Slept in. Breakfast at Lakeshore Cafe (510-832-4374, 3257 Lakeshore Avenue, Oakland) with Will. FYI Lakeshore Cafe is not on the lake's shore. Afterwards we checked out Oaktoberfest in the Dimond district of Oakland. I was surprised to see so many kids. It was essentially a family affair, a place where adults could pay a lot of money to get drunk on beer while their kids enjoyed the root bier garden kids area or rockclimbed. We didn't drink any beer because it was too expensive of a commitment for us both in terms of money and time. Missing from this Oktoberfest was a woman dressed like St. Pauli Girl, or at least I expected to see one but didn't. It was definitely shorts weather, and we were both too warmly dressed because it was overcast and cooler where Will lives, closer to Lake Merritt. Back to Will's. Nap. Dinner at Ghazal Indian Cuisine: garlic naan, fish korma, chicken tikka masala, chai iced tea. A recent Panda Express fortune: There will always be delightful mysteries in your life.
