Last night I joined Matt and Mike at the McMenamins on Savier (recently remodeled) to belatedly celebrate Mike's 48th birthday. Belatedly because on the blessed day itself (December 16) he was traveling in Turkey with Tina (likewise a Sufi) in the company of his Mevlevi Order.
We had a meal, then shot three games of pool on one of the two smaller tables, then crossed 23rd to Beesaw's for dessert. I brought some of my inside-out german chocolate cake home in a box.
Michael & Tina also toured in Australia recently, in connection with Mike's career as a didj player.
