Bakery in the City - Destination Baking Company

Destination Baking Co - CrowdI love our sleepy neighborhood Glen Park. I'd like to think it is San Francisco's hidden gem. If you want to witness SF locals in action, this is one of the places where it happens. I always chuckle when I see tourists by the Glen Park subway station totting cameras and spreading open their maps and looking like they're lost.

Everyday Wine in the City - Stag's Leap Merlot

Stag's Leap 2008 Merlot
It is a cool autumn Monday evening and Mijo and I were both very hungry and tired. We had left over meat from the other night so Mijo concocted another one of his spontaneous recipes. Voila - sweet and Sour marinated peppered beef.  Super delicioso! What took 20 minutes to prepare only took 5 minutes to eat.

Wine Bar in the City - Vin Debut

After our super friendly neighborhood wine bar closed shop, we've been in search for similar venues. This means wine bars serving delicious wines without the airs. So far, we've found a wine bar called Vin Debut in the West Portal neighborhood of the city. It is close enough from our neighborhood and it is also in close proximity to good restaurants and cafes.

More Picassos in the City

Since I bought over 40 postcards from the Picasso exhibitions at the De Young Museum and at the SFMoMA, I thought I'd post some of the ones that I liked and those that intrigued me because of the technique and the story behind them. I'll arrange them chronologically so you can see the progression of his paintings and how he adopted different styles.
