      Please read the second story, about the fundraiser for the daughters of Joel Mendenhall of Homegrown Meats. He died in a horrible farming accident on September 2. I can't figure how to link it to here.

        Wow, when I saw "Linen" I thought we were in for yet another fabric-named establishment by the Fedora Dude. Fortunately, it was a false alarm.

                It doesn't happen often, but I am in entire agreement with Fakey's request.

                Guess we are in to Malarkey knockoffs now.

            I thought it was referring to the actual linens. I envisioned an old crone picking wheat and then spinning it into some kind of edible napkin or tablecloth.

              Oh my, a little pretentious don't you think? What's wrong with just plain old farm to table?

                  Hills to Grills? Hoes to Close (late night farm-to-table dining event)? Stool to gruel (a celebration of manure)?

                    Actually I read it as "Lard to Linen", and I thought it was an ohh so trendy pork belly restaurant. Yes I agree that the name is pretentious, but anymore so than that hipster soup place in Little Italy that wont give you a spoon? The real problem, is that I have never really been that impressed with any of the restaurants at the La Costa Resort. They have been ok at best, there are much better hotel dining choices in north San Diego county.

                      You mean Underbelly?

                      Love it.

                      I'm no hipster.

                        You don't think that is a wee bit on the pretenious side

                          That I'm not a hipster?

                          Never occurred to me, but I'll certainly give it appropriate consideration, and thanks for your observation.

                          Hipster. Wow. Now there's a term I don't think I've heard since maybe 1960 or so, which is about when it transmuted into "hippie". Is that word coming back these days? And are there really "hipster" restaurants now? Maybe I'm out of touch a little.
