A passion for food + fashion

Happy Green Day!

How many moves this Buena Vista pint glass has survived I cannot recall, but I used to live on Filbert/Larkin up the hill from this fine tourist establishment in San Francisco many moons ago. My partners in crime, Rick and Diane, and I used to hop the cable car on Hyde late night down to the wharf and drink Irish coffees, the Buena Vista’s claim to fame. The glass remains my favorite—if kitschy—vessel for enjoying a pint of Guinness. Tonight my “mick” husband and I will be toasting St. Patty’s Day with a Guinness, while we ponder the following question: Does the Guinness really taste better in Ireland? (The answer is: maybe.)

For thoughts on what to cook tonight, check out bonappetit.com. They have a ton of ideas from corned beef to be-shamrocked cupcakes to modern Irish comfort food. Happy St Patrick’s Day!
