Then suddenly...we encountered an issue, RG is a huge lightweight and we have to pace her drinking and we were having so much fun and at so many locations we somehow got her just over the top and it mess's with her blood balance and I had to take her out for some fresh air, it almost became a medical emergency when one of the sharp eyed bar tenders gave her a red bull which she downed half and was back to normal in 10 minutes. Well that incident caused me to miss 3 songs I really wanted to hear "We are Not Alone, Brown Moses (this is a biggy for me), and Heavenly Bank Account" which we came back in at the end of.

We discussed this and realized she had a glass of wine and a mini shot at the room, a glass of wine at dinner, we stopped at one of those neat little shops on the corner and got a little smoke=able (they are as frequent as Starbucks in San Francisco), she had a glass of wine at the bar, and two plastic cups at the show...while she's a 3 glass's of wine girl, 5 glass's didn't seem over the top in a 3+ hour period...But some investigation of the picture from before the show revealed a drink we did not know she had and that glass is be full...
:shock:

Image

Zomby Woof - I Have Been in You - Broken Hearts Are for Assholes - Big Swifty :arrow:

Image

Image

And the crowd cried out for more... :D

The encore starts with Muffin Man with what do you know Italian guitarist Daniele Gottardo who happens to be Gretchen's husband... 8)

Image

The rest of the encore; Black Napkins (we did some serious dirty dancing to this one) the horn version extended to the max which it is RG's favorite Zappa song, we danced very provocatively (Baby wasn't in the corner... :wink: ) we even caught Scheila getting a kick out of our dedication to it all - the always fun Montana - Sofa No. 1 (made me think of Dean)

Image

Image

Take a bow... :o

Image


Back to the Bar... :shock:

Image

I hadn't shot pool in a while but I still kicked ass... :smoke:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We really liked this piece hanging in the bar which by the way was playing only Frank Zappa Music... 8)

Image

Classic view of Golden Gate from back in the day... :idea:

It's a Thursday Special Addition of Plook on Tour DZ Concert 3 Part Special Addition (that will actually take 5 Parts)... :o

A look back at the days before Social Distancing... :(

There must be a morning after... :wink:

We got up realitively early grabbed some coffee and headed down to the Wharf... :arrow:

Image

RG completely recovered from me accidently ruffying her... :smoke:

Image

We saw the Rock (not the actor)... :P

Image

Apparently I got the crabs... :shock:

Image

And gave them to RG... :mrgreen:

Image

We checked out Pier 39... :)

Image

We decided to have an early lunch at the Pier Market with Clam Chooder, a dozen Clams, and Crab Cakes (the pic didn't come out but it was marvelous darling)... :D

Image

Wonderful day, wonderful view... 8)

Image

Knob Hill... :)

Image

We are thoroughly convinced this Rocket Boat the Bay Rocket that seats between 60 and 80 people on the deck of a giant Cigarette Boat in basically fold out chairs is an insurance nightmare... :lol:

Image

There is plenty of cool unique architecture on the Wharf... :idea:

Image

Thankfully we had flowers in our hair... :wink:

Image

A definite Landmark... :!:

Image

The view from our room was quite different for us we usually stay at the water, we went Metro on this trip... :o

Image

Image

When I was young at my sisters wedding in 1977 I saw one of their friends jump in a Corvair and drive backwards down the street (well) at high speed, I immediately thought is I have to be able to do that and so I am to this day an expert at driving backwards and backing in...the hotel had a challenging parking lot at best, a very step driveway, impossibly small spots, structural columns in all the wrong places, it is a virtual obstacle course...so I took my Equinox whipped it around on the street and backed in at a clip and stuck the landing, RG was impressed but she already knew I had mad skills... :mrgreen:

It's a Tuesday Special Addition of Plook on Tour DZ Concert 3 Part Special Addition (that will actually take 5 Parts)... :o

Looking back at the days before Social Distancing... :(

Valentines Day Dinner... :D

When we were walking around the Wharf on that Friday we decided we would like to eat at Alioto's, it's a popular really nice Restaurant on the second floor of a building they have a Mezzanine floor so it is quite elevated with a fantastic view.

We walk in at 2 or 3 pm and ask about dinner reservations and the gal kind of chuckled and said they were booked but they had an opening at 9:30 PM, we said we were looking for something earlier... about that time a guy and another girl that worked there walked up and they began to talk and they asked my name, so I gave them my long ass Italian last name with to many vowels and they said be here at 6:30 PM and we will get you in.

I told RG that last name has gotten me a lot of good tables in restaurants and she said she was amazed we got in, then she saw our table when we returned that evening and she said you weren't kidding we scored a prime window table with a view of the wharf and sunset on the Golden Gate Bridge...
8)

Alioto's Restaurant... :arrow:

Image

The Table... :o

Image

The View... :D

Image

Image

A rose for my girl... :)

Image

Three clicks, earth, sky, ocean...... :wink:

Image

She had Rigatoni Bolognese and it was phenomenal... :!:

Image

I went with Seared Ahi Tuna and it was awesome, I'm not a big rice guy but it was great too... 8)

Image

This was something I never saw before, who knows what it is... :?: :?: :?:

Image

RG looking like she is plotting world domination or she's mad at the waiter... :mrgreen:

Image

What a great date... :D

Image

Back on the Wharf... :arrow:

Image

Image

Image

We walked the piers... 8)

Image

This place was across the street from the wharf and two piers over from us and the TV was so big I could tell what was going on in the basketball game... :shock:

Image

We found Scomas at the end of a pier and they had a classic bar in back, the bar tenders name was Nick, fuggedaboutit!... :smoke:

Image

Image

This Gem was out back... :o

Image

RG working the Pier... :wink:

Image

The City on the Hill... 8)

Image


Well hopefully we last long enough for more Plook on Tour Episodes...

The golf courses are closed, the house is stuffed with goods from my daily trips to the store, I already wrestled the Jellyfish this morning, it's sprinkling outside so working out there is off, TV gets to be a bit much even though we have seen some excellent movies lately, started a new book my friend sent me about 70's icon surfer Jerry Lopez, I'm just a little at a loss here for what to do next, where is I normally know what is going on three days in advance... :?

It's a Plook on Tour Tuesday Special... :o

A Trip in the Way Back Machine... :shock:

April 7 1978... 8)

Seldom can one remember what they were doing on specific day a long time ago...but I know eactly what I did 42 years ago today... :shock:

It was a Friday I had went surfing early that morning and still worked a full shift that day. I was 19 skating, surfing, and working every day if possible, I was dating girl that went to Downey High School where the freeways meet. She was 16 going on 17 and before you judge me this was actually quite normal at that time, her mom liked me and we were beating the boots and everyone knew it and no one cared.

I had tickets for a Budgie concert at the Whiskey A Go Go, all my friends were going but Debbie and I were going in her moms car separately. When I got home that evening after stopping by the a local pool to skateboard Debbie had called and said she had came down with something and she was really sick and couldn't go.

Well that was a wrench in the works I knew I couldn't squeeze in any of the other vehicles since they were all full beyond max load, plus I had an extra ticket, what to do? I had to find a likely candidate who had a ride and would take the offer on a dime, there were several candidates because our posse was very large, maybe close to two dozen in our inner circle, therefore our extended group of friends was at least 100 to 200 people.

Roger immediately came to mind because he was the guitar player in a popular local Garage Band that played cutting edged rock (for the time) and in fact was the headliners at my 18th birthday party (we had 3 bands, but that's another story). Of course Roger agreed and we went to the show Budgie blew the lid off as always and that show actually is a live album they released.

Roger really liked the show, whats not to like about the original Speed Heavy Metal Band, so we drove back to Norwalk got off the 605 Freeway and were about to turn left for my moms house when he looked at me asked, "would you like to go to my girlfriends apartment, she has a roommate?" Well being a young red blooded American Boy I said yes and we turned right instead of left.

The roommate was Terri, it was that seldom seen thing called love at first sight (lets not kid ourselves it was at least 50% lust at first sight) Rodger and and his girl Rose went in her room and Terri and I talked for hours and horsed around a little with some making out but I moved cautiously, I knew this was the girl I could spend some time with. I would have never guessed it would turn out to be 36 years, I called Debbie and broke up with her the next day and began a mission to win a girl.

I can tell you this, I would have never imagined on a day so long ago that a random turn of a car to right instead of to left could change my life so profoundly and lead me to such a wonderful being that enriched my life so much, I still thank God to this day that we made the right turn.
