We met at Esperpento in the mission and had lovely garlicky food and very tasty sangria. They loved it, which made me happy. It has been a favorite place of mine to eat for about 10 years now.
We walked along valencia street after and stopped into Gestalt for a half-liter of Radeberger pils. Jenni and John had both biked from SF to Sausalito, over the golden gate bridge, that day, so I thought I should continue the bike theme by introducing them to more SF bike culture. Gestalt is a good example of a pro-bicycle bar. We followed that up with a visit to Zeitgeist, where we shared a pitcher of Boont Amber. Made even tastier by the fact it was poured by Beannie, freshly returned from the playa where I saw her almost every day for two weeks.
