And so it begins… The initial table setting at Single Thread. Photo: © tablehopper.com.
Did you have a nice weekend? Mine started with a preview of the new vendors and offerings at Off the Grid, check out my recap in the chatterbox. I was invited to attend CAAM (Center for Asian American Media) Feast on Saturday, honoring The People’s Kitchen Collective, Roy Choi, and the Asian Chefs Association for their important contributions to the community. It was also a kickoff to CAAMFest, running March 9th-19th—be sure to check out all the films and documentaries that are a part of it.
Also in media land: did you see the trailer for the Jeremiah Tower documentary, The Last Magnificent? Can’t wait for that one!
When your friend who is in town asks if you’re free to join her on Sunday at Single Thread, the only reply is “What time?” What delight to be able to experience that magical place again, I couldn’t believe it. Have you made your reservation yet? I’ll be posting more in a Healdsburg recap for you!
Tomorrow is International Women’s Day, a day I always look forward to spending at A16 for Festa della Donna. This year, the celebration is part of La Cocina’s (first) Restaurant Week, cooking in concert with El Pípila and female winemakers (Joy Sterling with her Iron Horse Rainbow Cuvee and Michela Montanari of Villa Crespia Franciacorta). See you there?
Tomorrow, many women and their allies will be taking the day off to act together for equity, justice, and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity, A Day Without a Woman. Expect to see many wearing red, and if possible, avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women-, and minority-owned businesses). #daywithoutawoman
