Emily came to stay for a week while on a conference. Keith arrived later in the week for a night. It was so great to see them. We don’t know Emily very well but Keith is a long-time friend so we offered for her to treat us like a hotel while she was in town for her conference. She arrived on the doorstep with a kilo of Supreme beans – we welcomed her with open arms!
When Keith arrived I showed him some good coffee – we hung out at Blue Bottle Mint for a while and got to watch the full siphon process a couple of times. Funny watching all the tourists in there. Emily organised a tour of Lucasfilm for us – The Mister was particularly excited to see posters and backing images for a lot of the films we’ve seen and to get up close to a stormtrooper and R2D2.
We had a great dinner at The Presido Social Club – a cool wooden-floored space in what could’ve been an old lawn bowling club with tables for 4 along the window. We had a bottle of champagne and I had macaroni cheese.
We dropped the off at the bus on Friday night to continue their trip through the States.
