Food, food and more food.







This week has been food themed. Seriously, i don't think i've ever so many incredibly rich and delicious meals in one week. Some of them were more absurd than others, some were new places, some were old standbys. Some were sports joints with lots of beer and some were lavish prix fixe meals. It's time for a fast. (Not really though).

How Have I Never Been.


Until last night i'd never been to St. John Bread and Wine before, which to be honest, is ridiculous. It's been waiting there, just around the corner for me to go to for over a year. And let me tell you... i did it up for my first time and feel like i should basically never have to eat again. Hooray for having huge celebratory style meals for no reason. I think you'll understand what i mean when i break down the meal two of us consumed in list form.

+ dry sherry
+ razor clams
+ game terrine with damsons
+ butternut squash soup
+ one bottle of roussillon
+ venison pie for two
+ buttery greens
+ blood orange sorbet with vodka
+ hot chocolate pudding
+ grenache
+ calvados
+ coffee

Simple Things.


These kinds of soap holders aren't something i ever saw until i got to England. And for some completely unknown reason, i always really like them.

Christmas in 10 Photos.










Stumptown.







A place worth it's own post. On my dad's recommendation i went up to Stumptown (in the Ace Hotel) last week when i was in the city. I'm not quite sure what i expected, but what greeted me was a coffee shop that looked like someone who would definitely be my friend had designed it. Good coffee + taxidermy + old looking machines = great.

A New Year.


2011. It still doesn't feel quite right writing it out. There's always a point in time at the beginning of the year that i'm stunned by the fact that another year is gone. The new year looks foreign, like something you imagined as a distant future. Kind of like when you watch an old movie that imagine how it will be in the year 2000. Flying cars! Silver outfits! Future foods! This one seems like such an unknown. For some reason i feel like a lot will change. But i'm not quite sure what it will be yet. Just a hunch.
