After the official Foodbuzz festivities were over, many of us still had time in San Francisco before our flights. I only had a few hours, but I put them to good use.
Well, sort of the daylight. It was pretty rainy and gloomy. I think San Francisco was crying because we were leaving.
That umbrella still has the tag on it because I had just purchased it!
Unfortunately, I hadn’t bought it before the downpour in which I got drenched that morning. Thanks to Amanda and Andy for letting me dry off with their hairdryer! 🙂
We all made the most of the situation. Because, you know, anything that can pass as an excuse for a photo is okay by bloggers.
We’re all such hams. I love it.
We went in and checked out a bunch of the shops, many of which had been represented at the Taste Pavilion.
But the best was when I happened upon this place… Beekind.
A honey stand!
The guys that worked here were so nice and informative. They really knew their stuff.
We were led through a tasting, during which I tried a few but absolutely fell in love with the Chai High Infusion Honey. Yes, you read that correctly.
I got some to go, so you’ll be seeing it soon on KWH! I also picked up a honey-sweetened almond coconut truffle (to die for) and a honey taffy (also to die for). Both went unpictured, but please trust me on their amazingness.
Yes, I know that’s not a word.
Laura and Raya also picked up some vegan, organic donuts, but I just didn’t feel like eating at the time, so I didn’t get anything. They both offered me tastes, though, and I really enjoyed them. I’m not a big donut fan (too sweet and too greasy), but these were neither overly sweet nor were they at all greasy. That’s my kind of donut.
The best part of the day was when the rain went away and we caught this:
I felt so, so lucky in that moment.
I mean, seriously. What a wonderful life I lead.
On that perfect ending note, I said goodbye to my roommates…
…and goodbye to San Francisco…
… and I was off!
A big THANK YOU to Foodbuzz for hosting this amazing, amazing festival. It was one of the best weekends of my life!
