Days 60-63: Daylight Savings

Day 60 Even without a drought, I think restaurants should do this–though the server at Farmer Brown gave us water anyway, without us asking. Day 61 I’ve written about YakiniQ before, right? All-you-can-eat Korean BBQ in San Francisco? We went on Saturday before catching the latest (and last?) Miyazaki, The Wind Rises. Both were A+. There is […]

Muni Trade-off

Have you ridden the new Muni buses? I’ve only seen them on the 2 line, still clean with their plastic seats and plastic smell. The stink sucks but I’ll take the unsticky seats in exchange.

House of Prime Rib: You Win

I wrote this last night but couldn’t publish it via my phone. Technical difficulties. Please stand by. I’m so full, you guys. Full like if I get up and walk a few steps, jostling my over-filled stomach, I feel ill and have to stop to catch my breath like an old man with emphysema. It’s […]

Catching Up on 100HappyDays: Days 36-43

Life gets in the way and, suddenly, I’m two weeks behind on 100HappyDays. I’ll have the second catch-up post later tonight! Day 36 I think the point of 100HappyDays was finding the little moments of delight even in crappy or nondescript days. Day 36 was definitely one of those, the days where everything was “meh” at best. […]

Much Weird, Much Yums [100HappyDays]

What does this look like to you? Standard pizza, right? Cheese, crust, green stuff, orange stuff. It’s all a lie. This, my friends, is not a standard pizza. This is a vegetarian Indian pizza from Zante’s Pizza and Indian Cuisine in Bernal Heights. My poor brain was super confused last night: it looks like pizza […]

I found three San Francisco sources that will blow your recipient away with their eco-friendly excellence. Farmgirl Flowers First up on the list is Farmgirl Flowers, a florist that sources its blooms from […]

4 Days of Nom [100HappyDays]

More catching up! I might as well turn this into a food blog… Another thing you eat for Chinese New Year is hot pot, where you cook things (all the things) in a pot of boiling hot water. Thus, the name. It’s the thing to do because you can keep the hot pot going the […]

Day 16-21 Catching Up [100HappyDays]

I know, I’m so behind! Here’s Day 16 through 21 in rapid-fire succession. Continuing last week’s theme of awesome weather, Day 16 was one of my days off and I got to spend a whole afternoon soaking up the sun at a park. Grass, and flowers, and trees–even an elaborate fountain with waterfalls–in the middle […]

Sorry, East Coast [100HappyDays]

While winter storm Janus dumps truck loads of snow on the East Coast, San Francisco is having a week of 70-degree weather. This makes no sense as January’s average temperature is 57 degrees, but I’m not complaining. The sky is clear + the fog is at bay + the wind is calm == happy Amy

Much Food, Much Happy [100HappyDays]

Day 13: Meat makes me happy. I’m an unabashed, unashamed carnivore. Last night, we had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants: YakiniQ of the all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue. These types of restaurants are huge in Los Angeles but YakiniQ is the only one in San Francisco—thankfully, they are the exact opposite of “sucks.” Day 14: Chocolate also […]
