In San Francisco Then And Now

I came across an old photo of me that was taken in San Francisco in 1978 while I was there for a California Republican Party convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

For the fun of it, I have the photo from 1978 and one from last year below when I spoke in San Francisco at the Japan Society.

The convention, for me, was most notable for being a drunk-fest. Several candidates for state offices had hospitality suites. One would have wine, another would have margaritas and another would have a full bar. And so on. I hit them all.

This led to the worst hangover ever. A former co-worker was attending UC Berkeley and came over to join me while hitting the suites. He also got plowed. He managed to lose a very nice umbrella while in his drunken stupor. I never heard from him again following that weekend. I didn't feel better until I was flying home the next morning.

That's what happens when one mixes and has too many drinks. I never did that again! 

Here's a photo from 1978:

And, a photo from 2015 (a lot more sober) in San Francisco:
