Our room at Hotel Vitale on the Embarcadero had a view of the Bay Bridge. Lovely.
Pre game farmer's market visit, where our friend and food blogger Pim of Chezpim, was selling her award winning jams.
Game day at Candlestick. Tailgateing with fellow New Orleanians. Josh getting into the mood with a quick game and pose. Heisman.
We got on the field for pre game and saw up close the Saints' game faces. Love me some Jimmy!!
It was a crazy game and ended as a true heartbreaker. This photo says it all.
We made it out of there with our lives. (Actually we had a pretty good experience with the 49ers fans.) And headed to Nojo in Hayes Valley. An awesomely delicious and very interesting Japanese tapas/skewer restaurant.
We did some sight seeing, SFMOMA (great Richard Serra show) and some shopping around.
Love this advertisement.
On Sunday we headed down to Los Gatos to eat at Manresa. Josh's best buddies 2 star Michelin restaurant for an amazing meal. You must eat here before you die.
David at the bar.
An egg dish like nothing you have ever had before.
We headed south to Santa Cruz to hang out with Pim and David for Monday. The Dream Inn on the beach was a great stop for us.
Only kidding, but time IS my enemy at this point in my relationship with my face. I love this mask so much. Made by Mario Badescu. It is light and tingly and makes my face feel amazing!! Also available at my local Earthsavers.
We had a great New Year's Eve in the hood with 3 parties- including kids. The Florence's had a live singer songwriter and violinist with the best Cusimano veggie lasagna on the table. Second, a fresh sushi making fete at the Levine's, with a piano player and lots of champagne. And the third and final, at the amazing Herrington mansion with Curry pork tenderloin, fireworks, sparklers and all the trimmings. A great new year is ahead, indeed.
