Night at the Circus

Despite my unwavering fear and hatred of clowns (my child will never have a clown-themed birthday party … sorry future son or daughter), I absolutely love the circus. Well, the circus that is Cirque de Soleil. My family and I have been religious in our attendance to almost every single production over the past 15 years and while my level of flexibility is constrained to the occasional downward facing dog, I still believe that someday, I will shoot to stardom in my debut as a 4’8” contortionist.

Last night, my parents and I saw the newest Cirque de Soleil show, Amaluna, at AT&T Park. As expected, we were totally memorized by the outrageous costumes, sets and rubber-band-like people running around the pop-up tent. For anyone who hasn’t been, this show is a must.

Of course, a night at the circus could never be enjoyed on an empty stomach, so we managed to squeeze in a quick bite at one of SOMA’s newest spots, TBD. Being the little sister restaurant of AQ, we knew we couldn’t really go too wrong, especially with a bottle of 2009 Domaine St. Claire Syrah (“Etincelle” Crozes-Hermitage). Thanks Mom & Dad.

 It may sound overly simple, but the bread, butter & seaweed from the grill is a must try.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. Admiring the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you provide.

    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
