in appetizers, bar, blogging, party

Hey guys! I’m in the midst of a switch over from to a self-hosted site ( so apologies if this post ends up being wonky, or repeated several times.

Last night was actually more about my other blogging platform – Tumblr – where Thick Dumpling Skin lives. Abe and I were invited to a West Coast party they were hosting. I gobbled down a few snacks beforehand…


…then headed over to Palihouse.


We were early, so I checked out the rest of the Courtyard Brasserie space.



The event took place in the lobby bar…


…which quickly filled up:


I ate one of every passed hors d’oeuvres – beef short rib…


…veggie quesadilla…


…and a Chicken Skewer…


…plus, snacks galore!


There were nibbles everywhere…


Jelly Belly beans


…Rice Cracker/Wasabi Peanut mix, Swedish fish…


…chocolate-covered caramels (there were malt balls too) and nuts…


Filled an additional napkin, and also snagged some Olives at the bar.

Back home, balanced all that sugar out with a cup of miso, while I tried to figure out my new blog home…


…still trying to make sense of it! In the meantime, start pointing your browsers/bookmarks over to (it may not be live on your browser yet so check again later) – sign up for the new email list, RSS feeds, and update any blogroll links!
