I hope I get to Rotolo's and maybe Pie Works (I want a pint glass!)
I wish I could get to Zocolo to try a coffee mocha (beer ice cream sundae), but it's not going to work out. I'm definitely excited for their launch though. Can't wait until their tap room opens....

I'm in on Roddy. It's going to be cold, but I think he'll get his share of targets/catches. If D. Moore can't go for OAK, Streeter is...

Good luck. :chee...

I've had mine separate twice in my life and both times I think I cooked the roux a minute or two too long before I add the trinity, and then I also didn't turn the heat down after I added the trinity, so that di...
