Daily Dose of Ice CreamPosted: August 11, 2011
Maybe I should change the name of my blog. When people ask what they should do while in Berkeley, I can usually only think of food-related activities. Like eating. Duh. When you look at the Berkeley travel tab on the top of my blog there are two links: one for Ici and one for Chocolatier Blue.
Whenever we have company in town I inevitably end up taking them to the Mission in San Francisco to eat at Bi-Rite Deli and Creamery. DIVINE. Yesterday we had a San Francisco day with Brendan’s mom. We went to a couple of sites that we had wanted to visit before leaving, and of course, we took her to Bi-Rite!
First, we went to the Legion of Honor, a gorgeous palace turned museum. I catered a wedding at the Legion and it is on the top of my list of places to get married in the bay area. It is so stunning, and the views from the cliffs of the ocean and the Golden Gate are just stunning.
STUNNING, right!? Next, we went to the Sutro Baths, which are ruins, but used to be a huge salt water swimming complex right on the cliff by the ocean. The ruins are slightly less than beautiful, but the views are great. I actually sat down by myself here and spent a few minutes thinking about my love for San Francisco (and crying about it).
Then!!!! We went to the Mission for a picnic lunch from Bi-Rite in Dolores Park, and then ice cream from Bi-Rite. This is literally my FAVORITE thing to do in San Francisco. I love picnics and I love being surrounded by people relaxing and eating fun food. The
people hipster watching is great!
It’s so creamy I want to die! Ignore Brendan’s mom photo bombing my Bi-Rite pic. Really, this is Brendan’s fault for taking it.
Oh and what? my hair is flying around kind of crazy? Well, sorry because I refuse to adjust my greasy hair more than once or twice a day. Must keep finger grease out of greasy hair! At least my hair can still fly in the wind, right? Not glued down! This was taken on day 3 of not washing my hair. I am trying to wash it every Sunday right now. You can read about why I am not washing my hair here.
Now I’m off to spend the day with A.Jay before I leave her!! sad…
