I was all about the acronyms this past weekend. Yesterday my boo and I had ourselves a little date. We went to a really nice place for really cheap – courtesy of Dine About Town (DaT). And then we strolled along halls filled with truly inspiring artwork (SFMOMA).
For lunch we went to Lark Creek and participated in ‘Dine About Town.” DaT is a special where certain restaurants offer a fixed price menu (lunch and dinner options) at a discounted rate. The appeal is that most of the restaurants on the list are pretty fancy and normally we would never go to Lark Creek for lunch on a Sunday but because it was only around $20 bucks a person for an AMAZING meal we did it. (Read more about DaT here).
So for lunch, we started out with a salad, perfectly dressed and lemonades – that came in slushy form!
Then we moved on to the burger. Lark Creek is one of many restaurants that claims to have the best burger in SF. And let me tell you – I’ve tried many of these places and Lark Creek’s burger is one of the best burgers I have ever had!
It was a steak burger (which made it super tender and juicy) topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, crispy onions and bbq sauce. It literally melted in your mouth, the bun was toasted and buttered and the bbq sauce complimented the steak perfectly. I would eat ten more right now and then go back for more tomorrow.
To settle our stomachs we walked down to SF Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). I had never been before (I know, I’m failing as an SF resident of 3 years now) and I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did. I studied abroad in Paris and after being there and traveling around Europe for six months, visiting art museum after art museum, I was kind of burnt out from art. But this was totally different. The art at SFMOMA is so unique and it felt so fresh and interesting. I love how modern art makes you think about and process what you are looking at, and how your reaction to the art is almost visceral. Here are some of my favorites.
I bought a print of this one, I really love the colors and lines.
This one was my favorite, Clifford Still. I wish there had been a print of this.
Happy Monday Friends!
