I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!
I decided to come back to Vegas a little early.
I had plenty of time while I was in the Bay Area
to check out a few places I had been wanting to
experience. The weather was really nice while
I was in town, so I tried to fit in as
much as I could.
I went to that new restaurant I was blogging about,
American Cupcake in San Francisco. It was pretty great.
Definitely a place you can only find in a big city
