I don’t often eat donuts, but when I do, it should have bacon on it. I’m up in San Francisco for the week to celebrate a friend’s birthday, to hint at my own birthday in a week, to attend a Sacrelicious dinner party, and to catch up with friends. Andrew and Lexi don’t live far [...]

One thing was certain, though, this place won the award for the best designed menu. The prize…was getting its picture taken. Um, not that you can see it [...]
