Spring time has finally sprung in the bay area. The days are getting warmer & longer and finally no more constant rain. This weekend was a short one because of classes on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, I did get a wine delivery from Club W. I decided to cancel the service though because they don't let you skip a few months at a time. This wine delivery was definitely a surprise and I don't like surprise monetary deductions. I also had to lug it home from work which was not fun! It is fun to try new labels and varietals though, so maybe one day I'll subscribe again.
Saturday after class, I rushed home to watch the UNC basketball game. We won! And unfortunately we didn't win last night #sadtarheel. That night my friend, Marissa, and I went out in the Marina. I RARELY go out in the marina, but we decided to give it a try. Our first stop was Eastside West Bar. It was WAY too crowded, but at least there was no cover. We only hung out for a bit before we decided we needed more space and less people running into us. We headed over to HiFi which a smaller bar with a dance floor. We had so much fun there! It was very laid back, the bartenders were super friendly, and way less crowded. We also had an intense coaster throwing contest with the bartenders, so overall great fun! :-)
Sunday afternoon, I crawled out of bed (man, I'm old... can't handle being over-served!) and met Adrienne out at Off the Grid in the Presidio. It was a wonderful sunny day, but was quite chilly when the wind blew. I'm also not sure if it was because of opening day, but OMG it was packed! We found the shortest line possible and waited there for at least 30 minutes before ordering. We both got food from SugerFoot BBQ. It was good food but not what I was craving. We enjoyed the sun for awhile and split a bottle of wine. Hopefully if we go again the crowds won't be as insane!
The rest of Sunday was spent at home while catching up on Netflix. Yesterday, I actaully did something fun for it being a Monday. I met Steven and a few other friends at HiTops which is a sportsbar in the Castro to watch the Carolina game. Also, the Carolina loss. :-( What a let down! Oh well, still proud to be a Tarheel! One thing that made the night better were the wings. HiTops has amazing wing sauce! I loved it.
It's Steven's birthday tonight, so I'll be doing something fun again! Have an amazing week y'all!
