April 21, 2009

As some of you may remember, I am just getting back from four days of sun and music and heat (triple -digits, wooo!) and pools in the desert, so this week is a super-short issue. Looks like you had some nice weather yourself. Why thank you, yes, I enjoyed the much-needed break—Coachella is one hell of a good time.

Thanks to guest jetsetter and bookworm writers, I actually have a bit of a column for you to read today. Oh yeah, and there are some starlet sightings too. Next week I’ll share details on the latest news, like the opening of Mina’s RN74 this Friday, the upcoming opening of Bar Crudo on Divisadero, and the unfortunate temporary closure of Postrio this June.

This week I am looking forward to checking out Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation on Thursday, and am hoping the gorg weather continues when I head up to St. Helena for an overnighter and the Atelier tasting at Acme Fine Wines on Saturday (along with a whirlwind tour of eateries and wineries, natch).

Since I shouldn’t be the only one with quality wine in my immediate future, let’s do another giveaway, shall we? Check out the wine tasting event below in the new section the sugar mama, which is where you’ll find tablehopper giveaways from here on out!

Happy Earth Day tomorrow.
