San Francisco Chronological - A Superhuman Music & Food Journal


In a moment of disbelief while flying home this past Monday, my travel partner and I jotted down a chronological list of the individual things we'd accomplished while in San Francisco over the weekend. The list included my deejay set at Wish and a superhuman amount of sightseeing thanks to our overly generous guides Mo and Garwin - who thankfully hada car, killer driving skills and influence with the gods of weather, parking meters and giant door men. Amazingly we counted more than 50 unforgettable 'moments' achieved in under three days. I'm missing you already San Francisco!!!
