Last weekend -- when the weather was much nicer than today -- we stumbled upon the opening day performance of the Golden Gate Band at the Golden Gate Park Music Concourse. We only caught the last big number, a medley of music from South Pacific, but did learn that they'd be playing at the Polish Festival the following weekend.
The only reason we stumbled onto the Concourse was because we were going to the Cal Academy and the only reason we stumbled at that exact time was because I decided not to stop and get a coffee because the line was too long. If it wasn't for those turn of events, I wouldn't have been motivated to make Penelope a traditional Polish costume from scratch (including hand-embroidered vest!) and attend this weekend's festival (celebrating Polish Constitution Day).
