San Fransisco for Halloween
Originally, I was supposed to be up in San Fransisco last week for another 1/2 marathon. Long story short – It didn’t happen.
I arrived late afternoon on Friday and after a little more work (I love that my best girlfriend is also an overachiever) – we headed out for FOOD.
She took me out to “off the grid” at Fort Mason – basically a food truck festival! Yum, yum, yum. Everything and nothing for dinner – and beer & wine. All in one night we had Mexican, Burmese, Argentinian and Chinese. Ahhhhh…. bliss!
The next day (after missing the race), we headed off to hot yoga as a replacement, grabbed brunch and napped. I know – not much action there. But that was because we were resting up for Halloween. When you’re over 40 – you need to rest up for these things!!
We didn’t have much of a plan, but we had wigs and tickets to GhostShip. Let’s see – artsy town, warehouse, installation art… very burning-man-like…. put plainly – I probably would have had an excellent night if I was tripping, but instead I had a great night with a few cocktails. The art was very cool and the people watching was wonderful. Yes, I stayed out past 1am…
The next morning – our internal clocks still working, we slept in until about 6.30am and headed out for Chinese. We laughed about the the night before – and laughed even harder when we saw people walking home still in their costumes. Those days are behind us – but it’s still fun to watch!
Ahhhhh…. SF – what a city. I can’t wait to go back (but am looking forward to the warm waters of Florida next week!)
