A beautiful weekend in SF...finally

Seeing I was in DC last weekend and down on the Peninsula for Easter the one prior this has been my first weekend in the City in a while. And boy - you couldn't have asked for a nicer one. It is also my last weekend in the sublet! I move into my new permanent home next weekend and I can't wait to be surrounded by my own stuff and have cable again!

Friday night I met up with some friends in the Mission at a place called Zeitgeist. This is the place to go on a sunny day (like today). A huge outdoor beer garden with potent bloody marys. What more could a City gal ask for? After a few beers we headed to Lucky 13 - known for the pole on the bar used by drunken amateurs for dancing. I did not partake in that if you were curious but we did hang in the outdoor space which was very quaint.

After a little alcohol lubricration and finding ourselves so near the Castro we popped into a Gay dance club called Trigger. I have to say, it is kind of unfair. The Gays have it good, hot guys everywhere you look, go-go boys dancing on the bars - one can only wish that us straight girls had it so easy. Suffice it to say you can't help but dance your ass off. We finished the night with a slice and headed home in taxi. One major perk of City living is the taxi ride home on a drunken night - only 10 bucks and 10 minutes and you're home. Thank god.

Saturday I didn't leave my house til 3 pm :) Once I finally got going I met a friend for a movie downtown.
Greenberg with Ben Stiller. Now I knew going in this wasn't a comedy but ugh it was difficult to sit through. I think I'm just tired of movies depicting 40 year old losers who somehow bag the hot 25 year old girl. It just doesn't seem like reality to me but then again maybe I'm just jaded. Anyway, after that I called it a night and headed home.

Today, my friend and I headed to the Cherry Blossom Festival which is held in Japantown - only a hop, skip, and a stop at Crossroads away. Interesting fact, San Francisco's Japantown is one of only three left in the Country. It was hot in San Francisco and that doesn't happen often. So of course we weren't dressed for it. We checked out the parade, ate some sushi, drank some Sapporo and checked out the vendors. After that we treated ourselves to a pedi at the cutest little salon right down the street from home.

Tonight I plan on cuddling up with my latest Netflix (did I mention how much I can't wait to get cable? Just saying.) All in all, a terrific weekend!
