By the Way ...

I forgot to mention this interesting little side note in my blog about Tazo's sneak-preview, media-only dinner on Monday night (which also happened to be Cinco de Mayo)...

We arrived a little early and were sipping some tea-infused cocktails when Chef "Goose" Sorensen of Solera appeared suddenly behind the bar, looking somewhat harrassed. "I need some extra help back there," he informed our hosts. "Pretty much my entire staff is cruising Federal right now."

Still, the dinner turned out wonderfully, considering the lack of warm bodies in the back to get the food out those kitchen doors. -- Amber Taufen
