On Saturday, August 26th Bruce and I actually got out for a date night! I’d gotten us tickets to the live taping of one of my favorite podcasts, The West Wing Weekly, at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. We planned to have dinner around the theatre somewhere, but when we arrived the line for the show was already down the block. (Tickets were general admission seating so we didn’t want to be too far in the back of the line.) So, we nixed our plans for a leisurely dinner and instead wolfed down some pizza and Chianti at the pizza place across the street. Luckily it was delicious and satisfying!
The show was very entertaining — the two hosts welcomed the show’s creator and writer, Aaron Sorkin, for a great conversation. Allison Janney, who played the press secretary, was a surprise guest. My pictures are horrible but here’s one anyway.
My favorite part was participating in their signature ending:
Luckily Bruce had fun too because I’m dragging him to another live podcast (Pod Save America) in December!
