Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!
We thought the Dragon's Beard candy would be the highlight of the day, but we didn't know what what Uncle G had in store for us! We had been wandering around Chinatown and thought we could use a break. Maybe get some tea somewhere and we walked by Vita Leaf Tea and thought why not? So we walked in and were the only customers and there was a long bar and we were not sure what to do. Just take a seat? Order from someone? Don't know. Then Uncle G came over and was just like sit, sit and proceeded to make us tea after tea to taste. I don't really know that I can explain how much fun this was. Uncle G was hilarious and just kept going on and on. Telling us stories about what to do when we are out at the clubs, guessing how old he is, telling us the correct way to brew tea, everything was done in such a fun way. Oh we laughed so much. I loved Uncle G!
Uncle G making some tea
We did at some point get some more people who came in to try some tea, but none of them lasted very long.
We were there forever drinking tea and having a good time. Really we could have sat there for a lot longer, but eventually Uncle G had to go. I brought some tea home with me and the Jasmine is my favorite I have ever had. So so tasty! I am so glad we stopped in and tried some tea! Afterwards though it was like we were on drugs or something. You should have seen us try and walk down the street...I don't know what was in the teas they made us, but it was interesting! Highly recommended!!
Patricia's friend had recommended the margaritas at the Gold Dust Lounge so we stopped by for some drinks.
After drinks it was time to find some dinner, so we headed back towards our hotel
The crazy windy street - we only went by after dark as we were too tired the next day to make a trip by there
Dinner at a Thai place. I have no idea which place it is as I didn't write it down and don't remember exactly where it was. It was tasty once we added some spice to it.
Our first day in San Francisco was a lot of fun. We walked all over the place and were pretty tired by the end of the day. Chinatown was more fun that I expected - the Dragon's Beard candy and Uncle G made it a day to remember! Next up - Alcatraz
