boy are my arms tired


Just got back from San Francisco.

I am a man of my word.

1. The Rock.

2. Falafel from Ali Baba's Cave.

What's next?

379 miles


Driving up to San Francisco tomorrow. Staying through the weekend. There are only two things for sure that I plan on doing while I'm there:

1. Visit Alcatraz

2. Go back to that Falafel place. You know, the one with the sandwiches the size of your arm.

I'm sure there will be plenty of other shenanigans to get into.

Can't wait

the big dipper


It was both of my roommates b-days this week. We went Cole's downtown to celebrate.
Cole's claims to be the originator of the French Dip. I'm sure Philippe has something to say about that.
Beyond the famous sandwiches, Cole's makes a mean cocktail. A few samplings from the table. Moscow Mule (above).
A real Daiquiri.

Old Fashioned, with Bourbon. Perfectly made.
I let the kids enjoy the dips while I had a Caesar Salad, Mac n Cheese, some of those amazing Atomic Pickles. And another drink.
Honestly, the sandwiches looked awesome. Sometimes I do miss it.
A piece of Coconut Cream Pie to end a top notch evening. I wish it was someone's birthday everyday.

same old song


Breakfast (around 2pm) with Alex and Shawn. Went to Lulu's Cafe. Their early morning offerings are varied and vast but I find myself getting the same thing at almost every place.

It goes like this: Pancakes and F. Toast sound good but I'm not much of a sweets guy so I decide on Eggs. Then I scan the Omelets and Bennies till something jumps out at me. After much back and forth, I land on something with south of the border ingredients.
The Spanish Scramble with Fruit. Eggs, Cheddar, Black Beans on top of Tortillas with Pico, Sour and Guac.

So good.

One day I'll branch out and try something else.

now you see it


Giamela's for lunch.

Large Veggie Sub, with everything.

Doing what I do best. That's only half by the way.
