On Friday night I got off work early to attend my grandmother's art opening. She has some paintings hanging at Cafe Sapore in North Beach where she regularly meets her friends for lunch and scrabble marathons.
Every time she has an opening Marina bakes bread in the form of mermaids and sea creatures.
This is Herb. He's one of Marina's oldest friends. He's a retired architect with a beautiful loft style home in North Beach with two story windows overlooking the marina. "I like your glasses, Herb," I told him. "Everybody does," he replied.
Cafe Sapore serves the best smoked salmon sesame bagels with capers, red onions, tomatoes, and lemon juice.
The lovely lady on the right is Connie. "She's my oldest friend, she's 96!" Marina tells me. Connie is an inspiration to us all in her beautiful silk kimono.
