MLK 2012 – San Francisco

Last weekend my sister and I drove up to the Bay Area. We unloaded her stuff at her apartment in Berkeley for her last semester. Gosh my mini me is growing up so fast and is making me feel very old. The weather was beautiful in San Francisco and my three day weekend would have been perfect had I not got a speeding ticket on the 280 and then a parking ticket too on the same day. At least I did get to eat some good food and spend some quality time with a few friends and family.

On the way to SF, my sister and I stopped at Harris Ranch for dinner for the first time.

Saturday, I had brunch with a few friends at Town’s End (pics from my iPhone) by Pier 38.

After brunch, I introduced Judy to Daiso and Bi-Rite (pic from my iPhone).

Wendy had suggested we have dinner at The Tipsy Pig in the Marina area. Umm…the appetizers were good.

After I got my speeding ticket on Sunday, I had lunch with my sister and cousins at the On The Bridge restaurant in Japantown. The service was so slow.

As for dinner, I slowly drove myself back to Millbrae for some steak at Jerry and Grace’s house. Argh! I’m dreading the day that damn speeding ticket arrives in the mail. I hate traffic school, even if it’s online.


Granville Cafe

I’m sick and my head feels like it’s going to burst, but I had planned to go shopping today and I did. Now I’m sitting in my room, with my box of kleenex wishing I had just slept in instead. My sister, the trooper that she is, accompanied me to the Americana in Glendale so I decided to treat her to an early dinner at Granville Cafe. I was also a little hungry myself. We ordered the Uptown Mac n’ Cheese and the Kalamata Artichoke Pizza to share.
