This week's tablehopper: stories for days.

Ah yes, such a delightful summer day, full of mist and clouds. Obnoxious.

It’s funny how stories can fall into your lap. Last week, it was the incredible SFChefs Stars Realigned Dinner (you can read my write-up of the memorable evening on here), and just this Wednesday evening, I had another unexpected experience, at Acquerello. See, this is why I go out so much: it gives me a lot to think about, and then to write about. This city is so rich with people and their stories. I hope you enjoy today’s piece, and we also have a 707 scout piece for you.

I need to hop onto some other deadlines, so enjoy the weekend! You have plenty of options to pig out: Pig & Pie is now open, and High on the Hog is this Saturday. There’s also this brewtruc beer garden on Saturday, and quite the farewell-to-foie dinner from the Bon Vivants.

Stay outta trouble.
