Green Apple

Thursday was the 2nd to last day of filming “Yes We’re Open.” We’re getting crazy now!


It was our final time waiting for the sun to go down for exterior night shots. After we finished the bathroom scene above (which did NOT actually entail eating Whale Tails in the shower) we enjoyed our last takeout “lunch” from Shanghai Dumpling King


There were only mini plates left, so I piled my food onto a few


One for veggies


One for carbs


And one for meat


I learned my lesson from Wednesday night’s shoot and overstuffed myself with an additional helping, so I wouldn’t be starving after midnight


Once it got dark, we finished our final two outdoor scenes (it was FREEZING and I’m beyond grateful to be done with those), then headed over to Green Apple Books after they had closed to customers.


This was my favorite filming location, and is one of the best bookstore I’ve ever been to!


Everywhere you looked there were things that screamed: “READ ME”  (And wouldn’t you know – there’s a 1/2 off deal today!)





Speaking of Tartine, I found this mishmash of sweets I’d amassed this past week in my bag – everything from brownie bits to several types of cookies. Totally hit the spot when we wrapped at 1:30 am


Finally got to bed at 3 but woke up after 4 hours, as usual. We’ll be burning the midnight oil again but I’m hoping all the emotion and adrenaline will carry me through this last day!

    Aaargh for the lack of sleep. I think I wanna hang around your next film just so I can eat. Congrats on getting through the filming. No doubt you are ready to get home to your boys.

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs)

    Interesting books at that place, I guess….

    Hi Lynn! I had a question for you…
    I often find myself eating after midnite and skipping breakfast the next morning. Do you have any advice on how I can avoid this or do you think it’s okay to snack in the middle of the nite? Thanks!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen)

    It’s amazing what adrenaline will do, right?! I hope the night shoot goes well tonight too!

    Wow, filming that was fast! But I guess it’s because you guys are working so hard. Have fun on your last day!

    Lynn, Green Apple book store is awesome. That was one of my fave hangouts when I lived in SF. You never know what you will find hidden on those shelves.
