This week's tablehopper: play misty for me.

Howdy, folks. Happy Friday. This morning, as I was running stairs in misty Alamo Square and attempting to burn off at least five bites of the decadent SF Chefs: Dinner Party Project—Stars Realigned dinner I attended last night at EPIC Roasthouse (and maybe some of the Champagne and oysters I had at Waterbar), I was wondering how the hell am I going to get all my work done today? I’m cranking against some big deadlines—and let’s just say someone barely made it home before turning into a pumpkin last night (right at 11:59pm, I laughed).

I’ll be posting a recap of last night’s very special meal on very soon (check out upcoming Dinner Party Project and preview events here). Fortunately 707 correspondent Heather Irwin has some juicy news for you today in 707 Scout.

But I did want to share some exciting news with you today: starting on Monday, I am partnering with Gilt City for a couple “Insider” weeks of tablehopper-curated experiences and offerings! Yup, we’re going to be featuring some of my favorite restaurants, places, and things, like Contigo, Deli Board, Namu Gaji, and Ragazza, along with Public Bikes and Whole Body Tonic. Deals, baby, deals!

Are you a Gilt City subscriber? If not, click here to sign up for the San Francisco edition (it’s free) so you can view and access all these special tablehopper Insider sales next week. Look for more tablehopper picks in July as well! I’m so fired up to be highlighting so many of my favorite local businesses, I hope you dig it.

In case you’re looking for a little something to read, here is a link to my weekly post on—this week is about five of my favorite salads. Yes, I eat salads.

And I also have a link to my weekly You Gotta Eat This segment for KGO Radio: this week I featured the Cambodian place, Angkor Borei, in Bernal. Listen in here. Lastly, did you have a chance to check out my first piece for 7x7 magazine on the new generation of local chefs cooking with soul? It was one of my favorite articles I have written in a while.

Okay, signing off. Have a great weekend full of PRIDE.
