Our trip to San Francisco was so much fun, really productive (and way too short!!!). I will be really honest; this trip was pretty much all work and less play. We had our live show at Cobb’s Comedy Club; but I also set up brand meetings with three of my favorites brands. So it was definitely time very well spent. I felt so guilty because on our last night (the night after our show and a full day of meetings), I was too tired to do anything – I opted to hibernate in my hotel room!
So yes – this was a true work trip, but we still did some fun things that were worthy of the blog. I am sharing everything we did (and what we ate) but I definitely wish it was a longer list. I’ve been to San Francisco quite a bit and always have the best time… there are so many fun neighborhoods (they are all so unique!) to explore and cool things to do. We didn’t really leave the Union Square area. That’s not because I didn’t want to but because we were working! I am saying this all as a caveat: I don’t want you to read the post and think “Wow she’s so boring, she definitely didn’t do Francisco right!!!”
We stayed at the Parc 55 Hotel for three nights, which was the perfect little home away from home.
Parc 55 generously gifted us a two night stay and then we each paid for a third night on our own. The hotel was in the perfect location – right in Union Square (across from the Nordstrom). I loved how easy it was to get around… the day after our show, I was able to walk to all of my meetings! The hotel also had a fantastic breakfast buffet in the morning and I loved the fitness center (for the first time in live show history, I worked out every day!)
I always unpack. Always!!! It makes the room feel like home.
(Also – because I know you guys well! The gold star sandals are old Valentino Red; bought on the Outnet a few years ago I did a deep dive for you guys and did find them in a size 7 here on Poshmark! The leather bag is AWAY. It is the best carry-on ever!)
I packed three books and did absolutely no reading while we were there, except a little bit on the plane. (Fashion Climbing is so good!!!) I also packed my Equilibria CBD. More on that here, in this post!
I loved the big comfy bed and the Parc 55 was so generous and sent up a bottle of wine and a fruit bowl! (My pajamas are J.Crew)
Our live show at Cobb’s Comedy Club went really, really well. We had a blast and this was our biggest meet & greet yet! I was totally fried by the end of the night but it was amazing. We had so much fun! I will also add that this was our 7th live show and seeing your name on a sign/promo material/anything NEVER gets old. I geeked out SO majorly when I saw our name up at Cobb’s!
The next day I was up and at them for meetings. I had Philz! It was delicious! But a real highlight for me was coffee + snacks at Mazarine. The toasts were delicious!
One of my favorite meals from the whole trip was tapas at Bellota. We went on our first night and it was absolutely delicious. A few highlights: they have this little cart with cheese and olives and meats that they roll around and you can order from (SO GOOD); the patatas bravas (always a fav anyway) ANIMAL style with prosciutto and pimento aioli (heaven), and of course the paella which I barely had room for. So, so insanely good. The space is beautiful, too!
My favorite drinks from the trip were at Cityscape! Cityscape is on top of the Hilton (across from the Parc55) and the views of the city are INSANE. I had a very delicious dirty martini here (and not pictured) we shared a fantastic cheese board!
