Things I Love About SF!

There are certain things you see that just make you love your City. On my evening run, I checked out the new location of Off the Grid, the super cool, grassroots food truck meetup in Upper Haight. . This adorable pink, retro tricycle was parked right out front.

Chanel lips, drug store price

The Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss is the best beauty deal around. It's a knock off of the very popular, and very pricey Chanel Glossimer lip gloss. My favorite sun kissed, summer gloss is the #17 Shimmery Golden Beige. And at $14 per tube vs. $27 for the real deal, you can slather it on all summer! Yummy.

What's on repeat

I was transported back to high school when I heard the new Katy Perry album - Teenage Dream. It's what I would have listened to over and over, thinking of my crushes, how hard life is and how much I want to be a grown up.

Fast forward, I am grown up, smelling the cotton candy scented cover and listening on repeat.

Zero Zero

After all the hype of Pizzeria Picco in Larkspur, I was eagerly awaiting the SF outpost, Zero Zero opening up in SOMA in the former Azie space. I'm a thin crust pizza kind of gal, so I usually skip the Little Star or Zachary's type pizza and opt for Delfina or Amicis. Zero Zero sticks to the Neapolitan style in a warm, wood decorated space. The cute mural of Pinocchio upstairs lends a whimsical vibe. From the bar they have a impressive list of classic cocktails using a lot of gin and brown liquors. I stuck to the wine on tap, which was surprisingly smooth and fresh. And I always gravitate to wine that is served in a carafe.

As for the pizzas the clear winner is the King Arthur Supreme of Neapolitan pizza, the Castro which includes Sopressata, House Made Sausage, Tomato Sauce,
Mozzarella, and Basil on a thin slightly burned, brick oven crust. The list of pizzas is concise and includes a few SF neighborhoods like Mission and Geary as well as the classics like Margherita and Marinara.

Even after totally indulging on the pizzas, I couldn't pass up the build your own ice cream sundaes. The waitress presented a mini menu and a golf pencil to pick the following options.
1) Choose an Ice Cream - Straus Creamery
2) Pick a Base - brownies, waffle and more
3) Pile on the Toppings - nuts, pie crumble, caramel, AND MORE

The space is gorgeous and spacious, so drop in with ressies or without. You'll probably get seated without much wait.
