Down the hatch!

This evening was spent doing something a little bit different from my everyday routine: I poured wine at The St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. I'd like to say that I was chosen to represent the winery at which I work because of my extensive wine knowledge and magnetic personality, but truthfully no one else was available, or wanted to work this event.
The yacht club had recently completed an extensive face-lift of their dining room and were holding a members only open house to showcase the remodeled eating area. It was a fun event held in beautiful surroundings, complete with breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay, scuttlebutts of wine, lots of yachty-type folk decked out in Sperry Top-Sider deck shoes and nautically themed ties, buckets of shrimp, boatloads of oysters, and last but not least, a jaw dropping sunset just beyond the Golden Gate Bridge. It was worth the 108 mile commute.
Life is good.

Thud: That very thought did indeed cross my mind :)

Monkey: I'll save the most up-to-date Sperry catalogue for you to peruse when you get here in July.

I love that, buckets of shrimp. Yum yum.

Phlemmy: I think it would be hard to have a bad time in such a spectacular setting.

Affer: Is that you Percy?

Ron: I've never seen so many shrimp, big 'uns too.
