Since the SpineBlogger is a not-for-profit organization, rather than going to the Spine Technology Awards in San Francisco, I would recommend making reservations at either the Zuni Cafe (San Francisco), Chez Panisse (Berkeley) or Tyler Florence's restaurant in the newly renovated Hotel Vertigo (aka the Hotel York, SF). When making your reservation just tell them the SpineBlogger recommended you. In addition the winners will receive the first annual Spineblogger.blogspot.com baseball hat, anonymously, of course.
