A Night in San Fran- Let Wine Weekend Begin

I love vacations because all typical food ‘rules’ go out the window. A breakfast of dark chocolate and coffee at the airport on the way to San Fran and a gourmet cheese tray in bed for lunch don’t make a lot of sense, but on vacation makes perfect sense. Our family took an adult only trip to Napa this fall. My newborn nephew, Enzo, got to tag along since he is fresh out of the oven. We arrived in San Francisco on Thursday afternoon and started the long weekend off right with a seafood dinner at Chaya, right on the water overlooking the San Francisco bay. Something about eating fish while staring at the ocean makes you feel like you are eating it at its prime. It felt nice to sit and enjoy a meal without talking about how much cash we need to get out of the ATM to pay the babysitter and who will be the one to get up at night to feed the baby. After a long six months of caring for a one and a half year old and a newborn, the trip could not have come at a better time!

We stayed at the historic and gorgeous Fairmont Hotel. Nothing says “I’m playing hooky from life” than devouring a cheese plate at 3:30 in the afternoon under the covers in bed at a hotel while watching Austin Powers.

The dinner at Chaya was amazing. I would rather not know how many calories are in the corn chowder soup. I love to tell myself I am eating healthy by ordering fish for my entree and neglect to consider how much I actually ate of the family style macaroni and fontina cheese.

We finished the night back at the hotel at the world famous bar decorated with tropical decor called Tonga Room. I would best describe this cooky bar as the Rainforest Cafe for adults. Open since 1945, I could tell this was an iconic San Fran spot. Isaac was impressed that they had Flor de Cana Rum in 4, 7, and 18 year. My head hit the pillow that night tired, yet relaxed and excited to sleep until I decided to wake up. I do love cuddling and watching Curious George with Maya at 6 am, but a hotel bed with no alarm clock was a special treat.
