so, you ready to find out what the big deal was? we had told Lindsay to dress up fancy today, that we had a big adventure planned. (but not that same kind of riding the trains adventures that Dev and i usually have)
today was a trip to the big top. yes, we took Lindsay out to see Cirque Du Soleil. we had actually passed the tents on our trip to visit Dev at the gardens previously in the week, but i tried to play it cool.
the show was amazing. really. it was totally worth it, even if some parts weren’t that great, overall the entire show was wonderful. and being that it’s only until town until the end of this month, we figured it’d be worth it to check it out.
(they didn’t allow cameras inside, so these pics are borrowed from a GIS)
i just posted photos of acts we actually saw in the show.
we had a wonderful time, topped off with dinner at Firefly. i can not even explain to you how the food was. i’ve never eaten like that before. it was a perfect night.
let’s see if we even need a list:
-late morning chatting with Mae
-looking up houseboat rentals online
-worked on a painting
-showered / dressed for the day
-BART to embarcadero
-meet Dev on the platform
-MUNI T line to Mission Rock stop
-an hour early to the show
-popcorn and water
-2.5 hours of Cirque Du Soleil
-T line to 23rd st
-bus to Firefly
-walk to J train (heels are killing the ladies by this point)
-J to Civic Center
-BART to 19th St Oakland
-FIND A CAB!! one of 3 cars out in the sleepy town
i’m thinking that was the way to cap off Lindsay’s visit to SF. she’ll be back in town on Sunday, but i think we’ll be focused more on the East Bay / Berkeley area.
so until then. it’s another day off for me tomorrow. i’m thinking of checking out what’s new over at the SFMOMA.
