Playing Hookie

I'm going to be on a solo trip to India next week, and consequently will be separated from Her Radiantness on our anniversary.

So as a substitute, we decided to take last Friday off to loaf about in San Francisco, and paint the town a frivolous shade of 0xff0000. After mangling a spot of dim-sum, and wandering about Chinatown during the afternoon, we caught some nice late light up at Coit Tower, on Telegraph Hill.

Dinner was at this little Senegalese restaurant that we've been dying to try out for the longest time. And since we'd planned to spend the night in SF, it provided the perfect opportunity to grab tickets on Saturday morning for SFJazz's 2008 Spring Season. Here's what's on the agenda:
  • March 8: Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, & Jack DeJohnette
  • March 14: "Tyner & Taps"; McCoy Tyner Trio with Savion Glover
  • March 15: SFJazz Collective
  • April 11: Wayne Shorter Quartet with Imani Winds
  • April 13: Ana Moura
  • April 17: Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, & Jack DeJohnette
  • May 31: Miles from India
  • June 8: Fiesta Venezuela
We've even got Coeman coming up for Tyner and the Collective, which means I've inadvertently contributed to The Grand Procrastination...

When are you getting here? Any trips to Hyderabad planned?

I get there on the 24th, but this is just a really short visit to hang with the hive.

I'll be making another trip in Feb, and probably will be in Hyderabad during the first week.
