Weekend Fun

Monday, October 6th, 2003 · No Comments

Friday night Ben and Jess came to town and we hit Milano Pizzeria on 9th Ave. for some pizza and cheap beer (Foster’s Friday). With full bellies, we headed to Yancy’s on Irving for some intense games of Ms. Pac-Man, followed by a couple rounds of that touchscreen game wherein you compare two photos of naked women and point to the spots that contain differences.

Saturday morning I drove down to Redwood City to have brunch with my mom. We ate at this delicious (and popular) place called Stacks’ Restaurant. I had the feta omelette. It was good to spend some time with my mom.

Saturday afternoon Jen and I hit the 25th Anniversary celebration of San Francisco’s number one tourist destination, Pier 39. We met up with Megan, Lawnie, and Kelly for grub at the newest tourist trap, Hard Rock Cafe (mmm..microwaved food and flat beer!), then strolled up and down the pier for a while before hitting a bar on Northpoint. Despite being in touristville, we had a really good time, and ended the night by watching the celebratory fireworks over the pier. Megan and I almost opted for some Irish Car Bombs, but were too full after the Hard Rock. Next time…

Sunday was hot. That morning we joined John and Chris for a brunch party at their place before strolling down the hill to the Castro Street Fair. We met up with Jeanine, Tiffany, and company and strolled around the Castro. Later we joined Tim and Justin for some margaritas at Moby Dick’s.

Finally, our busy weekend came to an end last night in Sausalito for a Vassar Club get together at the beautiful home of Charles and Carmel, who treated us to a huge and delicous seafood meal spread across newspaper-covered picnic tables in the yard. It’s always great socializing with other Vassar alums. It seems that no matter what year an alum graduated, we’re all the same — our politics, our views of life, our shared Vassar experience. It’s not often that politics (the California recall) is the center of a dinner discussion and everyone pretty much agrees.
