A full day is a happy day. Today we woke up in Cupertino, made a necessary stop at Blue Bottle Coffee (one of my favorite cappuccino’s ever) in Palo Alto, and then headed to San Francisco for the olive oil tasting I’ve been looking forward to since we left D.C., at the design and consulting firm known as IDEO. The office was by the piers on the water. The cracks in the wooden floors revealed the water below, and the garage doors were lifted to invite a gentle breeze. Prosecco, cheeses, prosciutto and Libellula olive oil made for a special Thursday afternoon aperitivo. A wonderful way to start our time in SF!
This evening I had dinner with a friend from college at a place called Trick Dog which reinvents its menu every few months. Delicious food accompanied by complex cocktails.
