New Orleans to San Francisco

This past weekend I had four friends from high school come to the Bay Area to visit Rachael and I. Rachael lives in San Francisco and is leaving soon to attend grad school at Tulane. The six of us had such a nice time together! We did lots of touristy things like chocolate sundaes at Ghiradelli Square, but we also did less touristy things like watching Steel Magnolias and eating our weight in cheese and fun fetti brownies. Rachael has a lovely (and very large) apartment in a neighborhood called nopa (north of the panhandle), so the 6 of us were very comfortable over the long weekend (I took Friday off of work).

One of the more memorable moments occured when we went to R Bar on Friday night - which also happened to be the last stop on a Snuggie bar crawl. Snuggies are basically blankets with arms. People got creative and we saw lots of snuggie costumes - snuggie Merlin, snuggie toga, snuggie princess, etc. If you look closely in the background of this picture, you will see some snuggie costumes.

Julia, Elizabeth, Lisa, and Emily - thanks for coming across the country to visit! This weekend was so fun.

UPDATE: see this SF Chronicle article on this very bar crawl
