Sausalito is gorgeous! That ice cream looks super yummy.

The ice cream was DELICIOUS! There were mac nuts, coconut, coffee, fudge-ohhhh....so so good!

Who cares if you can walk in the shoes, just buy them! They are super cute!

They WERE super cute! But I kinda need to be able to walk dude. I got a lotta places to be! Probably its those shoes fault that I am having an issue purchasing glittery shoes for NYE on the Fantasy- those shoes are a tough act to follow!

And $4 glasses of wine ALWAYS improves my mood!

Me too, as long as they taste great- and they did!

WORK is a 4-letter expletive for me.

I am very sorry! I would be willing to give you vocabulary tutoring anytime-

I can totally vouch for you!

Thanks!





I thought that particular flavor only came in sandwich form. And everyone would have to take a bite.

At least it wouldn't be purple- usually.

And I am DEFINITELY not having any BITE!


I see Timmy was back to his adventurous self with his choice of flavors!

LOL- you noticed! Umm...Uhhh...I'l have Banilla with Spwinkles pwease...

You already gave us a hint, and we can see the color.

There was a hint??? What was it? I really want a hint!

Actually, he had cherry he thinks. Followed by "I dunno!" So there ya go- mystery unsolved-


There you go! Next time hit the wine bar before you go biking.

So now you're trying to get me killed?? Geez! That seems a little harsh for just a little man-bashing!

On second thought, maybe that's not a good idea.
Thank you!

Still, I'm impressed you went for ice cream...not lunch/snacks...or a cocktail!

Many snacks and cocktails followed, I can assure you!

I didn't know about the tokens...we just waited in line I'll have to remember that.

Yes- I learned that reading EVERY TR WITH A GGB BIKE RIDE IN IT FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS, PODS! Oops- sorry, I mean, yea, that's a good tip for next time, huh Cynthia?!

UGH riding back up in the afternoon crowds. Just UGH. I can't imagine running it later in the day, more or less biking it from the ferry building. It seems to me that when we did it, maybe it wasn't quite as crowded tourist wise? Or maybe it was a weekday, I have no idea.

This was a Thursday, August 15th- I think the America's Cup was making it more crowded.

I bet we don't get upgraded. I am thinking 2 years in a row of that and we used up all our Kimpton Reward pixie dust. LOL! Fingers crossed though. Actually fingers crossed we have a babysitter..but that's another story entirely.
ALL POSITIVE THOUGHTS! Especially for the babysitter-

That's my girl!!

So the moral of your update is - if ice cream doesn't make everything better, wine will!

YES!!! I am so glad we have all learned something here today, aren't you?

I love this TR report!
Thanks Darlin! I really need to visit yours- it's been a while, I'm sorry!

Aww...that's not coincidence- that's how he is. He was really sorry, even if he wasn't saying it yet.

BTW, on our trip, we will be taking the ferry TO and from Sausalito.
well aren't YOU the smart one!!

I'm sorry, babe- what about that ice cream we had at Club 33? Was that an issue afterwards?

Wine on the other hand! That will improve my mood post haste!
Truth be told- ice cream is very nice and all, and that particular ice cream was spectacular....but it's the wine that really adjusted my attitude!

Yup- it's true.

I used a word that begins with an f for the first missing word and one that begins with an s for the second.

Very good choices! Excellent!!

Ice cream is a cure all around here too. And wine. Wine fixes a lot. Wine last night fixed the fact that I'm on Day 7 of a 10 day solo parenting gig. Today a trip to Trader Joes with my bestie will fix Day 8. It's the simple things.

So glad simple things work, aren't you? Is M back now?

Sausalito looks beautiful though. We haven't been to Nor Cal in ages, well I haven't, looks like I need a trip back minus any bike riding unless they have a lazy girls bike route.
Yes- there's a lazy girl ride- it's ALONG THE FREAKIN BEACH!!!!!

Of course! I want to go back to nearly every place I have been, but San Francisco is a very, VERY special place-

And thanks for the kind words- it really means alot- nice to meet you!

My sons would have made some serious dents in the taco bar! What a great happy hour, especially with the view you had. I, so seriously, have got to visit San Francisco. What a beautiful place.

Your Sally Rand drink didn't make you want to get up with your feathered fans & dance? That would have been such a lovely picture!

Oh, Ellen, the pictures from your hotel are making me SOOOOO homesick. UGH! I mean, I used to do a lot of cursing commuting over that bridge, but now I totally miss it.

I would have totally done the same thing and made a meal out of that happy hour. It looked really good, and you certainly save a lot of money passing on a dinner out in SF once in a while! I love the honor bar! Hmm - I am seriously going to have to check into this hotel as I don't know where we will be staying in July.

I'm glad you and Pods were able to get out and have a couple of drinks and a little fun after what was clearly a rather rough vacation day.

I am even more glad that I somehow managed to check your report before you had posted 4 or 5 new updates so that I could actually remember on what I was commenting for a change!

Your evening worked out very nicely! I'm glad you could save a couple bucks on dinner, by using the club level for tacos, that's always a bonus, especially if you didn't have a special place planned and I'm sure the wine honor bar helped you to be able to speak to them again after the day that you had!

What you did for the honor bar was help yourself (wow, those were some up to the tippy top glasses of wine that were poured, lol!) and then mark it on a card with your room number to put in a box.
Uh, yeah, I marked my card...Sure...

I'm sure all those cocktails helped with the attitude adjustment!

Darn, I'm getting a little blue question mark where some photos should be.

Alcohol. The bonding agent that keeps great couples together. Been there, done that.

The Happy Hour spread looks fantastic. Good idea saving a little money and letting the boys pig out there. Dessert looks good too.

The view and sunset are gorgeous.

My sons definitely made serious dents! They were up and back several times.

LOL!! You know who Sally Rand is!! I wonder if MY Sally Rand knows- she would get a kick out of it- probably do her own fan dance, lol!

It was a great happy hour every night- I read a lot of reviews in the two years leading up to it- it was VERY hard to find ones about that RC that were more specific than- Get it, it's great! I saw many reviews that said this was one of the best, if not THE best, RC in the Hyatt chain. I also saw many people disputing whether or not to book it in such a foodie city- why would you want to waste your time on tacos when all of SF was just outside? At $75/day, I would have had a hard time justifying it- at $25, it was a no-brainer. And if it had been $50, like it was when I originally booked, it would have been worth that, too.

My poor TA, though- she booked it, then I saw a better rate, so she rebooked it, and then they wouldn't give her a commission! What up with THAT, Hyatt??? I sure hope that doesn't happen to ME as a Travel Agent!


I'm glad you and Pods were able to get out and have a couple of drinks and a little fun after what was clearly a rather rough vacation day.

It was VERY MUCH needed!

I am even more glad that I somehow managed to check your report before you had posted 4 or 5 new updates so that I could actually remember on what I was commenting for a change!

Well, we DID want to go to Pier 23- and I am pretty sad we didn't eat anything there, only drank. It was Diners Drive Ins and dives- which I watched pretty frequently before we went, because Guy Feuri goes to San Fran alot on that show. It looked like they had some yummy stuff there!

Yes, a MUCH better day overall because of how it ended. I don't know if you saw above in another response, but that RC space was a rotating restaurant for years- definitely a coveted view!

LOL!!! Don't worry- I am sure when we filled out the card at the end our math was a little fuzzy- how many glasses and beers? Let's round down to 4!

Beautiful view!

Definitely- it used to be their rotating restaurant- people are pretty po'd they can't get up there anymore unless they book a room with RC. I think it was a big special occasion restaurant-

Mmmmm...meat and cheese. Really, do you need anything else?

Well I do, but I see your point.

At this point he's thinking, "Why did you make me do all that biking? I could have been here THIS WHOLE TIME!"

ROTFLMAO!!! Seriously!!


Guess you had to be there.

You know, the typical trick where you pick a card, and he magically produces said card at the end to shock and dazzle you- right before he showed us how he did it because he didn't want us to feel like he was deceiving us.

I'm sure all those cocktails helped with the attitude adjustment!
Works WAAAAY better than deep breathing, counting to 10, or Yoga!
