    I love Sausalito. There used to be a place called the Buckeye Roadhouse Grill at the corner of something in Sausalito and the road to Mill Valley that was great. I wonder if it's still there? The food was really, really good, and I loved the interiors as well, especially the bronze horn lamps with the red glass bead shades. Thanks for kindling a good memory.
