"I went to Staten Island, Sharon
to buy myself a mandolin.
And I saw the long white dress of love
on a storefront mannequin.
Big boats chugging back with a belly full of cars
all for something lacy.
Some girl's gonna see that dress
and crave that thing like crazy."
-Joni Mitchell, Song for Sharon, Hejira

Things to eat (mostly sweets) in San Francisco/Berkeley, California.
Bergamot or Tamarind Chile Caramels at Miette
Lemon Poppyseed Pound Cake at Tartine
Cornmeal Cherry Scones, Cheese Bread, Brioche Buns, Morning Buns, and lunchtime pizza at The Berkeley Cheeseboard
New Orleans style Iced Coffee at Blue Bottle Coffee
A good and cozy place to stay is The Inn at the Opera
The Curry Fried Chicken at Foreign Cinema is very nice, plenty for two not so hungry people.
