I’m going a bit out of order here as I have yet to post pictures from my 10th college reunion (TENTH! Sigh, I’m getting old.), which happened between Dubai and San Francisco, but our little jaunt to the left coast over Easter weekend is still fresh on my mind so I thought I’d share a few pics! We mainly went out there because the Braves were playing the Giants that weekend, so we saw games on Saturday and Sunday and absolutely *adored* AT&T Park.
In the midst of all of the baseball, we also managed to hop around town a bit. Our hotel, The Handlery (thanks Anne for the rec!), was in Union Square, perfect for sightseeing. After landing on Friday afternoon, we checked in and hiked up the hills through Nob Hill to Chinatown for dinner, where we ate at the House of Nanking (thanks Ashley!). Yum.
Saturday was our first time at AT&T Park! It’s a beautiful stadium, one of my favorites (still doesn’t beat Baltimore, I don’t think, but definitely top 3 of the 20 I have been to). And of course the Braves won, so it was an awesome day! After the game, we grabbed a taxi and went to Lombard Street, where we and the other tourists walked up and down the curviest street in the world. Then we headed to Pier 39 for a view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Easter Sunday was a gorgeous day in SF, we met with the lovely Anne and her husband for breakfast, then enjoyed a sunsplashed day at the park where the Braves won again. Oh, and the new American Airlines terminal in SF has a Pinkberry. When oh when is Pinkberry coming to Chicago?!
All in all, it was a whirlwind, but a super-fun trip! It was my first time in Northern California and I’d love to go back and explore more of the Bay Area.
