quick update: i briefly got to see saturn & venus in a cloudless strip between the horizon and the cloudbank, though it didn't last long. with just binoculars, you couldn't make out the two separate planets because of the atmospheric turmoil, but it was still unmistakably larger thanj just venus alone.
also, this marks the start of toddapalooza, so we took him to pambiche for brunch today. very nice! good atmosphere, good waitress & good food. and free birthday dessert for todd that even four of us couldn't finish -- not because it wasn't delicious, though! we tried to go there once for dinner and it was pretty busy, so it looks like lunch/brunch is a better option.
