It was so nice to spend the weekend in the city with old friends! Our late summer warm weather was out in full force for the last few days.
On Friday, Rob and I relaxed at home with pizza and a movie. On Saturday, we had a leisurely morning before packing up for my company's annual picnic. Quick detour across town for a friend who slipped and fell and needed help getting bandaged up. The company picnic was lovely, good thing Rob and I brought hats for the burning mid-day sun!
Our friend Shane arrived from Southern California in the afternoon. We walked down to the Biergarten in Hayes Valley to meet up with Nicole. Delicious pretzels and potato salad with beer in the garden.
Shane's cousin and Margaret met up with us for a delicious dinner at O-toro sushi.
After dinner we went to Brass Tacks for cocktails. Shane, Margaret and his cousin trekked out across town at a bar where they were filming a reality TV show.
Lazy morning on Sunday. I read the paper while Rob went for a bike ride. Shane departed later in the morning. Before lunch, I baked up some cookies and packed up the picnic basket.
Rob and I biked over to Golden Gate Park for the annual Opera in the Park concert that kicks off the new season. Margaret met us and we had a nice lunch of smoked trout, hummus, cheese, crackers and carrots among the other opera fans.
Back home in the late afternoon, I was worn out from all that time in the sun over the weekend and we crashed out watching episodes of Under the Dome for the rest of the day.
