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.
