My boyfriend and I decided to take a day trip to San Francisco for his birthday on Saturday. Some advice: if you’re planning on traveling to SF through Marin to get to the Golden Gate bridge so that you can park and walk across it, do not go on a Saturday afternoon! There was absolutely nowhere to park and there was a ton of people (to be expected). We’re going to try again another time. It was still nice to drive across the bridge (I haven’t been on the Golden Gate bridge since I was four). We ended up driving to the beach, then back towards Union Square and walked around. If you like coffee, make sure to go to BLUE BOTTLE COFFEE (we went to the Mint Plaza location). It was a bit of a wait, but the staff was friendly and the coffee was incredible. All around, really nice cafe. We proceeded to walk up a four block hill (Mason Street) which killed, but was worth it. Ended up back by the beach, and had dinner at La Trappe Cafe (great place). The downstairs was unfortunately booked for an event, but we still had a good time. Really good food. The beer list is bigger than their menu! It’s basically a binder. 🙂
Anywho, that was my weekend. If you go to SF make sure to get some coffee at Blue Bottle!
