FILM: MALTESE FALCON ON TCM
Turner Classic Movies celebrates the 80th anniversay of John Huston’s classic “The Maltese Falcon.” The thriller has a few local connections: one of the original falcons in the film calls John’s Grill home, and Humphrey Bogart is in the lead role as a San Francisco private detective. The film noir replay on TCM is part of a month-long celebration of this and other celluloid treasures.
FOOD : BAY AREA GOES AL FRESCO
San Francisco’s John’s Grill is joining many other Bay Area restaurants for outdoor dining once again. From Monterey to Mendocino restaurants and wineries and some bars with food options are welcoming customers back as they open one more for outdoor seating only. It’s time and I am rooting for each and every one of of restaurants. Call ahead to check on dining options.
EAT: RAINY DAYS & MEATBALLS
