Eat the California State Bird in San Francisco

Eating the California State bird? Isn’t that illegal? You’re not even allowed to pick the state’s poppy flower, are you? Technically, neither action is against the law, but there is something so wrong about consuming your home state bird. Yet, at San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions, there is also something so deliciously right. There are only a few states in America […]

Get Swag at a Swanky San Francisco Party

I do a lot of things solo with absolutely no problem; go to the movies alone, eat dinner at fancy restaurants by myself, take tours of attractions, etc. But, there was something about attending the super swanky Vegas Uncork'd preview event in San Francisco that made me nervous. Not only would I be going to this foodie bash solo, but also […]

Eat Pigs Feet and Other Offal in San Francisco

We were supposed to be having dinner with a friend at San Francisco’s Water Bar restaurant. But, at the last minute he had to cancel and I am grateful he did. Not because we don’t love spending time with him, but because I would not have had the adventure of eating pigs feet and other offal […]

Eat Stinky Cheese & Shop for Stuffed Mice in San Francisco

San Francisco's Mission district is a unique section of this incredible town, a mix between artsy, edgy and trendy. A place where you will discover stylish boutiques next to dive bars. My kind of place. Where else can you find the stinkiest cheese shop and stuffed rats on the same street? Peter and my mission in the Mission was […]

8 Reasons I Got Buzzed at a California Wine Festival

I am an avid wine drinker that has a tolerance level of about a glass and a half. More than that and I start to slur my diarrhea of the mouth. Not a feeling I strive for. So, I knew that spending the day in San Francisco surrounded by dozens of coveted, jammy Zins was […]

5 Firsts at San Francisco’s Fancy Food Show

The Fancy Food Show is one of the largest in the world with over 1,300 vendors showcasing over 80,000 food products representing 35 different countries. And there are free samples. A lot of them. I arrived at San Francisco's Moscone Center armed only with my the camera on my trusty Iphone and an empty stomach. Turns out […]

Eat Lamb Brain on a Special Ocassion in San Francisco

I originally wanted to spend our fourteenth wedding anniversary sipping champagne on the veranda of a cozy B&B overlooking the coast, but eating lamb brain in San Francisco was a close second. Though I was unaware of Locanda's offal menu, I have to admit that my eyes sparkled as I read; pig's head, tripe, oxtails or lamb […]

Eat Deep Fried Brussel Sprouts in San Francisco

I believe you already know my personal stance on deep fried food…IT RULES! I am pretty sure that you can even submerse rocky mountain oysters (bull testicles) in hot oil and I would dip them in blue cheese, inhale every morsel and possibly lick my fingers clean. So, of course eating deep fried brussel sprouts […]

Watch a Wild Dinner Theater Show at Teatro Zinzanni

When I think of dinner theater, I think of a cheesy murder mystery evening where attendees attempt to win Oscars with their lack of acting ability, dressed in make-shift costumes from their childrens closets and by the finale no one really gives a crap "who done it".  Maybe…just maybe…I have attended a few of these dinner theater events, […]

Bike Across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

The bike across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco plan was made weeks in advance even though the bridge is a mere 45 minute drive from my home. This was definitely a case of "taking for granted what's in your own backyard".  I had never even walked across what has been called a modern wonder, much less took the […]
