Pacific Heights Sunday Night

This evening I capped off a positively lovely weekend by getting together with my old friend Anne. Anne, who not only is fabulous but also happens to be a devoted reader of this blog, and I have known each other since the fourth grade. She has lived in the Bay Area longer than I have, and we used to hang out quite a bit when I moved to San Francisco in the late 90's. But a few years ago she got married, and then had her son. So her time is a little limited these days.

She found some time tonight, however, and we met at Solstice in Pacific Heights for snacks, drinks and girl talk. It was quite nice to get caught up, since the last time we saw each other was at my 40th birthday party more than a year ago. And it always is nice to stay connected to old friends.

I made quick work of my first Solstice grapefruit Bellini.

We didn't hang out in the smoke room, but it was, of course, good to know that we had the option.

Kobe beef sliders. They were a little rare but delicious nonetheless.

Anne and me. We don't look a day older than fourth grade, right? Well, maybe a day older...

As I mentioned, my weekend was lovely, overall. I watched some baseball, got lots of sleep and saw the production of Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit currently running at A.C.T. If you happen to be in San Francisco and want to take in a little theatre in the next couple of weeks, I highly recommend this show. If not, well, it's actually a touring show, so perhaps it will come to your town.

I started to write blog in English.
I will write about everything, will be a lot of pictures, reviews of books, films, songs etc.
So it would be nice if you visit my blog sometimes :)

Sounds like a night I would have enjoyed - miss you both! And I particularly love that 'No Exit' was a part of your weekend. Now that takes me back: fun times in French class...
