I used to get coffee at the Piccino Café back when I lived in Dogpatch. They make a mean latté. But I never tried eating there. Since those days they have expanded to a new location one block away from the old location with pretty much the same menu but with a full dining room and the coffee bar around the corner.
Their pizzas are super-thin crust and tasty. Definitely a California gourmet pizza kind of things. Their menu is full of pizzas with fancy foreign names: the «Bianca», the «Etrusca» and so on. Not the kind of pizza I grew up wih and I could do without some of the pretense, but you can’t blame a restaurant for trying to cultivate some ambiance. Certainly worth checking out.
I’m learning to hate my Saucony Grid Omni 5s. They were supposed to be the replacement to my Saucony Grid Omni 3s a few years ago, and both sets of shoes are walking shoes only now since I have my Kinvaras. The heel cup on the Omni 5s have been demolished and I need a shoehorn to get them on my feet. It’s a very frustrating experience while the older Omnis have held up nicely over more years and certainly more miles.
Walking was good today. My calves are very tight after yesterday’s run. It’s nice to get back to logging miles.
