Any Bay Area readers?

I’ll be in San Franscisco fro Jan. 16 – Jan. 21, for no good reason at all except that five years ago I spent six months there working on a research project at UCSF and have an amazing array of fine memories from that stint, and haven’t visited a number of good friends since. I don’t have any particular itinerary in mind–I’ll have to keep up with the work assignments I’ve got and I’ll be running with this or that person probably every day, but if there are any readers out there interested in hitting a coffee joint that doesn’t start with the letters S-T-A, I’m enjoy meeting you.

That is all. I’m in one of those phases where it seems to make sense to leave the florid bashing of the squint-eyed and the slack-jaw to others, but these periods never last long.
