Hopefully no one we know would do anything this dumb, but this should be a cautionary tale to all you river lovers out there (myself included). It worries me that I keep reading about how high and fast all the rivers are going to be this summer, and that coupled with record high temperatures we're already getting spells trouble. Everybody is always talking about rafting trips and if it happens, we have to make sure we all wear life jackets!
For the last two weekends, I've been picking up oysters at the sunday farmer's market, and the Tomales bay ones are outstanding! Seven bucks for a dozen, you can't beat it!. And the guy sells oyster knives for 13.50. The farmer's market was off the hook at 10 on sunday, it was rad. (I just had to edit this paragraph for too many exclamation points!)
I had a pre R. Kelly drink at Bistro 33 near Mikuni last night and I felt a bit uncomfortable. It's pretty stiff and fancy inside. The decor is cold and it's surprisingly small. The fare is similar to 33rd st. bistro, with a few different dishes and higher prices. The wine list is the same, with a weird mix of northwest and cali wines, but no wine from any other regions. They have the snoqualmie sauvignon blanc that you can get at Taylor's for a pretty reasonable six bucks a glass. Brew got some kobe mini burgers that were tasty, but overcooked (the bartender didn't ask her how she wanted them and they were well done and a bit dry). Overall, I felt a bit underdressed and ignored by the waitstaff. I don't think I'm the kind of person they want hanging out there. We did see Geoff Petrie and some old assistant coach guy (mike c. spotted them), and that's probably more what the owners have in mind. It's a shame, because I love 33rd street bistro, and besides the ear busting fuck jazz, I feel really comfortable there. In fact, I ate breakfast there on saturday and it was delicious as usual. Bistro 33 does stay open super late, so I may go there again some day for that reason.
