On the Road: SF to LA
Post-Pearl-and-Simon's-wedding-aftermath. Enjoyed the unexpectedly elegant lobby of the Sofitel one more time as we all checked out about the same time, then up to Cafe Flore for lunch with Matt's brother and fiance. Very good breakfast there and got to see their surprisingly nice house smack in the middle of San Francisco.
The usual drive back to Los Angeles, but we did a little stop in Bakersfield to meet up with Alicia's brother at Famous Dave's BBQ. We traded the hipster San Francisco atmosphere for the more simple country-ish feel of the Central Valley, but with five different BBQ sauces and a tasty set of rib ends, that was all good. We somehow managed to walk out normally rather than waddling out like we were about to explode!
Then the last few miles back to Los Angeles in the rental crapbox. Not that we can complain too much about it, we had 32.3mpg on the drive up and probably 33mpg or 34mpg on the way back!
