I'ma Leavun ona Jet Plane...Tue, November 21, 2006 - 7:32 AM
Not much has changed in Alameda except for the two best restaurants on Webster St. are closed. The Kapoc and That Thai Place were stellar. The Kapoc had the absolutely best Wor WonTon soup I have ever had. The Black and Tans at the Shamrock are the same, barmaid is an upgrade though.
I walked around San Francisco quite a bit on Monday, SOMA, Market and a few blocks on Mission. My main reason for going to SF was to drop off an overdue present for someone. That done, I shopped and sight saw (see'd?). I came thisclose to buying a MacBook on sale at CompUSA but changed my mind after realizing it would be on sale again just before Christmas for an even better price. BART, Muni and AC Transit are all still the same. There seems to be more homeless people now, they sleep openly on the sidewalks all day. I had Sushi near O'Farrell and Powell I think it was, I forgot about Sushi chefs and Mondays, but it was good anyway.
All in all, a nice way to spend a Monday in a city I don't spend enough time in.

|I lose track of who lives where. It would have been fun to meet you. If you are in Alameda, or can get to Alameda, we can have a chat at Shamrock. :) That goes for any Triber, of course. I'm carless so travelling is limited.|
