chris kronner will be dreaming up some special dishes to eat while you sip andrew's wines at bar tartine on december 3rd. it will surely be raucous and delicate all at once. i'd hoped to go (if for no other reason than to eat half a loaf of chad's bread), but i'll be out of town. if you make it over, please eat some bread pudding on my behalf.
