I have been up in GC two weekends in a row for birthday/bridal related activities. The bridal related activity was at Lucas Farms which was beautiful, a little warm on a bright sunny day, but given all this rain, at least it was sunny. We had dinners both weekends at Tomanetti's in Oakland because it was either convenient to where we live, or wouldn't be as crowded as lake places. It is mostly American-Italian. What they call fresh pizza dough (more pan style than their thin crust) has gotten better IMHO. I still like Brenda's a little better, but it isn't bad. They have big entrees, and you are likely to go home with leftovers. We also had wings, not the best wings I have ever had, but they may be some of the best in GC. We also had a greek salad, that was chopped salad style, which isn't what I had last time I was there. I thought it had a tad bit too much dressing- I normally ask for it on the side and I forgot- but otherwise good. We also had mozarella sticks, which I thought were a pretty good darn rendition of mozz sticks and didn't seem to be just Sysco to me. They have a nice little side patio, if the weather isn't bad. Their wine selection is not broad, but we found something that we could drink. For the birthday celebration we bought out all their champagne and prosecco.

It was Aristotle who said: "Tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, and tell them what you just told them."
I am going to all-but prove to you that Brooks Robinson was the greatest defensive player ever to play baseball, at any position.

DC has the largest Salvadoran population in the US, many other Central Americans, and large Bolivian population. These countries, however, are not much known for cuisine, and even the famous foods like pupusas from El Salvador, or the breakfast tamales and spreads you get in Guatemala are not that exciting. What DC doesn’t have is a large Mexican, Argentinian, Colombian, Puerto Rican, or Peruvian population - the Latin countries known for food. Although you are seeing more and more arepas and empanadas, which means that the few Colombians, Venezuelans, Uruguayans, and Argentinians are bringing some tastes of home out to market.

According to the Department of Labor, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Minnesota, and Guam have the same minimum wage for both tipped and non-tipped employees. So, because we're talking about the effects on restaurants, let's look at San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and Las Vegas. San Francisco will be $15 an hour starting in July. Seattle is $15 an hour. Portland will be $12 starting in July. Las Vegas seems to be about $7.25 to $8.25, depending on benefits.

If you go to the Tsukiji fish market area, be prepared for a European experience with hawkers trying to lure you into their stalls for sushi. It's okay, but you may get the crappy cuts that seem to be reserved for foreigners. Still a must-do and there are plenty of good items, just make sure you eat where you want to eat and not at one of the nondescript interior stalls.
In Ginza, we found what was supposed to be the ONE rotating sushi bar in all of Ginza, Numazuko Sushi Bar. (https://www.numazuko-bar.com/) It's on the 4th or 5th floor of a building on one of the main drags and we had two outstanding meals there. We were the only non-Japanese but there was English on the menu and there are plenty of apps to help you with fish names anyhow. Everything was fresh and with the rotating bar, there is no chance that you are going to get served the apprentice's cuts. One night the server was a little slow to ask us about alcohol and the 2 adults rolled out stuffed, without booze, for $30.
We stayed at a Ryokan in Kyoto on one splurge night and they set us up with an insanely good kaiseki restaurant; the kids had shabu shabu with local Ome beef (think Kobe but in the Kyoto locale, it is supposed to be even more marbled than Kobe) while we grazed our way through course after course of little gems consisting of Ome beef or impeccably fresh fish, often with interesting accompaniments. The advice we'd gotten was to wait for Kyoto or Osaka to go all out on a meal; the value is better there.
If I was going to Japan without the younger one we took with us, definitely Ryokan experience that was more romantic than what we did. A higher end sushi than we did and at least a couple more fine dining experiences.

But I fail to see how they apply to Mr Dylan. Dylan (and I wish he'd chosen another stage name, such as Zimmerman (unlikely) or Jones (if he kept the Dylan forename; it would be very Welsh, don't you see ( like one of his namesakes, the Welsh poet, inexplicably revered). Dylan remains a vital, productive performer, unlike the performers you undboubtedly have in mind, although I have no idea why., in spite of the vocal deficits almost everyone observed, Dylan remains not merely productive but has made himself the richest musician/lyricist in the world if not in human terms then, surpassing even Herbert von Karajan, the aged former Nazi who at the time,of his death was worth a cool zillion. Even in your premises, that should be worth something).
