Ok, so despite my all my good intentions, I actually didn't make it to the "good Samaritan" portion of the San Francisco Food Bloggers Food Bank Day last Saturday.
But I did make it to the after party!
Yield Wine Bar is in a part of San Francisco that I didn't even know existed- even though I drive by it twice a day. Well, that might be a little too strong- I thought that Dogpatch was just full of warehouses where I would go to Sally Spicer trunk shows and buy pretty purses for people on my Christmas List. Well, now that the N-Judah is going to Dogpatch, you should as well, and check out Yield. Yield is so casual and familiar- you almost feel like you are in someone's SOMA loft...and that they have quite a bit of wine...and big parties...with lots of people who drink. I like the way the bigger space is divided up as well- couches in one room, and high tables spaced a bit apart in the other. There almost looks like there would be space for dancing- which happens frequently after consuming wine in SOMA lofts.
Yield also might have felt familiar because of the cool people I was meeting and seeing there. I met Tea, who I have already linked to on my blog- and two cool new people as well. Sean from Hedonia has just had the one-year anniversary of his blog. And I always love people who have left the east-coast (Schenectady, and has spent a lot of time in Rhode Island) for the warmer climates of California. I also met Jen from Life Begins at 30. Since that is the age I will be turning this year (calm down, not till November...) I guess I best start reading away. Jen just had an awesome trip to Vietnam and we chatted about her recent dinner party where she fed 16 in her one bedroom apartment.
