The Return Pt. II

The next morning i was the first to wake up out. It wasn't even THAT early, probably around 8:30? Anyways, we were all excited to meet up with even more friends later that day at 2pm but we had no idea what to do other than to eat. So the first problem was transit. We really did not want to take the Muny or BART ( public transportation in the Bay area) but we had 6 people with us. Fortunately, the girl that slept over had a dentist appointment at noon. So she said she would leave for home now since she wanted to freshen up.

After every body showered and got dressed, the five us hopped into an Acura CL which seats four and headed toward Castro. Apparently Castro is the area in San Francisco that is really populated with gays. That really did not bother me though. What did bother me were the amount of street lights to get to such a close area. It probably took about 15 minutes to get to an area that was nearly 2 miles away. Now i can understand why people take public transportation up there. When we arrived, we were fortunate enough to find a parking spot within minutes. One of my friends then got a text from the girl that slept over that said her dentist appointment wasn't until next week. Too bad for her because she missed out one of the greatest meals i have ever had. The restaurant was called Tangerines and it is one of the brunch restaurants that you would see in a blog. The place was sized like a small bakery with maybe 15 tables for dining. I don't understand how but we got a table for 5 without even having to wait. We all ordered water and i know this may sound weird but the water up in Northern California tastes different! I heard that is has a better filtration system and that drinking from the sink is not as bad for you but aside from its cleanliness there was a hinge of fruit or something as an after taste. It was really weird but i got used to it fast. I ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict which is two poached eggs, smoked salmon, wheat toast and roasted potatoes plus a side salad for $9:50. This is not my photo but here is what it looks like (I had more potatoes):

  4. I was looking forward to hearing about a trip full of girls and parties and fun encounters but all you talk of is food!
