Happy Birthday San Francisco! ‘Twas 167 years ago today you got your name! (Before that, you were, of course, Yerba Buena!)
Should you wish to, one might celebrate with a sip of wine, and a listen of Ella Fitzgerald’s live 1964 performance of “I Love Being Here With You” featuring the legendary Roy “Little Jazz” Eldridge on trumpet; after all, it’s Roy’s birthday today too! (He would have been 103!)
San Francisco, we love being here with you!
I love good wine and fine cuisine
And candle light; I like the scene
But, baby, if you know what I mean
I love being here with you
