Va de Vi: An Elegant Spot For Tapas and Wine

April 23, 2014 9:04 am

Walnut Creek's Va de Vi is a casually elegant little tapas bar offering artfully prepared small plates expressing an array of influences, including those from Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Latin American cuisines.

Visit Va de Vi at lunchtime and you can order a burger or sandwich, along with some flavorful salads or small plates. For dinner, some regulars suggest steak tartare with crostini, Greek chicken skewers with orzo salad, roasted brussels sprouts with garlic puree, or butternut squash with pistachio sage pesto.

Va de Vi also has an expansive selection of international wines. Order a flight of wine to discover some new favorites, or ask your server to recommend a perfect pairing!

Two Websites for Technology Enthusiasts

April 16, 2014 9:02 am

If you always have the latest smartphone, help your friends set up their new laptops, and have more gadgets than the local electronics store, it’s safe to say that you’re a technology enthusiast. These awesome websites will give you your daily dose of tech news, as well as high-quality video and links to blogs that you won’t find anywhere else.

Though you’ve probably already heard of Wired magazine, the popular technology magazine’s corresponding website is packed full of even more fascinating tech news. The stories featured on the Wired site are made for even those without previous technology knowledge, and they’re fascinating on a truly accessible level. Here you’ll find interviews with up-and-coming inventors and entrepreneurs, research about the latest tech findings, and even investment tips and financial advice from a scientific standpoint.

Ars Technica
Ars Technica is a publication devoted to IT professionals, technologists, and other self-professed “alpha geeks.” Though the online magazine takes a fun, conversational approach to technology news, it is intended for those with a keen knowledge of the subject. Ars Technica features stories about the state of the Internet, new gadget inventions, and entrepreneurial tips from tech-savvy inventors.
