Days 7, 8 • March 8, 9, 2012 • Playing in San Francisco
One day wasn’t enough so we stayed an extra. We were within walking distance of China Town, cable cars, and MOMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. We rode the bus to to the Exploratorium but by the time we got there we only had about an hour left until they closed. Still a lot of fun, an amazing place– Boise Discovery Center on steroids. We took advantage of the endless variety of Walgreens to replenish our supplies. We had Dim Sum and Subway.
We mixed it up with our fellow geeks at the game developers’ conference. Some of them were staying in our hostel. Apparently God hates game designers.
This may be why.
We watched The Lorax. Thumbs up from me and Zoe. They should have resisted the urge to tie everything up into a neat bow but it was well done overall. My only real criteria for a good animated movie is that I can stay awake; this was one of the few that met that test. This outcome may have had something to do with with the 24 oz NOS energy drink I acquired from one of the NOS girls pushing stimulants onto the bleary-eyed game developers. We also got some sporty neck lanyards from them, thanks NOS girls!
Our favorite activity in SFO was MOMA where we spent a lot of time. In one exhibit we became part of an interactive piece of art. This may have been on the floor that doesn’t allow photography, I got them mixed up, so don’t tell anyone.
