San Francisco trip

I would like to say I have a lot to update on but...notso much.

I went to San Fran this past weekend through Wednesday for a business trip. Went to some fantastic restaurants, wineries, ballgame, and shopping areas. We had FANTASTIC seats at the ballpark (see photo above).
$5 wonton soup as San Sun. This was chicken & leek wontons. It was QUITE delicious. I would go back here again!
Red Blossom Tea Company on Grant Street. I read Jeni's blog ( about this tea shop...and I will be the first to admit that I scoffed at the idea that tea is such a big deal. I just thought, "what a tea snob." Then I talked to Alice. That girl is a GREAT sales person. Just look at my President & sales rep enraptured in her presentation. I told her that I remembered this shop but remembered it being so cramped and crowded. She shared with our group that she and her brother, Peter, underwent a "hostile takeover" to redo the shop into their own vision. After her sales pitch, I bought a ton of teas. She kept bringing me more and more. She actually told my group that I had a more "refined" taste in tea. Someone piped up, "you mean she's a tea snob???" Alice just smiled. They all laughed because the day before my President called me a wine snob which I strongly objected to. Bastard. Calling me names.

Anyhow, I was quite happy with my Bounty and proudly showed it off at San Sun where Alice had directed us to. Thanks, Alice!!
