When: September 2018
Where: San Francisco, CA
Stayed: San Francisco Marriot Marquis
My sisters and I managed to keep my Mom’s birthday weekend in San Francisco a surprise for 6 months!! We could hardly contain ourselves. Be warned, this was mainly an eating weekend (as almost all our trips are, ha). I chose to focus on being together instead of getting the best photos — enjoy!
Day 1: We got in Friday morning, checked into the hotel, then walked 15 minutes to Sightglass Coffee. I had a delicious Iced Vanilla Cold Brew and an Everything Croissant. We then took an Uber to Boba Guys & Sunday Bird. We walked our lunch off and made our way to Alamo Square/The Painted Ladies to take in the view and relax. We had dinner at Delarosa’s (highly recommend their pizza and chocolate torte cake) since it was close to our hotel.
Day 2: The whole reason we went to San Francisco was to take my Mom to Everlane. We went for breakfast at Samovar Tea then headed to our “Cut The Line” appointment at 10 am.
We had lunch at Chowder’s at the Fisherman’s Wharf. We saw the seals lounging on the docks, then walked around for a bit. The weekend crowds started to get a bit crazy so we ducked out and headed to Crissy Fields.
We couldn’t leave San Francisco without seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, so we walked around and enjoyed the view. We ate dinner at Beretta to celebrate my Mom’s birthday (thankfully only a 30 minute wait). We turned in for the night and Uber Eats some bubble tea to our hotel room.
Day 3: My sister and I woke up at 4 am to Lyft back to SFO and catch our flight to MSP.
All in all, a quick but fun weekend. Cheers to surprising your loved ones and spending quality time together.
