Great deal at Yankee Pier in Larkspur

I just wanted to share this great deal at Yankee Pier in Larkspur we had last Saturday. They are offering 1 dollar oysters and 2 dollar beers. I think we ordered 86 oysters and they were super fresh and very tasty.

We also had Fish and Chips and blue cheese wedge salad-we sat on the deck and had a great afternoon.
This special deal is for Sat and Sun-check out their website!!!

Olive Oil ?????

I have read so many bad stories about olive oil being a mixture of different oils. One bad story is that there is no law about oil processed in Turkey and then shipped and packaged to Italy and then the olive oil can say product of Italy.
Maybe a good bet would be buying from a California oil company that produces fresh, small batches.

Long Beach area......what restaurants are the must go to?

I think Bono's is very good-I have been there several times and enjoyed it very much. I also like Le Creperie which is casual but very quaint-both are on 2nd Street in Belmont Shores.

Tavern at Lark Creek: really good

I want to eat there soon as I heard it was good. I also love Picco down the street-it is my favorite Marin restaurant.

Dinosaur BBQ

I'd say it is worth the trip!

Rice Bran Oil

Try Commodities Natural. You might want to order a bigger quantity from might be cheaper.
Rice Oil is perfect for all fried goodies as it is super healthy!
