This was the most miserable pizza I think I ever had or pretty close to it. It was completely undercooked and just a big sloppy mess. I couldn't even eat it and couldn't even hold a slice in my hand without it spilling all over. If I could go into the neg stars I would. -3

To all those haters out there who think Tao is disappointing, you're just ordering the wrong thing. Definitely give the Crispy Tuna Sashimi Roll, Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass, Crispy and Spicy Tuna Roll, Banana Bread Pudding and the Giant Fortune Cookie. My last experience was just as good as my first one and both were to die for!!

So last Monday night as I was stalling for the inevitable packing job I had to do for a trip to Philly, I called a rather cute boy and asked him if he wanted to have dinner with me. He said yes :) A few weeks prior he had mentioned that Filter was coming through town and once we put two and five together, we realized that they were actually playing that night. Nice. We'll grab some din din and then hit the show, since really, can Filter actually be sold out? Naaah. Or so we thought as we walked up and were told the words you hate to hear, "Show's SOLD OUT!" God dammit! I was honestly okay with skipping it since I've seen Filter a ton of times over the years. You see, I used to work for Warner Bros/Reprise Records and did all of their advertising, so going to my band's shows was just part of the weekly grind, but because he really wanted to check them out, we decided to wish for the best and hope that if we waited outside (and looked pathetic/cool enough), someone would offer us some tickets they might happen to be unloading. Sure enough after about 15 minutes it worked and in we went to see the show. This was my first time at Du Nord and I'd been really excited to check it out. Happily, I wasn't disappointed. In fact, just the opposite, I really loved the place. It had all of the retro and cool rock club elements that I adore and even though we were in the back by the bar, there was still plenty of room to see the show. It was while I was watching the show that I started thinking about my past. Like I mentioned above, I used to work with Filter, in addition to a ton of other bands during my 13 year stint in the music industry. Since leaving it, I haven't been all too keen on going to shows. Think they call it, burn out, but after watching this show, I started to get really happy. Not because Filter is that great, but because I was at a rock show and actually enjoying myself again. It was even cooler to be at a rock show and have the singer say, "Thank you San Francisco" and actually feel like he was talking to me, a San Francisco-er. Yay, I'm gettin' there! :)
