Many thanks to Markos for inviting the SFKossacks to party at HQ with the Editorial Staff who had been there all week for a working retreat. Markos had his favorite Salvadoran restaurant Platanos in Berkeley provide the main course of papusas, tamales, fried yucca and plantain. It was delicious and my first taste of Salvadoran cuisine.

The SFKossacks rallied once again and got our potluck on. We brought appetizers, salads, side dishes, desserts and loads of beer, wine and other beverages. There was plenty of food and celebratory drink.

I was a little off my game with photo taking due to extreme fatigue. But others were there. I hope they'll post their photos in the comments today.

The next night a few of us met in the city to celebrate paradise50's birthday weekend. We met at Lefty O'Douls for drinks and dinner.
