i’m finally taking a break from the go, go, go and decided it would be a good idea to check in.
i had a few fun things going on before the actual start of the foodbuzz festival. let’s talk about it.
thursday night, i rode BART from the airport to my sister’s house. i was about to eat my arm off, so we went straight to mexxi’s.
i went with two tacos: a chicken fajita taco and a fish taco. T4 and T6.
i basically inhales these. they were great.
but what was even more great was seeing these faces.
it was great to spend the night with my sister and nieces. how convenient that she lives so close to san francisco!
friday morning, i woke up bright and early (6 AM! that is sooo early for me…) to catch BART into the city. i ate a bowl of cereal at about 6:45. this is necessary for you to know for later. promise.
i hailed a cab from the station to the hotel. i am telling you this mainly because i have always wanted to use the term “hailed a cab”.
once i dropped my bags off it was time to find some coffee.
i was all alone,but not for long. a bunch of ladies quickly found me and the fun began. ashley had offered to do a little photography tutorial session for those of us interested in learning her sweet skills. and trust me, her skills are super sweet.
the awesome teacher, explaining something important i am sure.
we really learned a lot and had fun messing with our cameras.
i stole these next two photos from ashley.
apparently i thought something was hilarious
the class crew:
thanks for your advice, ashley!
after the photography class, we walked and walked and WALKED to café gratitude.
look who was out front!
what a sweetie.
again, a couple photos stolen from ashley
café gratitude is a vegan, mostly raw restaurant.
seeing as how the ony thing i had eaten all day was a bowl of cereal at 6:30 and it was now almost 1 PM.. I. WAS. STARVING.
gabriella and i shared a sampler.
it seriously amazes me that this was all vegan. it was definitely all delicious.
once i ate a bit of food, i was a happy camper. (photo source: ashley
for my entrée, i ordered the falafel.
unfortunately.. this really hurt my geographic tongue and i couldn’t eat it. i tried to since i was SO hungry, but it really was so painful to eat. sad story.
oh well, we had a great time chatting! (photo source: gabriella)
after lunch, we walked back to our hotels. i met up with my roommates and things really got exciting!
i would go on, but it’s time to get ready for dinner! check ya later skaters.
hope you are all having a glorious weekend!
no Qs.. just an i love you!
