I’ve been feeling a little lonely for the city lately. I miss being surrounded by limitless cool stuff — the weird little film festivals, the obscure cuisines, the biggest rubber band ball.
But yesterday Gene’s company rented out the Lucky Ju Ju pinball museum and catered it with a gourmet taco truck and, being a shiftless jobless local gal, I crashed the party and got to play a ton of free pinball. And I remembered that Alameda can be pretty cool, too.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go see how many rubber bands we have lying around. I want to do my part to help make this community great.
