A San Francisco Treat

Good Morning!  Well it’s morning for us over on the west coast :)  Can’t talk long though, we have a beautiful day a head of us in wine country…and I’m still conserving laptop battery.

The Foodbuzz Festival was this past weekend, and while that was my motivation for this trip originally, I actually did very little in terms of participating in the festival.  Mostly because this is a trip with the hubs and I only went to the one event he could tag along to…the tasting pavilion.

So enough words for now…here’s Part 1 in pictures.

Finally got to try the elusive Blue Bottle coffee, and YES it is that good!
