Back to normal

I had been building this site at work, which was challenging because the design was not friendly and I was not allowed to use any CSS3. IE users are privileged enough to have the same experience as users of real browsers. This design was all about rounded corners (everywhere!), gradients within gradients, drop shadows (inner […]

Bymark restaurant

Last night, we went to the Bymark for dinner with my in-laws. Bymark is chef Mark McEwan’s new venture, located in the business district downtown. The food was fantastic (see menu)!
