It's the morning of the Chinese New Year parade, the year of the Dragon begins. Chinese parade: http://www.chineseparade.com/
Beer was accompanied by delicious Japenese noodles eaten at a hole in the wall restaurant in Japantown. The best noodle bowls and be sure to ask for the chili sauce!
Wine: I discovered that wine really is the best accompaniment to garlic and you have to really like garlic to eat at The Stinking Rose. This mostly Italian style restaurant puts garlic in everything on the menu, including it's 40 clove chicken. Warning! Don't go here on a date. I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce which was decadent to say the least but I highly recommend it but don't recommend the Bagna Calda. It is NOT real Italian Bagna Calda, not even close to it.

An early eaving showing of Beach Blanket Babaloyn followed by a nightcap at the famous Condor Club (where my family's name is on a plaque on the door for being the first owners) and our night is complete. What a day...to say the least!!http://www.condorsf.com/
