    Nice blog. Thank you. Have you written anything on the new Vesuvios yet? Haven’t talked with anyone who has been yet. Very curious.
    And do you have a list of good happy hours around town? Do you have a Facebook page too?

      Glad you’re enjoying the blog, Nancy. Yes, I’ve been to Vesuvio—check out my Yelp review for my initial thoughts:
      I’m sure a follow-up will be in order in a couple months.

      And thanks for the suggestion for a column/post on Happy Hours around town. I’ll keep it in mind for the future. Montrio jumps to mind, of course. Esteban too, but their food selections for Happy Hour have slimmed as of late, sadly.

        Hi Raul, Happy Hours..

        I like the dinner and a movie at Montrio. And Il Fornio has some nice happy hour prices. Not that impressed with Cafe Fina except their fish and chips were very good. Still want to check out Sardine Factory happy hour. Look forward to seeing what you find out about happy hours out and about…

        Thanks for doing this blog.
