Does anyone have a recommendation for a good place for pies in the South Bay or Monterey Bay area? It can be a diner or a bakery that serves pie. Bonus points if it has savory pies as well like mince pies.
Does anyone have suggestions for a venue for a bridal shower in NY? It can be in the outer boroughs as well. I'm looking for a venue that's big enough for 20 to 30 people and am willing to spend up to $30 per person. Alcohol doesn't have to be involved, but it would be cheaper without it.
Some ideas that the other bridesmaids and I have been kicking around were hosting a brunch, an afternoon tea, etc. I'm living on the other side of the country so I'm unable to research the venues better. If it helps, the theme of the bridal shower is travel.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Fellow Californians! If you were going to buy your non-CA family holiday presents that represent our beautiful state, what would you buy? So far, I've thought of: Tapatio, Red Vines, Sees's chocolate, and olive oil. I would bring back wine, but I to drag my bag from plane to train to bus and it can be heavy after awhile.
It's sad that I can't bring back the mountains and our coastline back with me. :(
This may be an impossible task, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a place in the city where I can create my own six-pack of beer. The only catch is that the beer cannot be cold as I have to take them on a plane.
Does such a place exist?
I volunteered at a food bank yesterday, and as a thank you, the food bank gave me several bags weighing at the very least four pounds each of salad making material (think iceberg lettuce, four heads of romaine, mixed salad greens, and spinach) as well as six pounds of plums.
I'm at a lost as to what to do with any of this. I know the easy answer is it make lots of salad, but how long do salad greens say fresh? And, what do you do with plums other than eating them raw?
Finally, if anyone is in the Monterey County area, you're free to stop by to pick up any of this for yourself.
Where can I find these candies? I know it's really easy to make, but I have a super teeny kitchen so it's better for me to go out and find them. I live in the UES and work around Union Square, but anywhere in Manhattan would be fine.
This will be first and only (for a long time as my boyfriend and me are moving to San Francisco soon) Restaurant Week in NY. Which restaurants do you recommend? Or, to avoid at all costs? We aren't particular about the kind of food, but are looking for "that meal you must have before leaving NY."
I saw this being posted by several of the food trucks' Twitter accounts (Big Gay Ice Cream, Rickshaw) and thought I would share this with you. It's a petition against the city revoking vending permits based upon parking tickets.
The article about the proposed law: http://midtownlunch.com/2010/06/08/city-council-to-introduce-first-anti-food-truck-law/

Please sign it and hopefully you'll pass it on as well.
My boyfriend and I are staying with friends while we're visiting the city. As a thank you, we want to give our friends cupcakes for being such great hosts. We searched Yelp and it gave us eight (!!!) places with five stars. We were wondering which one is the best one to go to. I know it's vague, but we're not looking for one that has the best of a particular flavor.
This is the page we've been looking at:
In the spirit of today, does anyone know where I might find these? I'm hoping for a place that's near Union Square since that's where I work, but UES would do as well.
I'm only two months old to NY. I was wondering what's your favorite place for dinner in the East Village since my boyfriend and I heard it was a great place to get dinner. We're willing to try anything at least once. We already have been to Klong, Grand Sichuan, Ramen Setyaga, S'mac, and the multitude of Indian places on 6th St. Our price range is under $30 for the both of us. Thanks for your help!
The platos ($7.35 for carnitas or pollo asado, $7.81 for carne asada, plus $0.92 for guacamole) at Dos Toros are the kind of menu item that's more healthy in theory than in practice.
