Chinese New Year & Wine Tasting

I know its true, I do a lot of wine tasting, but when you live so close to Wine Country its kind of hard not to! A few weekends ago my sorority alumnae group met up and we went wine tasting in the city to a place called August West Winery. Little did I know there are actually wineries in the city. They get their grapes harvested in wine country and then bring them back to the city to make the vino. 

After our wine adventure we decided to take a pit stop at the Chinese New Year Parade in ChinaTown which is apparently the biggest festival outside of China. It was crazy!! We saw a lot of fun costumes, dancing and fireworks. I will definitely go to that again!

pit stop in front of the Fairmont Hotel. can we say Bachelor?

Day in Tiburon

A few weekends ago, my friend Shay and I decided to house sit for a co-worker in Tiburon. After we finished we went to the ever so famous 'Sam's Restaurant' on the point in Tiburon. Many people from the city venture over to Sam's on the weekends to have brunch and mimosas on nice days. It was a pretty cloudy day when we went, but we got some sun peaking out every so often and it was perfect. The view is also to die for and so was the food! We obviously went into food comas.
Also, Shay had never ridden on a ferry boat before so we decided to take the ferry back to the city. It was fun to go with her on her first time!
Such a fun day out in Tiburon!
