I'm in Berkeley this week and had Cheese Board Pizza today! That said, these days I more typically split my time between island living in the Pacific Northwest and a little enclave a bit north of San Diego. Good to hear from you.
A quick hello and a photo of an invite to remind one of the former SF glory days. Notice the dress code.
I'm not sure who made it but this bag was retailed by Paul Stuart back in the 80s. I'd love to have more luggage like this. Not sure why I'm posting ... I know this is an old thread. Sadly these kinds of treads are no more.
