Neighborhood Eats: South Bay Lunch Fail #1

We try to get out of our comfort zone whenever we can for lunch, seeing as one can only have so many Bristol Farms sandwiches and Whole Foods salad bar tubs before feeling as though life exists only in offices and grocery stores. But this time, when we ventured far and wide, we came up […]

Neighborhood Eats: Sushi in the South Bay

Every now and then, the crew here at the office gets together for lunch – mostly in parts, never as a whole. Today, though, we were all present for once, so our boss lady decided to take us out for a proper team lunch. We have a lot of different food needs in this group: […]

Traveling Circus: Gott’s

Food is a huge thing for my family, and one of our favorites in the Napa Valley is Gott’s, in the former Taylor’s Refresher building on Hwy 128 (Main Street).

Neighborhood Eats: Work Lunches – South Bay

We’re surrounded by food, but much of it is of the chain variety: Fleming’s, Houston’s, Johnny Rockets, Noah’s Bagels, Il Fornaio. […]

…and I’m back.

So this is the new Kung Pao Kimmie: mostly food, maybe a lot of drinks, the occasional side trip into adventure, but 100% fun.

Chatter – Ep. 21 – Mar. 5, 2016

ADVENTURE. I’ve discovered, over the course of my varied and often turbulent dating life, that learning and growing together is imperative to building a healthy and long-lasting relationship. But this isn’t just about romantic love. The need for adventure and shared experiences extends to other types of relationships, and that has never been more apparent […]
