Teaset
Yeah, I like a hot doppio after dinner, and a café con leche around 10ish, but why ruin an absolutely impeccable - potentially colombian - coffee bean, freshly ground to the perfect grade, pressed through an italian coffee maker with the utmost pressure into a preheated tiny cup with skim milk? Or even worse: with soy? Allright, I won’t go there, freedom of choice and all, but call me traditional or even backwards, I like coffee the way the southern europeans do it, and they are pretty much the inventors of the stuff we generally buy at either of the ubiquitous coffee joints…
So how about tea? Chinese Ooolong? Japanese Sencha? Anybody? Allright, be patient, you’ll love it (especially after you understand how healthy it is), it’s also pretty much the closest you can get to the qualities that wine portaits - unfortunately not just in flavor, bouquet, aroma, color, but also in price - and as with wine, you need the proper container - shall I dare say cup - to enjoy it…

OGIO ShlingOK, I must admit, I suck at hitting a tiny white ball 500 yards down meticulously groomed lawns into a tiny hole, but nevertheless was out with the gang this weekend.

So I got the old stand bag out of the garage, and headed out to the links with the boys. I said it earlier, it was hot here this week end, and whereas hot can be very nice, at the beach or in the pool, a nice Cuba Libre in hand, hot on the fairway is not necessarily my idea of fun. Especially not when you are lugging around 13 clubs, three dozen balls (I said I suck…) and the largest bottle of Fiji available.

Here is the problem: My old bag… off an on and off and on and off and on and it was not funny. So I spent the afternoon looking for a new bag, and I believe I have found it…

ecreameryHmm, Hmmmmmmmmmm,
I’m so sorry Ben & Jerry’s, but your days are over (well, at least for me…). It was hot in the bay area this week end and I was invited to an ice cream tasting… Hmm, ice cream tasting? I was not really excited, but was I in for a surprise…
Ever had artisinal dolcé? Well, neither had I, but from now on ecreamery is on the top of my shopping list.

T-ShirtYeah, yeah, yeah… T-shirts have been around for ever and the surge in ‘designer’ T’s has been going on for a while as well, but I’m getting bored quickly, so why not escape the ‘let-me-see-how-weird-the-graphics-can-get’ trend and show off your smarts?
If you do feel like it (finally!), then you should see what www.sharpastoast.com could provide to support that feeling… Cute as a button site, witty and smart!

Boulderado no more…

BoulderThe hotel Boulderado - I have been told - is the place to stay in Boulder. Charm, location, style… People!!! What have you been taking??? Unless you subscribe to Laura Ashley and the style that comes with that, the place is nothing for you. I had to turn out the lights when I walked into the room…

But there is hope! I did not experience it myself yet - with the exception of the bar and the free wireless - but since a few month’s there is the St Julien Hotel & Spa: nature meets nurture and simplicity meets style.

The kitchenI had a quick stop in Boulder yesterday, where I met with Josh Spear - he is always so much fun to hang out with - anyway, looking for something light (it was 105 degrees at 8P!!!) we headed to The Kitchen. And was I amazed… I know Boulder as the college town it usually is, but this time round was very different: the city was empty - with the exception of the neverending tourists that go through the city - so The Kitchen was wonderful place for a calm evening.
