WO: Weekly Obsessions
I’m in San Fran for work this week, and man, what I went through to get here. There’s a separate time and post for that, but in the meantime, here are some loverly ramblings for your enjoyment.
Mexico Au Parc: This little Mexican place near our office offers “agua fresca” every day; my favorite so far is the strawbs (with an enormous chicken quesadilla). For less than $10, you can fill up on traditional Mexican favorites — just make sure you beat the lunch rush, and get there before 12:05!
AT&T Park: Even though they lost, I took in a Giants game Monday night and loved every minute of it. There’s a huge slide for fans to play on, and the stadium overlooks the bay. How perfect is that?
This Weather: My hair now knows the feeling of zero-humidity weather and it’s fantastical. My skin freaked out a little bit from the lack of moisture in the air, but we’re on speaking terms now and all is well. Bonus: I can walk from the car to the office without dying of heat stroke!
Russian Hill: My favorite borough so far, there are tons of little unique shops and eateries along this stretch of land. Among some other noteworthy stops, the flank-steak sandwich from Rex Cafe and the ice cream from Swensen’s are heavenly. I had the Thin Mint ice cream with chocolate sprinkles … delicious.
So, there you have it. Although it’s a bit foreign to wear jeans and long sleeves in August, San Francisco has stolen my heart and I don’t foresee any plans to return it anytime soon.
So happy you are finding time for some fun in between the work. Love the pictures and one day I too will visit this beautiful city.
Yes, you will have to. You’d love the big-city culture mixed with the neighborhood vibe. Everyone here has been so welcoming. Sometime soon, Magz!
looks like yer having fun, mander! keep up the good work lol
Thanks, Rach! I’m trying to spend every free minute visiting another borough or area. There’s live music in the park right outside my hotel tonight, and this guy is jammin! Miss you kids in Tampa though!
