Count Olaf wins!

Last night was a good bit of silliness. I hung out with untitled42 for the evening. We went for pasta dinner at Capri, that non-fabulous but yummy Italian restaurant in the Castro. After dinner, we repaired to chez josh for a few hours of playing 42's new game buy, the Lemony Snicket board game: The Perilous Parlor


The game is rather odd. Olaf tries to kill the children's guardian. The children try to save the guardian. It all takes place in a house with rooms with names like "the dangerous den" and "the lethal living room". There are 4 characters to play, Olaf and the orphans, but when it's just two players one play plays all of the children and the other plays Olaf. The thing I liked was how much more likely it is for Olaf to win. The game designers didn't care about fairness as much as recreating the mood of inevitable doom punctuated by bizarre twists and clever diversions. But I think it would be more fun with 3 or 4 players.

That I've *never even heard of* ?!?!?! AAAAAAH.

I must find where it is and go.

Also, make sure you patronize Fuzio's a few last times before it finally closes down to make room for a Chevy's.


I'll be wearing black for a month.

WFT? Chevy's? Chevy's??? Like we need more fresh-mex and panicky straight boys in the Castro. Sigh.

Capri is on Market right next to Tower Video. Good pasta dishes, nice relaxed atmosphere.

Yes, Capri is a great place. I remember back when it was just a pizza place and had expanded. I went there for many pizza and salads when Id come to town and stay at that place right down the street from them. Ahem.

From what I've been told, ownership is the only change. They're keeping the brand. Fuzio will still be called Fuzio and continue to have the same menu. :)

I love Capri, especially at 4:30 PM when the bread comes right out of the oven. Best time to go there if you can deal with eating early.

Their bread is dangerous enough w/o it being fresh from the oven.
