“Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies. Nobody that matters, that is.” – Edna St. Vincent Millay

Russet Potato “Chips” at Plum preview dinner at Il Cane Rosso

Summer ends and San Francisco’s “summer” begins with pristine days and balmy nights spent sipping scotch on my front stoop with good friends (and the occasional cigar). Concerts in the park give way to SF Cocktail Week (9/21-9/27), while the truly awesome Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Fleet Week arrive early October. It’s my favorite time of year both as a season and in the city.

Top Tastes highlights lamb/eucalyptus pizza, sushi and pasta, and kimchi burritos.  Imbiber sips at Rose Pistola, the world’s first fair trade spirits‘ line, and at a Tasting Panel event. Bibliophile studies drink with three excellent books.
