Ubuntu, The Restaurant, 10.10.10
My wife, Kim, and I were recently in the California wine country, in Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
While there, we had a lovely dinner one night at the Ubuntu Restaurant and Yoga Studio.
The Ubuntu restaurant has nothing to do with the software I write, other than we share a name and actually have a similar set of principles. While we apply the tennets of Ubuntu to software, they apply it to food. The inside of the restaurant is really quite chic (like much of Napa). It really reminded me of the set from Joss Whedon's Dollhouse TV series :-)
All of the food is vegetarian, and it's ordered and served tapas style. Everything we had was delicious.
The portions looked small, but neither of us were hungry at all by the time we left.
We did have cookies for dessert, just to make sure we wouldn't leave hungry.
We did leave our waitress with a stack of Ubuntu CDs.
Their menus are custom printed every day, so in exchange, she mailed me a copy of Sunday's 10.10.10 Ubuntu restaurant menu (at the top of this post). Check out the date in the top corner:
Cheers to the Ubuntu restaurant, and the Ubuntu 10.10.10 release!
