite look. I have a feeling a lot of people will be updating their earthquake kits this weekend (I’m in that camp). Right? Do it.

Since I am still playing a monstrous game of work/email/life catchup after my trips, fortunately someone else who has been on the road was available to write up today’s jetsetter piece. Chef Eddie Lau of The Summit shares his stories and pics while eating his face off during a recent trip to Montreal. Yup, there will be bagels. And poutine. And Au Pied de Cochon. Loosen up a belt buckle and have a read. We also have a 707 Scout post today that should make you both a little thirsty and hungry.

And for a little Friday playtime, here’s Cheese or Font?! Yup, time suck alert. The weekend is shaping up to be a sunny one, enjoy.
