I was lucky enough to hang with my 3 favorite ladies (my mom and 2 sisters) and head to the city for a fun girls trip last weekend. Here were some of the highlights (via my iPhone):
Thursday night dinner at Bar Agricole – this place has the most amazing vibe… one of our favorite parts? The custom lighting fixtures by Nick Weinstein. Be sure to try the scallops & peaches starter, fried halibut & squash blossom appetizer, summer soup, gem salad and the petrale sole (if they have it… it was a special). Their bourbon cocktails were delicious too!
One of my favorite friends is ditching Cali for Boston (boooo) and hosted her going away party at Harper & Rye – which I loved. Be sure to grab the Frankie & Levi if you are into bourbon…
We started our Friday morning off with a kick butt workout class at my sister’s gym, and then worked our way to the ferry building for our favorites – Blue Bottle hot cocoa, Cowgirl Creamery breakfast sandwiches and Pressed Juicery green juice.
After a morning of getting ready, we headed for a quick bite at Split – I highly recommend the No 7 and No 45 (on gluten free bread!). They had great salads too…
Friday my sisters and I went to Outside Lands, kicking off the festivities at the Pandora pre-party and then making our way to Golden Gate Park. I am not a regular in the festival scene (ok I’ve never been to one before), but it was a pretty awesome experience. Dancing to Chromeo and Kayne with my sisters was definitely a highlight of the year and the amazing food didn’t hurt either 🙂
Saturday I hit up the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market to grab breakfast and do some shopping for the week. If you are ever in the area be sure to stop by the SOW booth and try the Dame and/or Prescription, and then swing by the Craftsman-Wolves booth for some pastries (I was obsessed with the Creme Fraiche & Muscovado Morning Bun and the Yellow Corn, Stone Fruit & Basil Scone).
We spent the day shopping and then got ready and enjoyed an amazing meal at Hakkasan. I’ve consistently had great dinners there and highly recommend the Crispy Duck Salad, Spicy Prawns, Sweet & Sour Pork with Pomegranate Seeds and the Exotic Fruit Platter). Their cocktails are next level too…
Working on my wishlist for restaurants/shops for our next trip… any recommendations are welcomed!
