A visit to the Ferry Building in San Francisco.
After a long day of shooting yesterday, I didn’t wind up eating dinner until pretty late – 9:30 pm. I was already past the point of hunger, to where I had zero appetite, so I got salad. There was only a Caesar on the hotel lobby bar menu, but I chatted with my friendly server and arranged to have one made without cheese, more veggies/mixed greens, some balsamic vinegar, and grilled chicken.
It was okay; very over-dressed. I left a few soggy bites on the plate.
My company was stellar, though – blogger Chelsea and I managed to make some last-minute plans via twitter!
We’ve been blog buddies for a while now (remember when she sent me her homemade cranberry jam?) and it was so great to finally meet her in person. We could’ve chatted all night, seriously – it was like gettting together with an old friend who I’ve known for years.
I had most of today off from shooting so I took the train into the city to meet up with s’more new peeps, Janet of Pretty Green Girl and fellow actress/blog reader Erika.
We met up at the Ferry Building for an early lunch. There were so many options; Janet suggested Il Cane Rosso.
I shared the Marin Sun Farms Roast Beef Sandwich with lemon aioli and spicy pickled onions with her…
…plus the Cast Iron Roasted Baby Carrots Salad, which came with feta, walnuts, and caper vinaigrette
I love dining with food bloggers! I feel so normal.
Not surprisingly, delicious. A local/hormone-free meal too.
Here’s Erika, who got the warm egg salad
By the way, the weather couldn’t have been more different from yesterday’s chilly windfest. I was so happy to get to experience San Francisco in all its glory. Look at our gorgeous view!
We walked around the beautiful ferry building and looked at all the unique shops.
Lots of sampling…
Unfortunately, no tasty salted pig parts…
But more nibbles outside!
A bunch of produce/fruit tastings at the truly stunning farmer’s market….
…stellar dill pickles.
I was so grateful to meet and spend my free time with all these new friends – and it’s all because of “The Actor’s Diet!” Even our “Surrogate Valentine” shoot has the blog to thank – our Production Assistant, Serena, is a reader/fellow blogger.
Speaking of which, she is picking me up in 15 minutes and I should start getting ready!!!
An orange to snack on first:
Okay, I’m off! By the way, if anyone in the Mission area wants to be an extra in the film and see a free show tonight, come to Blue Six at 7pm tonight.
