After working nonstop for far too many days in a row I took Labor weekend off and headed down to San Jose to help celebrate Bryan and Mette’s 15th wedding anniversary. The event had been a long time in the making since busy friends means difficult scheduling, but it was definitely worth the wait.
It started off (for me) less than ideally when my “quick” errand on Friday afternoon turned into a multi-hour ordeal for reasons too tedious to get into. However I eventually arrived in San Jose in time to help a little with setting up for the next day. On Saturday morning everyone met up at Psycho Donuts and things kicked off with a treasure hunt! We were split into teams and given a couple of hours to solve some clues and hunt for locations across downtown SJ. It was a ton of fun even if the team I was on came in last, alas. Mexican food (and drinks) followed while everyone rested their feet and chatted, and then we were led to the Hotel de Anza for a lovely recommitment ceremony and champagne. Finally we all headed over to their home for drinks and conversation. It was a really wonderful day and they really are the cutest couple.
I woke up Sunday morning feeling quite rested despite the running around and the drinking, I guess getting a proper eight hours makes up for all sorts of sins. We had some excellent Indian-Mexican fusion food at a place called Curry Pundits and then they dropped me off at Caltrain and off I went back to the city.
But despite having to work Monday and Tuesday both my weekend wasn’t over. I had made Joe Price promise we’d go to Death Guild and after flaking the week previous I had no excuses this time. I napped in preparation and we got in a solid two and a half hours at the DNA, about half of which I spent on the dance floor.
All in all a very good weekend.
