Getting a Foot in the Door
Some of you may have noticed that I am Bay Area Blogger #13 over at Becks and Posh. The sexy lady behind Becks and Posh is Sam, who I had the pleasure of dining with last Thursday. If you read both of our blogs, you know that we are both extremely busy girls. Somehow, a miracle occurred and we both had a day off in the middle of the week (save for an evening performance for me). And where else would we go but the Slanted Door? After hearing that Sam had not eaten there since getting stuck in her pants on Valencia Street, I figured I'd use my magic powers to get us in.
She's as fabulous as I thought she'd be (and I have high expectations) and, my darlings, it was one of the better meals I've had there recently: lovely window table, dishes right on the mark (although the spicy squid was on the watery side for my taste; that dish has been kind of hit or miss lately, but the miss is still pretty good), charming server. All in all a perfect lunch with a perfect companion. To top it all off, just down the hall in the Ferry Building, one of my favorite authors was doing a book signing. I am one lucky bitch.
