New Year New You


For New Years this year we took a trip to to San Francisco to see all our friends up there. I booked us a suite at the Palace - a super old hotel in the Financial district that was built in 1905.


After checking in we hoofed it down to Saigon Sandwich- which to this day has been the best Bahn Mi I've ever had.


After stuffing our faces we went to meet up with our friend Kerri at the De Young Museum. They had a really great exhibit on Teotihuacan. We also went up to the observation deck and got some really amazing views of the Bay.


The next day we met up with Sophia and took a hike out in Oakland and got some even more killer views.


New Years Eve we got dinner with our friends at Sodini's- a classic Italian join up in North Beach that Kerri recommended. Afterwards we came back to the hotel and passed around bottles of champagne and Tequila until midnight.


Per tradition Kerri made a 2017 effigy for us to burn that we stuffed full of all our bad energy from the previous year. I found this years effigy to be particularly cathartic and I'm super glad we did it!


The next day we all got together for brunch at Bluestem (also picked by Kerri, reco's on point). After lots of hugs we said goodbye and made a little side trip to Ocean Beach before heading home. Till next time SF friends!
