Opera night

Last night Emily brought me to the SF Opera to see "The Girl of the Golden West" which was awesome!  I've never been to the opera before and it was fantastic.  Things I never knew about the opera:
  • There are subtitles
  • Some people wear jeans, others wear gowns
  • Those "in the know" reserve their Irish Coffee before the show for the 1st (yes, 1st - there are 2 to 3) intermission
 Post show was ... odd.  After Emily and I parted I started walking up Van Ness to catch the bus.  Just two blocks away from the Opera house, I was in the middle of a drug deal and a group of prostitutes - odd to say the least.  From so posh to so ...
