Bob’s Donut and Pastry Shop

>> Friday, January 28, 2011

Donuts scare me a little bit. Yes they scare me. I think it started in high school when one of my teachers told me it’s one of the worst things you can possibly put in your body. I believed him, and still do for the most part. So if and when I ever do go and get donuts with you, know that it’s rare. But also know that it’s quite a treat for me too.

There's really nothing better than a fresh donut right out of the fryer. It’s a lovely concoction of fried sweet goodness piping hot with perfection. I don’t know about you, but part of me really does light up and become all childlike at the donut shop.

The Taco Shop at Underdog’s

I don’t drink very often, but I guess that’s because I just turned legal a little while ago. Plus it never really appealed to me that much before. I think the taste of alcohol is still developing on my palette. So when a few friends back from school for the winter decided to go for a few drinks, I figured I’d sample some more. Never hurts to try something once right? Plus it was fun getting carded for the first time and hearing stories from everyone.

For beverages of the evening I decided to go for whatever they had on tap. This is namely due to my lack of knowledge in beer and not wanting to make the nice waitress annoyed. I went with a Stella Artois which actually wasn’t bad since I’ve only tasted a few beers so far. Not too strong for my taste and it went well with the food we ordered. Not feeling too hungry I tried a little of what everyone ordered.

Art’s CafĂ©

>> Monday, January 17, 2011

If there was a definition for hole in the wall joint, this place would be it. This cozy little cafe is tucked away on a very busy Irving street in the inner Sunset. At first glance most people would definitely pass by this narrow room. There’s literally just enough space for the grill and a long counter that stretches the length of the place. Luckily when I went here for lunch with a friend two seats were open on the very end of the counter. Be sure to hang your coat up on the wall behind you otherwise you‘ll probably be bumping the person next to you. Both my buddy and I are rather skinny fellas so the shaky stools were actually kind of fun to sit on.

As for the food Art’s is a mix of American breakfast food with some Korean influences. Since it was lunch time and I wasn’t feeling an omelet I decided to go with the Beef Bi Bim Bop. I’ve had my share of Bi Bim Bop in the past and it’s grown to become one of my favorite Korean dishes. Considering the location I’d say the Bi Bim Bop was surprisingly good. My bowl came with all the normal fixings of veggies: carrots, sprouts, spinach, and zucchinis. Though I do wish I got more rice, the meat made up for the lack of it. Be sure to use the specially made barbeque hot sauce or else it’ll break the owner’s heart. She even glanced in my bowl to make sure I tried some of the meat with it. Personally I would like the sauce to be a little spicier so there’d be more of a kick to it. It was a decent bowl of Bi Bim Bop if I do say so myself.

Why Blogger?

>> Wednesday, January 12, 2011

I find it funny when people ask me about blogging. Usually it’ll be tips on writing, ideas for content, but it’s mostly “can you tweak the code to do this and that” requests. It never gets old and it’s only natural for writers to talk to one another. That is how writers grow and become better over time after all.

With the start of the New Year far into the month, it seemed fitting to say exactly why I still blog. What makes it so appealing that I bother to post things up even after two years of doing this thing? Here’s how the story starts.

So why did I choose blogger? What makes blogger so special out of all the other blogging hosts? First off, I am not against any blogging network or social platform. I think each one caters to a specific type of writer. Each one is able to fulfill certain needs and that’s why people use that particular one. I chose blogger for a few reasons.

One, it’s free. I really like the design aspects of WordPress and TypePad in particular. But those two, also in particular, cost money in order to get the most out of them. I enjoy being able to change the format and design to specific degrees. I didn’t feel as if I could get that out of those two in particular.

Blogging for 2011

>> Friday, January 7, 2011

And so it begins. Change is in the air with the coming of the New Year. I am a tad late on updates at the moment, but I do promise some new posts coming very soon. For the most part this year has been good to me and has brought many new opportunities. There were a lot of unforgettable moments such as the Giants winning the series (still my top choice by far). The New Year marks the chance to start from scratch once again and to wipe the slate clean.

Nevertheless, here at LT &C we’re still going to continue what we do best. We’ll be rolling out plenty of new ideas very soon. So stay tuned for an even better site in 2011.
