[DC] Cherry Blossoms, ROGUE 24 & P.O.V Rooftop

DC cherry blossom 2

Dear Food Diary:
A carpet of pink along the monuments and an occasional whimsical pedal shower from the light breeze. Cherry blossom season is my favorite reason to visit D.C. It’s always so purty in pink, specially this year, since it was the 100th year celebration of this beautiful gift from Japan.

It has been a warm winter, so everything bloomed before April. We were lucky to catch the peak/late bloom during the last weekend of March, while we snatched Gilt’s ROGUE 24 deal, $100 for a progression of 16 courses.

Dear Food Diary:
Apparently June 15th was National Lobster Day! To celebrate (belated I know), I’m writing about the best lobster I had on my recent trip to Maine. The owner of our lovely B&B “Morning Glory” recommended the local and hidden gem Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier, he’s a regular, so we knew we were in for a treat.

[MYSTIC] Connecticut: A day by the Seaport

Mystic Seaport 7

Dear Food Diary:
If you still don’t have plans for this weekend, don’t worry, Mystic, Connecticut is less than a 3 hr drive away. There’s tons of things to do in this charming little town.

[SAN FRANCISCO & Berkeley] Eats in 24 hrs


Dear Food Diary:

In between meeting up with family (some of which I haven’t seen in over 10 years) and the 1st FoodBuzz Festival events, I had time to explore and eat around places I’ve missed during my previous 2 visits. There won’t be any Golden Gate Bridge or Fishermen’s Wharf here, just some randomly fun and delicious places I managed to squeeze in.

[SEATTLE]: sleep less, eat more

ferry to Bainbridge Island
Dear Food Diary:
My first time in Seattle, WA. Arrived late Friday evening, and caught a red eye return flight to JFK late Sunday night, back to work Tuesday morning. It was a great getaway with good friends and great food. To sum it up, it was really a sleep less in Seattle, but eat more kind of weekend.
7:30 am Saturday morning, we took the ferry over to BainBridge Island. Our first brunch,  followed by eating all day and a trip to Tacoma’s Museum of Glass.
