Back Logs + Picnics in SF

1 Feb

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, New Years Eve, and, if you’re Japanese, お正月, New Years Day.  I have a huge back log of posts that I’m still drafting and tons of pictures that I’m going to post as soon as possible!

Ok, now that we’re done with formalities, let me do a quick and dirty post.  The other day, Normalicious took me out on a date.  We went to Bi-Rite Market in the Mission District, and grabbed two sandwiches to eat at Dolores Park.  The sandwiches were just ok, but Bi-Rite’s not really known for sandwiches….no sir.  They’re known for their UBER delish ice cream.


Bi-Rite Creamery, which is just across the street from their market, has one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had in SF.  I’m not sure if they’re organic or if they use non-GMO ingredients but damn, it sure is some guuuuud ice cream.  We hit up the creamery after our picnic in Dolores Park.  Even though it started to get cold, we still just HAD to get ice cream. I got their two seasonal flavors, Meyer Lemon and Orange Cardamom. He got Malted Vanilla and Brown Sugar with Ginger Caramel. Yes, we both got two scoops, two flavors each. We don’t mess around when it comes to dessert.

When we were relaxing in Dolores Park, we experienced the unique-ness that makes San Francisco a very left winged community.  A middle-aged woman was going around selling “magic brownies.”  Everyone there was busting out with beer bottles and ha$# pipes.  I never knew Mission Park was a hip spot for that kind of business.  Needless to say, I did not partake in any illegal activity.  The boyfriend and I just sat, ate our sandwiches, and people watched.  He drew while I read, and just had a really lovely and relaxing day.
