…and more chicken parts. Miss T and I had been wanting to try out Ippuku, a new izakaya in Berkeley, ever since we saw the construction signs go up for it. Earlier this month we had a chance to try it out. An izakaya is a Japanese eatery akin to a pub or tapas bar. [...]

…at Fat Face (’natch). Located in a light commercial zone behind a flooring shop, Fat Face may be the anchor for a mini gourmet ghetto (along with Let Them Eat Cake!) on the edge of downtown Davis. Actually, with limited hours* and only a small, handpainted sign to announce its presence, make that a secret [...]
…or snack, actually. For our LOST finale viewing, Miss T and I opened up a few of the last items we recieved via product resupply drop—DHARMA Initiative Beer, Lemon Lime Soda, and Cheddar Baked Snack Crackers. A good, happy, sad time was had by all. Namaste.

…buy DHARMA Initiative Explorers Cookies. I love this time of year—after ordering several boxes of DI Explorers Cookies via station computer (I think it’s code 2-4, then 1-6-4, or something), our supplies of DHARMA Initiative Chocolate Mint Cookies and Lemon Iced Shortbread Cookies arrived via PRD. The Explorers sell several other varieties of cookies, but [...]
…Miss T and I shared a rare roast beef sandwich at Il Cane Rosso. Later, we headed over to Macworld 2010—sans Apple Inc. but still worth a look-see. Possibly the most spartan trade show booth I have ever seen. Microsoft Office, uh, icons were on hand. I might have been able to get a better [...]
