Woohoo! It’s an extra happy hour today in the Carambula household because we’re heading out to sunny (hopefully) California! Aaron and I will be taking some time away from our computers, which rarely happens. We’ll also be hanging out with friends and even meeting some of you, our internet friends! We’re pretty pumped!
If you’re in San Francisco, we’ll be hanging out at a still-undecided bar this Saturday and we’d love to see you. I’ll be tweeting while I’m away, so if you’re up for hanging out with me and some type-lovers (Aaron is a Friend of Type), just check my twitter feed and come hang out, I’d love to meet you!
There are some definite must-see places in and around San Francisco that I will not be missing: Omnivore Books, Pot & Pantry, the Ferry Building, Blue Bottle Coffee, Tartine, Heath Ceramics… life is hard, I know. But I wanted to know, where would you go? Is there a place that I just shouldn’t miss? Perhaps a great cocktail bar? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Cheers! To taking time to relax, have fun and hang out with friends, old and new.
