Last Monday, I was bleary-eyed. The redeye flight from San Francisco left me beyond exhausted and it wasn't until this past Saturday that I finally felt well-rested again. This morning, on the other hand, I awoke naturally at 6:30am. I can't remember the last time that happened. 'Twas nice.
But since we're speaking of San Francisco :) we can do one last Foodbuzz recap, right? I sure hope so, because the Farewell Brunch was an amazing highlight.
I doubted I'd even make it as I'd gone out the night before, but once Sunday morning came along, I couldn't even consider not going...there were too many bright, shining faces to see, and sadly say goodbye too. I had the pleasure of sitting with Courtney, Gina, Courtney, Shannon, and more.
The brunch was set up buffet style with quite the selection. Before heading for the food though, I chose to quench my thirst by serving myself a cup of Godiva coffee, and ordering a necessary Bloody Mary alongside a glass of water.
Then, I stocked my plate with challah french toast, goat cheese frittata, scrambled eggs, fruit, a spoonful of granola, and my favorite, Sinhi Breakfast Daal (curry roasted cauliflower and crispy almond slivers). And I had seconds. Delicious.After a flurry of an exchange of business cards and goodbyes, I met up with a friend of mine to walk
It was so great to see those neighborhoods I'd wandered through the year before again. We even stopped inside the quaint (and free) trolley museum,
where I couldn't resist the touristy photo. Later on in the day, I had an even more spontaneous adventure, but I think I'll save that photographic medley for another time. It's worth the wait, I promise.P.S. Above is the one worthwhile photo from that gala dinner I'd been so unbelievably excited about. For as fun as it was to get dressed up, and as cool as it was to watch Tyler Florence on stage, I was unenthused with everything but dessert. No matter what, I think I'll always love a San Francisco trio.
