Also I had a nice time at the Castro Street Fair, a drag queen gave me jello shots and I hung out at a couple of my fave bars, Lucky 13 and the Mint for some karaoke with karaokegal afterwards. Frankly, I don't want to buy drinks at fairs because they're always overpriced and you have to worry about bumping into people and spilling them. also, I ran into one of my atheist buds on the Bart on the way home that evening and he told me all about his recent trip to China which was pretty fascinating.
Chow still has great food but I could not believe they were out of the first three things I ordered (chicken salad sandwich, veggie quiche and salmon) so I finally just made it brunch and ordered pancakes. They were excellent pancakes, with real maple syrup and not that damn fake stuff, but still, they shouldn't be out of all those other things by 11:30 in the morning, should they?
