Weekend in the Bay

First off, a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered my Jam Jar and Seasons 52 giveaway! I was honestly trying to find a way to send every person who entered the giveaway a bottle of wine before I realized how absolutely ludicrous that tab would be. Alas,  I hope my sentiments are enough and I really appreciate those who entered!

And just for good measure, Katie B. won the giveaway. :) Congrats Katie!

A few weekends ago was a 3 day weekend for Presidents Day and we had plans to visit one of my bridesmaids Stephanie in the bay area, for her birthday. We drank a little, played a tempestuous game of guys vs. girls trivia, and then spent the next day wandering the city by the bay!

There are moments when I think I could love San Francisco... especially when the sun is out and it's almost 70 degrees. And even more so when you have an El Farlitos burrito, Bi-rite ice cream and amazing raw oysters all in one day. But at the end of the day when we're paying almost $30 for our parking tab, the temp dips to low 40s with wind and there are no places to use the bathroom once you've left a restaurant, I realize I am not a city by the bay kind of gal. But it's a wonderful place to visit!

SF-weekendI have been on such a seafood kick lately! Rob and I have started eating clean for the past two weeks and this was our first weekend out after a week of all home-cooked meals and non stop salads and chicken breasts. Needless to say, we splurged. But those oysters... I'm dreaming of our next trip to SF just for the oysters and calamari.

So unofficially, Let's Get Physical is on the upswing again. After completely disrupting our normal exercise and eating habits when we moved to midtown 6 months ago, Rob and I are working on getting it all back. I'll post about this soon!

What is your favorite fresh seafood item? Where do you go for your seafood kick?

    I am obsessed with this article. No joke. I love that you were in the Mission eating at El Farolitos, Bi-rite and visiting Dolores Park... and I LOVE that you are on a seafood kick. hahaha It makes me soooo happy! Oysters and fried calamari are the best!

    I can't believe I missed you that weekend but we thought of you guys a ton while we were in Seattle. Excited to "hangout" with you this evening! xo

  2. What a great trip! I am dying over those oysters... I tried oysters for the first time a couple of years ago and have been hooked ever since. Have a wonderful day, Evani!
