Found a Game of Thrones-themed menu at Charcoal Bar tonight. Liked the Mother of Dragons and loved the company but, for the price point, it was a shadow of Aviary/The Office.

Rug on loan from Humboldt House while I make a decision. I love the detail but I’m not sure of I should hold out for a bigger version that goes all the way under the bed. Any strong opinions?



The forests are very old. The forests are older than man. They have seen the gods die. And man is naked in a forest of dust, dry leaves and roads covered with leaves and dust.

My favorite kind of Saturday night involves Coalfire take-out, homemade salad and dessert, and the ability to wander between the apartment and the back deck comfortably. With or without a baby in-hand (no shortage of those).
Dessert is a favorite salty/sweet concoction. You make a giant oatmeal cookie then crumble it. Then layer it with slightly sweetened strawberries and fresh whipped cream (sweeten a bit with powdered sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract). The oatmeal crust for Momofuku’s Crack Pie works beautifully as your cookie and I doubled the recipe to get another layer out of it.
