First things first - Val and I had a fabulous time in San Francisco last weekend, attending Stu and Michelle's wedding
. Pictures are here
, but I still have a few more to add.
We left RDU at 6:30 am, but that landed us at SFO right around 11:00 am, which was good because baggage and the rental car took FOREVER. We headed into the city proper, and hung out until our friend Naomi (former resident of both Carrboro AND the Twin Cities) was done with work. We ended up meeting (at Naomi's suggestion) at Zeitgeist
, a bar we had been to once on one of our previous visits. Of all the bars in all the neighborhoods of all of San Francisco...what are the chances? But it's a really cool place so we had a great time. She then lead us to dinner at the same place (unbeknownst until we saw the place) that we had eaten some great Indian food on that same previous trip.
After all that it was time to pack it up for the East Bay. We said farewell to Naomi and hopped in our Kia Optima, headed across the Bay Bridge and into Berkeley, where we were staying with Gralena
We were greeted by Graham, Malena, and Nomad Ben
, whom no one had seen in several years. We stayed up a little while talking, but soon had to crash due to traveling all day.
The next day was a little brunch with the groom, who recruited Ben and I to come assist with some x-acto tasks for the wedding dinner decor. That ate up the afternoon, which led to the Groom's Dinner, which is where the photos begin.
I came home and on tuesday drove to the Raleigh FedEx HQ to pick up my iPod, which they were unable to deliver at a time I could sign for it. It's getting close to half-full, and I love it. I got an iTrip
so I can use it as my car audio, and it works great!
