That evening boyziggy and I went to a nice Beltane ritual and private party, which I may write more about later (friendslocked if I do). We left around 2 a.m., missing the freeway collapse by less than two hours. zahraa and zyxwvut actually saw it as it happened, and mikz was there not long after.
Today Ziggy and I went with thomwatson and jefftabaco to see the Capitol Steps at the JCCSF. They were quite funny, performing political satire set to popular tunes. I'd heard them described as sort of D.C.'s version of the Mime Troupe but they're quite different, as the Troupe writes all of its own music and has a staged play with a plot. Both are well worth seeing.
