Thanksgiving afternoon brunch in OC

Thanks all! We've decided to do the Montage in Laguna Beach. $110/person (same as the Ritz buffet, but they stop serving at 3:30, and the Montage seats until 5:00). Both do not include champagne (ouch!). I think both would be spectacular!
Will post to give reviews!!

Thanksgiving afternoon brunch in OC

Group of 4 adults looking for Thanksgiving afternoon/dinner brunch ideas.
Last year, we did the St. Regis, and were extremely underwhelmed. We had been there prior and had a great brunch experience, but they dropped the ball last year.
Looked into the Ritz, but it is a menu and not buffet, which we would prefer.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

What came first... the cheese or the sweet?

Which is the most common and/or preferred?
Should I serve a cheese platter and then a sweet dessert?
Or sweet and then cheese?

Food trucks: which ones are really good and which ones are just fads

Although they are pricey, the lobster rolls from Sam's Chowdermobile... super yummy and come in 2 sizes!

Watching the sunset over the water in the SF Bay Area

Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay for sure!
The only bummer is that they do not take reservations for the outside area, and it's often very crowded.
Good food - delicious lobster rolls, fantastic grilled mahi sandwich.

Good crock pot recipes?

My co-workers and I are doing "Crock pot week" and I'm Tuesday. I haven't used one in years, and don't have any better-than-average recipes. Any good thoughts? I'd prefer yummy and easy, but on the cheaper side. (I'm a teacher!) Thanks in advance!

Where to buy tajarin pasta (I'm in HMB...)

I love tajarin pasta - looking for a place to buy some fresh (or really good dry). I don't mind driving a bit, but have looked around HMB and can't find any. I know I could make some, but... not really the homemade pasta type! Thanks.

Best restaurant in Portland??

Thanks, yes, perhaps I was not specific enough. I'm just looking for a really good restaurant that is different than a standard Ruth's Chris or something. We all love good food, but would say we are on the safer side of cuisine... nice steaks, good seafood, etc...

II'll be in Portland for a few days around the holidays. I'd like to have one terrific dinner out with my family (sans children!) Any suggestions? Money not really a factor. Thanks in advance!

As a few people mentioned... Half Moon Bay (a ltitle bit of a drive, but a beautiful one) has THE BEST fish tacos at Flying Fish grill.

Thanks Robert - checked out SPQR's brunch - looks faboo!
Thanks for taking the time to recommend something new to me! I'm in HMB, and am not all that familiar with SF restaurants.

Sat breakfast between SD airport and Oceanside

I am flying into San Diego on Sat morning. I'd like to get a nice breakfast in between getting my rental car at the airport and driving to Oceanside. Just looking for something better than random crap off the freeway!

Marinating chicken in a vinegar based dressing for how long?

I recently heard that one should not marinate chicken in a vinegar-based dressing (I usually use Annie's Goddess dressing) for longer than 1/2 hour. I can't remember why. Does anyone know? What's up?
