September 7th, 2016: When we arrived in SF, the weather was so nice. Turns out that it was the hottest day of the week at 70 something. Stay at the Post Hotel which was only a 5 minute walk from Union Square so naturally, that was the first place we went. The Apple store was cool with these long sliding doors/windows. Felt so open inside with a second floor open to the public to work/charge your phone.

They had a cool Lebron art dedication at the very top floor. All these images pieced together turned into a flying Lebron.

Walked out of Chinatown and we begin to see changes in the neighborhood.

Turned out to be Little Italy in Northbeach. Cafes everywhere with tables on the sidewalk.

Saints Peter and Paul Church at Washington Square Park. This was a really nice area where lots of people took their dogs to play around with other dogs.

Sotto Mare – 6 West coast and 6 East coast oysters. The East coast were a bit sweeter and the West coast were saltier but both good flavor.

Cioppino! A delicious tomato seafood stew that basically had everything in it. Crab, shrimp, squid, clams, scallops, and penne pasta. I loved this!

The wait was very long though for the Cioppino.
