We found out that the CalNeva is closing in September for a year long remodel by the owners of Calistoga Ranch. Unfortunately that means we probably won't be able to stay there anymore so it made us appreciate the weekend even more.
I also left my laptop at home so I had long no-coding weekend. It's been a busy past couple months as I've made the transition from being a Front-end developer to a software engineer. More on that in this post.

Since I'm writing this in October and just re-capping the past year, here are the quick highlights:
-Meeting up with Ruth and dancing our butts off.
-Riding bikes to have dinner at Uchi with my old coworker, Mike.
-Seeing Seth MacFarlane promote "Ted" with Marky Mark as his special guest.
-Enjoying a Bloody Mary at the Iron Cactus with my hotel-mate Kim O. from Colorado.
-Anthony Bourdain's session on "Digital Debauchery."
After Austin I got to spent some time in Chicago. I finally got to see pregnant Mandy and meet her daughter.
Lisa also rallied Dan and Ducky to hang out. I continued onward to Ann Arbor to see Joc and Jake, even got to spend some time in the Arb, and I spent the rest of the weekend with Dana, Joe and the parents in Detroit.

The first day of the new job finally came and for the first 4 days I commuted about 1 1/2 - 2 hours each way to Burlingame. Luckily they moved the office to San Francisco the following week.
I also snuck in a fun weekend in Tahoe before the end of the month. Kim B. and Matt were visiting from Colorado so we rented a cabin that ended up being near the Cal Neva. We had wedding pictures taken at this stump.

Better late than never! 2012 is almost half over so I'm doing the quick recap...
I also held a demo/workshop during their Waza developer event at Yoshi's. Definitely a fun experience! Other guest artists included a 3-D origami artist and a photographer with a Mammoth Polaroid camera. Todd designed a Fillmore sized poster for the Waza and the musical guest.
I also lost my job at CHOW.com and spent the next couple of months looking for a new job and enjoyed the much needed break from working.

Next stop CU Sushi in Berkeley. It was cheap and good and filled the craving. So we remember: Philadelphia Roll (Cream cheese, asparagus, avocado fresh salmon on top) and the Green Monster (Shrimp tempura, masago inside avocado on top). They've got a lot of baked rolls for people who are so into the raw fish rolls.
Afterwards we joined the crew at Todd & Becky's house for an East Coast New Year's at 9pm. We left a little bit after that to spend Midnight at our own house. It was a really clear night so we could see the fireworks in San Francisco.

We had too much fun on Christmas that the morning after yielded a few bad hangovers. Kevin made a ham, I made a couple veggie dishes, Andrea brought a broccoli cheese and rice casserole, and Becky came with her "ugly" balls. Then there was Sean who didn't stop pouring lemondrop shots made with rosemary infused simple syrup...
