Mijo and I recently found an innovative and good ice cream place with an urban vibe. We started going to Smitten Ice Cream on Valencia St.

Summer may be over but this place is definitely one of our go to ice cream places near the neighborhood.

Cafe south of the City - Mint and Honey in San Carlos

Mint and Honey - Sign bw
I went for a volunteer job at Habitat For Humanity in San Carlos and decided to go to Mint and Honey afterward.

I rarely venture out of the City for cafes. Mint and Honey was a great find in San Carlos. Quiet nook, friendly service and they serve good coffee. I'd go there again.

Race in the City - JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge

JPMC Corporate Challenge 17 - Sign
Thanks to my employer, I was able to join and run the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge with my colleagues at work. 

This year, the route is longer a little over 3.5 miles and I still beat my record from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and I still had time to take pictures of the picturesque route.

Mijo and I took our friend Dinah's advice to see the musical Something Rotten. After a long time of not seeing a musical, we were so happy that Something Rotten did not fail to entertain.

We absolutely enjoyed seeing it and totally recommend it to anyone to go see it.

For our last wine tasting that day, Mijo, B and B and I went to Gary Farrell Winery.  We hadn't had a lot of Pinot Noir tastings that day so it was great to finally tasting some.

Noble Folk Ice Cream and Pies - Street view bw
After our lunch at Barndiva, we walked around the corner and found Noble Folk Ice Cream and Pie. We were craving for something sweet so it was a lucky that we chanced upon this ice cream and pie place.

It was a great addition to our day trip to Sonoma Wine Country.
