Milpitas Moments

My friend Josh is now at it again with this site: www.your24.com . Would be nice to have an authoritative repository of locals' recommendations...

Put me in the true-believer category. Moore and Hopelain, who are married, have created a place that's distinctive and personal. While the flavors are familiar, the way they combine them is unique. Not everyone will appreciate their efforts, but those who do will probably become regulars.

Google Map's Streetview feature lands in Japan (via nobilog) and I'm floored at the coverage. They've driven down some seriously narrow streets. Time to find my kindergarten!
