Black Horse London Pub, which happens to be the smallest bar in San Francisco. It's just around the corner from our apartment. There are only 8 stools and 5 beer choices, and the owner, James, hangs out behind the bar and knows everyone by name. They don't have a fridge, so he just ices down the beers in a bathtub behind the bar...so awesome. We hung out with 2 other couples (and a baby!) for a few hours and it felt just like Cheers.
local pho spot. It was cold and dreary in SF on Friday, so it really hit the spot.
Philz Truck, which is parked near Fort Mason on Saturdays and Sundays, and we had to get a bit creative on how to carry the drinks home on the scoot (didn't really think that one through...). We somehow managed to only spill a little bit.
After our coffee fix, we drove up to Tomales Bay. It's about a 1.5 hour drive north from San Francisco, but it is so scenic and feels like a total escape. Our first stop was The Marshall Store, our favorite spot for fresh oysters.
Diekmann's General Store to pick up a few bottles of wine. We also couldn't resist hitting up the bakery across the street for some strawberry rhubarb pie (because, birthday obviously).
Inn on Tomales Bay, a very quaint and affordable bed and breakfast with sweeping view of the bay. Our room was very modest but had amazing bay windows and a cozy fireplace. Since there was no TV in the room and no cell phone or internet connection to be found, we played Scrabble (I won, of course) and listened to the extensive CD collection (Elvis, Bob Dylan, Nat King Cole - so great).
Nick's Cove for dinner. We snagged a table on the porch overlooking the water, and enjoyed the sun setting over the bay. We ate (more) BBQ oysters, lobster mac-n-cheese, clam chowder, and brussels sprouts (WE'RE SO HEALTHY RIGHT?).
Perry's Deli to pick up sandwiches to go. We both agreed that if Perry's was in San Francisco, we'd eat there weekly. Our Reuben and Cuban sandwiches were to die for.
We drove over to the Bear Valley Visitor Center and then took a hike to the Point Reyes National Seashore. The hike was 4.5 miles each way and took us through meadows, forests, and along the shoreline.
