Grilling with Co-Workers

My new work schedule on weekends allowed me to check out my co-worker’s BBQ in San Jose.

Carne asada on the grill and a Cosmo in my hand.

This was the first 80-degree day that I enjoyed this summer. Fog and drizzle have me bundling up in hoodies in Daly City.

We sipped margaritas and joked around with his family. It was also a pleasure to chill with my newsroom colleagues, off the clock.

I was impressed with all the tasty meat dishes! Yummy sausages, grilled chicken and more. I needed to run off all the calories the next day.

New Eritrea

My first taste of Ethiopian food was at the Blue Nile in Berkeley. I had so many lovely meals there with friends from Cal and beyond. I was so sad when I heard they were closing it down.

Thanks to my Medill buddy Sara, I discovered my new favorite Bay Area spot for Ethiopian food. New Eritrea is on Irving Street and it’s in her ‘hood. We tried it our after a visit to the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.
