SF MoMa

 

The city

We walked to SF Moma and the sky was so pretty!

A few weekends back, my parents and our lovely neighbors drove up to the city to meet their daughter and her beaux for an outing and dinner at their house. She invited us up to explore SF Moma, which has only recently opened in May after their 3 year long closure due to renovations. I was pretty excited to see both the building and the artwork. Although my personal artistic preference runs more to the classics, I do always enjoy seeing what’s hot in the modern art world.

The museum design with crisp and clean, with beautiful white maple floors. We explored floors in groups of two or threes.  My dad and partnered up as we were both particularly interested in two exhibits: California and the West: a photography exhibit and the Pop, Minimal and Figurative Art. I love Andy Warhol, and Chuck Close’s portraits and so I was looking forward to seeing some of their work in person.

We ended up getting a snack halfway though in their Cafe 5 restaurant, and the coconut milk curry soup I had was delicious.

I think my absolute favorite exhibit that I saw that day was called Typeface Interface, and looked critically at the role graphic design and words have played in important communication tools like subway maps, band posters and ads. Their artist statement above describes it so much if you are up for a quick read.

Have you been to SF MoMa yet? Any exhibits you’d like to look at?

Sunsets, Sparklers and a Night in SF

A week ago Friday, a few of my friends helped me knock off another item on my 101 list. We gathered at my parents house, lit some sparklers and tried to draw out hearts, stars and names. We were more or less successful, but we also had a lot of fun!

We have another box of sparklers left so we will do them again sometime soon! There was lots of laughing during this photo shoot (that may have hindered our ability to take clear photos!), and it was a great evening overall.


 

From there we went up to the city and hit up the Starlight Room at the Drake Hotel. Annie’s friend Dereck is a manager there, and always makes us feel so welcomed. This was my second time there and I swear he is ruining all other clubs for me!

I know I had a busy but awesome weekend! How was everyone’s weekend?

Did you get to do some fun things but also take a break?

Wine Tasting in Napa

On Saturday, the Roomie, my brother, Alex and I drove up to Napa and enjoyed some wine tasting at two lovely vineyards. I had never been to Napa, so I was pretty excited to explore the area and see some new sites.

It was a cold and misty day, but that did not diminish our excitement or trip in anyway. It was a lovely drive, winding up through the City and I snapped a few photos to document the lovely day, as wine tasting was on my 101 in 1001 list. It has been so much fun to cross things off my bucket list!

We stopped for breakfast at this charming little red cafe, called Boon Fly Cafe, after which we enjoyed the first vineyard, William Hill. We tasted a few wines, and then wandered over to ZD Wines. It was a dark and gloomy day, so it was fun to sip some wines, sit indoors and chat away.

Today I ran a bunch of errands, and got in a bit of shopping with the Roomie & Grant. Last night, I  watched West Wing while cuddling with the pups. It was a busy weekend, but filled with fun things.

How was your weekend? What was your favorite thing you did all weekend? Have you even been wine tasting?

Love,
