San Fran, OK · I had an in­ter­est­ing Fri­day, up and down the Penin­su­la and with lots of tasty fla­vors ...
Sunbeams: Writhing Like a Vast, Salted Slug Edition · [Edi­to­ri­al note: I’ve got­ten a bit of push­back on Sun­beams, from a promi­nent jour­nal­ist and my Mom among oth­er­s. Fair enough, I think the Sunbloggin’ ecosys­tem has had the nec­es­sary leg up.
