Happy Friday everyone! Today has been a beautiful week in the bay area. It was 80 degrees in SF on Wednesday! Crazy! I must have jinxed the weather with my comment about no rain because it is suppose to rain tonight and Saturday. Sadness. :-( I always say I don't mind if it rains... while I'm at work in the office. I snapped this photo of the Mission Dolores Church while walking home from a workout this week. The small building to the left is the oldest European building in San Francisco. I just read that Dolores is Spanish for sorrow/sorrowful. It makes me laugh because normally the opposite is happening at Dolores Park.
Tuesday was Steven's birthday, so we headed out to the lower haight after I got off work for some libations. We went to Toronado & Noc Noc for happy hour. Both of these bars have lots of beers on tap. Toronado is only beer, but Noc Noc has wine (and sake) too. I think both places the happy hour lasted until 6:30pm. Afterwards, we headed to Uva Enoteca for some delicious Italian food. We both started out with wine and a cheese plate. The cheese plate was 3 cheese for $15 and they were pretty large servings. I've seen skimpy cheese plates! Then for our main course, I got the pasta pomodoro and Steven had the boar bolognese lasagna. Both were SO good. The sauces were delicious and the pasta was cooked perfectly. Also, our waitress was delightful! I will definitely be back to Uva Enoteca.
This isn't THE cupcake I had on Tuesday, but it is a cupcake. I always say I'm not a dessert person until I eat a cupcake again. haha
I saw this on Instagram the other day, and I had to send it to basically every single girlfriend I have. Hilarious.
I got this update last Friday. I saw it again saved in my photos today and laughed again. Quite the breaking news, CNN... HAH
Everyone have a great weekend! I'm hoping the rain will hold off for tonight because we are going to an outdoor event. Fingers crossed!
