Wednesday is the new Thursday
The good folks over at Yelp threw a little party at Poleng last night, and this south bay girl drove up to the city on a Wednesday night for the gin, tea, music, and food. Poleng, an Asian/fusion/trendy restaurant/teahouse/bar on Fulton, was packed with fellow geeks/foodies/hipsters.
Dave from Art of Tea came up from LA to share his overwhelming enthusiam for organic, fair-trade, hand-crafted tea. Tasting all of the different blends and talking Camellia sinensis brought out my inner tea snob. I even warmed up to their herbal iced tea. Poleng seems to have quite the tea selection, so I’ll have to go back and check it out some more.
I also met Arnie, who makes gin right on Pier 50 at Distillery No.209. Mmm….gin. Good stuff. Just as the gin warms my tummy, it warms my heart to see people making tasty things locally. A lot of warming going on…no wonder I am so damn hot!
