My Birthday Weekend

I was lucky enough to be given the gift of a weekend at Millennium Towers in San Francisco.  The gift was from my parents and was a girl trip for me and my mom.  I knew that the apartment on the 47th floor would be nice, but I had no idea how nice it would be.  I guess the asking price of $2,000,000 should have been a clue. Here are a few pictures around the place.

And here are a couple of shots of the views.

My diet started to go out the window on Friday night when we went downstairs and had dinner at RN74.  The dinner was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was rocking.  The food got even more scrumptious on Saturday night at Restaurant Gary Danko.  Sometimes it is all about who you know, and we are lucky to know Greg, chef Gary's partner.  He made the meal so special.  We started with champagne (and ended with champagne now that I think about it), we were brought caviar, and a full birthday cake.  I think he was trying to kill us with rich food.  I cannot speak highly enough of the restaurant, its staff, and Greg in particular.  

Saturday also saw us at the Ferry Building for Farmer's Market.  I have never seen a Farmer's Market that size and we found some pretty wonderful fresh produce. 

I really couldn't have asked for a more spectacular birthday.  Thanks to everyone who made it possible and to everyone who sent me birthday wishes! Now back to the diet, Ugh...
