Meet and greet at Tadich with future ex-wife. She too is fascinated by the Leland Yee extravaganza and wonders how all this could happen.
When there's cash, drugs, firearms, gangs and politicians, no matter how big anything is possible. Then again, this caper is a mind-blower.
Herb Caen should be, (and would be), holding court in the back booth with Willie Brown, Walter Shorenstein, Wilkes Bashford and all the Alioto clan; a good, old-fashioned SF schmooze.
*Wonder what the cops are talking about this Friday night? They do talk too you know.
*Savage had a good line Friday: Might not be a good time to bring your smartphone camera around Chinatown tonight.
*Tadich tactic: after dinner snagging a whole loaf of that beautiful bread from the guys in the white jackets. The operative word, of course, is a ten-spot.
*I can not only sense rain. I smell rain. Good, all the pollen is neutered this weekend by the impending downpour. Bad news? Storm desk stories by the weekend TV crews desperate for Mill Valley flooding.
*Every place is packed to the rafters: Tadich, John's, I'm sure Le Colonial and Waterbar too. Boulevard? Good luck. Kokkari? Ditto. Try the Blue Ship and a burger and Guinness although I'm not a beer guy. You wanted to know, I answered.
