Le Weekend – Sonoma

photo-1fireplaceI don’t know about you guys, but extensive travel for me these past few years has been out of the question, I just simple don’t have the budget for European excursions.

However my sisters and I made it to Sonoma this past weekend, it started off just being a visit to the annual Bottle Rock concert. However being in Sonoma is a reason to visit some of California’s best winary’s, such as Ram’s Gate.

Plus the menu and offerings are affordable and vary from Flight Tasting to Picnic’s for two. We made reservations for the “Palate Play”, a wine tour and a mouth watering experience.

We ended up going to Bottle Rock afterwards and enjoyed music by The Cure and the next day stopped off at Angelo’s Deli for mouth watering sandwiches and his renowned Garlic Salsa.

Being in Sonoma there are various fruit stands and we stopped off and picked up our farm-to-table produce for our week of detoxing.

Memorial Day Weekend

Thank goodness San Francisco is a foodie town, with new restaurants opening up weekly, there is always a new place to visit and discover.

Besides spending part of my Memorial Day weekend with my boyfriend, Mark.  I became obsessed with sandwiches from 4505 Burgers & BBQ, Iron Side and  Bun Mee.

I was starving when I was at 4505 and forgot to take a picture of my burger, and the same thing happened when Mark took me to dinner  and we ordered the Po’boy fried shrimp sandwich at Iron Side. Both places served  soul-food cuisine, and everything was free-ranged or farm-to-table.

photo-3Since I found myself alone part of the three-day weekend I finally took myself out to Bun Mee, a Vietnamese Sandwich shop, and because of the three-day weekend it wasn’t packed.

I ordered the steak sandwich and sweet potatoe fries. I loved it!

Afterwards I took myself to see Neighbors with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron.  A very funny movie that also featured Dave Franco.

So, what did you guys do?

 

 

Friday Night’s – Fillmore Street

My Friday evenings are usually spent going to dinner and a movie. This Friday my sister Rosemary and I went to one of our favorite restaurants on Fillmore Street, Roam.

We love Roam because everything is either farm-to-table or organic, plus the meats are free-ranged.

Since I’ve been watching what I eat, I’ve been opting for the lettuce wrapped turkey burger, but this time changed it up by adding the gluten free bun.

Instead of the usual sweet potatoe fries, we added the grilled asparagus. Dinner was yummy and I think I finally adapted my taste buds to gluten free bread.

photo1Our movie of choice was Godzilla, playing at the Kabuki theater.  We love the assigned seating and the fact that it’s walking distance from home.

Everyone in the audience was enraptured with the fight scene taking place in China Town, I think they even might have destroyed  a little part of North Beach.

What are your Friday Night’s like?
