The weekend sure catches up with you, doesn’t it? This week/end was a little chaotic and like life, was filled with some really happy moments and some sad ones.

Earlier in the week, I had the opportunity to hang with the Hush Puppies team and enjoy a Fall brunch with them at Belga. I love their new Fall line and it was the perfect introduction to the season – even if it’s 90 degrees in San Francisco at the moment. And a great way to beat the heat? Cocktails from Palm House. Always.

Ran the OU 5k by the Bay with Ohio University Alumni in San Francisco. Needless to say from the pictures, Andi and I were definitely spirited. We also celebrated my sista and fellow Bobcat’s birthday in Oakland. We sipped beers and celebrated at Temescal Brewery and if you haven’t been, it’s AWESOME. And…FREE POPCORN!

With the good, also comes the sad. Ittai’s grandmother passed away in Israel over the weekend, so please send some good energy his family’s way. I know it’ll help. 🙂

Hope you have a good week!

Hi all,

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I like to explore. And even more than exploring, I love to eat and drink. One of my favorite activities in San Francisco is to pick out a neighborhood and explore new (to me!) bars and restaurants.

I wanted to share some note-worthy favorites and if y’all have any, please share!

Black Sands Brewery: Located in Lower Haight, Black Sands just opened only a few months ago but has made big waves in the ‘hood. Their cocktails are rad (see above) and the ambiance is equally as cool. If you take a step in, you’ll see a tiled skull in the doorway. Instagram-worthy for sure!

West of Pecos: First off, I love West of Pecos food. The guacamole is out of this world. Some of my other favorites? Their chopped harvest salad, huevos rancheros, and their (rather strong) house margarita.

House Rules: I LOVE deviled eggs. It’s weird how much I like them, too. A lot of places do deviled eggs a disservice. House Rules, however, has mastered the deviled egg. Their drinks are phenomenal and some of my go-to’s include “Recess” with Bourbon, pineapple syrup, and lemon juice and the “My Mule” with your choice of alcohol (mine? vodka!), ginger beer and lime juice.

Palm House: Hands down, Palm House has quickly become one of my favorites. Their food is insane, guys. The coconut crusted prawns, smoked cod tacos, and the spicy fries blew my mind. Also, their margaritas (do you see a theme here?) are delicious. Their chipotle mango margarita is a crowd favorite with chipotle infused tequila, mango, lime, and agave. Nom.

398 Brasserie: This trendy destination is located in Union Square, so it’s perfect for happy hour drinks after work. They have a ton of food options (and a full dining area!) and their cocktail menu is full of drinks like Summer of 67 (above) and delicious drafts.

Archive Bar & Kitchen: This place used to (and still is) my go-to for happy hours in SOMA/FiDi. It’s quaint on the inside, has outdoor seating, and a killer happy hour. Since my office used to be a block away, I always suggested going since it’s a pretty easy place to get to. I love their frothy drinks (Atlas Apple above) and the happy hour food like their pizzas are awesome if you’re looking for a quick bite.

Cheers!
