UPDATED: COVID-19 and Site News

While each state is enacting its own measures to reopen businesses, that means I also get to keep working from home for now.

As previously noted, all the blog posts you've been seeing for the past few weeks were on visits made before stay-at-home orders were put into effect in my area. Just a couple weeks ago, the governor extended the stay-at-home order through May 31.

All of my food adventures have been accounted for now, and that means no more new posts for a bit.

Once everything starts (slowly) getting back to normal, the food adventures I love to write about will resume.

I'll see you on the other side of this pandemic. Please stay safe.

COVID-19 and Site News

Quick update:

As you probably know, restaurants (and other public places) are suspending service or reverting to takeout-only orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

My blog posts will continue uninterrupted through at least the end of April 2020 because I had a bunch ready to go in the queue. Should this last beyond that time, you may notice a break in posting, but at least you'll likely know why that occurred.

I am otherwise being asked to work from home (at my real job) during this time. I hope everyone is otherwise doing well.

Saying Farewell to the Pacific NW

After living in the Pacific NW for 12 years, I moved back to Hawaii last November to accept a new position in the Aloha State. I know, tough decision for me, right?

But before I left, I wanted to take one last food adventure as a NW resident, going to some of my favorite spots. Unfortunately, I could only get to a select few, and I apologize if I couldn't get there one more time.
