Our time in SF is kind of a blur to me now. We had a lot of fun walking around and eating. We took a trolley ride.
Got some irish coffees at a place that Kraig’s mom kept telling us about The Buena Vista Cafe. I don’t think I would go here to eat, but it was fun getting a world famous irish coffee. 🙂
Walked around Golden Gate Park. Golden Gate Park is HUGE compared to the parks we have in Boston. I wore flats and this was a mistake. I should have worn sneakers or something more substantial.
We did some bar hopping with friends and ate dinner at Greenburger’s. I got a cheeseburger and a salted coffee caramel milkshake that was out of this world.
We picnicked on wine, cheese, and crackers near the Palace of Fine Arts. I have this thing where I obsess with drinking wine in parks and finally checked this off my list of things to do. There were plenty of people lounging on the grass around here eating food and soaking up the sun. We also saw a bridal party taking pictures here.
We ate at a variety of other places, but I was too hungry to take pictures.
Bi-Rite Creamery is suppose to be a really good ice cream place in SF, but I didn’t think it lived up to the hype, crowds, or long line to get an ice cream. MASSACHUSETTS (okay New England) knows how to do ice cream. California does not. I guess shouldn’t brag about my ice cream tasting skills though.
We got pizza and beers for dinner at Little Star Pizza. They have thin crust and deep dish pizzas here. We ordered the deep dish pizza and both thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve never been to Chicago before to have true deep dish pizza so I don’t have anything to compare it to.
We had brunch with Kraig’s cousin Maggie at Brenda’s French Soul Food which lived up to all the hype. I had been looking forward to getting brunch here for MONTHS. We shared a Beignet Flight for an appetizer which is sample of each Beignet (donut) flavor. For the life of me, I can’t remember what I had as my main meal, but just remember thinking it was delicious and wishing I could order everything on the menu. This is what happens when you blog months after your trip, you forget everything you ate! 🙂 Oh, but I could never ever forget those Beignets!
We also grabbed lunch at Claudine one day because we were starving, in the area, and that’s what yelp recommended. It was a cute little spot, but only if you’re nearby. The bartenders actually measure out the amount of wine they give you. Come on! Give me a Murphy glass of wine! A Murphy glass of wine is a large glass of wine. Not quite as large as the one on Cougartown, but you get the idea. No, I don’t really watch Cougartown, but think this is funny.
We got lunch one day at Tacolicous and ordered tacos and margs for lunch. The place was packed with people watching some game on TV that I wasn’t paying attention to. It was a young, fun atmosphere. It was also interesting to be sitting next to a couple on one of their first dates.
Overall, I thought San Fransisco was very cool. Here are our SF pics.
Our trip to Cali was a good one. I think out of all the places I’ve seen in California, BIG SUR is by far my FAVORITE. It was just so beautiful and relaxing.
