While looking for another place to review Thai Vegan, my new favorite restaurant (and where I took my friend and client, Kerry, for lunch today), I ran across this website:

I thought some of my veggie friends (and some of YOURS!) might like to know about it - apparently it is nationwide.

Summer Thursday Jazz Nights at Outpost continue this Thursday, August 5

This week at Outpost it's Resonance featuring vocalist, Patti Littlefield and low brass maestro, Mark Weaver in an unusual and experimental exploration of spatial sound: no chordal instruments, just tuba and voice, re-fashioning material ranging from standards to jazz and pop tunes to original compositions.

And for the second set of the evening, it's Equilibrio, a quartet whose concept “is based on balanced improvisation through the vehicle of original compositions… Continue

Where in Burque is Adelita? Summer of 2010

Ms. Barelas Babe is a bit under the weather today, what with her broken ankle and all. She isn't able to post her usual fabulous blog today, so I jumped at the opportunity to ressurect my Where in Burque series.

Thai Vegan ROCKS

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the food at Thai Vegan, which opened last week at Osuna near San Mateo.

I confess - I've had 4 meals in the past 5 days there!!!

As a vegetarian (not vegan), the menu is diverse, the "faux" meat is delicious, and there are plenty of vegetable-only dishes to choose from too.

I've sampled the Pad Thai, the spring rolls, the golden tofu appetizer, the Cashew "Chicken", the fresh Ginger stir fry, the tempura vegetables,… Continue

Put These Words/Phrases on the FCC List

I have some pet peeves w/certain words/phrases that are over-done. I'd love to see these banned:

"At this point in time" - what about 'now'?

"Yummy" - should be banned by anyone over kindergarten age particularly by Food Reviewers!

"Bucks" or "Grand" - instead of Dollars as used by TV anchors

Anyone else?

How to Lute a Sunday in 'Burque for a Jade Earful

Imagine you hear the sound of pearls falling on a carved jade plate. The sound is round and smooth, delicate, falls gently into the curves of your ear canals, stringing a beaded melody. Or you hear thousands of hoof-beats trampling moist forest floor, thudding, the breath of men and horses straining, spears lifted. Or you hear a hawk lighting on a pine, claws clasping, soft bend of a branch, drops of morning dew falling to earth.

Or perhaps… Continue

Notes from the Russian River

Jan. 4 It's a brisk morning and the sky is gray-white and overcast. I'm staying at the River Inn in Monte Rio, a small, sleepy town along the Russian River, enjoying a brief vacation between semesters in graduate school. The River Inn, nestled among dark-green trees, is a comfortable ochre European-style house, with a dining room heated by a potbelly iron stove and wide windows facing out onto the river, and small, unheated bedrooms on the… Continue
