This week's tablehopper: take two.

Happy Friday, yo. You ready for tomorrow night, which is most likely the biggest holiday party night of the month? I seriously think I have five parties to attend tomorrow night. December 17th, thy name is insanity. I need a magic carpet to get around. I think my bike, Peche Trois, might be the answer—I’ll just be sure to be lit up like a Christmas tree, a blinky light extravaganza.

So today I have for you part two of my East Bay eating excursion I went on a couple weeks ago. Before my friends and I paid a visit to the fabulous Hotsy Totsy, we got our tacos on and our mac and cheese on in Oakland. Read all about both spots in today’s fresh meat.

Oh, and since we’re talking the 510, this piece of Oakland news just came in: Tanya Holland’s B-Side BBQ is now open! More details for you on Tuesday, but I thought you’d like to know the smoker is in effect. (Here’s a link to the most recent news about the project on tablehopper.)

I don’t know about you, but this elf’s list of things to do is VERY long, so I am signing off!

Holiday cheers!

Marcia Gagliardi
