I've seen them have both red and white raw turmeric!
Not to mention being my source for galengal, and young hawaiian ginger.
Berkeley Bowl was indeed fantastic. Thanks for the recommendation Aaeriele and Freezeblade! It was SO CROWDED on Saturday when we went though. Their organic produce section is amazing, and everything tastes fantastic. I'm going to have to use actual galangal for my thai dishes instead of the regular ginger I've been subbing.
I'm also looking for lady docs and a dentist. We've already found a vet, I've gotten a hair stylist I quite like (although she's moving to LA in a month, which is a total bummer, I JUST found her, and I like her!!).
We can also be at Bay Area meetups provided that they A) happen on weekends and B) are toddler-friendly or we have enough notice to arrange for a babysitter.
I would also like an even where I can bring the dog-beast.
We should all meet up for a hike in one of theEast Bay Regional Parks
. Jacque and I went to Redwood Regional Park with Bo and it was just so much fun
. Ideally in this type of way
, with frequent stops and snacking and secret alcohols. We'd also love to make trips out to Yosemite or Lake Tahoe. So many beautiful things outside!
