My brother Chris starts his first day at his first professional, post-undergrad job on Monday. That convinced me to go just a little crazy yesterday night. We stopped by R Bar, Hemlock, Vertigo, The Ambassador, and finally a friend’s apartment. Ended up going to sleep at 4 a.m., but it was well worth it. That “chocolate” tattooed arm is neither mine nor my brother’s. Chris has interesting friends. Despite the late night with Chris, I spent all day today with family again. I helped Chris get a lot of business casual work clothes at H&M and my mother went on a Bloomingdales spree. I didn’t get anything though. My closet is full to bursting.
The whole family had dinner at The Belltower at the corner of Polk and Jackson. Really good food. I highly recommend it. It’s so nice to have family living so close in San Francisco. Chris is always down to try a new restaurant, take me shopping, or chauffeur me to the airport. Even if he is always late.
Michael is leaving for Peru in a day and I’m trying to spend as much time with him as possible. Also, my eyes are still burning from last night. I’m turning in early.

My brother Chris drove me around all day today so I took him out for a late lunch. We were supposed to go to B Star in the Richmond and had found parking right in front of the restaurant, put coins in the meter and everything, before we saw that it was closed. We were there at 3:40 p.m., sort of the worst time to try and get a bite to eat, and B Star is closed between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
So we went down the street to King of Thai.
Duck pineapple fried rice. Curry puffs. Pad kee mao. Delicious.
Even more delicious was our stop at Genki for crepes after Thai food.Chris has been there before, but never with me so he obviously didn’t know what to get. He’s been missing out. I always get the Nutella crepe, with red bean ice cream, baby marshmallows and freshly whipped cream. It’s fantastic. Chris was impressed.
We also saw a little boy attached by a rope to his baby brother’s stroller. His nanny said it was to prevent him from running. Definitely the best parenting ever. I’m going to file that away.
