Musical in the City - The Wedding Singer

Wedding Singer - Victoria Theatre program
Mijo and I went to see Bay Area Musical's production of The Wedding Singer at the Victoria Theater in the Mission District. The tickets were Christmas gifts from our loved ones A and B.


It was a small production compared to the Broadway shows staged at the Orpheum, Golden Gate or Curran but it was good nevertheless. The production felt more  intimate and yet casual.

Dinner in the City - Delfina Restaurant

Delfina - Menu bw
Mijo and I were at Delfina restaurant last in 2014 and we have not been there since. We love the restaurant and for our first restaurant splurge of the year, we decided to go back to Delfina. 

Same tasty dishes, same very friendly service, a new satisfying experience!

Art at the Airport - American Folk Art at SFO Museum

SFO Museum - American Folk Art sign bw
I was at SFO recently to drop-off  Mijo for his trip abroad. While waiting for him to finish check-in, I had time to walk around the International terminal and had an enjoyable time looking at the airport's art displays about American Folk Art near Gate A.

Everyday Coffee in the City - Peet's Coffee and Tea's Baridi Blend

Peets Coffee - Baridi Blend bw
For this week, while Mijo is on a trip abroad, I got creative and decided to try a couple of new coffee blends. My first in the list was called Baridi Blend by Peet's Coffee.

I've been told that this coffee is made for cold brewing but I love it brewed hot. This medium roast coffee is flavorful.

Play in the City - Pinter's The Birthday Party at A.C.T.

Happy Birthday - American Conservatory Theatre bw
Thanks to my friend D, for her excellent choice in which play to see. We saw a Harold Pinter classic The Birthday Party at the A.C.T. 

If you want a good play and solve some mystery, watch this one. Very well acted, as well.

Light snack in the City - Waystone

Waystone - Rose Pinot Noir Cellars 33 2016 bw
I met up with my friend D for a light lunch before going to see a Harold Pinter classic The Happy Birthday at the A.C.T. 

We decided to go to Waystone just because we've never been there and it is within close walking distance from A.C.T. We got lucky because the place serves good food and drinks and the service is super friendly.
