Bay Area Blogger Meet-up

Courtney, of Pancakes & Postcards, organized a meet-up for San Francisco Bay Area bloggers this past weekend. Most of the bloggers consisted of either running focused blogs or eating; both things I love to do (one more than the other :-P).

Saturday early afternoon, we all gathered at the Sports Basement in the Presidio. Sports Basement was awesome, they provided a great NYC loft style gathering area, food, beer and a 10% discount for shopping; which I took advantage of.

I met a few faces I had stalked on Twitter for some time and a few brand new people. There is such an energy I get from meeting inspiring people.

Saturday also happened to be Fleet Week. During our swapping of stories, we could hear and see the planes in the airshow from our vantage spot in Sports Basement. The urge finally overcame us and we took our meet-up outside to Crissy Field to watch the spectacle. It was a gorgeous day in the city.

The airshow was fantastic. With the boats in the background, the Golden Gate Bridge standing gaurd; just breathtaking. A crazy United/Continetal jumbo jet was even partaking. It flew so low to the bridge. Soon the Blue Angels took the stage and amazed us with their insane manuevers.

I never tire of the city, or my friends, or meeting new friends. San Francisco is really a cornocopia of awesomeness.


  1. Your pics are SO COOL! Man, my crappy phone didn't get anything this nice. Love it!! It was so good seeing you yesterday & I look forward to seeing you AGAIN tomorrow!

  2. Looks like a great time (and a great spread from SB)! So sad I ended up not able to make it. We got a little Blue Angels action out in the mission, but nothing like that.

  3. Blogging, eating, sports basement, running, and FAST PLANES! Dang, what a Saturday! Looks like you all had a blast!

  4. So glad to see you again! Thanks for sharing your photos and looking forward to Sunday!!!
