Ha - my reference from earlier this morning was from the old '80's comedy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_Strangers_(TV_series)

My husband joked we should call ourselves, "Randonnerds."

Story
Introduction
I lead a pretty blessed life! I live in berkeley where weather is always temporate and nature, organic produce, and a stimulating intellectual and spiritual life is highly accessible. I am a college administrator now, concerned with my school's accreditation progress, though I started out in the tech industry first as a yield engineer and later as a strategy consultant.

I love riding and tinkering with my bikes, and recently developed a fondness for indoor climbing. Reading, photography, and seeking out yummy vegan food are some of my other hobbies

A very cozy place with super friendly cooks/staff. I love their split pea soup, egyptian wraps, and the super veggie burritos! Cost per person should be lower for most people, as I tend to eat more than most

This is by far my favorite burger joint. I love all their food wrapped in blanched collards. The mac-n-cheese is pretty amazing, but my favorite has to be the Einstein burrito. Love this place!

I have been going to Long Life Vege House for more than 10 years and have seen 3 changes of ownership. But through the changes the restaurant remains a constant--reliably tasty and good-portioned food, and fast and friendly service. Vegetarian lunch specials at $6 (tips included) that include a big plate of entree and rice, a bowl of hot and sour soup (great here!), and a spring roll is perhaps the best deal in town

I have been going to flacos for 6-7 years, when it was only a food stand at the farmers' market (the food stand still operates at the market, even after the restaurant opened). The food is so good, that we catered from this place for our wedding. I always send or take my friends there, and no one was ever disappointed. I like everything on the menu, but my favorite has to be the tamales. The flavors are exceptional!
