Hey there - joining in! Looks like you have a fun trip planned. I'll give you a family favorite dining locale in SF. Scoma's - seafood place on Fisherman's Wharf. Now I haven't been there in about 8 years, but the food is super good! (Expensive, but what in SF isn't.)

And, it seems like this has already been determined, but a Po' Boy is sandwich. Specifically it comes from the state of Lousiana, and in my experience a REAL Po' Boy usually comes on a soft crust grinder/sub/hoagie roll, but has some of the inner bread dug out to fit the meat/cheese/fillings. Usually served warm as well. I imagine it being one of those things that's never done "right" outside of the state of Lousiana. (Much like a Philly Cheesesteak gets botched everywhere outside of Philadelphia PA.)

Hey Pete! Thanks for stopping by this PTR.

I'll put Scoma on the list for dining at Fisherman's Wharf. DS and I normally make a trip out there....we like the colour and motion of the Wharf and the wildlife that we can spot! So, I'll have to check out where it is and go try the food.

Hi Princess, just stopping by to wish you a great trip. Hope your meal at Club 33 is as wonderful as can be. Look forward to reading your TR ... we are travelling up the coast to SF after DL. We will be staying just out of the city with friends, but plan to spend a couple of days in town visiting Fisherman's Wharf, the Exploratorium, cable car, shopping etc. Have fun!

Friends In a Box Meets

Life at home has been busy and I have yet to find time to neither pull down the suitcases nor think about what clothes we’ll need to take with us. Thankfully, when I do get round to this, I can pretty much pack the clothes into the suitcases as we will be taking winter clothes to California, whilst enjoying living in our summer wardrobe at home. I’m really not crowing about the summer weather but if you think I am, just remember – weather payback is only ever 6 months away.

Despite the helter-skelter of life at home, I’ve managed to firm up arrangements of my mini Dis-meets with two of my “friends in a box”.

The arrangements with franandaj (Alison) have been firm from the time that this trip was not even on the horizon. It was always going to be “when” I next go to the US, she and I were always going to catch up. The bonus is that the catch up is going to be at Club 33. I’ve been checking out the lunch menu and food porn on line for Club 33 and I really am so looking forward to being there for the catch up.

The other arrangement that I firmed up was with an old fogie – Usnuzuloose. She is going to be in Monterey on the Saturday that we drive up and we are planning on meeting up. I'm hoping that we can find a really picturesque coffee spot somewhere with a view of the ocean and spend some time just reminiscing about .... being old! But I've put my foot down....there will NOT be any corn involved in this meet!

I had also planned on meeting a fellow Aussie – Shushh – as well. Shushh is currently enjoying the Disney high seas and we just didn’t want to make any firm commitments, as she will be disembarking and who knows how long that would take! So, potentially, I may have a 3rd DisMeet on this trip!

We all invest a bit of time on this forum and the connections you make can seem as real (or even more real) than the friends you have at home. Every so often, it is nice to unpack the box and meet people in 3 Dimensions. It really can be a bit like unwrapping a surprise present!

I’m down to 10 days before heading off on the California Road Trip. And it seems kinda appropriate that this post will also be my 10,000th one.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll stop by again before I go...still have 10 days.

Your trip sounds fun too...are you planning on doing a PTR?

No plans for a PTR at this stage ... just having fun planning and trying to contribute to the odd forum or two! Good luck with the packing ... you almost need some winter clothes today though! It is such "Melbourne" weather at the moment!!

This is true. But remember California is as hard to read as Melbourne and Sydney. I'd still keep a short sleeve bottom layer and then add.
I'm looking out the window to showers and storms...hang on...that's what the weather report said an hour ago...I see clear skies and sun!

Hope all the trip planning and the trip itself goes well!!

Have fun!

Always curious what is online for food porn, last time we had lunch there was my birthday in May and it was awesome! I've been going there for about 15 years and not a lot has changed, just the fact that now you order you entree instead of get it from the buffet, but they have a bar in the restaurant instead of ordering drinks from somewhere unknown....the only thing is that at lunch they used to have a pasta bar which is no longer. other than that is is almost as it always was.....

Well, I'm hoping to seriously contribute to the on-line food porn for Club33 on the DisBoard! I think the AllEars site has a great set of photos of the Club, including pre-updates.

Just to give you a heads up in your packing, if you haven't been checking the temperatures, it has been unseasonally cold this year (and last) in California. We never really had a summer and this winter we went the longest number of days without reaching 70 degrees. Now I know all you folks on the East Coast are laughing, but normally us folks in So Cal don't need jackets, and wear flip flops year round, so you may want to pack some extra layers just in case....

Looking forward only 10 days until our lunch meet!

Thanks. Will definitely be packing extra layers. Although...it's pretty cool in Melbourne right now; and it's supposed to be summer!
