Piano Girl

Lets add the Comstock Saloon in North Beach to "Kim's Favorite Places" list. My friend Antoine kept raving about this place, so we decided to have a date with the city (Carrie Bradshaw style, ya'll) and check out Comstock on a Thursday night.

Can't have a saloon without liquor. The owners are renowned bartenders from Absinthe Brasserie & Bar in Hayes Valley (another spot I fancy), so you know the cocktails are lovely. Something Antoine enjoyed that night, I'm sure.

Grilled shrimp louie salad. Not my fav, but like I said, think this place is known more for their cocktails then their food.

The Lonely Piano Girl... Can you spot her in the picture above? She was lovely.

In other news: I am obsessed with the Instagram App for the iPhone. I've playing with this app all day (and night), if you couldn't tell already from the pictures above!

Passing On That 12 Dollar Movie At The Metreon

Film Night at Dolores Park happened last night. Perfect end to a nice sunny day. The weather was tolerable, and that is good enough to satisfy me. Actually, the fact that Jaws was the featured movie is enough to satisfy me.

The last movie I saw here was some psychedelic acid trip Indian movie..? I have no idea what it was called, but obviously Jaws was so much easier to follow.

Angie, moi, and Jonathan showing our teeth in honor of Jaws. Not as intimidating though, I'm sure.

Anyone notice the full moon last night?

I love movie night. Dolores Park Works has other upcoming events, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the end of August. Who wants to come with me? I'm sad summer is ending soon... Fall is creeping up on us!

"All Of The Lights" - Kanye West

Cop lights, flash lights, spot lights, strobe lights, street lights, all of the lights (of Broadway Street).

The Green, White, And Red

I need to hang out in North Beach more often. Why don't I? I always thought of this neighborhood as a little touristy, but I realized that there's actually a good balance of it being a place where tourist should check out when visiting San Francisco, and a place where local SFians enjoy coming to eat, shop, play, etc.

Around The Bay Gal Xtine and I roamed the streets of Little Italy in search of a few good Italian men. JAY-KAY. We're to busy being heffers thinking about food and shopping to be occupied with boys. And that's pretty much how we spent our time after work last night. The cool thing is that Xtine works a short distances walk from the shenanigans of North Beach. Oh God. I would gain so much weight from having lunch everyday at the restaurants that line up on Columbus Ave if I worked in the area.

We started it. Google Ms. Carol Doda (who can still be seen around North Beach, by the way!). You'll see what I mean.

Xtine and I getting our "Lady and the Tramp" on at Calzone's Cucina. Nice sunny days = dinner outdoors. Oh, and don't mind the bright lights on our faces. We just exude an angelic glow naturally. It's from our souls being pure and virginal. Duh.

Oh look, this is Xtine and I rotting our teeth with the endless barrels of taffy. We stopped by Z Cioccolato to grab some treats for dessert. And for cavities. And diabetes. And an increase of our blood sugar level. If you spend 5 dollars or more, you get a free bag of their in store made caramel popcorn. Just sayin'.

The aftermath. Bucket of salt water taffy. My favorite is the apple pie.

Favorite discovery of the day: Al's Attire. This place is full of custom hand made goods, and if it wasn't for me being in such a budget deficit (look up "Kim's France Trip"), half this boutique would have been gone and in my already full closet. Actually to my surprise, there are a couple of these gems scattered around North Beach. I found a couple boutiques worth making my next shopping trip to.

My favorite building (architecturally) in San Francisco: Columbus Tower.

I can't wait till "summer" to begin. I've gotten a taste of the nice weather in North Beach yesterday, and I would like some more, please.

What Do You Love?

It's obvious where this fella left his heart. He told me him and a total of 6 friends got the same tattoo during this past Pride weekend back in the end of June. Now that is what I call friendship bonding... LOVE!
