Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay

I’m not even a week into my new relocation but I thought I’d take the time to give those interested an update on the San Francisco Move: Phase 1.

I arrived in SF late Tuesday night.  With a light load at work, most of the week was spent at home preparing my new room.  With my new tv (46 inch Bravia), bed, and dresser, my room quickly started to come together and feel like my new home.

Friday I headed to the SF office.  I knew that I would probably not meet many new co-workers, but I thought it would be nice to start learning my way around the office area.  I also needed to receive my new badge.  The day started poorly with checking into an incorrect desk, but thanks to Guest Services, I was able to find a great seat overlooking the bay.  Work went by quickly with few in person meetings, but many reached out to me online to welcome me and that was appreciated.

After work, I met May at a near by Muni station.  While waiting on her, I was able to enjoy the sound of a marching band (a subsection of University of California’s) play Holiday songs and some Chicago.  This was something I never had the chance to enjoy in Atlanta because it was not a walkable or transit friendly city.  Once May arrived, we headed for dinner and a movie.

Saturday meant a day of football (go Bama) and then meeting up with one of my roommate’s friends for a birthday dinner.  Dinner was simply amazing.  I don’t think I have had a bad meal yet with all of my trips here.  This dinner was to Koh Samui & the Monkey.  I’m not usually in the mood for thai food but I’m told that’s because I’ve never had the chance to enjoy good thai food.  Well those people were quite right.  I enjoyed the Bag of Gold appetizer, based on the birthday boy’s recommedation, and the Miracle Duck.  I must state that the combination of pineapple and red curry sauce is the greatest thing this planet has to offer.  Maybe I’m overhyping it but everyone who tried it loved it just as much.

Today meant that I needed to find a good location to watch my Falcons play (we lost, I don’t want to talk about it).  I found a few locations that had the Sunday NFL ticket, but the closest was the Mucky Duck Pub.  It’s quite weird to go to a pub at 10:30 in the morning on Sunday to watch a football game.  I was not the only person there.  I quickly developed ADD with so many TVs showcasing so many different games but it was a great experience.  Two Eagles fans were present and they were great to have around even if we lost and lost bad.  I quickly realized I had found a great location to watch any and every NFL game that I would need.

As I said at the start, I’m barely a week into this change in my life, but I’m enjoying it.  I miss friends and family, of course, but I’m excited to call a new city home.  I’ll need to continue to get out to meet people and learn the best parts of the Golden Gate City.

I think you will love the walkable, transit friendly city. Have fun!
