San Francisco & NYC
November was a whirlwind this year. Between the election, two business trips, my mother’s visit, Thanksgiving, and putting up the Christmas tree, I am exhausted.
I wanted to highlight my two trips this month and share some things to do the next time you are in the two cities.
I flew out to San Francisco the day after the election. When I got to the airport, I purchased every paper they had. I read every election page in the NY Times on the flight. And I will be honest I cried at least half the flight. I was so shocked, overjoyed, elated, and stunned, that our country would actually vote for someone that spoke about Hope, instead of fear and had a plan on how to dig us out of the worst mess since 1929. I am still amazed.
As I grew up in California, I always feel so good when I get back to Northern Cal. And to meet up with the team and to share how excited we all were about the results was just awesome. We checked into the hotel and grabbed lunch. We then worked until 7:30 pm that night. It was a really long day starting at 3 am PST. But, we learned a lot about our customers, which was the whole point of the endeavor.
We headed off then to dinner at CoCo 500 . It was a great meal; my best friend recommended the place. Then off to the hotel and to crash.
The next evening I spent the evening with my best friend and his partner. We had the best Thai dinner in the Castro. I just love San Francisco.
