Another great drink from MA’velous: Stumptown Hairbender Cappuccino
We finally got to check out Ma-Velous the other day. Here are some photos from the experience. The place is swank with an eddie colla mural to complete the interior.

key: more crema = better. empty cup = not so good. Sorry about the funky anti-aliasing.

We finally got back on the bike and did a long ride last weekend. ~88 miles to Pt. Reyes Station and back.
fog in the morning in the Presidio:
fog on the golden gate bridge too, of course. It cleared up as soon as we were finished crossing.
Friend and Oakland resident Eric Smillie has a nice writeup in the New York Times regarding craft beer tastings:
I’ve only seen the ritual bike in the bay area:
This guy was selling iced coffee at sunday streets in the mission last july.
and these two were selling ritual coffee at oakland’s wonderful eat real festival last august.
There’s a whole bike storage area at the Westfield mall in San Francisco! I didn’t know that. Awesome.
went to farm:table this past weekend for a quick breakfast and coffee. the cereal and yogurt was enjoyble, the latte was pretty, and the ristretto of an espresso, while lacking some crema, was still very satisfying.
