In October of this year, my wife and I went up to San Francisco to see St. Paul & The Broken Bones play at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park. Here's our half-day excursion.
A concert in the park calls for a fortified breakfast beforehand, so we went to Farmerbrown near Union Square.
Soul food in the heart of San Francisco.
I had the buffet, featuring chicken and waffles and grits.
Pumpkin moonshine cocktail, in a mason jar.
My wife's dish, which she loved.
High schoolers playing some mean jazz.
We walked across the street to the Mikkeller Bar after.
"I'll have this one."
St. Paul & The Broken Bones took the stage without their singer for a musical warm-up.
Enter Paul Janeway, aka James Brown reincarnated as a nerdy white dude.
Great show by an up-and-coming band.
More excursions coming up soon.
