Landmark in the City - Community opening of the Salesforce Transit Center

Salesforce Transit Center - Entrance bw
Finally, the newly opened Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco's Financial District opened to the public during its Community Openhouse. 

Mijo and I went there together with thousands of local San Franciscans to inspect this massive transit venue. Mijo and I love it. It is easily another San Francisco landmark.

Breakfast in the City - Le Marais Bakery

Le Marais Bakery - Sign bw
It was a Friday morning and I didn't have to be in the office that morning. Mijo and I decided to pay this cute bakery tucked inside the Castro neighborhood called Le Marais Bakery.

As always, our breakfast was good, relaxing and dreamy.

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!

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.
