After a week of working (and working out), Brian joined me in San Francisco for some much-needed vacation time. After a quick breakfast and changing hotels, we walked towards the ocean to check out the exploratorium, the Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception. Despite way too many people and kiddos, it was a pretty cool place to learn about scientific concepts.
After walking up an appetite, we dined at two incredible places. We started with cocktails and dinner at Limon Rotisserie, a Peruvian spot that Brian had eaten at the last time he was in town. The pisco sours were awesome, along with two amazing ceviches, a beet and potato salad, yuca fries and cheese empanadas. Everything was amazing! We then walked a few blocks over to Dandelion Chocolate for dessert. I had this amazing Chef’s Tasting complete with a tiny cocoa spritzer.
This morning we started the day with a walk to brunch at Marlowe.
The inside of Marlow, just before the crowd rolled in.
Brunch makes me happy, especially when it’s amazing. Starting with “The Butcher’s Mistress” and the ricotta donuts with raspberry preserves and moving along to a strong cup of coffee and the chilaquiles, the meal was perfect.
We then headed to the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. In the sculpture park outside we found this giant safety pin (by the same artist that made the giant shuttlecocks in from of the Nelson Atkins Museum in KC).
And how ’bout these apples? (Sorry, couldn’t help myself; these ceramic beauties made me do it.)
We checked out more art and this special exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. My favorite part were the clothes, and these hand-drawn dresses in particular.
After the museum, we walked around the park and headed to the corner of the actual Summer of Love. Thanks for stopping by!
