Hey there, y'all!
Happy one year anniversary to QDTG from me to you! So I launched QDTG a year ago, and what a year it has been - it's been totally amazing & wonderful. I'm so grateful to all of you for the business you have given me and the referrals and the encouragement. Thank you all so very much. So guess what I'm going to do? HAVE A SALE! Yes, that's right, a SALE! Meals are $50 each this week - a $5 savings - who doesn't love a sale? ENJOY!
With our daughter away at overnight camp, we have a lot of free time on our hands on the weekends. One of our favorite things to do is take bike ride around SF. It's really fun and it makes us feel really free and young and healthy, which is so novel at our advanced age. And you get to eat a lot while you ride because you need the energy, or at least that's what I tell myself. We did the requisite bike down Valencia Street, which is nice because the lights are timed so the cars can't drive too fast down there. Then we made a stop in Hayes Valley for some coffee and some staring, I mean people watching. Seriously, I could sit on a bench all day and stare at people. There's just so much to look at. One thing I noticed was that everyone was eating sandwiches at that park on Octavia Street. I don't know where they were getting them from - do you? They looked so good, and I was ready to go find one when my husband Dan was like, let's go to Tony's Pizza in North Beach and get a slice. So we hightailed it over there. Do you want to see me bike fast? Dangle a slice of really good Tony's pizza in front of me, and I will fly like the wind down Polk street over to Pacific and then down an alley and then onto Stockton. There's no need to ever eat pizza anywhere else in SF. And you don't need to sit down in the restaurant. Go to the slice house next door and chomp down on a hot & crispy & tasty slice whilst sitting in the parklet outside. They always have a white pizza, which is my fave - no red sauce - just cheese and more cheese and maybe some veggies thrown on there. So. Freakin. Good. Just when we were about to fall into a Tony's pizza coma, we biked up to Coit Tower and burned it off, thank God. Then we decided to meander home and took a cool route (thank you Google Maps) via the Embarcadero, China Basin, Dog Patch, a little bit of Bayview, the Alemany Farmer's Market and back up into Bernal. We made a few pit stops along the way and with the afternoon winds in full force, it was an epic journey back to our house. I have to say that there's no easy way to get back home. It's up on a hill so no matter which way you go, you're kind of doomed.
I'm thinking of offering Friday night meals once in a while. What do you think? Would this interest you? Kind of like a shabbat meal, but you don't have to be Jewish to order it, of course. Like, a roasted whole chicken and a few side dishes - maybe I'd even throw in a challah. I would love to hear back from you and get your thoughts so please reach out to me and let me know what you think about this new idea.
Have a great week and happy QDTG anniversary!
