Cyrus, I went to The Trappist

Last night Curt and I met friends John and Nicole for drinks. We first hit Pacific Coast Brewery for a beer and a bite to eat. Then to The Trappist--a new Belgian beer bar in downtown Oakland. The place is pretty small. We had to stand for a bit. But eventually we got some seats. The beer I had was really yummy--had a slight sweet taste to it.
So the actual bar is beautiful. Brick wall with amazing woodwork. It is just gorgeous. I didn't get a close look at the bartop--but from what I could tell the wood was beautiful.

Today is my last day of work ... then I have the next 11 days off. We have some good stuff planned: Second annual Cheesemas with Phil and Lisa tonight; Jim and Stef come through town tomorrow night (yummy dinner will be had); cocktail party at Monica's tomorrow night; Sunday taking it easy--probably meeting my old college buddy Dan for drinks in our neighborhood; Monday (Christmas Eve) I will be taking a yoga class in the afternoon, then Curt and I will spend Christmas Eve together on our own, we will have the traditional Poff shrimp dinner; Tuesday (Christmas Day) tamales for breakfast (my family tradition), then in the afternoon off to our friends' Alexa and Darius' Open House; Wednesday: Lunch and knitting with the girls (Alicia, Sue and Alexa); Thursday: Scrapbooking with Alex and Mia at Mia's; Friday: Hanging out with Mia in my hood; Friday evening Curt and our friend Dan from Salem will attend the Emerald Bowl and then we might have a drink or something afterward.
Whew! OK, I am done for now. I will also do some studying each morning. I am on a roll. So I should be done soon. Oh, and I will be hitting the gym today. (It is only closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.)

Happy Holidays everyone!

Jodie--Onyx is very generous and is giving all of its employees time off between Christmas and New Year's. This is the first year they are doing this.
