Pork, Socks, and Birkenstocks

I took this after Dave's party at Akebono II, August of 08. Robert is having one great conversation with Phil and Jenny. He even hammed it up for the camera. He was off to the Fancy Food Show in SF that weekend.
I am sure Doreen is gonna love this photo...but Robert is behind her having yet another great conversation with his "date" at our pig roast last September.

Here, Doreen is explaining the fine art of pork sandwiches and condiments. Robert is actually interested in such topics.
Robert, old friend, we will miss you. I am happy you didn't have to suffer long with cancer. You were the first "chowish" friend I met here in Sac...and it was at chowhound.com on the CA board. We had lots of great dinners and lunches together....and ended up making many other chowish friendships. We'll miss your knowledge of food and wine, your delightful sense of humor, your musicianship, and your big heart...oh and Dave will totally miss your ultra-liberal views...and your fashion sense, ie., socks and birkenstocks.

what a great send off! Sounds like someone I would have very much liked.

I've met Doreen! Fun to see her here.

Ck my blog - I went to Samovar Tea House in SF today and loved it. Have you been? We must get together and chow down when I'm in Sac sometime! I love good food (and who the heck doesn't?).
