In the Aughts I lived in North Beach, changed jobs, got divorced, lived in Cole Valley, went to Texas, went to Ireland, went to England, went to South Carolina, went to Oregon a few times, got married, and a bunch of other stuff. It's been a good time.
Best album: The Wrens, Meadowlands
If you really care, ask me and I'll bore you to death with why. If you don't know about it, just listen to it and get back to me.
Best cioppino: Caesar's, on Powell.
Best showers: The two I took consecutively immediately upon returning from my one and only Burning Man, in 2004.
Best wedding: Probably mine, earlier this year. OK, definitely mine, earlier this year.
Best bar (overall): Zeitgeist. Remember, I'm covering a whole decade here.
Best bar (early 2000's): Tony Nik's. Has anyone been there lately? What's it like now?
Worst thing that happened to me: Getting hosed for a shitload of money by my ex.
Best thing that happened to me: Getting a dog. KIDDING! Meeting and marrying The Wife. Everybody together now: AWWWWWWWWWW.
Thanks to everybody who made this decade possible. You guys are all awesome.
Happy New Year! Don't smoke too much. See you next year.
