John and I recently went back to the Bay Area for a wedding. Since it was our first time back since moving to the east coast, we made it a big trip and spent a few days playing tourist, catching up with friends, and visiting our favorite spots.
On Saturday afternoon, we visited Dolores Park with some friends. Unfortunately, half the park was closed for renovations, but we still found a good spot with an excellent view of the city. Oh man, I sure do miss San Francisco and its giant, almost the size of my upper arm burritos. Sorry, didn’t get any photos… it takes two hands to handle that thing. ;)
There were several people selling goodies at the park, but the most entertaining was the coconuts and rum guy with the crazy dreadlocks. For $12, he’ll hack open a coconut with a machete, fill it up with Captain Morgan, and ta da, a boozy coconut drink for you. Maybe it’s just me, but watching the little show he puts on every time someone buys a coconut seems much more appealing than the coconut water and rum cocktail.
