What a whirlwind of a trip! San Francisco you expensive mecca of amazingly fashionable people and amazing cardio workouts – You have my heart now.
I recently had a work trip to San Francisco. It was a Monday-Wednesday seminar that didn’t leave anytime for sightseeing, so I flew in on Sunday at 9am. The day I arrived was the same day as Bay Breakers, the annual Zappos race that shuts down the streets…right where I was staying. So after the ninety minute stand still I put my bags down (my view was from the 27th floor) and headed out to see the city.
First off… it was freezing, so my amazing cute and chic outfits were replaced with my Under Armour hoody. Praise Jesus it gave me enough warmth to only use uber a couple of times.
So here is how the day went down:
10:00 – Hailed the mighty Uber to take me to the Ferry Building. The building had amazing smells because it was full of amazing food. I ate four macaroons and moved on.
10:30 – Grabbed a hot chocolate from Starbucks and started walking through the Financial District to Little Italy. Yelp had deemed a small restaurant the “must eat” for Italian cuisine.
11:40 – After a couple of diversions into some super chic and cute stores, I made my way to The Italian Homemade Company. <– This place was no joke, the best tortilleni I have ever had.
12:30 – Continued my walking up and down hills to Chinatown. The stores were full of fresh fruits, pastries, and veggies. The little souvenir stores were to die for. I picked up a couple of chopstick sets and a replica of a piece that was on Agents of Shield for Wes.
2:00 – I decided to hit Lombard Street with my Uber driver. This place was packed!
3:00 – Went to the Fine Arts building. It was beautiful and I wanted to stay forever.
5:00 – Headed up to Coit Tower. That was the most amazing view but the walk was killer.
6:30 – Grabbed some wine from floor 38 in the hotel that I was in. It had panoramic views of the city.
8:00 – Went to a local hotspot for dinner, I for the life of me can not remember the name.
10:00 – I went to bed. Because I’m old.
I’m heading to San Fran again in September. Anything you’d recommend I check out?
