Only a couple few more hours before I present at VMworld! I'm giving a presentation about CIM on vSphere, TEX2383 at 5:30PM, last session before the Big Party. This is my first time presenting at a real VMworld. Eeeeeek!

Went to Pro Bono last night with my sweetie and 2 industry friends. We started with their special appetizer, venison carpaccio, which was absolutely STELLAR. I've had their regular beef carpaccio, and it's excellent, but this venison number was really marvelous. Pro Bono's venison carpaccio is even better than, well, Carpaccio's in Menlo Park, and that place is terrific too. I had a really nicely done arugula salad with goat cheese. This is a rather standard dish, so the trick is execution. 5 stars on the balance. One of my friends has a severe gluten intolerance issue so she must be careful everywhere we eat out. Pro Bono made a magnificent dish for her sans gluten, and she raved like a lunatic about how terrific her duck was. One friend got a maple glazed duck, the other, duck confit. Sweetie got a shrimp pasta dish, and I got the gnocchi, which I thought was fantastic. The sauce was light and the salmon was as flavorful as it was unexpected on a gnocchi dish. Who knew? The wine was EXCELLENT. The food was EXCELLENT. The service was GLORIOUS. The best part is that their prices are quite reasonable, especially considering the high quality. There's a reason this place lasts and lasts while other restaurants on California Ave. come and go. Pro Bono's is class A Italian cuisine like my ex's Italian grandmother used to make, but without the high-tension drama and exaggerated histrionics. Pro Bono is a jewel. You can eat like a VC on an engineer's budget. I've never had less than an excellent meal here, and last night was no exception. One of the chefs came out to clear out dishes and see what we did and didn't eat. We ate EVERYTHING. Thanks Pro Bono for making me look really good to my out-of-town friends!
