Sounds like a plan! and don't forget to meet Buzzy and the rest of the crazies at Grand Vin.

This is precisely the problem! A zillion great places to eat and drink, and only one vacation.

The only solution, obviously, is to come back again and again and again...and again...

I'll vouch for Alice's for Sunday brunch - we were there today and as suggested we shared the Menage a Trois - 3 different styly eggs benedict - all delicious and a beautiful presentation too as was the key lime pie - too beautiful to dog right into - we enjoyed admiring it for at least 10 minutes before devouring it! Fantastic meal!!

Just noticed you did leave out one of my must-dos though: Santiago's Bodega.

yb - i did leave that out although it is near the top of my master list.

and yes, we do have a happy hour list and a best bar stool list.

we are back to that planning vs. not planning issue. my goal is to read the list over 40 times on the flight down, then just walk around town and when we are hungry or thirsty and one of these is close by, we stop in.
