There is nothing like coming back to warm sunny weather after a week in Cleveland, Ohio. I cannot stress that enough.
This weekend was pretty much gravy all around. Friday night, we hit one of our favorite spots, the Iron Springs Brewpub for some eats and drinks when I rolled in. Saturday, we jumped on the ferry and hit the city early on, and proceeded to walk through a number of different neighborhoods on a little walking tour of our own. We started downtown, had lunch in an incredible dim-sum place in Chinatown, stocked up on oils and spices in some Chinese grocery, wandered through Russian Hill, Nob Hill, and finally over to Union Street where we hit the cool-kid stores and I got a haircut from this barber who has been there for most of the century (he butchered my hair but he was a nice guy so whatever). All in all, fun times. Some random pics are here. When we got home, we made dinner and headed over to the newly restored Lark Theater in town to finally check out the Oscar winning blockbuster, The Aviator, and we loved every minute of it. How that did not win best picture, I do not know, so I will have to go see Million $ Baby.
Today we just did errands, chilled out and hit this cool bookstore down the road where I was able to find two amazing reads that I had been searching for. Life rules.
