Five Favorites (Vol. 8)

My boyfriend, Matt, and I had a great time exploring San Francisco a couple Sundays ago.  Here’s where we went and what we did:

1. Brava Theater

 One of the women in our Bible study/home group is a theater artist, playwright, and arts administrator.  She wrote Love Balm For My SpiritChild, a play featuring the testimonies of Bay Area mothers who have lost their children to acts of violence, and it was playing last weekend, and will be playing this weekend, at Brava Theater in The Mission, SF.  We’re both so proud of our sister in Christ and the work of healing and love that God is doing through her!

 

2. Bi-Rite Creamery

(Clockwise from top-left) Matcha Green Tea, Basil, Balsamic Strawberry, & Peach.  Matt really loved the basil ice cream, and I still think the balsamic strawberry is the best.  This is such a great spot for quality ice cream!

 

3. Dolores Park

It’s been a looooong time since I last slid down a slide or swung on a swing.  Dolores Park has both, along with a number of other fun play structures, and I had lots of fun getting to be a big kid!

 

4. Palace of Fine Arts

Interestingly enough, the last time we were here together in 2013, we ended up getting into a big misunderstanding.  We got through that little rough patch, but thinking about this particular place always seemed to bring back some funky feelings.  I’m glad that we had an opportunity to come here again, walk around, talk, snap some great photos, and just make a new memory.

 

5. Beach Chalet

A coworker friend of mine who lives in the city recommended the Beach Chalet to me a while back.  I bookmarked it on Yelp and when my Matt and I were trying to think of a place to go for dinner, I was able to finally cross this off the list!  Luckily enough, we got a table for two right next to the window, and were able to eat great food and watch the sunset together.
