Re: What's your poison?

I'm going through a whisky phase right now. Mitcher's rye on the rocks is what I gravitate towards. Also Old Potrero if it's available, because it's local and bloody excellent, or Hudson Bay.

Re: Are You Happy You Made The Move To California?

When I moved to the Central Valley - no it was the worst thing that had ever happened to me.

Re: Pizza

I don't think I have ever had mind-blowingly good pizza until I moved to San Francisco - 22 years wasted on subprime pizza I guess - so I guess I take a different stance on the use of milder cheeses...

Re: Redding, CA

Redding itself has a cool bridge, but nothing else really to speak home about. Going north into the forrests though, that's a completely different story.
