This week's tablehopper: shaken, not stirred.


I was definitely thankful for my family’s awesome Thanksgiving spread—grandma’s giblet gravy in the house! Photo: ©

I’d like to propose more four-day weekends on our calendar. Man, was that good. After a quiet Thanksgiving with the fam, I spent most of my weekend writing, sleeping, catching up on work (and the final episodes of Sense8), making jook, and basically hibernating. Heaven! Although I did head out for a bowl of this delicious new ramen from Iza Ramen in the Lower Haight—let me tell you, a bowl of their spicy ramen after a massage is the ticket.

It’s December 1st, and the holidays are in effect! I’m so thrilled to announce I’m hosting a two-martini holiday lunch at Bix with SKYY Vodka on Friday December 18th. This is going to be a blowout, folks—we’re even going to have Veronica Klaus and Tammy Hall performing live. And potato pillows with caviar in effect. This may be my last event before I head to New York, so I really hope to see you there. If you and your rad friends haven’t settled on a place to get together for the holidays, well, here’s a swell party lunch for you. #LetsHolidayy

All righty then, I need to attend to this fire hose of email, we’ll see you again on Friday!
