What's up with the Spanish Gin Tonic? If you are vaguely aware of European cocktails or are a juniper fiend you are probably up to speed on Spain's obsession with the Gin & Tonic. The Spanish "...

Finally, a decent brandy suggestion. My homemade Vieux Carre is very drinkable!

Also excited to try the Plantation 5 rum I picked up. ('tis the season for Dark and Stormy's, after all)

Quicky version 3 is out. Now with Android 5 styling and support for San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh.

My team just launched a new "Always-on" Android Wear API at Google I/O. Try it out!

https://io2015codelabs.appspot.com/codelabs/always-on#1
When you buy a watch you want it to, well, tell the time. So most Android Wear watches include an always-on screen—no tapping, twisting or shaking required to see what time it is. With Android Wear 5.1 or higher, we have expanded this option to apps so that they can stay visible as long as you ...

One of my favorite dining experiences in sf. Looking forward to a second visit, for it to earn my fifth star. Friendly husband and wife duo run an amazing tasting menu.

My current favorite cafe in the neighborhood. Simple but tasty salads and sandwiches, made with quality ingredients. Excellent espresso pulls and pour overs.
