a tribute to my san francisco

3/4 oz local politics
1/4 oz public policy
1/4 oz disaster preparedness
1/2 oz alamo square

Shake over neighborhood dives & venues, strain into a chilled cocktail dress, garnish with a sprig of gov 2.0, and serve.

Open season on Politics

My dear friend John Avalos, who is running for District 11 Supervisor in the coming year, and his beautiful family celebrated his housewarming last night. It was warm. And very housey. As I drove up in my jeep (a rare occasion, this driving) and found parking near the address (an even rarer occasion, this parking), I spotted the correct house before even looking at the number - or the neighbors and friends congregating outside - because of how fitting of the family it was. A little funky, a little unexpected, and mostly exactly what you'd imagine it to be. In other words, perfect.

Congratulations John & Karen, you guys deserve everything that's best and warmest for you and your kids. If this full house is any indication of your future success and the commitment of all the people that love you dearly, then we're looking pretty good for next year.
