I wrote a post on Tuesday at KQED's Bay Area Bites detailing my first impressions of SPQR. I don't often do formal restaurant reviews, so this one is called "SPQR: A preliminary report." In the words that I used on my flickr page, "Go. Go Now." I have a long history with A16, so the fact that I had to try SPQR within days of its opening probably isn't a surprise.
Speaking of Flickr, I've been slowly going through the Vietnam trip photos and posting a couple a day. The photo above is one that I posted this week. Nine months after the trip, I am finally feeling like I can start to digest parts of it and talk about it. It took that long to not be completely overwhelmed by that amazing trip. So I've been writing a small amount about my impressions with the photos. You can see it all in the Vietnam Collection of my Flickr. You can subscribe to a feed of my Flickr photos using this link.
Also, if you read this site through an RSS reader, you may not notice the site's new look. I am happy to have new digs. Thanks for everyone who weighed in months ago about the new look. I chose a design that will allow me to swap photos in and out of the banner fairly easily.
