Brunch at Bar Pilar

After a museum visit downtown, we found ourselves wanting a little nosh and I mentioned Bar Pilar. While we were both thinking burgers, it turned out that they were only serving from the brunch menu (PDF) at that time. Not...


Mulled Cider

I’m not much for holiday cooking and baking. I rarely host for any of the big holidays, and about the only thing I’ll bring to potlucks are non-holiday specific desserts. When a friend was throwing down for Thanksgiving and told...


Southern Lazy Sunday

I can’t always be bothered to take photos of the entire meal from prep to finish, especially when it isn’t my recipe! Plus it’s a crock pot meal and believe me, there’s a good six to eight hours when they...

Water tames all hairstyles, even John Mayer

John Mayer, soaking wet… …at the beach… …that is all. 😛 –Dec 2, 2015: When I first wrote this entry, I had a crush on him like woah. Based on a lot of things he’s said and done since, that...

This is a gay establishment. Owned and operated by gay people, for gay people. We reserve the right to refuse entrance or service to anyone at any time. An amusing shot from the night Will and I barely gave the...
