This week's tablehopper: pie in the sky.


Bless the friends who show up with two homemade pies with fruit from their land. And two tubs of vanilla ice cream. Photo: ©

Howdy. How was your weekend? I had a long one up in Bolinas to celebrate a dear friend who is getting married soon, and I don’t know how we lucked out with the sunniest weather ever, but I’ll take it. We were a happy group, enjoying late brunches and cocktail hours in the garden, two full beach days (with whale and seal sightings!), hikes (complete with blackberry picking), impromptu performances, daily fresh-baked cookies and brownies, and our baked ziti (actually mostaccioli) with Sunday gravy was extra-baked. Heh.

It was hard to drive home yesterday—the glimmering water and warm sun were trying to entice me to play hooky. I seriously considered it. But I knew I had a preview of the upcoming Namu Stonepot I needed to cover, so I hope you enjoy today’s exclusive sneak peek.

This Friday is the (sold out!) tablehopper whisky rooftop party with The Douglas Room crew, I look forward to seeing some of you there!

Enjoy the sun.
