Fort Baker Matte

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I actually worked on this movie. I even had a chance to be in it but I had so little interest that I let that “opportunity” pass me by.

A far more interesting thing to do is to go to the real site which now has a bunch of fine old Fort Baker buildings converted into a hotel, a restaurant, and a bar. You can have a drink on the veranda or a meal and get this interesting perspective of the Golden Gate, bridge, sailboats, ship tankers and all.

The Party’s Over

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I walked out of the Half Day Cafe in Kentfield the other morning and saw this truck with all the campaign posters. I guess the election is really over and we can all get back to picking up the pieces of our country that have been left scattered across the landscape like broken toys.

Fame Or Shame

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I’ve taken to reading Willie Brown’s column in the Sunday Chronicle. He is an astute observer of politics, local and national, and much like the financial host Jim Cramer, always has an insider knowledge of what is going on.

This week Willie writes…”Perry’s opened a new joint on Steuart Street. It’s between Hotel Vitale and Ozuma. So now, the Friday night walk for the under-40 crowd is Vitale, Boulevard, Shanghai 1930 and Perry’s and Ozuma.

It’s the walk of fame or shame – depending on how the night goes.”

I didn’t know about the walk when I took this picture from the patio of the Gordon Biersch Brewery on the Embarcadero in San Francisco but I did take a walk around the area and it is worth a look.
