Not only are their oysters affordable and good quality, their food is really good too. Nick got a cream of cauliflower soup and I got the dungeness crab quesadilla, which was the special of the day. These were both appetizer portions, but with two dozen oysters and their house-made bread, we were pleasantly full...though I could have eaten another quesadilla because it was so good. We were saving our stomachs for dinner because we had plans to go out to San Francisco for Chinese New Year dinner with my extended family. Our bill was way lower than we expected too! Before tip it was only $41 for all of those oysters plus food. Take that Bouchon! I think this may be our new favorite place to come eat oysters. It is well worth the trip. If it wasn't for Nick's gout, I would have order another dozen for dessert. Hehe.
After dinner we headed out to Mumm's winery to pick up some champagne for our upcoming weekend. Nick is taking me to stay at the Argonaut Hotel on Fisherman's wharf in San Francisco. I'm quite excited. I made a reservation for La Folie on Saturday night since Nick planned the hotel room. It was between La Folie and Acquerello, but I wanted French food now that we know how time consuming it is to make. We really wanted to go to Gary Danko because it was within walking distance of the hotel, but it was all booked for Valentine's. I was able to make a reservation there for Nick's birthday instead since it wasn't around any major holidays. Woopi! I better study up on my etiquette. Here are some pictures that I swiped off the internet. I will try to remember to take pictures myself this time, unlike in Monterey.

|I got this clutch to go with my silver Sex and the City shoes (the shoes are shown at the bottom of the post) that I got for a friend's wedding. I've been wearing the shoes more often and wanted a semi-casual clutch to go with them. This picture shows it as a light gray-silver, but it's more like a gunmetal color. It was really affordable from Zappos.com and the wristlet is detachable. Here is the link to it if anyone is interested in a good sized clutch that is not hard-cased. It also comes in black: Aldo Hasper. I have a silver clutch that matches perfectly with the shoes, but it is more formal and because of the hard-case nature of it, I can only fit my phone, credit cards, and chapstick in it.|
