Well I am out in the Bay Area again.

Working at Flock HQ.  Mostly preparing for partner projects for the week, fly out Friday night.

Since it is so much cheaper to fly if you stay over a weekend.  I came out Saturday night and stayed with Mike & Margi up in SF in Beral Hights.

I tried bring 12 bottles of beer in my back made for 6 and two died in the trip.  So I had beer soaked cloths. (1 Koelsh and 1 Hefeweizen lost).

Sunday was fun.  Wound up going to Dim Sum at Koi Palace.  And had many misadventures navigating Daly City. (keys, cell phones, out of date directions, ...)

Johnathan, Brett and I enjoyed the sunny warm (for me, not for Californians) weather in Golden Gate Park.

I actually got to have good Chicago Style Pizza in SF at Little Star.  I tend to categorize Chicago style Pizza's into Giordano's (my favorite), Edwardo's, Gino's, and "Modern Chicago Uno's" (Uno's is generally credited as the creator of Chicago style pizza, but the chains stores out of Chicago don't serve the same product, nor does Uno's in Chicago compared to what it ued to make).  Little Star is a pretty good take on Edwardo's style.

So in case you havn't guessed the most fun part of going back to the US for me is Friends and Food.

At Elise's place (Elise, Margie, Mike, Johnathan)

One of my old roomates from Chicago is in town on Saturday less than 24 hours after I leave to go back to Germany.

I do come out several times a year to the bay area. Thank goodness for direct flights from MUC.

If you are in Munich definatly look me up!

Will do. schlafmanko is itching to go back to Germany, so if we're in the area we'll be sure to make it work. Too bad there's no diving in Munich. :)

I'm really surprised you say Little Star is like Edwardo's. What it reminds me of is My Pi on Clark Street. (I'm glad it doesn't remind me of Edwardo's, because I don't like Edwardo's very much.)

Edwardo's

I think of the big chains as the major definers of the genre.

The heavy amount of tomato on top of the upper layer of the stuffed Pizza is more Edwardo's style. My favourite at Edwardo's was the stuffed spinach. Which they had on the menu, but I did not order.

It has been a long time since I was at Edwardo's I mostly remember that I didn't like it as much as giordano's. I cnnot remember if I ever went to My PI. It sound familiar.
