Where would you have your last meal on earth? I love Thai food, and the best place in town is Ozone on Polk & Sutter. I'd order Pla Dook Phoo (fried catfish). It's amazing.
Where do you get your local gossip? I work in advertising, so I always check out what's happening within the industry on The San Francisco Egotist. Otherwise I'm reading my buddy Drew Hoolhorst's blog.
Where's your secret spot? Crossroads Cafe is my jam. They've got great food (I recommend the fritatta), a beautiful patio, and great vibe. I love this spot.
What's your favorite under-the-radar SF restaurant? Gourmet Carousel on California and Pine is amazing and cheap. I used to live off the salt and pepper pork spare ribs.
Where do you go to relax and get away from it all? I'm on the road a lot and a total homebody, so when I want to relax I stay home. I love my apartment.
What's your favorite SF institution? Tonga Room. The place is magical. Scorpion bowls, a lagoon, live music, and fake rain. Tonga Room has it all.
What do you get obsessive about here in SF? WORK! I obsess over my job and I wouldn't have it any other way.
What would you change about SF? The weather! It's soooo cold here. I grew up in Southern California, and even though I've been in SF for seven years now, I've never been able to get over how cold it is here. Each street in SF is basically a giant wind tunnel and that gets frustrating at times.
I just want to go outside in shorts and flip flops.
