It was one of those magical festival days when everything was just perfect. Some of the highlights:
- Stunning weather (if a little warm for our tastes)
- A performance by Bhi Bhiman, probably one of the only local SF musicians we know and love
- A new session beer discovery: Linden Beers' Black Lager - this delicious beer which is dark in color is very drinkable and surprisingly refreshing on a hot summer day. We are committed to finding a place to buy/drink this beer from a new Oakland brewery.
- The picked tomatoes from Saul's deli were insane. I didn't even know that picked tomatoes existed, and I was hooked after a single bite.
We also stumbled upon a great housewares store, The Homesteader, in Rockridge. We scored 2 items for our home/garden - a vintage '50s kitchen scale in turquoise and a large white star, apparently crafted by the Amish in Lancaster County. I'd wanted a star of some sort for our patio for years so this is a big day on the Noe Farm.

The stars at night... are big and bright...
We also had the chance to welcome a very dear friend to the city who has just traveled 6000 miles across the country to move here. We're ecstatic about our new neighbor and the newest friend of the Noe Farm.
