Back in February, when I went back for Lily’s bridal shower, I ended up getting stranded due to my flight being cancelled, thanks to one of the many storms we had in Boston this past winter. I was thankful for the forced vacation, and had the chance to just hang out and explore San Francisco.
I started Sunday out with some Philz Coffee, then went to RSF and ran into Erik from Boston. That was a fun surprise. Then I went to lunch with Lindsay and Jia Min at West of Pecos, and Lindsay and I met up with Kristyn and Tanya for a mini women’s group reunion at Tartine.
On Monday, Dad and I met Steph at her work so that we could grab lunch together. We had burgers at Flipper’s and they were very good. Then Dad and I got some Blue Bottle Coffee and I had him drive me around the city. Then I got to end the night by catching up with Eric and Franklin over pho in good ol’ downtown South City.
I spent my last day of freedom walking around the city alone–perfect introvert time. I walked to BART and started the day in the Mission with coffee from Four Barrel. Then I went to Tartine, Bi-Rite, and Dolores Park. From there I walked to Thorough Bread, one of my favorite little places in the city, and sat in their back patio (one of my favorite former pastimes). From there I walked to Alamo Square Park and waited for Steph to get off of work. We hung out for a bit, and then it was time to pack up. I had sushi with Tiff and Noelle, and then Tiff and Sarah took me to the airport.
Forced vacations are the best.
