On Tampa, Food and the Apple Store

So, got up pretty early this morning. 7am, actually. That’s pretty early for a Saturday, isn’t it? Though admittedly it could be earlier. But not much.
I was up early to accompany Simon to his Subaru dealership in Tampa. It’s a 70 mile drive there, and takes about an hour and a half on the highway (taking the #75->275). We missed the turnoff but luckily found it in time for his appointment. An hour and a half later and we were on our way.
Went to the Apple Store, since it was so close by, and the staff recognized me from last week! Of course I was wearing my WWDC2002 developer shirt again (can you say “Developers” four times?), so I’m sure that helped. Thanks go out to applestudentdevelopers.org, who helped make the shirt a reality.
To thank Simon for his help I took him out for lunch at the Bamboo Club, a nice restaurant at International Plaza that specializes in “Asian Pacific” food. What did we get? A mouthwatering order of pot-stickers to start, and we went from there — grilled asparagus, (north? it was sweeet) korean style beef, a spicy chicken dish and a big bowl of rice. All very yummy. And I’ve got leftovers to boot! I can hear my tummy growling now…
