Fried: The very thought of bacon desserts we have loved left us schwitzing pork fat, as did the instantly addictive po'boy filled with bacon-studded eggs Little Skillet served on Day One of breakfast service. We weren't done. We ID'd a spot in Alameda where, if you ask nice, you can get a slug of bacon bourbon, and even took a chaw on bacon jerky.
Keepin' it classy: To show we could still clean up nice, we stopped in on breathtaking Cavallo Point in Marin, experienced the unnerving quiet that was opening day of massive new Berkeley Bowl West, and, at Schmidt's Deli on Folsom, nibbled some of the most refined German cuisine you could ever shake a brat at. All in all, a week packed with delicious.
