SF CA or Bust

I’m going on my first out-of-state business trip in… ever, it seems like. The last plane trip I took on business was from Mass. to N.C. sometime around 1984. I’m attending a two-day meeting in San Francisco, and Myr is coming along for the trip. We’ll extend it into the weekend, and spend a couple of days looking around SF (a city we’ve each visited only briefly), dining at wonderful restaurants, and visiting…. (wait for it)… yarn shops! I know you are shocked. So far we’ve a plan to go to Artfibers, and of course we are open to suggestions for other great shops. We’ll be staying in the financial district, so if you know of a must-visit LYS in the city, leave me a comment. I’m hoping that Myr will visit Britex Fabrics, which isn’t really my type of store but I may break down and visit just for the chance to look through their button selection, which is reputed to be amazing.


As for food, I’m hoping to have lunch on Friday somewhere in Chinatown, we have reservations that evening at The Slanted Door (near the SF Ferry Building), and we’ll probably be up near wine country north of the city on Saturday, so we’ll be likely eating out in a little town called Petaluma. I’m thinking of renting a car for the day and taking a drive along the coast

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
