This week's tablehopper: pizza o'clock.


The Judah pizza at Zero Zero.

What is it about Thursday nights that always have me acting like it’s Friday? I’ll blame it on just getting my hair “did.” After receiving a fresh coat of fiery citron on my tresses, I swung by Sightglass to check out the new digs (lookin’ good!) and splash some caffeine on my synapses. I was then off to Zero Zero to raise a glass and wish Bruce Hill (and team) a happy one-year anniversary. Of course, my friend and I couldn’t leave without getting sucked into the pizza vortex over there. The Judah (tomato sauce, garlic, roasted red pepper, squash blossoms, prosciutto cotto, mozzarella and scamorza) was one hell of a pizza, oh Lordy.

The pizza patter continues with today’s fresh meat review: a visit to my delightful neighbor, Ragazza. I hope you have already had some lunch—I just realized the timing of my Friday missives may be cruel for some.

And hey, people, I want to thank you SO MUCH for voting tablehopper the Best Food/Drinks Blog or Site for the San Francisco Bay Guardian Best of the Bay 2011 Readers Poll. I couldn’t ask for nicer readers—thank you! Meow.

On a final note, Omnivore Books played host to a totally adorable marriage proposal vignette yesterday in the store, with owner Celia Sack live tweeting the entire scene. Here’s a recap for those who missed it—it’s really good stuff.

Buon weekend, everyone.
