Feelin' like New England in SF!
It's been feeling like gold ole New England in San Francisco these days for many reasons. First off, it's been unseasonable cold for the past week. I left all my winter jackets, gloves and hats back home and I am in dire need of warm clothing. When I moved out here, I didn’t think I brought the cold with me. I am just waiting for he snow to start falling! BRRRR!
Paul and I went out to a really tasty Sushi bar to meet some of my past Arnold coworkers and current coworkers this past Saturday night! It was great to see some familiar faces and share some laughs. Great food and great people, it was truly a great time.
Paul was prepared when he moved out here that he would lose the excitement of going to a local bar and watching a Red Sox or a Pats game and cheering with the crowd. Well, it felt like home going to a local bar to watch the Pats game this Sunday. Paul was all excited to go to this bar two miles away from where we live called, The Connecticut Yankee. I was not as excited to go, but I reluctantly went. When we arrived I started to walk in the other direction when I saw the crowd that was stumbling out of the bar, but Paul dragged me inside the bar. Right when we walked into the bar it felt like we were in a South Boston bar. Everyone had Pats jerseys on, missing teeth and I swore I could even hear the Boston accent! All that was missing was Clisham!
The place was packed when we arrived for the second half of the Pats game but we did manage to find a table in the back room. The back room had a large TV and a wide variety of people and this loud obnoxious waitress that was literally throwing food and drinks at people. Scary. I do have to say it was a great time watching the Pats game with a bunch of true Pats fans, especially after that amazing win! The bar was bouncing off the walls after the Pats stole the game away from the San Diego Chargers.
So even though we are both thousand of miles away from Boston, it felt like we were right in the middle of the city of Boston this weekend with the weather, Boston friends and a fun sports bar filled with loud obnoxious Pats fans! Go Pats!!!
