Later in the night, it was off to Oakland for a night for aerobatic performances by hula hoopers, jugglers and “hella” good dancers moving to the grooves of several DJs throughout the night. All kinds of paintings, photographs and sculptures adorned the hallways which flooded into industrial loft apartments. A strange night of interesting characters for sure.
An overall fantastic weekend of glorious weather and adventures in San Francisco and Oakland with friends. On Saturday, Chinatown kicked off their new year celebration with their annual Flower Fair. We walked the streets elbow to elbow, playing with trinkets in the overflowing stands and stores, people watching, and trying to decide whether we wanted Chinese food or just head next door to North Beach to find a quaint Italian cafe. Chinese food won that round, but my choice of a “spicy bean cake” dish (in other words, slimy tofu) was anything but victorious.
