Birthday Run Down

Birthday was fabulous. Started with the arrival of my cousin Vivian and her boyfriend Alvin, along with a a few dozen t-shirts to promote their new line t-shirt line Crack Code Droopy (thought I'd help them advertise as well). Friday, we went to Berkeley to see the Shins at the Greek Theater. It got a little cold towards the end, but all in all, it was the perfect way to start my bday festivities. The next day, we headed out bright and early to the Ferry Building to eat at the Farmer's Market and take the ferry to Angel Island (where tens of thousands of Chinese immigrants were held before they were let on to San Francisco). On our way back to the mainland, we were greatly entertained by the Blue Angels for Fleet Week.

Afterwards, we got dressed up and dined at Nihon - a sushi and whiskey lounge. And after that, Justin surprised me with a private booth and bottle service at the Ambassador. Events into the night are a little fuzzy...

Sunday - we went to the Hardly Strictly BlueGrass festival at GG Park. Overall the music and food were pretty good, but it was WAYYYYYY too crowded. Oh and there was a band called Marley's Ghost that seemed intriguing as they were supposed to be a mix between English folk, bluegrass, and reggae. Sadly, they were highly unsuccessful.

My actual bday was on the 11th, a Thursday. I stayed at work late to catch up on projects, and went home to be greeted by a homemade chocolate cake a la Justin, and our usual crowd of bandits (shane, daniela, karl, and mike).

Thanks all for an unforgettable 30th bday, esp Justin who went above and beyond. More pics ici.
