Memorial Day, Angel Island – a photoset on Flickr

I had the good fortune to spend Memorial Day with my friend Gideon & his co-workers on a boat at Angel Island. It capped off an awesome weekend, actually.

My roommate Jonathan and I took the CalTrain up to San Francisco on Saturday. After walking around SoMa for a bit, we met my friend Ryan Junell and helped him pack up some stuff before he moved to Brooklyn of all places. We had a couple of drinks at Zeitgeist, a great bar on Valencia, and then had dinner at Bacar, the fantastic restaurant where Gideon works.

Jonathan went home, while I hung out with Gideon. On Sunday we had a great lunch at Frjtz and went to the Capsule design fair in Hayes Valley. Gideon had to work, so I met up with Karina, one of Mikey’s bandmates, who was cool enough to invite me along to a barbecue at her friend’s place in the Lower Haight.

Went back to Gideon’s place and slept for about 4 hours before we had to get up to get a van to Sausalito to get on Gid’s co-worker’s sailboat, a 40 foot beauty. We didn’t actually sail out — the engine sufficed for the short trip out to Angel Island.

So that’s a brief rundown of my memorial day weekend — check out the pix!
