The exotic land of central California

Greetings from Monterey, former land of the mighty sardine, current land of Stanford’s  Hopkins Marine Station. Hopkins is my home for the next two weeks as I find out how fast I can learn tunicate mariculture and population genetics. (I really hope the answer is “in two weeks, of course!” But I doubt it.) Updates might be somewhat spotty since I fear my brain will not have room for anything unless it is related to tunicates. However, I still need to eat (particularly squid tacos) and would love to meet up with any readers in the area. Anyone from MBARI out there?

    Hey, I’ll be in Santa Cruz Thursday night March 20. What’s your schedule?

    Hmm, wish I still lived in SF. But I can make a suggestion. There is a place called Casa Linda Restaurant & Grill one street back from Cannery Row in Monterey that offers outdoor seating with great views of the water and excellent fish tacos. I recommend a Corona with your meal. Enjoy!

    I think the name is wrong on second thought. It wasn’t on the road, it was just off a bike path behind Cannery Row and several blocks down from the aquarium. The Mucky Duck maybe?

    Gah, sorry, I found it, Trailside Cafe. I highly recommend it.

  6. Thanks Justin! I will definitely check it out. Love me some fish tacos!
