Anyway, we kept things casual. Lots of going out to eat and I don't think I had one bad meal in Oakland. Highlights includes steak sandwiches and potato puffs (aka fried balls of mashed potatoes !!!) at Gregoire, banana splits from Fentons, the best egg salad sandwich ever from Summer Kitchen in Berkeley, a scoop of chocolate fudge marshmallow ice cream at Ici, absurdly good macaroni and cheese at Homeroom (they specialize in mac and cheese so there are a bunch of different kinds you can get. Why aren't there more restaurants like this??), aaannndd I'll stop right there. Besides eating we mainly spent time just lounging and hanging out, watching terrible reality TV shows (Glee Project and Teen Mom) and not so terrible TV (Summer Heights High and Girls).
Wish that my lady lived closer, fingers crossed that they move back to Southern California in the near future.
