Metreon, Yerba Buena Gardens, Cartoon Art Museum -- February 18, 2012

It was cold and windy today.

The cat jumped on the bed to wake us.  We went downstairs and found that Turner Classic Movies was showing M. Hulot's Holiday.  After breakfast, we drove downtown to Fifth and Mission.  We went to the Metreon, which recently reopened after extensive remodeling, which is still going on.  We had lunch at the San Francisco Soup Company.  We went upstairs and took some pictures, like the one above, showing the Museum of Modern Art and Timothy Pflueger's Pacific Telephone Building. We walked around Yerba Buena Gardens and took more photos.

I didn't notice any problems caused by this weekend's Bay Bridge closure. 

We went to the Cartoon Art Museum. They had an exhibit of art related to the Wizard of Oz, from a comic strip that L Frank Baum wrote and a 1930s comic strip, to more recent comic books and graphic novels. My daughter has been enjoying the Marvel graphic novels. They also had an exhibit of contemporary comic strips, including Pearls Before Swine and Lio

We went to 5 o'clock mass at Good Shepherd, then had dinner at Guerrero's Taqueria.
