A Little Weekend Fun

Gentle Friends,  over the weekend we made a trip across the City to visit China Town and I took some snaps...

 ... parking in the Powell Street Garage we walked up to the Dragon Gate entrance to China Town...

... looking down Grant Street ...

.... more Grant Street.... 

... lots of shops and places to buy geegaws and trinkets....

 ... a shot of the Asian Mural on Commercial and Grant.....


... there are lots of SF things to look at and or take home.....

 ... walking out of China Town this is the back side of the Dragon Gate...

 ... we decided to have some lunch and headed here to Cafe de la Presse... a great restaurant down on Union Square...


... a shot of the bar...  I'm not sure what was going on at that other table on the left but look at the girl's expression........


 ... we got sat and ordered some drinks... Rico got his usual coke and I got a Bloody Mary.....

... we both ordered Croque Monsieur's mine I had with fries and ...

 .... Rico had a salad....

UPDATE:  I didn't even think of it when I was writing this Post...... but the reason we didn't have lunch in China Town was we already had plans to go out to dinner with some friends for Chineses in the evening... we went to Alice's... you can click the highlit Alice's and it will take you back to my Post from 2016 about this super restaurant we really like in our neighborhood.

Oh, you guys? You went to China Town and then went to a French restaurant! Either way the food looked good. You two are so cosmopolitan. Thanks for sharing another outing.

That looks like a wonderful day to visit that part of time. I think I need to make a visit to our International District soon. You put me in the mood!
