It was our seven year anniversary and we wanted to make it memorable (plus there was football game that the mister wanted to go to as well...funny how that worked out?!) I fall more in love with this place each time I walk down it's streets...all things artsy fartsy with a spritz of organic city life. Oh, and don't get me started about the food; lets just say we might have based the majority of our stay around where we were going to eat?! :-)
My favorite things this time around were:
-going to the BYU game and seeing a bunch of old friends from our college days
-the farmers market down by the warf is AMAZING (most of the pics Im sharing in this post are from there)
-loved watching people preform their talents on the side of the street, especially the Drum King.
-Lombard Street on Russian Hill
-the gorgeous and intricate gingerbread castle at the Westin St. Francis hotel
-spending the afternoon with my sisters, niece and nephews
okay now lets talk food, since we were only there for 2 1/2 days we didn't get to hit all the places we wanted but our favorites were:
***breakfast: Dotties and Sears
***Dinner: Hillstone and actually the cafe in Neiman Marcus was really good
***treats: Swensens Icecream and the farmers market has phenomenal tasty things galore
Places we heard were really good but never got around to trying them:
***breakfast: Zazies and Plow
***lunch/dinner: Tonga Room, Boulevard, State Bird Provisions, McCormick & Kuleto, Frascatis (the pork chops are supposedly amazin'!)
***treats: Icecream bar for great sodas (thanks Rachel for that one!) and Twirl & Dip for delicious homemade waffle cones and soft serve
^^^ our flight was delayed, so I went and got a bag of candy that cost waaaay more than it should've...
Josh wasn't too amused haha. Airports are such a rip off.
^^^ 1 1/2 hour wait for Dotties but totally worth it
^^^ this is all made out of sugar, graham crackers and frosting...the detail was jaw dropping
^^^ I kind of want a kitchen with green cupboards after seeing this little boutique
^^^ wreaths made out of tiffany&co. boxes... love it!
I couldn't get enough of this guy, I could've stayed and watched him for hours!!!
