Lagunitas.

While on our way to Guerneville and hitting some traffic, we decided to stop by Lagunitas to stretch out our legs and grab a beer. Plus, they have a dog-friendly patio so sign us up! The front patio when you first walk in is self-seating so we found […]

31st Union.

Happy Hour was long overdue for Penny and I, especially since she left our office and joined “the dark side” (and by dark side is that she left and got a better job haha). We were originally going to meet in Burlingame at 6, but because of lovely […]

Sumiya.

There are some days that I would like to turn off my Facebook “On This Day” notifications. I do like to be reminded of the good ol’ days, but some of my Facebook wall posts from a decade ago can be cringe worthy. Anyways, last year around this […]

The Press.

My sister and Jeff scheduled a couple of wedding venue tours since they were in town. We had a couple of appointments booked on Friday, and we had some time between our 1st stop and 2nd, so we stopped by The Press in Pleasanton to grab some brunch. […]

Pho VN.

It was a cool Monday early afternoon and lunch was creeping up. You can see the clouds starting to roll in so soup sounded great. L was telling me about this pho place that’s near her place in Union City and why turn down a great bowl of […]

K-Town BBQ.

I am always craving Asian food, and in particular Korean food. T wanted to take me to dinner before he had to go to work, so we went to K-Town BBQ in Newark. For Korean BBQ, we always go to Gen so we decided to try a new […]

Ramen Shu.

After my Geek Squad appointment for my camera, T and I decided to grab some lunch. We opted for ramen and decided to go with a play we both have never been before: Ramen Shu. Ramen Shu is located in Union City in the same plaza as Marina […]
