Numismania

Who would pay $5 for a quarter? Evidently, quite a few people, since the Wells Fargo History Museum sold out of California State Quarters right before I got there. Garrett Burke, who created the winning design, was there in-person signing quarter holders. I don't know if they underestimated demand, or if the 10-per-person limit was just too generous.

This being lunch time, I walked to [San Francisco's] Chinatown to look for dim sum ... many of the best places are closed on Wednesdays ... still, I managed to find a place where I could stuff myself for less than four bucks.
