Elphaba and Galinda
We decided to spend a few days in San Francisco , mostly to avoid  showing up at Yosemite on the weekend.  And to give Emily some "city" time.   Our first order of business was to get in line for the lottery to win tickets to see WICKED  Emily and Joe had seen this musical production in New York, and I was so excited to see it too.  The Orpheum Theater offers about a dozen pairs of tickets via a "lottery" before each performance.  We put our names in and...we didn't get called!  Bummer!  We did meet a very nice couple from Tacoma - the husband was a teacher at a Christian school and the wife was a former Young Life leader.  Needless to say we had a lot in common and plenty to talk about as we waited.

We went back the next day and we DID win tickets for the matinee show, which worked out much better for us because we were staying at an RV Park in the ghetto.  Just kidding...but not really.  Actually Max's name was chosen and he gave the tickets to Emily and me.  We had a great time while Joe and Max toured around SF and the Cable Car museum.  Of course we gorged on sourdough bread and clam chowder.
