I met Michael Mina at Candlestick Park. I was there to see the SF Niners beat NY Jets. While I was waiting for my friends to pass the security check, I kept staring at this guy who looked like Michael Mine. Oh, wait...he IS Michael Mina! I shook his hand and told him how I'm a fan of him and his restaurants. He is a humble, genuine, and awesome guy.
Unfortunately I did not take a picture with him. I was too giddy and caught up in the moment to think of it. Next time, perhaps.
