Funniest Thing a Server Said to You

Perhaps she wanted you to accept the incorrect dish, because she feard what the cook would do, if she had to request he prepare a replacement dish.

Leaving a Massive Tip

Here's one more to Helena's list, as to when to leave a generous tip:

# 7 ) If by chance you notice Spring131 is seated at the table next to you, please leave an extra tip for her waiter. God knows, the waiter definetely earned it !!

Heck, if you see Spring131 ANYWHERE in the restaurant, please increase your tip. Come on CHers, if we all chip in just a LITTLE in said situations, we can make a BIG difference.

Tierra Mojada

I have got to try this. sounds fantastic with all the fresh ingredients.

A few weeks ago, I had quite a few ripe peaches, so decided to puree them (after peeling) & freeze.... with the plan of using them in smoothies.

As I was "slaving" in the kitchen, peeling & pureeing, decided I'd reward myself with a drink.... margarita mix (tequila already in it) with the fresh peach puree. Wow, was it good.

btw- if you want to freeze peach puree, for every cup of sliced fruit, add 1 Tablespoon sugar & 3/4 teaspoon ever fresh or fruit fresh . then puree & freeze.

Cake Decorating Classes in SF?

Michael's Arts & Crafts - there isn't one in SF, but closest is Emeryville or San Mateo.
Cost of "Wilton's Cake Decorating Class" is VERY reasonable, so nothing to loose !

Chilaquiles Yum-oooh! 5 Cheese, Rotisserie Chicken, Black Beans & Corn Kernels, Red Enchilada Sauce, EVOO & Pipicha herb.

I think Chowhound should add the following 2 words to their list of profanity/words that are not acceptable on this site:

1) Yum-oooh

Drunk on Recycling

We're talking 200 cups here, folks. Most people don't own that many cups, nor room to store them. so BYOC sounds good to me.

has nothing to do with the host being 'lazy'.

per the orginal thread:
“If we can save from throwing away 200 barely-used plastic cups (and save me from entering the turgid Smart&Final) well, then, Sweet Jesus, let’s do it!”

A little cafe just opened up on 1st Street in Gilroy. But I can't seem to find it.
