Thanksgiving in San Francisco

For Thanksgiving this year we returned to San Francisco and a great time was had by all.

We took a bay cruise that went under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz which provided amazing up close views… of the landmarks and also a few seagulls that were watching us on the boat.

The weather held up for most of the weekend with some rain on the drive home. Here are a few photos from the trip:

Mets pitchers battle serious heat at FDNY Fire Academy (VIDEO)

Mets COO Jeff Wilpon and pitchers Mike Pelfrey, R.A. Dickey, Bobby Parnell, and Dillon Gee trained as firefighters at the FDNY Fire Academy training center on Randall’s Island on January 20.

Talk about battling some serious heat! The Mets players and C.O.O. strapped on firefighter gear to climb up FDNY ladders, battle a blaze, and rappel down the side of a building. Check it out:

And now some screenshots of the Metsies in action:

Looks like a cool team-building event for several Mets players, or as my girlfriend calls it, “Really smart thing to do right before spring training!”

Dinner at Cheeburger Cheeburger

The other night I had dinner at Cheeburger Cheeburger, a restaurant that let’s you create your own cheeseburgers and shakes.

Apparently, they’ve been around for 23 years, however only 2 of those in the New York area.

I ordered a cheddar cheeseburger with lettuce, onion, chopped garlic, artichoke hearts, and BBQ sauce. Delicious!
