Weekend in Cupertino (sort of)

After last weekend’s fun, I decided to take it easy and stay close to home this weekend.

Friday at work was finished up with a Beer Bash where the MacBook team demoed their new babies while everyone drank Guiness and Harp (get it — black and white MacBook, dark and light beer? So clever!). I gotta say I don’t mind those glossy screens at all.

After that wrapped up, I joined Jonathan and his friend Jeff for a trip to Palo Alto (Jeff was going to buy a skateboard; Jonathan and I bought a frisbee). Palo Alto is yet another beautiful California town, with an active downtown strip. We had some sushi before we headed back to Cupertino and played some night frisbee in the courtyard of our apartment complex.

Saturday started off with a trip to the monthly flea market, which was somewhat uninspired — rows and rows of tents all with the same kinds of crap. Then we took a little shopping trip to San Jose, where I got some cheap Reef flip-flops at the Nordstrom outlet store.

Then we were off to Santana Row (there was some debate as to whether this is actually ‘downtown’ San Jose), where we planned to see An Inconvenient Truth. We were all quite impressed with Santana Row — it’s very upscale, reminds me a little bit of Soho, with a lot of nice restaurants (mostly out of our budget for the day), and high-end (mostly) corporate chains.

So it’s been a nice weekend so far. The film was incredible, and deserves more attention than I’m going to give it in this post, but needless to say, go see it.
