In My Belly 2011

It’s been a while since I’ve lived in the Bay Area. 2011 marks my first full year living in the East Bay since I moved away for grad school and a new career in journalism.

Beyond the crime and politics, I had a chance to write food columns for Newark Patch, the first hyperlocal news site in this city.

Newark is home to a diverse selection of food spots, from steak houses to Filipino restaurants.

I followed my heart back into broadcast news. I scored a wonderful producer gig in one of the best TV news markets in the country, San Francisco. Now, I use my weekends to explore all the yummy spots in the Bay Area. We stumbled on Taco Tuesdays at the Olitas Cantina on the Santa Cruz Wharf: $6 for two tacos and margarita. Yum!
