Spent a super refreshing evening this past Sunday with an old friend from college. We caught up over yummy fish tacos and coconut cream pie at Chow (holy cow), then headed over for a super potent $5 Mai-Tai at The Residence (RIP Amber.) They were grilling up some yummies in the back and had some good tunes going. It was a super mellow nice time as we choked down our extremely strong drink. Hello, heavy-handed bartendress.
Next stop was Cafe du Nord, where we saw Bay Area band Birds and Batteries and a couple other bands. Great music, great friends, great Sunday night. Also got to spend some time in Oakland (where my friend lives). Having lived in SF for however many years and not ever really spent any time in the Lake Merritt area of Oakland I was pleasantly surprised at how charming it is. I might have to take a closer look at the Oakland area if I ever end up moving. East Bay, you impress me.
In the meanwhile, almost done with the wholesale section of go jet go and excited to start cruising around to some of the great stores in the area. Hopefully the response is favorable. =)
