It was Bay to Breakers 2013, but we went across the bay, dressed normally, to get coffee and bread at The Mill.
Above: loaves of bread on wire racks.
The cappuccino made with four barrel coffee in a nuova point cup was enjoyable. rosetta of the day: heart
nice interior with natural light
their toast was great. cinnamon and sugar and butter on a sourdough country loaf. thick, chewy, robust crust.
mmm, delicious bread. dancing food prep dude was into the music.

another gorgeous saturday in Oakland:
I stopped by Oaklandish to drop off some Antietam Designs earrings. They were working on getting their Manifesto collab bike display up in the window. Then I visited Sweet Bar at 24th and Broadway; I’d been meaning to stop by for quite some time now. I picked up the Strawberry Rhubarb Polenta upside-down cake. Delicious.

January’s 2012 Homebrew Dinner hosted by Eating About Beer was another great evening of good food, good brews and good company.
I arrived early to take photos of the set-up. Erin’s place in San Francisco had beautiful natural light and nice floral arrangements.
And a big dictionary.

This sauce was for the Yakitori
There is an equal amount of beer in bottles and in kegs these days
homemade pickled mangoes
They have a lever that opens the front door. What are these called? The internet isn’t helping me.
Yakitori and dipping sauce. Chicken hearts and “regular” chicken too.
Cast iron coming out of the oven
Guests await more food and beer

This summer’s Eating about Beer Summer Homebrew Potluck was hosted at the Humanist Hall this past September. It was a festive event, but I was struck by how simple, peaceful, and colorful scenes were in the venue.
Proceeds went to the Alameda Point Collaborative.

there’s a little kitchen at the Humanist hall, which maintained the same bright, solid colors of the rest of the venue.
