San Francisco weekend

As I mentioned in my previous post, this past weekend I went to San Francisco and I saw some of my awesome friends, stayed at a really cool Hotel in the City, went to the Ferry Building for the usual bread/cheese/coffee combo, got some legendary Chinese food at Nan King and some awesome sushi at the sushi boat restaurant. As Stephen Colbert would say, "Great trip... or Greatest trip?!!"

Snow in Canada before leaving

Man it's cold in Canada!

Good times

Sushi Boat restaurant I went to with John Yee, and he ate this set right after I took the picture

Possibly the funniest thing all weekend, the sushi boat restaurant sends around other stuff that is not sushi on the boats. Like this slice of cheesecake, which seems so out of place.

My Hotel

Hahahaha!!!!!!!!! Ok so these hotels are nuts, and they have animal-pattern robes in the rooms that you can wear. Obviously I had to meet the customs of the hotel.

Cool mirror

Art gallery at the hotel

Beautiful weather!! It was -35 Celcius in Toronto, and 19 Celcius in San Francisco!!
