I knew coming in that I was compelled to order the burger, having heard it lauded as one of San Francisco's finest. Despite that, I read every word on the menu (multiple times) and tried to subtlely influence Ryan to order something I was interested in tasting! He ended up with butter poached lobster served with braised lettuces and gnocchi, and I, with the Spruce burger and fries.

The onion is frankly the biggest I have ever seen - the size of a small child's head - and I am not sure what I will do with it. Anyone up for enchiladas? I am really excited about the sweet corn, the broccoli, and the apricots.
And the strawberries ... were delicious.

It was a pretty decent day on the course for a rookie ... I placed into 7s, finished in first place, and have plenty of opportunity to strike next season and work my way up. Does that mean I earned a tiara?
See if you can find me in the above pic. Hint: unlike Waldo in stripes, this kid is in plaid (Um, and still wearing my helmet?).
Can't wait for next winter already and a season on the new sticks!

We walked a couple miles into the Park to check out the overpass, headed back to Shrader/Fell to a friend's party, and late afternoon somehow found us out at Buckshot Tavern playing skee ball, drinking Tecates, and eating prolific amounts of onion rings.
As dusk fell, I was back on my couch hanging out with Anne, waiting for Thai food from Ploy II (which always tastes amazing after such marathon days), and watching Almost Famous. I awoke today rested up for the week ahead... well, almost.
