A San Fransisco Treat

This weekend Drew and I went to San Fransisco to spend time with my sister who recently moved there. We invited my brother Daniel (who lives in Vegas) to come along as well and he invited his friend Jake. The more the merrier! This trip originated because Drew wanted to cross a few things off his San Fransisco bucket list and we also wanted to spend the weekend with my sister in her new city. The first thing on Drew’s bucket list was Tartine, a french bakery. We stood in line for about 30 mins for warm sticky buns, fresh almond croissants and the most remarkable open faced ham and cheese sandwich EVER! It melted in your mouth. This was the perfect way to start our day. From there, we headed to the Ferry Building Marketplace to shop and pick up food for a picnic lunch (fresh bread, cheese, meats and things). We also met up with Daniel’s friend Jake for drinks at the Slanted Door. After drinks, we rode the trolly up and down the streets of San Fransisco which was very entertaining and the views were not bad. I haven’t rode the San Fransisco trolly since I was in high school vacationing with my family. I forget sometimes that we live so close to a plethora of amusing things. We got off at the last stop and walked to Lafayette Park for a picnic. It was a small park and we were the only people there which was cool in such a big city. There we had a picnic, a very peaceful break in our busy day. Not to mention – mouthwatering! We headed back to our hotel room to hang out after lunch, rest, have a drink and then we walked to dinner. We ate sushi at PABU. It was tasty! Many toasts and libations followed dinner at Local Edition and John Collins. On Sunday we did more exploring, eating and drinking. We ended our trip at the yacht club by the Golden Gate Park. I didn’t get very many pictures this weekend but I wanted to share the few that I did get (I even borrowed a few from my sister).
