100 Happy Days: Super Moon

August 10th, 2014

Super Moon rising over San Francisco. I think I drove Mark a little crazy as I tried to snap the perfect lunar shot from my iPhone.

We had dinner at Gamine with Bethany. It was a pleasure to introduce her to one of our favorite French bistros in San Francisco.

We started with Beef tartare.

I had Spaghetti Carbonara.

We closed out the restaurant. It was a pleasure to linger over dessert and port.

The kitchen surprised us with crème brûlée.

100 Happy Days: Conversation

August 2nd, 2014

Conversation over beer and cocktails at the Village Tavern in San Francisco’s Noe Valley.

Also – I laughed when I saw this sign by the Noe Valley Courts.

I’ve never been called Daisy’s “Guardian.”
If there was a town hall meeting on this sign, I would have loved to watch it.

Decadent dessert after a lovely meal at Firefly.

Succulent bone marrow delight in San Francisco.

This is a tasty small plate at Beast and the Hare. It’s served with grilled toast. It’s melt-in-your-mouth good.

100 Happy Days: Bottomless Mimosas

June 29th, 2014

Mimosas are always a good idea.
Bottomless mimosas are better when you don’t have to work.

I had a rare Sunday off.
Mimosas at Harry's
We spent the day doing brunch and watching World Cup games in San Francisco.

A tasty breakfast burrito at Harry’s in Pacific Heights.

During my restroom break, Netherlands scored a goal against Mexico. Mark texted me about it as I washed my hands.

Adorable Barbie art inside the ladies room.

100 Happy Days: Late-Night Eating

June 1st, 2014

My hubby found Gracias Madre.

It serves organic/vegan Mexican food. It’s open late on a Sunday night. It works for my TGIF.

I loved the coconut ceviche. It reminded me of our honeymoon in Ixtapa and sipping coco locos in coconut shells on the beach.

Bartenders would take the coconut meat out the shell. They added salt, lime and hot sauce. That became my favorite post-cocktail treat. NOM.
