San Francisco/Bay Area Trip Report

"Finally", you're saying to yourself, "Finally she's updating her damn blog"

San Francisco was a very, very nice weekend. Landed in San Jose on Friday 2 hours late but then checked into the hotel and my sister, Corrie, picked us up and we went down to Pier 29 (I'm pretty sure that's the pier, the famous one??) Anywho, enjoyed a nice dinner with my sister, did a little shopping, was surprised and happy to see a Michael Goddard gallary on the pier, an original is only 40-50K but ONE day I WILL own one (or two : )

Saturday saw us going to Lucky Chances casino to do my review on the room. You'll have to wait for the book to get all the juicy details, but let me just say that this is, by far, my favorite casino/card room that I've reviewed so far. The dealers knew what they were doing, the floor knew what they were doing.....there for about 6 hours and only heard 1 dealer call for floor once during the whole day/evening.

I did get spanked in the 1/2 NL game though, but it really wasn't all my fault. I kept getting awesome hands, but the opponent always had better. Flush? No good! Full house? No good! So I moved down to 3/6 LHE and had much better luck/time there.

Sunday we headed to the wine country and spent the afternoon/evening with Dr. Gary Furness from RGP, had a lovely time meeting him and his wife and his 2 adorable children. We really enjoyed ourselves this day and low and behold I FINALLY found a wine that I liked. Of course, I couldn't tell you the name or even the vineyard but I LOVED it! Turns out it was a dessert wine and that's why I liked it due to it's sweetness, had a pear like taste to it and so I bought a bottle.

Monday found us at Bay 101, which I absolutely HATED. I don't really want to go into to many details but the floor was very condescending and rude to me, IMO, and also refused to give an interview for the book. This was the first time I had run across this and it kind of shocked me. The information that I'm looking for is not a secret, they actually had print outs with the information I needed, but they just simply refused to talk to me. That set me off to begin with, but then it got worse when the floor cut me off after a few shots and then the floor manager looked me right in the eye and stated "Oh please, you were drunk when you got here, you absolutely reeked!!" This stunned me as I had had only 2 drinks before getting to Bay 101 and that was at least 2 hours prior to getting there!!

Those 2 drinks were had over dinner with Porsche Dan from RGP, always nice to meet a fellow RGP'r and this was no exception. He made the reservations for a lovely restaurant not too far from Bay 101 and after a good meal and great conversation was when we headed to the card room.

Traveled home on Tuesday and got ready to head to Atlantic City with ATLARGE.

Truth be told, we were so busy traveling everywhere else that we were hardly in San Jose. We actually stayed in Redwood City, and just traveled back and forth from the city to the hotel, only in San Jose for dinner that one night and to visit Bay 101. I just can't remember the name of the restaurant we ate at, but the city itself was very pretty. I may move to that area one day, I really really liked it.

Same here, I wish I could move back, but home prices = un fucking believable. Be prepared to pay 500K for a run down shack. But I love the city, I always will, and Ill always wish i can go back.
