And now I'm replying on my thread to you- it's all Jenny, Jenny, Jenny today....

All was delicious, and I have to say thanks for noticing the pretty pics- the new and better camera (That was unfortunately wigging out half the time and wouldn't let me use flash when I wanted to) takes much, much clearer pics than my old one. VERY happy with the camera (except for that flas problem, which I have not had since CA, go figure!).

I'm adding both of them to my to do list! Which seems to be a never ending list. There's just too many great little surprises in that city.

I don't know if you're still in the city, but some of my favorite random bay area things are:
- Seward Street Slides (more info on yelp, super random, mostly just a fun excuse to explore the Castro)
- Rock Wall Wine Company in Alameda (really weird location for a winery, but amazing view of the city from across the bay)
- All the little restaurants on Belden Place (It's a tiny alley off of Bush St between Kearny and Montgomery with at least 5 different, all delicious restaurants. At night with all the lights it looks like a scene out of a movie. Great food and a fabulous hidden away atmosphere. )
Thank you!! And no, I am unfortunately NOT still there, but I will be back someday- so glad I could come up with some stuff you haven't done! You will absolutely LOVE Yank Sing- INSANELY delicious....

And...THE SLIDES!!!!!! I had them on my list, but we never made it- I just KNEW they looked like fun! I mentioned them MONTHS ago to the tour guide we used, and he was not familiar with them, but said he would figure it out- but I believe he forgot, and I did not speak up about it during the tour because we were doing other things. But now, reading your comment, I am so bummed we didn't go!! I thought me boys would have loved it- oh well. I think we saw so much else with him (Holgar), and I could not figure out how to get there on my own, so we didn't. I will make note of the winery and restaurants for another time- when my hubby and I come back (which I know we will, because that city even impressed Pods, it is just so stunning! Lucky you, 6x a year!

Totally, yes- we did just love it!

Ugh - now that I can't eat stupid gluten, I suppose I will never eat there again. GAH!!!!

Do they use wheat flour? Aren't the dumplings all made with rice flour? Couldn't you bring non-gluten soy sauce with you?

Still hoping to do the Cali trip next summer, but I am looking at furlough (I work for the lovely federal government) starting next week, so we'll see what effect that has!
That really STINKS- I hope you are not on un-planned vacation for too long.
