coming soon: el carnicero

A little late to the party, but as they say… better late than never! Congrats to one of my favorites chefs, Eric Williams, who announced the opening of his second restaurant: El Carnicero.

changes coming to stone mad

I’ve never been to Stone Mad (with the exception of a super quick drink post last year’s TedXCLE, but that really doesn’t count given the crowd and amount of time I was actually there).

happy dog

Did you ever feel like you’re the last person to know about/discover something? That’s exactly how I felt when I wrote last month about Eric Williams and his new involvement with Happy Dog. Of course I’ve heard of the place, but had never been. I received a ton of e-mails regarding that post as well […]
