San Francisco | Beautiful Birthday Girl Celebrates at Delarosa

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

It has been our tradition since we became BFFs over a decade ago to spoil each other rotten on our birthdays. In all reality, BFF spoils me rotten on any given day by always giving me treats, lunches and all the cutest stuff in this world whenever we see other.

It was my turn to spoil her on her birthday. Per our birthday tradition, we take the afternoon off and spend the day in the City (which is where we both work). 

This year the birthday lunch venue was at Delarosa. Located in Yerba Buena Lane in Downtown SF, a pretty alley that leads to museums, eateries and Yerba BuenaGardens, it was a perfectly bright and sunny spot to imbibe and ravish all the delicious little plates that we ordered.  

What did we not order?! We had:
  1. Dungeness crab arancini, calabrese aioli 11
  2. Mussels, white wine, tomato, sofrito 9
  3. Burrata bruschetta, hazelnut & honey 8
  4. Heirloom tomato panzanella, cucumber, red onion & fennel
We imbibed a couple of glasses of Aperol Spritz aperol, seltzer, orange 9 (for the birthday girl) and bubblies for me.

(One more picture of the Dungeness Arancini Balls -- so yummy!)
This year we broke away from tradition. Year after year, we walk to the Ferry Building (aka BFF HQ) after lunch to spend the rest of the afternoon there sipping coffee while enjoying the view of the bay. 

We chose to walk the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art instead for coffee, cake and culture. (This is now our second BFF HQ since I have become a member.)

Here is the birthday girl!
We sat in the outdoor patio of SFMOMA and continued to celebrate over coffee and Princess cake.  It was such a gorgeous day. I look forward to BFF ‘s birthday because I enjoy it as much (if not more!). I am truly blessed to have Heather as my  best friend for life. To those of us who know her, she is beautiful, amazing and strong. God has given me the present of this amazing and kind woman when He put her in this world. 

I am looking forward to many more years of fun birthday celebrations with her! It will be interesting what fun birthday adventure we will come up with when we turn 70 years old – which is quite a very long time from now!

Happy Birthday, BFF! xoxo
