A Visit from my friend, Andrea

It's always great when Andrea comes to town, because she's fun, fabulous, and always makes me laugh. So why would this last visit be any different?

Andrea made plans to come to San Diego and hang out with another friend for the weekend. But, lucky for me, those plans fell through. She already had a room at the Hotel Solamar downtown, so we decided to spend the evening there and then check out The Gaslamp.

First, we enjoyed a delicious margarita in her room, overlooking the Stingaree rooftop patio bar. Then we wandered down to the hotel "Living Room," where we enjoyed an hour of free beer and wine. We also met Andre, another guest at the hotel, who hung out with us most of the evening.

Our next stop was the j-Bar, which is the hotel's poolside bar and hotspot. By the time the sun went down, it looked like this:



Cool, huh? By this point, our group had expanded to eight people. We decided to grab dinner at Fred's Mexican Cafe'. Good food and better margaritas, so it was all good.



We lost a few from our group after dinner. We wandered around a bit, then finally made it to Tivoli's for more drinks and a little pool playing. The night ended with a stop at Bondi, the Australian bar. By the time I made it back to the room, I was absolutly beat. But it was a great visit.

Come back soon, Andrea. I miss you when you stay away too long!
