Weekends are not for resting

Last weekend was another busy one. Friday night we were invited to Shabbat dinner. Some dear straight friends of E invited us and another straight couple over for nice evening of food and conversation.

Saturday began with a 6 mile run and then coffee with Frontrunners, the GLBT running group. We then changed into some nice clothes for a day and evening in San Francisco. First was a matinee performance of a seldom done comedy called "The Butter and Egg Man" by George S. Kaufman. It is about a hick from the sticks who becomes a Broadway producer (1925). It was done by the Young Conservatory students at ACT. Cute show.

Next on the schedule was dinner and opera. We met Huston at a restaurant near the SF War Memorial Opera House. Huston is only the second blogger we have met in person. What a fun and charming man. Some younger, 30-something "daddy" should rope and land this guy. The opera is was Beethoven’s "Fidelio". Out of the dozen operas we have seen so far, this rises to be one of our favorite top three or four.

We traveled back to SF on Sunday morning for a tasty brunch with a couple we have gotten to know at the GLBT synagogue in the city. Then we went to the Castro and shopped for a couple of hours. I can’t repeat here all the things we bought, but let’s just say Hanukkah came early. That evening we had another wonderful meal with a new couple that are in the process of moving in together. It was a fun day but one note for the future. We have to take better maps/directions, addresses and phone numbers of where we are going. This would avoid much angst the driver and passenger experienced trying to locate and navigate to the different addresses.

Nice to hear some enthusiasm for "Fidelio." I love the piece, but it's rather common to hear opera lovers put it down as structrued badly or not having any really good music.
