Pretzels, hot dog, beer. Complimentary
Genentech Concert, San Francisco CA
I was finally invited to attend the Genentech concert this year, yay! It’s great because they buy out AT&T park and all the food and drinks are free. We sat out on the field and watched Colbie Callait, Foo Fighters, and Usher! I got kinda drunk, but had a great time. I also won stuffed animals playing carnival games. :)
Big Malt chocolate ice cream. Complimentary
Hot dog with ketchup. Complimentary
Remoulade, parsley, dill, lemon. $12
Mikkeller Bar, San Francisco CA
These croquettes were pretty delicious! You don’t find salt cod croquettes at most places so these were a treat. They were perfectly fried and the perfect with the remoulade. I definitely used all of the lemon to cut through its fried richness along with the dipping sauce. Noms!

Mikkeller Spontanfig. Lambic-style with figs. $12
This bar is known for their sour beers, and this one was very good. It’s good to try new and different things. :)
Anson Mills cheddar grits, poached eggs, fried shallots. $14
Magnolia Pub and Brewery, San Francisco CA
Gross! This was probably the most bland dish I’ve ever eaten that had pork belly and/or grits in it; and I’ve eaten a lot of dishes! I ate half of it because I was starving, then couldn’t eat any more of the crap. The service was also atrocious! The seater tried to make a joke but ended up just being offensive. I didn’t get water until halfway through the meal, and the server was completely clueless about everything whenever she decided to make a rare appearance. I don’t think I have any reason to return to this restaurant.
Blue Bell Bitter beer. $7

Izakaya Roku, San Francisco CA
This was more like salmon sashimi than carpaccio in my book, but what do I know? Hehe. I loved that they threw in salmon roe though and topped everything with greens! The dish was very pretty and tasty to boot – a winner.
Sapporo beer. Happy hour $2
Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, served with French fries. $10.50
Firewood Cafe, San Francisco International Airport(SFO)
As airport food goes, Firewood Cafe is solid. It’s a good value and the food is actually pretty good. This burger was moist and plenty big. I just wish they would toast the buns. The fries were delicious though!
Blue Moon and Sierra Nevada beers.
Jar of kosher dills. $2
Kiss Cafe, Seattle WA
I thought this was really cute to serve a jar of pickles with tongs. The dills tasted great and weren’t too sour or pickle-y.
I can’t remember what kind of beer this was, but they were pretty light like a hefeweizen. I’m no beer expert, so I’m probably wrong, lol!
Habanero Cider, Finnriver Cidery, Chimacum, WA. $8
The Noble Fir, Seattle WA
Mmm, both these glass were really tasty! The habanero cider had just the right amount of habanero flavor without getting too hot and making it unpleasant to drink. And the Imperial Red with chocolate was bold and delicious.
Red Sea Imperial Red with Chocolate, Caldera/Big Island Collab, Portland, OR. $9
