5 Days in San Francisco
I just spent 5 days living the life in San Francisco.
I went to San Fran for my annual scientific conference and spent some time with my science hat on, but was also fortunate to catch up with friends and try to make a dent in all things wonderful that San Fran has to offer.
I stayed in North Beach with my buddy A, who I worked with at the National Institute on Drug Abuse. I saw her in January when I was interviewing in Palo Alto and even though it was late she brought me up to her rooftop deck to show me what was beautiful at night but was even more spectacular during the day.
She was a fabulous host and beyond taking me to great restaurants (I must go back to Park Tavern, and you should definitely check it out, too. I literally started to salivate just looking up that link), she did a great job of making sure I saw some great views of this gorgeous town.
I also spent some time exploring Sausalito, which was incredibly beautiful.
I also caught up with a college friend over coffee, had some amazing duck tacos at Mamacita, ate incredible sushi near fisherman’s wharf and of course got a Ghiradelli dark chocolate sundae.
In all, I was able to present my work, learn from others, eat great food and spend time with some great people. Cheers to next year.
