Original Joe’s

My buddy, Paul, decided at the last minute to head out to San Francisco for New Year’s.  I hustled on back from Timber Cove to spend the day with him.  Paul’s a life-long Chicagoan and White Sox fan but recently moved to Nashville, so Original Joe’s sounded to me like..
Casa Caponetti

Casa Caponetti

What an AMAZING treat to find Casa Caponetti.  We bought three nights that the kind proprietors of Casa Caponetti donated to the San Francisco National Maritime Park Association, part of the National Parks System.  (By the way, the major source of funds to support the National Parks maritime arm, the..

Point Isabel in Richmond has been on my bucket list since I moved to San Francisco 20 years ago. FINALLY, I got to meet my friend Linda for a nice walk and some water action for my dogs. It’s such a beautiful place. Afterwards, we met our friend, Debbie, at..

Porcellino

Porcellino

A16

A16 for lunch on a Friday.  The place was empty when we arrived at 11:30 but was completely packed when we left two hours later.  A16 is known as the springboard for Nate Appleman who made this place famous years ago and then took off for New York and proceeded..

North Beach Restaurant

Our dairymen friends from Pt. Arena and Dos Palos were in town with their wives for a Giants day game, so we decided to make a marathon party for the two days they were here. We picked them up at The Argonaut Hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf, a Kimpton Hotel, and..

Acquerello

Dave is now an official member of the San Francisco Wine & Food Society, and our first event as members (actually only men can be members) was the dinner at Acquerello on Monday night, the 13th. We thought we had been to this restaurant before, but once we showed up,..
