the rocket boat, etc.

on monday after work i sped up to the city to spend the evening with eli and julie. about 7 years ago eli and i rode the shark boat on the hudson river around the statue of liberty – and we still talk about how ridiculously fun it was to this day. so when we found out there was a speed boat tour in san francisco bay, we just had to check it out.


and it. was. awesome. it was such a thrill ride. we went super fast under the bay bridge and the driver pulled some insane donuts out in the bay. we were laughing so hard as our faces were getting blown around like crazy.

i know this picture is incredibly unflattering of all of us – but it captures the hilarity of the ride.

it was such a pretty evening at pier 39! we drove down to the mission so i could show eli and julie a different flavor of san francisco. we wandered through the street art in clarion alley on the way to dinner.


eli has this crazy good knack for finding cool restaurants. we ate yummy thai food in this neat joint that had grass on the walls.


we polished off the evening with (ever-epic) bi-rite ice cream. one of the best monday nights of the year, for sure.
