Nothing on to do list was completed

On Thursday our friend Jen and her friend Melinda came into town. They stayed with us while visiting the city. Those two had a list of 27 items and I think they crossed a good majority off the list, which I was impressed with.
Thursday night we hit Pizzaiola. We got there about 7:30 and they had at least an hour wait. So we left our names and headed to The Trappist for a drink--an awesome Belgian beer bar in downtown Oakland. Then back to Pizzaiola. They had some crazy pizza--but man, it was so good.
Saturday morning I hit the gym, then ran a few errands, including taking Joey to the groomer, which he wasn't happy about. After that I met my friend Jennifer for lunch in our hood. It was a good visit.
That evening we took them to Sushiya for awesome sushi. It was a delicious dinner.
Sunday morning we headed to the Thai Buddhist Temple for early lunch. After that we headed up to the Marin Headlands for a glorious view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Then back to the hood. We headed to McNally's to meet a friend of Jen's for drinks. McNally's has the best Bloody Mary's.
After drinks to Market Hall to get some supplies for dinner: fresh raviolis. So yummy. We had a bunch of appetizers--mostly stuff that was in the fridge and needed to be eaten. We had bread, cheese, crackers, salami, grapes, etc. Then we cooked the raviolis, which were so good!
Last night I drove Jen and Melinda to the Amtrak station. The got home to bed late this morning.
We enjoyed hosting you, ladies. You are welcome back anytime.
