Espetus Churrascaria – San Mateo, CA

IMG_0031

For Alex’s 25th Birthday, we went to Espetus Churrascaria for dinner. EJ made reservations two weeks before for 5:30pm on a Thursday night. Seems early, but we work night shift, so it worked out perfectly with our schedules. This also seemed like a good time because when 6:30pm hit, a rush of people came in. I’m sure the rush will be worse on a weekend.

One of the first reservations I made when we planned our trip was a luau. I already knew I wanted to go to a luau while we were there, but when I asked EJ what he wanted to do on our actual anniversary, he said that he wanted to celebrate at a luau. So I booked it for the night of our two year anniversary!

Goofy’s Kitchen has a larger variety of buffet, but Plaza Inn had more characters, is cheaper, and is located inside the park. I love both, but I thought Plaza Inn was more convenient for us that weekend. Continue reading

This morning, Sandy (my coworker) and I decided last minute to eat out for breakfast. We used to do this regularly before we got married, but now it’s just left to spontaneous urges. I told her I wanted to try the noodle place she took our other coworker to last time. So, off to Chinatown we went!

Bay Area Sites and Treats!

The Kitchen Sink from SF Creamery in Walnut Creek, CA

With many of our friends and family flying in next week, they’ve been asking what there is to do while they’re here. I thought I would just compile a generic list for everyone. Whether you’re a local, have visited here many times, or are a first-time Bay Area visitor, I’m sure everyone will be able to find something on this list to try out. Enjoy!
