    Radio silence – at least in Swan Fungus lore – is typically a sign of bad news. Lucky for you (and me!) this most recent stretch of noiselessness was due to my traveling back East for Thanksgiving. I was able to take a nice long break from life in LA before a new work gig starts up on Monday to spend time with family and friends. […]

    I survived my trip to Vegas last week. Barely. I had hoped to spend a day relaxing in my king-sized bed overlooking the Strip, blogging about my (mis)adventures while snacking on some room service. Such is Vegas.

If you’ve not read one of these […]

    The 2015 incarnation of Dinner Club (neè Dinner Club For Day People) is currently 2-for-2 when it comes to planning and executing club meetings. If we can successful complete November’s planned meal I think that will tie our longest streak since the club started back in 2011. We did not come out in full force last week, as both Maryn and Louise were tied […]

    Shortly after I moved to Los Angeles my roommates birthed the idea of a monthly dinner club. It was 2007, and I think it was Sari who suggested the name “Dinner Club For Day People.” The idea was that once a month a group of friends would go out to eat, and at each meal one member of the group was allowed to invite a “Day Person” […]
