Baila! Baila!

This video isn't new, and I'm sure some of you have come across this already. It's the dancing merengue dog from Chile.

2010 US Open at Pebble Beach

If you're one of the lucky tens of thousands of people headed out to Pebble, check out my story on dressing for the Open. You can also get a glimpse of what's being sold inside the 30,000-sq foot merchandise pavilion.

Food, Wine Galore!

Can't believe it's the third day of the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival. Yesterday was a super busy day. Covered the Stella Artois and "Top Chef" lunches as well as the Thomas Keller/Charlie Trotter and Sir Peter Michael dinners. Then I reported on the Patron's where the chefs come and play, eat and share recipes.

More posts to come, as well as pictures and videos.

Just got back from the Lexus Grand Tasting where 5,500 people packed into a 60,000-square foot tent to eat, drink and be merry. Tonight, is the Grande Finale dinner as well as a tribute dinner to Jacques Pepin.

Pebble Beach Food & Wine is Here!!!

It's the return of one of my favorite events of the year, the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival. Tonight is the Opening Night Reception at Spanish Bay...and it's serving up appetizers for what's to come these next four days. Food, wine, fun all for a great cause.

Went to the top-secret private Founders' dinner last night in Carmel Highlands...where vintage magnums of Henri Jayer were poured. I was in the presence of a flight of burgundies worth about $300,000. Did I mention that Thomas Keller of The French Laundry was cooking?

Stay tuned for more posts, pics and video. Have a craving...follow me on Twitter @MayChow

Random List Part Deux

Things I don't like to hear/see while standing in line at the grocery store:

1. "Can you ring these up separately?" even better..."Can I get three separate receipts?"
2. Someone who takes out his/her checkbook after all the items are rung up
3. "Can I get six cartoons of __ cigarettes?...they're locked up."
4. "Manager's key on six...override please."
5. Shopping cart filled to the brim, when I all I have is a banana. (Thanks for not letting me go in front of you.)

A Random List

Things I don't like driving behind:

1. Bad (slow, indecisive, habitual brakers, non-blinkers) drivers
2. Minivans
3. 4x4 trucks with 8 tires
4. Truck beds loaded with stuff, junk and an office chair with wheels sitting precariously on top of all the stuff
5. People who decide to "wash" their windshields every 5 minutes

"Bacon is good for me..."

For someone who's never had bacon ever -- I find this so enjoyable. Especially the riff "definitely no cheese in a can" and "bacon is good for me." Props to Joy (guest mom) for getting rid of junk food, and I think Curtis the kid would love to have a sit-down with me to discuss the goodness of bacon. ;)
