And Now, More California
We had a nice time in San Francisco, even though I was troubled by my certainty that I was walking around inefficiently due to my lack of an appropriate algorithm. We had some drinks after the Book Passage thing (I know at least one person who went to the one in San Francisco because that’s where I said it was – sorry about that) at the Owl Tree bar, a spot we enjoyed the last time we were in town. There was a strange man there who was bothering all the patrons because he was an insane person. I asked him if he was going to sit at a newly vacant table and he just stared at me with a creepy smile and said nothing. I though he was going to stab me. Felt like home.
I must recommend the restaurant Canteen to everyone who eats food. It’s a tiny lunch counter of a place owned by our friend Dennis Leary, formerly the chef at Rubicon. The menu changes all the time, and everything he makes is delicious – it’s not diner food, it’s you know, fancy. We ate there as many times as we could, and it was not enough.
Next stop LA. Tonight we’re at McSweeney’s Presents: The World Explained, then Book Soup on Monday. Get ready Los Angelinos, cuz Hodgman’s about to KICK IT!
