San Francisco: To-Do List for Out of Towners That Used to Be In-Towners

When I was 19 I got the bright idea to go to Culinary School in San Francisco (a city where I knew no one). San Francisco and I have a love/hate relationship. She loves me, keeps on finding reasons to lure me back; I can stand her until the sun goes down and I freeze my arse off! As soon as I finished Culinary School I moved back to Southern California. But rest assured in 2006 I found myself back in the bay (this time in Emeryville) playing the role of a supportive girlfriend. So all together I’ve spent 4 years of my life in the Bay Area.

It’s not all bad though. I’ve got a long running list of things to do in my upcoming trip to San Francisco! In June it will be 2 years since I left.

East Bay
ArizmendiStrawberry scones, hot cross chocolate buns and double capp’s need to be consumed
