Cutting loose in San Francisco...

I've never been to the West Coast.

Stop laughing.

Seriously, I've never been to the West Coast. And in true Not! fashion I decided it was time to remedy that...

"So I packed my bags, grabbed my wallet and bikini and rode off into the sunset. I arrived in San Francisco where my lover NotItalian was there to sweep me off my feet and in a lavish fashion squired me through the city."

Yeah right.

What really happened was that I took a flight, stayed in a hostel and was nearly walked to death around the city by NotaSong and NotthePretteh. But I had a wonderful time. I nibbled on french made quiche, I walked the "Worlds Crookedest Street" and I had the pleasure of having two old Italian men call myself and the two ladies I was with "angels."

San Francisco is a city the way I like it. Bustling, busy, alive. And given the past year, this was definitely what I've needed. I loved every bit of this trip.

Even the part where I kissed the drunken guy who bought our group shots on Saturday night.

duh duh duh....

I love SF!! It is a wonderful city, and all the walking means that you can drink more :).

The last time I was out there a friend of mine took me to this great steakhouse. Dinner and the wine were excellent...but, about half way through dinner, I looked around and realized my friend was the only woman in the restaurant. Patrons, waitstaff, hosts and busboys were all men.

I asked her what gives and she said, "Oh I forgot to mention we are in the gay part of SF, this is a gay steakhouse."

I've never been to the East Coast, but I used to live in San Francisco in my early twenties. From what I remember, it was really fun.

If you'd said you were going before you went, I would have insisted you go to Crepes on Cole. Seriously, I daydream about that place.

I've never been to San Francisco - I'm from the east coast, but I just moved to Vegas a year ago. I'm much closer to SF now, I'll get there one of these days. Hawaii too.
