This weekend seemed non-stop from the end of work on Friday.
I met Jennifer at BART halfway to San Francisco, and locked our bikes up. Then we rode in and met a friend, got a ride over to Japantown and had dinner. Then we went to "Batman v. Superman".
What did I think?
The intro pissed me off. Do we really have to see the Waynes die in every fucking Batman movie? After I got over that, it took me a bit to get back into the movie. Once i did, I enoyed the show. The second half is much more entertaining. I told a friend I'd give ti a 3.75 out of 5 (7.5 out of 10 might sound better), and I'm viewing it as a bridge. Yes, Marvel didn't really have a bridge movie, but I'm hopeful. Affleck did a fine job as Bruce Wayne, I still like Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot is good as both Diana Prince and Wonder Woman. I look forward to the Wonder Woman.
Saturday, Jennifer and I rode around for a bit, but then decided to enjoy ridiculous fun, and play catch. Then with sore shoulders, we went home and watched television with cats in our laps.
Sunday, we decided on a longer ride, and made a big loop. We went up Alcatraz to Noah's Bagels on College, then down College and Broadway to a Starbucks in downtown Oakland. Then we ate sitting on a planter on Grand. After we ate, we walked up Broadway and found a few fun restaurants for future perusal, and a shop called Two Jacks Denim.
TJD is a great denim shop with pants, shirts and jackets. I've recently become a fan of unwashed selvage denim pants. I got a pair on Kickstarter, and they have become my favorite pants. I've had them for almost two years, and they've never been washed. The wear pattern on them is really looking amazing. I got two new pairs of pants Sunday: one that is blue on a tinted thread and the second is blue on black. they're going to look amazing too.
Sunday night, we came back to Drake's Dealership for dinner. They've got some great beers. Jennifer had a Farmhouse Ale (a great saison), and I had the amber (a great ESB). Both were amazing with her poutine and my ribs. For dessert we had a bourbon-barrel aged Drakonic stout and rye-barrel aged Robustito porter. After one taste, both left you feeling you were in a distillery with the smell of the whiskey around you.
