Introduction – Part Duex

Well that sure lasted a long time.  A whole one post before the pressure got to me and I needed a sabbatical.

I’d say that this time I will be committed to keeping this journey alive a little longer on its second life; but my current track record doesn’t offer much faith that I’ll actually follow through.  
At this stage, I do plan to give it a go for as long as I can last.  I will start with Stones Throw – our place of dining last Saturday and hopefully follow that up with Osso after the coming weekend.  That should get the groove going!
I do not intend to turn back the clock and write about all the future plans outlined in the original introduction.   That will just have to be a tease.

A Welcome Message from M&V

I have been kicking around the idea of starting some sort of a blog-like thing for a while now and finally decided to jump in and see how it goes.   Maybe I write this introduction and never post again, maybe it turns into something more….only time will tell.

For now, this will be focused on two (highly unoriginal) topics:
  • Dining out (primarily in San Francisco, our current home); including some bar talk
  • Travel
Basically, I hope to create a little log of all the wonderful (or not so much) places and things that my wife and I do.  Plus, since we already take a million pictures of food and do nothing with them we now will at least have a little bit of an excuse to be “that guy” holding everyone else up from chowing down.
A quick preview of what is to come:
  • A weekend trip to Napa and Santa Rosa [Russian River Brewery] in September
  • Two weeks in Singapore/Japan in November
  • A weekend trip we took to Portland, OR in June [to use a filler as this gets started]


  • Domo Sushi [7/13 meal]
  • Le Pigeon [back in Portland]
  • A new place each week


  • Mikkeller Bar
We hope you follow us along on this journey which in turn I hope that I am able to keep writing about….
Until next time – M&V
