Xanh Restaurant in mountain view for diner.

2013/03/30

Xanh Restaurant is the kind of place if you worked google or Facebook you would patronize as a trendy and to be seen at place.

The blue mussels tonight were delicious, the special for tonight.

The four of us, CMD, Craig and Suzie shared everything as small plates.

Each dish was cooked to perfection. The sea bass, soft and tasty. The steak dish equally well cooked.

Expensive but worth the trip.

CMD’s review:

A great restaurant find. Everything we ordered was great – coconut rice, garlic noodles, shaking beef, beef shortribs, Banh Xeo, Blue mussels above, Chilean sea bass in banana leaf. Shared among the 4 of us: Tom and I, my brother Craig and sister-in-law Suzie. A great date night restaurant.

Xanh Restaurant mountain view for Alla’s fairwell

2013/03/29

Alla’s last day at electric cloud is today.

Xanh Restaurant in mountain view was a great choice for lunch. The 12.99 lunch buffet price is a good deal considering the large selection much of which is vegetarian.

Neil had the company pay for the meal. Very generous.

Last PSL match of the year

2013/03/24

Today was the last PSL regular season match for the year.

Alex did a great job and it is always good to see Stephen on the field.

The match was simple, the men really had a good time playing. Nice to see that every once in a while.

Earthquakes vs Sounders on a one to nothing win for the home team

2013/03/23

This was a great match to see. Wondo with one goal made the difference for the earthquakes win against the Seattle Sounders.

Rob C and I sat in a section with the players wives. Lots of bling and great looking women. Somewhat distracting from the game.

Boloramo did a great job in the center. The players had a great time too I think.

Oskar Blues Longmont Restaurant in Colorado

The corned beef was the special. Great to see the Silar again. Big year last year for the silars, three weddings! Mark, they left you out of the zoo? The beer was great after a day of skiing at Winter Park.

— with Don and Debbie Silar and Mark Z and DTK at Oskar Blues Longmont Restaurant.

There were lots of stories and laughing. We had such a good time.
