Kaan: The Weekend Adventure

This weekend was the last weekend Kaan will be a single man.

I wanted to have a night out on the town - something akin to a bachelor party on the fly since it was kind of sudden - but I thought it would be lame with just the two of us.

I invited a couple of Kaan's close friends in to town to stay with AJ and me. Sean and Chris arrived on Friday night and under the masquerade of "going out for a drink" we surreptitiously ran into Kaan in Mountain View. Kaan just about had a heart attack.

The next day (Saturday) we got up late and went to brunch. Then we headed up to the city. Four old friends looking to spend some time hanging out before Kaan took that big step...

We started out mellow; A hookah pipe and Turkish coffee over at the Pride of the Mediterranean near Japantown. Then we were off to asiaSF for some dancing. If you check out the site, you'll have to look carefully to see why this place is "not as it seems"... After the craziness wore off, we headed up to the Fairmont Hotel on top of Nob Hill for a drink and some live jazz.

All in all it was a great day with the only hang-up being parking. We found street parking everywhere we needed to eventually, but sometimes it was tough. Better than paying $3.00/15 minutes up on Nob Hill. Sheesh!

Sunday we went out with Kaan and bought a suit for the wedding. Then we came back, grabbed AJ and headed up to the city again to see some tourist stuff. We went to Pacific Heights and saw the mansions; We drove through the Presidio; We went down Lombard street; We went to Fisherman's Warf. Sean suggested the Fog City Diner so we hunted it down and ate dinner. It was surprisingly good! Then we went to Columbus street to Caffe Greco for some coffee and dessert. Kaan had been here before and it was really a hoppin' part of town we hadn't seen before. Cool!

Monday we brought Sean and Chris in to the office so they could see it and meet people. That was good - soon after that we had to take them to the airport.

It was one of the most eventful weekends ever.
