Cupcakes, quilting and ten foot unicycles.
This past week, Thom and I held our first ever hosting. Four girls from Rochester came up for a conference in the city. It wasn't as bad as I thought it could have been, especially knowing that there were six people sharing one bathroom. Eeek.
But we were troopers, they were troopers and I had a great time exploring more of the city with them and discovering new go-to places to eat and see, like this cupcake shop on O'Farrell St by Union Square called Cako. They had delicious cupcakes in all kinds of amazing and yummy flavors. I ended up buying some and eating them later that night with wine and season 3 of Dexter. Probably a top 10 best night here in San Francisco.
the infamous Bushman, for real. [Sorry, no picture of me screaming hysterically] We visited the sea lions on Pier 39 and then grabbed some o-so-delicious sour dough bread bowl crab chowder at one of the street vendors on Jefferson and Taylor. YUM.
Confession: I'm a sucker for any food were there is customer interaction, so when we received our Arnold Palmers, my mind was blown. There was a glass full of chipped ice and lemon sour concentrate followed by two carafes of iced tea and liquid sugar. By doing that, I was able to make my Arnold Palmer as sweet or as tart as I so pleased. And for me, it was tart-perfection because I cannot stand the overtly sweetened Arizona's Iced Tea Arnold Palmers.
All in all, a great week with old friends, new places and a whole-heck-of-a-lot of food!
