I have googled other people, but nothing comes up. Oh Well.
I finished the course and took the test today. I kicked ass! I am here to help you people! Drop me a note here on on Facebook!
I met up with a buddy of mine today to catch up and shoot the shit. During our conversation which touched on work, common friends, and general insanity, he mentioned he just joined an adult dodgeball league. Let me repeat that, an ADULT DODGEBALL LEAGUE. Bad assed!
He tells me it is run by the San Francisco Recreation Department, and will go for 10 weeks starting tonight. It goes from 7:30-9:00 on Friday nights at the newly remodeled gymnasium about a mile from my house. So, of course I had to look it up online. Low and behold, it was not only NOT FULL, but it only cost $27.00. You got it, $2.70 a week to run around like a kid and throw balls at people. AWESOME.
Now here is the part that blew me away; I went to the Parks and Recreation website and was stunned. They offer all sorts of great classes for kids through seniors. Everything from art classes to fitness classes to sports to ballroom dancing to theatre. Again…AWESOME. And they do it cheap! All you have to do is join the parks and recreation site (Free to join) and then start choosing places and classes. You pay for the classes you want to take.
I HIGHLY recommend anyone in SF who is looking for something fun to do, to visit this site.
Because of a conversation with a friend, tonight I was throwing balls at strangers and having a great time. And the other people playing had as much fun as I did. Good times. Very good times. (and rather spontaneous)
I wonder what I will try next?
I have to start with the fact that I am a BIG fan of Martin’s old bar, Forbidden Island in Alameda. Smuggler’s Cove is his new place in SF, and I have to make mention of a few things. I like the decor, and the MENU is amazing. I also understand that it is a VERY COMPLEX menu, and I really like the bartenders working there, but, you can’ t wait 20-30 minutes to get a drink no matter how good they are.
As a Tiki Bar, it is beautiful, and the drinks are amazing. Also, as it just opened, I know they will improve in their drink to customer time, but for now, when the bar is full, it is not worth the wait. Go to Cantina, Bourbon and Branch, or Absinthe. Or, make the big trip to Forbidden Island, which is ALWAYS worth the ride.
Thanks Martin for opening Smuggler’s Cove, and I can’t wait for you to dial everything in. Until then, try to show up when the crowd is thin.

This is not a classic “health” post, but it is near and dear to my heart. The people over at Nervous Dog Coffee do it right. From the great (and healthy) bagel sandwiches to best damn Mocha I have gotten in the city, you need to try Nervous Dog! Stop in and say hi to Joe and team.
