Everyday Coffee in the City - Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast by Peet's Coffee and Tea

Peet's Coffee and Tea - Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast
It has been a while since the last time we bought a bag of coffee that we really enjoy. This week, we are drinking a blend called Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast by Peet's Coffee and Tea. 

We have paired this coffee with different snacks and its flavor is layered differently depending on the sweets and pastries we paired it with. We truly love this coffee.

Cirque in the City - Luzia by Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil - Luzia sign
It was Auntie Glo's idea to go see Luzia by Cirque du Soleil.  With another aunt Auntie Madz, Auntie Glo and I went to finally see it a week ago.

Eventhough this I've seen several Cirque du Soleil's shows, Luzia is refreshing and entertaining as if it was my first time seeing one.

Art in the City - Andy Warhol at SFMoMA

SFMoMA - Andy Warhol Elvis National Velvet bw
I recently visited the SFMoMA. I had been to the museum more than once this year so instead of seeing its entire collection all over again, I've decided to focus on one artist each time I visit.

My first artist on focus is one of my favorites Andy Warhol.
Seeing his works once again but spending more time on each work was refreshing.

Murals in the City - Shannon St. murals

Shannon St Murals - Murals bwOn our way to Tselog, my good friend Dinah and I chanced upon this alley dotted with murals. The alley is called Shannon St.

It is hard not to miss it because of the colorful blasts it gives. The alleys just stands out while standing either on Geary St. or O'Farrel.  We checked it out and discovered more than just colorful art displays.

Filipino food in the City - Tselog on Jones St.

Tselog - Sign bwMy good friend Dinah and I went to Tselog on Jones St. for lunch before going to see the wonderful musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

I've been to Tselog's location in Daly City and enjoyed it but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they have a San Francisco location. I love it!

Musical in the City - Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Posters and People bwFirst, thanks so much to my good friend Dinah for suggesting to see this musical. I forgot if she had seen this show before in NYC. If she did, she must have really liked it to see it again here in SF.

Second, I absolutely enjoyed the show. This is probably one of the most demanding musicals, in the acting and singing department, I've ever seen. I liked it so much I might just see it again this week.

Lunch in the City - Tartine Manufactory

Tartine Manufactory - Menu Number bw
Mijo and I recently had a wonderful lunch at Tartine Manufactory in San Francisco's Mission District. Overall, we liked the food and enjoyed the lunch.

We knew not to go there on the weekends and parking during the week was going to be bad.  After our lunch, we learned that the best time to go there during the week is during non peak hours. We'll definitely be back for more.
