Dinner with Two Goofy Guys

That's Tom and Scott. We're waiting to get in to Contigo. It's a small plates joint. Don't go. You'll order 2 or 3 plates. Then you'll order 4 more. The plates average 7 or 8 dollars. You'll order more and more and more. And then you'll need another bottle of wine. Since the plates are small you will go ahead and order 11 or 12 more.

You'll have to have coffee. It's Blue Bottle and it comes in a press. You'll order sorbet, and then you'll need the galletitas (the 6 different kinds of cookies). There's a bacon peanut butter, a caramel alfajore, a date pinwheel, a pine nut panellet, a blackberry thumbprint, and a truffle. When the plate of cookies comes, grab the pine nut panellet before anybody else does. It's the little square covered with powdered sugar.
