this week's review: paella!

went to a place called tapas garden on the beach for this week's review. loved the paella, and was even able to sit outside, in september, without dying of heat stroke. here is the link.

i made paella a few weeks ago, and i think i liked mine better, but this was good. and they had some other interesting things going on.

is this thing still on?

most of my blog posts seem to start with an excuse as to why it has been so long since my last blog post. but this time, its a really good one. i have another blog, one for work. and i have a new job, one that modestly overlaps with what i was doing here. which is good and bad. good because my job is now related to my hobby. bad because i'm now always doing it, and i am still trying to figure out where the divide is. like, is it a problem if i write a blog post on osteria in philadelphia, which i totally should have done and now am annoyed with myself because i didn't? or frasca in boulder, which, i mean, ditto. and then ajax in aspen was a different issue, because i was actually sort of doing work while i was in aspen. so can i post something that is quasi work-related on my personal blog?

if you didn't know, my job is to write about eating now, so writing about eating as a hobby is sort of a gray area. so i don't know.

anyway, i think i will start posting links to the stories i write for the paper here, in case anyone here sees it that isn't in our coverage area. and here is one i did this week about new gluten-free restaurants in the bay area.
