In a few weeks I’ll be making a trip south to San Francisco, such a great city! I’m sad to say I don’t get there nearly as often as I’d like despite the quick hop it is down the coast. I’d love more opportunities to explore its nooks and crannies, new restaurants and great shops, cafes and museums–and just stroll through its many neighborhoods.

Alas, that’s not what the agenda looks like for this next trip, it’s a power-packed couple of days for a conference. But I’m thrilled to have time to be making my first-ever visit to the destination book shop for food lovers, Omnivore Books on Food.  I have the good fortune to be a guest author there on Monday April 12, 5:30 to 6:30 pm, signing copies of Gourmet Game Night. They’re also due to have some foodie trival games on hand, so we can all test our culinary mettle for a little fun as well. It’s a free event, just show up! I’m a little humbled to see the other authors on the roster over the coming weeks: Lorna Sass, Alice Waters, Rose Levy Berenbaum. I’m so looking forward to spending time there myself. Hope to see some of you food-and-game lovers from the Bay Area!
