I thought I missed the era for practicing civil disobedience on Castro. Turns out I was wrong. I was in a bar when the Giants won last night and a crowd spilled out onto the street and stopped traffic for an hour, while performing acrobatics and tossing toilet paper rolls over power lines. It was a happy crowd, I might add. Elsewhere in the city there were bonfires being lit and pandemonium ensued.
What frills, what frocks!
What furs, what rocks!
That French champagne!
So good for the brain!
Thanks to The International Festival of Authors and the fine folks at Dundurn Books for a very swell party at the Harbour Castle Hilton tonight.
