Pretzel – Biergarten

Pretzel - Biergarten
With horseradish and mustard. $4
Biergarten, San Francisco CA

This pretzel was good, but not the best I’ve ever had. I think this is another 7×7 list disappointment. I did like that it came with freshly grated horseradish though. That was a nice touch.

Meat knot – Biergarten

Meat knot - Biergarten
Prosciutto and pickles on a pretzel knot. $7
Biergarten, San Francisco CA

Meh, I really didn’t like this. I think with the meat and wet pickles, it made the dense pretzel kinda gummy and difficult to chew. The pretzel know was also hard to begin with. I wasn’t a fan.

It’s nice to receive a warm “breakfast”, and this was decent. The roll was on the hard and chewy side, but it had ham and cheese so it was bearable. The potato chips were throw-aways (very poor quality). The chocolate cluster wasn’t very good either, but it I’m not gonna complain too much about a sweet treat!

Red wine to ease the international flight – United Airlines

Red wine - United Airlines
Marrenon, Mediterranee, Classique 2011. $7
San Francisco (SFO) to Paris (CDG), United Airlines

Uh, I hate long international flights! I used to get excited about flying, but now it’s such an inconvenience to get to where you want to go. Or maybe it’s because I’m always flying economy, lol! Someone needs to give me their unused upgrades! 🙂 It helps to drink some wine to wind down and relax before settling in for the upcoming movie marathon. And please do yourself a favor and don’t eat the lame Summer Harvest mini pretzels.

Specialty cocktail and pretzels - Virgin Atlantic
A tasty fusion of fruit juices and vodka, Penn State sour cream and chive flavour mini pretzels. Complimentary
London (LHR) to San Francisco (SFO), Virgin Atlantic

This was the “welcome” snack as we departed London. I think they offer you vodka even in Economy so you can calm down, fall asleep, and not bother the airline attendants. I watched more movies on this flight than I would normally watch over 4 months, lol!

Bye, bye London! On the plane headed home and dreading the 9+ hour flight.
