Weekend Round-Up: Mellow

A nice restful weekend! I love it when we're in the city for the weekend without too many plans.

On Friday, I went out with a group from work to Dada. I can't keep up with those kids! Rob swung by on the bike to pick my up and we grabbed take out from Henry's Hunan for dinner.

Saturday morning, a lazy time at the apartment - spinning on the bike and getting organized. At lunch, I walked down to the ballpark to bring Rob lunch (he was volunteering with Bike Coalition). One of the few sunny spots in the city - the boaters were taking full advantage.














In the afternoon, Rob and I rode down to the Metreon to see Inception with a few cream puffs from Beard Papa. Great movie - super long, and likely to have a weird impact on your dreams, but great! Back home for a late night taco and guacamole dinner.

Up early on Sunday to read the paper with some coffee before heading to the Outer Richmond by bike. Our good friends, Seth and Amy, are moving to the city so we went to help them settle in their new apartment.


















Lunch on the lawn at Park Chalet. They have the best bloody mary's in town by far.

















From there, Rob and I pedaled over to Sports Basement and then to Fort Mason to meet Margaret at the Renegade Craft Fair. Overwhelming amount of crafty goodness - lots of laser-cut wood earrings, letterpress cards, screenprinted onesies, posters and felt dolls. My favorite was a booth with free-form embroidery.













Back home from the crafts with Margaret in tow. I made a big salad and we ordered pizza while watching Where the Wild Things Are on blu-ray. Strange film, beautifully made.

Wait better bloody marys' than the ones in Haight Ashbury on Sunday when they have the bloody mary bar where you fix your own at the victorian bar? of course the name escapes me right now. One of my favorite brunch or afternoon drinks.
