Shopping in the City - Newly opened Apple Store in Union Square

Apple Store - San Francisco Store
Another beautiful place opened last week in the city. This time, it was the Apple Store in San Francisco's Union Square district that we got to check out.

The store is shiny, modern, elegant, lots of natural lighting, clean lines and beautiful building overall. Another jewel of a landmark in San Francisco.

Thai Food in the City - Dinner and Drinks at Saap Ver

Saap Ver - Menu designMijo and I have recently been to a newly opened Thai restaurant in the SOMA neighborhood of the city.  Saap Ver is on Division St. and serves great authentic country style Thai food.

Good cocktails, great food and a bonus live entertainment after the dinner rush hour. We loved it. We will definitely go back.

Day Trip from the City - A Relaxing Weekend in Bodega Bay

Bodega Bay - Bodega Head bwMijo and I have been planning a short weekend getaway north of the City.  Bodega Bay came to mind. We both have been to Bodega Bay as a side trip but we've not stayed there.

The scene was picturesque. The air fresh, the view was relaxing, the sounds of the breaking waves soothing. As a bonus, we stayed at a place with no TV, no cell phone reception and no wifi.

Cafe in the City - B Patisserie

B Patisserie - Goodies at Home bwI was in the neighborhood the other day for a doctor's appointment so I decided to finally visit B Patisserie. I've been wanting to go there for years.

Lunch was great. I also brought some goodies home so that Mijo would also enjoy them with coffee. We both liked it and will definitely go back.

Art in the City - SFMoMA Member Preview Day

SF MoMA - Opening bwWe were fortunate to get tickets to the SFMoMA's Member Preview Day. I love the additional collections, the new Snøhetta building, and of course, the existing collections.

It was a lot to take in. I'll definitely have to come back on a weekday after its official opening on May 14.
