You have to go here & crossing stuff off our bucket list
The other day I was talking to our neighbor (Coco’s mom) about our move. She works for Google and is hoping to transfer to Europe soon. I mentioned that I’ve been feeling like I haven’t been living since we found out about our relocation.
We agreed that our excitement about moving forward is making it difficult to live & enjoy each day. It was so refreshing to chat with someone who’s experiencing the same as me at the same time.
So instead of making small repairs, taking down the TV’s & packing, Mike and I decided to live a little and cross a few things we never got around to off our Bay Area bucket list.
Since we moved here almost 2 years ago, we saw a Benihana’s in Millbrae right next to SFO and Mike has always wanted to take me there. Yesterday, we found one a little closer in Cupertino. And guess what, dang Siri got us lost. #filethatunderthingsicantmakeup
We both love teppanyaki so this place was perfect! We enjoyed the food and agreed, dining here is an experience.
After lunch we hit up Philz Coffee since it’s highly recommended by everyone, it seems.
Maika made our coffee and was so excited when we told her it was our first time at Philz you’d think she owned the joint.
Every cup of coffee is made to order right in front of you. They even freshly grind the coffee beans. I guess you could say we’re about the experience today!
I asked what the most popular blend was and I think she said Tesora. (Maika correct me if I’m wrong) She said it was the first blend Phil used to create his brand and it’s a medium blend.
She added vanilla & soy for me and made sure I was satisfied before she was done. Now that’s excellent custom-er service! <-sorry, I had to go there!
Mike had the Turkish blend with whole milk & sugar and we both deemed his the winner of the two.
You guys have to go to Philz if you’re near one! And if you do, tell me about it so I can congratulate you on making great life decisions.
We sat our their patio and sipped our coffee while taking our experience all in.
Then we hit the road to the Facebook Headquarters. They changed their address from Willow Road to 1 Hacker Way and I had to take a picture with the latest & greatest improvements before we leave. The nerd in me just couldn’t resist the latest upgrades.
Then Mike geeked out when we went to San Francisco Sports Cars to window shop. I’m pretty sure we couldn’t even afford to walk into this place.
He’s always wanted to check this place out, so why not.
You can buy a house or two for the price tag on one of these babies. Well here, it’d be more like a shack but you know.
Then the day got even better when we came home to an cool mail. My new Bulu Box came and no bills. Boom!
If you have one, what’s the last thing you crossed off your bucket list?
Coffee lovers, what’s your favorite coffee shop and/or brand?
We love Fabiano’s Coffee out of Fresno so much we buy 5 pounds at a time & have it shipped. And of course Starbucks and now Philz. I’ll have to see if there’s one in the Monterey area.
What is something you eat every day?
Bananas, I have one with breakfast every day.
