VMWorld Tuesday

Day two of the conference, and my San Francisco adventure!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and I have lots! Let's get started:

I passed this sign on the way to the conference. My kind of breakfast specials!


The crowd lining up for day 2.All that royal blue is the EMC crowd. 

Day 2 was the big keynote, and I got to see what a big crowd was really in attendance.

The Ferry Building:
After the conference today, I walked down to the ferry building and did a little browsing. I got to hit Boccalone for the salumi cone, and officially knocked off my first item from "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" list. 


The doors were closed up on this shop when I visited, such a pity!



Here's a view down the center of the ferry building.


The impeccably styled Imperial Tea Court


Amen, brother.


Meat pies, fruit pies... whatever. 
So good.


Fungi!


Tasty Salted Pig Parts. These captions write themselves!



The Salumi cone was super-tasty, but it wasn't dinner. Off to R&G Executive Lounge for Salt & Pepper Crab in Chinatown. Ohhh soo tasty. Like all the best moments in life, I was too busy enjoying it to take pictures. Suffice it to say, I have not made a mess like that at the dinner table since I was 5.

The tunnel that separates Chinatown from my hotel in the financial district.


If you make the last turn up a stairwell in the tunnel, you come up here. Tunnel Top. The finest bar in San Francisco as far as I'm concerned. Those old afficianados of the Pelican Club will know exactly what I'm talking about.


A shame this picture didn't come out better. I'm pretty sure these folks are all regulars at Tunnel Top. Yes, that's the whole size of the bar.


Bill's shenanigans are the stuff of legend. As soon as the video of the infamous "hat swap" is up on youtube I'll post it here. Suffice it to say, there is a very disappointed Yankees fan, whose hat got replaced by a Giants hat when he wasn't looking. I'm all for hometown pride, and anyone who messes with Yankee fans are good in my book.
