Triple Header

Monday, November 10th, 2003 · No Comments

Saturday was an East Bay triple header. No, the A’s aren’t playing in November. Jen and I had three parties to attend around the East Bay, one of which was my awesome great aunt Nora’s 85th birthday party. We met up with my Dad there and got to see an uncle, an aunt, a cousin, and lots of extended family. It was great seeing Nora sing and dance. She’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever known, and I’d be fortunate if I’m half as lovable, caring, and humorous as her — at 85 and counting.

After that exhausting day, I woke up Sunday and headed to Sacramento with Ben and Enoch to hit the Sac Snow Show and hang out with James. I bought four tickets at the door (two for me and two for E) ’cause you can’t beat $12 tickets that are a $57 value each to use midweek at either Northstar or Sierra (where, I learned Saturday, my cousin will be starting on ski patrol this year). And since I’m not working, my trips to Tahoe will not be limited only to weekends this season. So with these two tickets and the three discounted (anytime-use) Squaw tickets I bought, I’ve got to put in a good number of ski days before the end of December when we head to Saratoga Springs. I just hope my back is better in the next couple weeks.

Ben got an awesome deal on some new Salomon skis. After the ski show, we hit Luis’s, the old hangout of the Sactown gang. We all ate too much food since that’s what happens at Luis’s. Even the lunch special single item dishes provide plenty. Their tortillas rule. I am really going to miss good Mexican food in New York. I sure hope they have some decent places there. Luis’s margaritas pack a punch, too. One was enough to make me a bit tipsy.
