It just didn’t feel right to take pictures. I felt like I needed to preserve the sanctity of these two places, to the extent a food blogger can. I’m talking about SUNdeVICH and Seasonal Pantry.

The trek was worth it and I’m definitely going back.

July 19, 2011: My friend, who wants an official nickname since he’s made multiple appearances on my blog, shall heretofore be called “Triple X.” So, Triple X, ahem, accompanied me to Blackbyrd Warehouse tonight. Dollar oyster specials all night was music to our ears. I like this new endeavor from the proprietors of Marvin. Cool vibe. We’ll be back soon!
