This week's tablehopper: it's like thunder, lightning.

Howdy friends. How you guys doing? It’s a tough time in the world right now. A lot to take in. Hopefully last night’s spectacular electric-sky show over the Bay Area helped bring some wonder back for you.

On Saturday, I had the great honor of officiating the union of two oh-so-dear friends, one whom I have known for 17 years! It was a magical wedding in the Shakespeare Garden in Golden Gate Park—you know this English major loved that! It’s a pretty cool thing to marry two people you adore, let me tell you, but I’m also glad the pressure is off—that was intense! Shopping at the Alamo Square flea market on Sunday with sis was a great way to decompress (and cool off in the park). Plus a badass sundae from Bi-Rite Creamery, oh hell yes.

Maybe you’d like a little distraction? I mean, yeah, food is always good for that. I was recruited (read: paid, to be clear!) to be part of the launch of a new app called Jeeyo, which is all about having conversations on all kinds of topics, from your favorite spots in your city to books to coffee. I’m just starting to post over there about brunch spots (pancake chat!) and dim sum (let’s talk XLB!). Download the app (on iOS or Google Play), follow me, and let’s start talking dim sum today! I know you guys have so much info and many tips to share.

Speaking of brunch, am I going to see you at Rooh on Saturday September 23rd? The tablehopper Indian brunch is going to be sooooo good. We’re going to have a fab tasting menu with paired cocktails, and it’s only $68 (with tax and tip included—I know, bonkers!). Less than a third of tickets remain, so hop to it. Details are in the chatterbox today!

I’m still playing catch-up, so expect an in-depth update on China Live’s Eight Tables next week, plus some 510 news and more. I’ve actually had a nasty migraine since Sunday evening, which really needs to leave, like, right now, so let’s just dive in here because I don’t have a lot of gas in my tank, so to speak.

Meow.
