Guys’ weekend

Had a couple of old friends from college visit last weekend. Here’s the rundown of events:

Friday, 5/14/10 – Friend #1 arrived and we took a walk along Mission Creek. Later, we had beers at Public House and then it was off to Marlowe for dinner.

Saturday, 5/15/10 – Picked up friend #2. Headed over to Cliff House for breakfast. Then made our way to watch the Giants/Astros game.

That night we had dinner in North Beach at Iluna Basque.

Sunday, 5/16/10 – We checked out the weirdness of Bay to Breakers Marathon.

Next, we shot some hoops, cleaned up and made our way to Sonoma, checking out Cline and then some bubbly at Gloria Ferrer.

We had lunch at El Dorado Kitchen in Sonoma and then more wine tasting at Gundlach Bundschu and Chateau St. Jean. Made our way down the Pacific Coast to bring our friend back to SFO. Made a stop at In-N-Out on the way home.

Monday, 5/17/10 – Rainy day but we still did a cable car ride and wandered around Fisherman’s Wharf. Had fish and chips at Fog Harbor and saw the sea lions at Pier 39.
