I am so proud of my very good friend, Kristian. I met him while working at City Beach in Fremont, CA when I was a bartender back in 2006 and he became my boss. He and I started the UFC PPV showings there, built this unbreakable relationship, have since parted ways professionally but we have always supported each other in everything the other sought out to do. I am so glad he is finally going to have his own spot because every restaurant he has touched exponentially improved. I cannot wait to walk through the doors of Dirty Water and be one of its best customers, regulars and supporters. Congratulations on the below article on Eater.com that is brought to you by Rose Garrett.
Kristian Cosentino knows his stuff, and the former Press Club GM and self-described beverage geek is looking to flex his knowledge with an ambitious new project. After plotting a new space for years, Cosentino is in the process of establishing Dirty Water, a drinking mecca on Market Street that will showcase Cosentino's passion for the best of everything, from wine and beer to hard-to-get spirits.
The planned space will occupy 8,600 square feet on Market between Van Ness and 11th. Although the buildout has yet to begin, Cosentino says his plan is to install a 150-foot bar and create three distinct lounge spaces, as well as putting in communal tables and smaller six-tops. A streamlined food menu will be on offer, but the focus will be on drinking: each dish will have drink-pairing suggestions, to better show off the impressive beverage list. <<<Read more>>>
As a Travel Agent and a Concierge for one of the best hotels at Fisherman's Wharf, I should have a TripAdvisor profile, right? I stopped Yelp-ing (7 years Elite status, btw) because I wanted most of my content on my blog but now I'm thinking the more users can see that I have experience via many sites, the better. So let's try this.
On Tripadvisor... A segway? That's for lazy people and Paul Blart, right?
Melanie, our Tour Guide, did crack jokes that Americans are lazy but her jokes
won't stop there so keep up! This was my first segway tour and I brought along
a dear friend who was also a first-timer. We arrived 15 minutes early, as
instructed, with our close-toed shoes and small bags, checked in …
The Pennsylvania native knew a few of my colleagues. During a trip to check out the opening operations of a brewery in Waikiki that I was invited to while in Maui, my business partner suggested we go to the Top of Waikiki and see his friend, Jennifer. We enjoyed an amazing view and tasty cocktails on the deck of SKY Waikiki, then headed …
Hayward to Santa Cruz, brunch, Santa Cruz to Hayward. Nap,
gym session and finish packing. This One Busy Bee was ready to board a
Southwest flight from Oakland to San Diego to catch my first Holland AmericaLine cruise to Mexico. My friend, Catherine, arrived. We chit chatted, got my
brown leather couch ready for her brief overnight stay and attempted to go to
sleep. Unfortunately, I couldn’t relax
With very sleepy eyes, my Sims on the FreePlay version were
all occupied for well after I left for the airport at 4 AM, I was all up to
date on social media, made my posts for my several social media accounts (ex: Facebook) and my
email has been checked. This is why I typically do not go to the gym in the
evening. My body is being told to get the day started. So, I didn’t sleep at
We were on time on hitting the road at 4 AM. It was a short
drive to the 98th Street exit near the Oakland Airport and was able
