San Francisco Baby

We made it fine into San Francisco. Yea! It was nice to just have a denim jacket on rather than the whole array of layers you needed in Canada! As I had already mentioned, it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would have been after the bombing attempt on Christmas day. Canadian/US Customs was pretty organized considering all kinds of new security measures.

We checked into the W and if you turned your room numbers over, you had a fortune and lucky numbers! How cool is that! Only at The W! This was the boys' room.

I loved the Asian flair.

And the foot massager!

Not to mention the beautiful quilt throws.

And the view.

After settling in for a bit, we asked the concierge where to have dinner close by. They told us to go to the Town Hall restaurant, a short walk away. It was absolutely PERFECT!

First we had drinks.

My favorite was the Dorothy Parker, minus the sugar rim. Mmmmm.

Between the four of us, we all "shared" the BBQ Shrimp, Veal Meatballs, Buttermilk Biscuits with Country Ham and Fried Oysters to begin. Yep. Gluttons! Our main courses were Pork Tenderloin with Crispy Belly, Nantucket Bay Scallops and a NY Strip Steak. We were all in heaven.

And for dessert, we had Pot de Creme with a butterscotch topping and a chocolate bombe. Ooooooof! Gonna have to tell my brother Jim about this little addition on top!

Coffee was well needed by this point!

I loved the way the bill was brought out tucked in a book.

I can't tell you how many times we all rubbed Buddha's belly.

He changed colors and was way too cool.

And this was our view as I fell asleep in San Francisco!
I LOVE San Fran!

It's one of my favorite cities. I lived nearby for three months once and spent every weekend exploring it.

Wow Rosemary, you and your family were living the high-life there in San Fran... As an old mountain gal, who has always had to watch her money, I can only dream of an experience like you had. You must have a fabulous hubby!!!!

That was wonderful that you could get away for the holidays. After losing your Mama, getting away had to be the best medicine.

Thanks for sharing...

I love's one of my most favorite cities to visit. If I could afford it I'd live there but it's out of my price range! Thanks for giving me a little mini-visit right here in my office!
