Trip Report San Francisco GTG 10/31 (report)

Jump to last reply

So the 6 of us gathered on the dark rainy Halloween night around the black pot… err… dinner table at the Lemongrass on Polk Street. Thereyet, in a costume of an injured person, wearing a boot and supported by 2 crutches, arrived in a personal limousine driven by Arts’n’letters. We haven’t believed for a moment he broke his leg!

Abrantz took on a role of a designated driver giving the Nelsonians and me a ride home, thank you for that. A warning to everybody who’ll be meeting the Nelsonians in other towns: they are a delightful couple, you will fall in love with them!

We did not talk politics, except Thereyet had produced a bag full of Obama voting buttons – I got one… in Hebrew! I’ll post the photo. Poor Thereyet, he tried to figure out everybody’s food restrictions or a lack thereof, to place the food order.

I think everybody was satisfied with the last minute restaurant choice: the one in Oakland was closed, we had only one day to find a substitute on the day of Giants’ parade and festivities and halloween night. The food was good. Some dishes were served steaming and boiling! We will not discuss drinks.

There is nothing else to tell. It was another pleasant evening with good food and friendly conversation. Looking forward to many more!
