Statebird Provisions (Fillmore)

Website: Address: 1529 Fillmore Street Rating: 4 out of 5 star Feedback: I don't know why there's a long despite the fact that we went there on a Monday evening (1/23/2017) at 5.30 PM, when it was about to open and despite a gloomy weather. I think this is such a overrated/hyped and overpriced restaurant. Let's take the pros and cons Dimsum style American Food, so it's kinda Tapas-style. Interesting twist to your normal "heavy" and huge amount of American Food. Nice ambiance and place in Fillmore.  Not too Fancy, but not too Shabby either. Food - generally it was good, I won't say it's great but it was really good (Not all of course). Oysters - of course, it's always yummy 3$ a piece Smoked Trout Dip with Potato Chips - interested twist using smoked trout as a dip Duck Confit Ball - interesting but errr.. 10 dollars? Garlic Bread Burrata - Burrata was good, but Garlic Bread was not, can't even taste th

Nice Jazz Music with good Southern food! Where: 401 Mason Street San Francisco Link: Food Rating: 4 out 5 Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 What to order: Southern Fried Chicken was really good ad definitely worth ordering Calamari - nothing special! Mac & Cheese Croquet - if you are up for something Fried and Mac & Cheese, this is your thing! Feedback: Watch out for really good and upcoming artists. It was not bad, cheap for 24 dollars to watch a really good jazz player ("Kingfish" - check out the video). Food was generally good and place was not big so it's cosy and small and and very private.

Website: Post Parade Website: Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Address: E Washington Blvd & Sierra Madre Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91107 Date Visited: January 2, 2017 Feedback: Instead of queuing up in line the day before and not really seeing the floats, I suggest you go to the post-parade show case where they put all the floats in one place for you to see, take pictures, and appreciate. It's actually quite a huge place and you will need more than two hours to go They set up the place so that they have food stalls, sponsor's booths, and some activities so you might want to check it out and at least spend half a day there.  Food is fairly limited with hotdog stands, kernel, and the usual food stall stuff (but not that much). They had California Pizza Kitchen there though The floats were amazing - really beautiful and they really spent time doing it up. There are attendants who ca
