Spring Break 2012

My Spring Break started last Thursday and it promises to be a grand 11 days of fun-filled times.  Here's what's occurred and what's going to occur - Thursday: saw A Room with a View at the Old Globe  - fabulous.  Friday: up to Los Angeles for a symphony performance by Andr√© Watts playing Grieg at the Walt Disney Concert Hall (and no, the concert hall isn't in the Disneyland park - it's on South Grand, the hall is designed by Frank Gehry and it's the home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic) - fabulous.  Saturday: back down to San Diego for the San Diego Crew Classic - quite nippy and long day but some great rowing.  Sunday: San Diego Zoo during the day, The Prado for dinner and then Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie at the Old Globe [Sheryl & Harvey White Theatre in the complex] - Zoo was packed, The Prado and Anna Christie were fabulous. Monday through Wednesday: after doc appointment off to San Francisco - 3 fold purpose for the trip - 1. visit and stay with some dear, dear friends 2. dinner at The French Laundry (reservations scored 3 months ago by the aforementioned to coincide with my visit) 3. See the following specific exhibitions at the deYoung, SFMOMA and the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford (planned by the aforementioned specifically for this trip).
