We arrived in San Francisco on Wednesday, and we had a lovely bachelorette party dinner at Heirloom Cafe before turning in for the night at The Palace Hotel. I recommend both places. (Sadly I couldn’t stay out for the dancing shenanigans – darn time the change and prego problems!)
On Thursday, we did a bridesmaid brunch before splitting up to explore. Kevin and I hit up Palace of the Fine Arts, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Ferry Building, Ghiradelli Square, and Pier 39. I really recommend Fog Harbor Fish House on Pier 39, which is where we had dinner. Amazzzzing clam chowder!
On Friday, we left the city for the rehearsal picnic lunch at Armstrong State National Reserve. The redwoods were enormous!
Kevin and I made sure to hit up a couple wineries after the picnic, including Joseph Swan and Kendall Jackson. At my request, we also stopped in at Russian River Brewing Co. Though I could only have a sip of Pliny the Elder, I still think it was worth the stop.
Saturday was wedding day! Since I was in the wedding and unable to snap photos, I don’t have pictures yet. Hopefully the photographer will have some good ones. We spent Saturday at more wineries.
The best wife ever award goes to me! As we drove from the Santa Rosa/Calistoga area back to San Francisco, I drove Kevin to 6 wineries. Best wine = Hall. Best view = Cuvaison. Most chill atmosphere = Alpha Omega.
Wow… that was a long post. Thanks for hanging in there!
