Book Clubbin'

The best part of book club is the food and friends. A bunch of us decided to read the book Why Men Love Bitches for this particular Friday night book club. I had read it a long time ago, but it was fun to see what everyone else had to say about it. We had a ton of yummy snacks (mostly baked from recipes on Pinterest) and some great vino. I'll admit that this was my first Book Club and I had a blast!

Super Bowl...

..would have been so much better had the Niners made it!  BUT we still had a ton of fun eating jello shots out of orange rinds and drinking IPA. Not a bad Sunday Funday if you ask me :)

Brunch & Golden Glass Wine Tasting

The other day my girlfriends and I got together for brunch at one of my friends houses. It turned out to be an amazing day in the city so of course we decided to take our mimosas to the roof top and enjoy the view of SF. After our brunch we decided to head over to Fort Mason for the Golden Glass wine tasting. Wineries from all over Italy and California joined up to give us tastings all afternoon. Not only that, but there were food vendors there as well. I wouldn't say it was as neat as the Harvest Festival tasting, but it was still fun!

Crown & Crumpet

Nothing is better than an afternoon of tea and treats! My girlfriends and I met up on Sunday afternoon at Crown & Crumpet in Ghiraradelli Square and it was adorable! I've been wanting to go for a really long time and I felt like I was in London all over again... Definitely expensive, but an experience I won't forget!

Pier 23

After our hike up to Coit Tower we stopped at a little dive bar called Pier 23 right on the Embarcadero. Its somewhat similar to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 minus all of the tourists. So, if you want to feel like a local and do some day drinking and eating, this is the place.

Mas Sake

A few weekends ago for my roomies birthday we all decided to get a little wild and go to Mas Sake for dinner. According to what we had heard from friends, this place gets pretty interesting and turns into a club after dinner. The restaurant was dark with low lighting, but the music was bumping and it had a cool asian fusion vibe. We called ahead for reservations because they only seat people at 2 time slots during the night.

Apparently, they are known for their sake bombs....
I had never personally taken a sake bomb before so it was new to me. But, I enjoyed it! They served the sake bombs with the choice of cold or hot. We opted for the cold option with pear cider...YUM. The food was great too...and it better be cause this place was not cheap! But, definitely fun for a Friday/Saturday night out with the girls!

Bonafide Tourist

One of my favorite things to do in the city is become a tourist on the weekends. I love showing my friends around and doing new things I haven't done before..and in this city it feels like that happens frequently.

Also, with the frequency of gorgeous days we had in January, I've had some fun this past month!
