To San Francisco and back

Facing a very busy schedule for the next ten weeks, Sharon and I decided to drive to San Francisco and have lunch with Jack. Rolling from Carmichael at 10 am, the traffic was a mess. It took us three hours and twenty minutes to get to Jack's apartment [80 to 680 to 24].

On the way to the city, we listened to The Ringer's The Big Picture podcast about the Elvis biopic.. Although both Sharon and I liked the film, the reviewers panned Tom Hanks performance and Goldmember accent. They didn't like the vehicle of telling the story from Colonel Parker's perspective or how the film fast forwarded through parts of Elvis' life. Nevertheless, I still recommend the film...

We walked from Jack's apartment to Ti Piacera for lunch. We spilt a Burrata Cheese [Over crostini with balsamic redaction, arugula and cherry tomatoes]. For entrées, I had Penne al Matricciana [Penne pasta, spicy Italian sausage, red onion, tomato, spinach, garlic-white wine], Sharon had Portobello Ravíoli [Creamy pesto, cherry tomatoes and feta] and Jack had a Panini.

Wandering back to Jack's apartment, we visited for a couple of hours. Jason and his sister Alyssa showed up.

Leaving the city about 6:30 pm, we were back in Carmichael back after 8:30 pm. Thankfully, the traffic was better.
