Bluepoint and Petco Park 4/7/2007

Last night was a fun time out with J and her father. We started early, leaving Miss Zoe behind much to my lament (but it was worth it). We had reservations downtown at Bluepoint, and that was one meal that definitely did not disappoint. I got the ahi duo -- seared ahi and asparagus in a port-butter sauce along with an ahi sushi roll and a rice patty. It was outstanding, and made all the better by the Stone Pale Ale (Stone is a local San Diego brewery, highly recommended) I washed it down with.

Next, it was off to Petco for the Padres v. the Rockies. It was a tightly contested defensive ball game, but Adrian Gonazalez was brilliant down the stretch - he contributed a sac fly to tie the game, and then smacked a double to win it in the bottom of the 9th. We had great seats along the 3rd base line that Jen had bought for her dad's birthday present. The only negative was a loudmouth sitting behind us, but he eventually left his seats while the game was still tied.

We came back to find Miss Zoe had been an angel; thankfully there were no unpleasant surprises to greet us when we returned to OB. All in all, it was a great night out :)
