My track record for keeping secrets from Trevor being what it is, I completely surprised myself by completely surprising Trevor for his birthday this weekend.

First, a hike Friday in San Francisco at Land's End:














We had a gorgeous view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands for most of the hike. Plus, shipwrecks!

After the hike, we headed over to Nihon Whisky for Japanese-style tapas. We had this many whiskies to choose from:














Totally overwhelming, non?

After much deliberation, we had the Inchmurrin Scotch (smooth, silky, smoky -- divine), a Welsh whisky called Penderyn (too sweet but with a spicy finish), and a Nikka whisky from Japan (as expected, a little meh).

The comestibles, however, were consistently delish.

Yaki-Onigiri:














Of course, this being Trevor's birthday weekend and all, there was much merriment to be had on Saturday as well. Saw BlöödHag at Dark Carnival, ate sushi at one of our favorite places, shared ice cream with friends, hit a friend's 40th/graduation party, and had gorgeous drinks poured for us by the inimitable Mr. Lane at the Missouri.

Lovely lovely weekend.
