“If I read a book, and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.” – Emily Dickinson

As I am still in Oklahoma visiting family (where beef is the one culinary stand-out), it means I’m taking a break and had just one week of local eating so it’s a shorter issue this time around. I still have quite a few Top Tastes to share – best new places, dishes, drinks and bites from my culinary explorations – and those tastes carry on in the drink realm in Imbiber.

Have five food/drink/travel-loving friends sign up for The Perfect Spot newsletter, and I’ll create “Perfect Meal” recommendations based on your request (e.g. exploring a new neighborhood, date night, eating Vietnamese, German, etc…) In Wandering Traveler, I regularly cover places all over, so let foodie-travel-adventurer friends beyond the Bay Area know, too.

I’d love your feedback on any spots visited from my site. As your personal concierge who tells it to you like a good friend would (albeit one who knows the city inside and out), I create personalized itineraries: trips, meals, explorations (check out “Services“).

Let me guide you to the perfect spot!
