We checked out the Renaissance Faire on Sunday in Golden Gate Park, and...it was a complete and total blast. We saw live jousting, a group of people re-enacting The Merry Wives of Windsor, the truly awesome dancing musicians pictured above, and pirates, outlaws and the odd ninja or samurai.

Afterwards, we headed (in full regalia) to Tommy's for margaritas, where we had the best conversation ever:
"Were you at the Renaissance Faire?" asked a guy at the bar.

"Yes," we said. "How did you know about it?"

"I read SFist," he said.

"Cool!" we said. "We write for SFist!"

Thanks, random reader at Tommy's, for making us feel like a personage! And...we highly recommend going to Tommy's in full costume. Margaritas taste better when you're wearing a doublet.
