Tales from the .com Life

I had dinner last night in San Francisco in one hell of a nice joint. As always there for the grace of God I was. Somehow I was on the receiving end of the generosity of a well-off vendor and got to stuff my face with hedonistic abandonment at one of San Francisco's best restaurants, the Asia de Cuba.

We were fortunate enough to sit at the best table ( you're looking right at it in the pic at right) smack dab in the middle of the place. The tables literally glow as they're two layers of glass and lit from the inside, the walls were long sheets of velvet lit from above to give the room a dense and calm feel. The food, too much of it to finish, was perfect. I had seared Ahi, and shared some lemon grass chicken, had some beef tips, and a few prawns and some unknown rice
puff ball things, and some other oddities in banana leaves--that I didn't know, but ate. Most of it was more than this culinary troglodyte could identify, but I enjoyed it all.

Top it off with more drinks at the neighboring Redwood Room (pic at left) and I was in heaven. Sure work can be hard, and dull at times, but I thank my lucky stars that I have really good relationships with my vendors and we get to celebrate like this. I'm lucky indeed.

Today, I'm in LA though and on my own budget. Hello Burger King!
