San Francisco/Napa Valley – 2

The second night in San Francisco we attended the production of Peter Pan in a giant tent.  The production was ingenious with video projection over the inner walls of the circular tent, reminiscent of the surround effect at Expo 67’s Bell pavilion in Montreal.  As Peter flew, the projected scenery transported him, and you, across the English skyscape.  Very clever and entertaining…but about 30 minutes too long.

Then we went to Bix.  The owner’s last name is shared with the jazz great Bix Beiderbecke and he was nicknamed Bix as well, the story goes.  Great jazz piano played live during dinner.  I started with the wild prawn cocktail…and they were huge… and had Arctic Char as my main.  It was okay.  Dessert was brownies and ice cream…a highlight.  This night we called for a cab instead of trying to hail one…San Francisco is not like New York or Montreal in terms of ease of finding a taxi.
