Patterico's Pontifications


Happy Four-Day Weekend!

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:49 am

What?! It’s not a four-day weekend for you?! Well, it is for me.

You needn’t be too jealous. I’m taking a vacation day for it . . . my daughter has no school or day-care today, and someone has to take care of her. So that’s me. Our son is staying home as well.

We don’t have much fun planned for the weekend. Unpacking boxes, mostly. And doing laundry in the washer-dryer set that reader Jeff C. missed the beginning of “24” to help us set up (read: to set up himself. I don’t have a clue.).

But that’s okay; it’ll be a fun weekend. We kicked it off last night with a visit to the Whale and Ale in San Pedro — a great little British pub that may yet replace Ye Olde King’s Head in our hearts.

  1. Me too. My son is having a birthday party (his school has the day off) so I have a house full of adolescents.

  2. I don’t have a holiday today or Monday, and I have to work this weekend. And even if I could stay home, I don’t have a pretty view like you do. So … I’m definitely jealous.

  5. I lived above Gaffey St in San Pedro for 10 yrs and my wife & I loved the Whale & Ale. In those days it was the only place to get Guinnes on tap short of Santa Monica.
