I had a wonderful time in San Francisco at the Foodbuzz Blogger Fest this past weekend. It is a beautiful city, with lots to experience and photograph and good food everywhere you turn. I feel like all we did all weekend was EAT! I'm pretty sure, Debby (my lovely roommate) from A Feast For The Eyes would agree with me.
Debby picked me up from the airport (thanks Deb!) and we headed straight to the Wharf for a light lunch before the Foodbuzz festivities began.
After seeing these vibrant fellows, we decided on crab cakes and crab cocktail at none other than The Crab Station!
After our snack by the water, we stopped into Boudin Bakery to smell the aroma of freshly baked Sourdough loves. And to admire the unique creatures they morph out of dough. fun stuff!
Debby couldn't be cuter in this crabby hat :-)
A few snapshots of Alcatraz from the pier....
Then down Lombard Street- the crookedest street in America. I think it's fascinating, but don't understand why anyone would want to live there? This is the view at the top of the hill heading down the street. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture looking up at Lombard.
Then we checked into our hotel, The Sir Francis Drake, which was just beautiful and ornate and the staff could not have been more friendly. They were WONDERFUL!
Our room was so nice and bright and cozy. FYI: Cozy is code for small rooms, with even smaller bathrooms :-)
We registered for the weekend's events, then checked out our goodie bags. woot!
We munched on polenta crusted pork sandwiches with melt in your mouth chicharones (the best meal all night!) spit roasted pork sandwiches with roasted potatoes, seaweed tacos (don't know what they were and didn't really like them, but they were pretty), and beef tacos. I also tried a few other things but don't have the pictures to prove it. That may be a good thing :-)
There were a lot of these...
A lot of this...
And plenty of this!
Lots of memories were made this weekend. I'll have more to share with you soon!
