Wanna Meet Me In San Francisco, The Day After Christmas?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 15.678% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Whenever I visit my mother in Vacaville, California, I feel guilty.  I have so many good friends in the San Francisco area, but my mother is protective of my time; she only gets to see her son six days a year, and those days are hers, goddammit.  So I have to disappoint many people who are like, “Oh, you’re in California?  Let’s meet up!” and I have to tell them that my Mom won’t let me.
However, since we have an extra-long trip this time, I’m free to play for one day.  But I have so many wonderful people in the area, I couldn’t meet them individually if I tried, and the last-minute scheduling would doubtlessly be chaotic and stressful.
So I’m going to try what Jay Lake does, which is to say, “I will be here, at this time, for dinner.  You are welcome to join me.  Even if we’ve never technically ‘met,’ I’d love to hang out.”
This time will be the evening of December 26th, somewhere in San Francisco.  I don’t know where yet, because I don’t know what restaurants are good for this sort of crazy meet-up, particularly the day after Christmas, so if you have any suggestions I’d love to hear them.  I’ll finalize the details later.
But basically, I’m letting you know that if you’d like to catch up with me, reserve the date of December 26th if it’s not already taken.  I miss you all.  Lots.  If you think you’re gonna be there, leave a comment or hit me up at theferrett@theferrett.com.
(EDIT: Yes, Gini will be there.  Of course she’ll be there!  I wouldn’t spend the holidays without my sweetie.)

    I would love to be able to meet you guys! Unfortunately I’ll be playing catch up at work paying for the wonderful day off on Christmas. My coworkers live in the city so if you want ideas for restaurants let me know. I only go there when I have to work out of the SF office and other than Ghirardelli’s chocolate, not sure what good food there is. Hopefully see you next time you’re around!
