thursday was chris’ birthday, and so he planned a pub crawl for saturday to celebrate. the weather was foggy and overcast, but that didn’t stop us! first stop was alembic, on haight street. i had heard of this bar about a year or so ago, but i hadn’t made it there. saturday was the day, and alembic did not disappoint. great atmosphere, cool interior, and delicious drinks made for a great first stop!
this is not it (that was chris’ drink), but i got a drink called bees knees–gin, lavender honey, and lemon juice. so delicious!
next stop was magnolia pub & brewery, where we enjoyed beer and some french fries. sara and i discussed sewing machines and affective filters, while everyone chatted most likely about more normal things.
next stop, toronado, a bar in san francisco known for it’s bajillion beers on tap. okay, so maybe bajillion is over-exaggerating, but there’s still of draft beers. after toronado we had drinks at elbo room, famous to us for their photobooth. more chit-chatting, more people, more fun. after elbo room it was definitely time for dinner, so we went and grabbed some tacos at a nearby taqueria, where chris got to enjoy a birthday cupcake, courtesy of annie.
after dinner, before parting ways we decided that ice cream sounded delicious, so off to bi-rite we went!
a tasty way to end our pub crawl adventure. it was a fantastic day of drinks, friends and fun. thanks, chris, for organizing the outing!
