Uncle Boy’s San Francisco

 

While out for a day in San Francisco, my boyfriend Mac and I were just leaving Golden Gate Park in search of food. It was around 2 o’clock and we were STARVING. We don’t know where anything is in the city quite yet, so I pulled up Yelp. I wanted the closest and most decent looking place we could find. I was extremely hangry and needed something to hit the spot. We both could eat burgers every day of our lives so we gravitated towards the Yelp on Uncle Boy’s Burgers. After clicking through a few photos I was sold. They had me at onion rings. The place is a tiny hole in the wall in the Richmond district. The seating area, register, kitchen and storage are literally all in the same room. I was kind of confused coming in because there was no menu on the wall but we were immediately handed a menu and were assisted by the guys working. I ordered the “Hot Mess” burger, which had tons of jalepenos, bacon, cheddar cheese, and “hot mess sauce”. Mac ordered the “Italian Stallion” burger which came with jack cheese, mozzarella sticks, and marinara sauce. We also got onion rings and french fries. We’ve both had a lot of burgers but this place is definitely in our top five favorite places. Seriously, click on that picture, they look amazing. Both burgers were so good we finished them entirely (they were huge too!). Mac’s burger seemed so weird but the mozzarella sticks were amazing on the burger. The onion rings were probably the best I’ve had in a really long time. They weren’t pulled out of the freezer and just thrown in the frier either (which I’m totally not against. Those are great too) . I saw them flouring fresh onions and breading them at the counter. The food was all super good and I cannot wait to go back. Here’s the link to their Yelp: Uncle Boy’s yelp . Don’t let one bad review fool you with anywhere though. Some of the best places I go have the worst reviews.

Also check out their Instagram for some good foodie pics. If this doesn’t make you wanna go, I don’t know what will! Uncle Boy’s Insta

Oscar de la Renta Exhibit

I recently made a trip to the De Young museum in San Francisco to see the Oscar de la Renta exhibit. If you’re planning on going to see it as well, my advice is to get your tickets online and go early! Get the first available time slot that works for you. The place fills up very fast. My boyfriend and I went at 10:30 and were grouped in with a large community of senior citizens and oddly enough a preschool class. You get a better chance of taking good photos when their isn’t floral perfume clouds in your personal space and a chance of knocking over a child. Anyways, the dresses! The gowns were to die for. The detail in each dress was so mesmerizing you could stare at them for hours. I wanted to touch them all even though that is like the only rule they have (That, and flash photography). The exhibit takes you on a walk through Oscar de la Renta’s life and career. The red carpet dresses were my favorite part. I can remember seeing all of them on tv and to see them in person was amazing. If you love fashion this is a must see! And it makes for a beautiful day in Golden Gate Park 🙂

Milk & Wood

IMG_4894IMG_4900I first discovered Milk & Wood from an Instagram post and had to check it out! They are located in downtown San Jose in the SOFA Marketplace. The ice cream (I think that’s what it is. Milk? lol) bars come in a variety of flavors and have tons of toppings to choose from. My boyfriend Mac and I stopped by Milk & Wood before going to a Sharks game and I was really happy with the place. I got a green tea pop that had a Kit-Kat inside the middle (sounds weird but super good) with milk chocolate and white chocolate drizzle, and almonds and fruity pebbles on top. Mac got a Reese’s peanut butter pop with the same chocolate drizzle, and butterfingers and chocolate chips on top. We both LOVED them. They’re super creamy and sweet and I loved the unique flavors. I already can’t wait to go again and try the other flavors! Check out their instagram posts and you will probably be headed their way sooner than later! Milk&Wood Insta!
