Thoughts on 2016 Election

I feel obliged to get political for a moment.

My #LeanIn Story

Wow.  What a way to start 2010!  For the first SF Eaters of 2010, I decided to do something a bit different and bring the culinary delights of the SF Bay Area to my home, and hosted several friends and Scott Spencer, of Spencer’s Pantry, in my home for an evening of gastronomic and visual…
