Oh, hello there. Excuse me while I toss back another shot of espresso, someone is definitely draggin’ after this past week. I had a wonderful night with my father seeing The Temptations and Four Tops at Wente for their summer concert series—the weather, setting, company, music, food, and wine were all divine! There are still shows into September, take a look!

On Thursday, after moderating a panel at the Wine & Weed Symposium, I attended a dreamy Terpenes and Terroir dinner hosted by TSO Sonoma at Gary Farrell Winery in Healdsburg, with The Herb Somm, Altered Plates, and Crop to Kitchen Community. Yes, we joyfully continued to explore the theme of wine and weed, thanks to some amazing brand partners. (I’ll be posting pics over at @mymilligram!)

If you’re curious about attending a cannabis dinner, be sure to check out my latest article for Nob Hill Gazette on some underground dinners in SF. And subscribe to mymilligram while you’re at it (it’s my latest venture, which is all about exploring cannabis and wellness through low-dose and high-quality cannabis products).

And since we’re talking weed, I’m so excited to share my first video for mymilligram on my brand-new YouTube channel! I’d really love for you to take a look (even if you don’t think cannabis is for you!) and like my video. If you’re into it, you can do me a huge favor and subscribe to my YouTube channel (click that red subscribe button!)—that would really help me out! More videos are coming!

And if there’s someone you know who’s canna-curious, like your Mom, or a friend at work, I’d so appreciate it if you could forward my video as an introduction! Thanks for sharing it in any way. Meet Mrs. Doper, LOL.

Weed was definitely the hot topic at this year’s Outside Lands, which made a groundbreaking move and got permission for cannabis consumption and purchasing in the designated Grass Lands area. Historic! And it was the nicest, most relaxed, and chillest area in all of the festival, with no incidents. Nicely done! I was so happy to be there and witness this important moment in the legalization and normalization of cannabis use.

OSL was lit! I saw some fantastic acts, ate tasty dumplings from Dumpling Time (so nice, I had to do it twice), had daily bubbles (duh), and was very grateful for the Guittard backstage hospitality over the weekend (and the amazing weather, wowza!). You can see pics and videos of my favorite OSL moments over on Instagram and Facebook. It’s the HIGHlight reel!

Stand by for a bunch of pics from recent meals around the Bay on @tablehopper—I’m finally catching up with my damn self. Sorta. Ha-ha. Anyway. Did you see my pics of my omakase experience at Kuma? Just checking! Because that place is a gem.

This weather is purr-fect to celebrate Ferragosto on Thursday—it’s time for a picnic! And it’s also time for me to head up to Tahoe for my annual break—can’t wait to be up there, starting next week. Ahhhhh.

Wishing you a lovely evening. It’s Taco Tuesday over at Tato in Bayview, in case you’re looking for a sweet meal deal.
