Initially, however, I was upset.
Luckily, this all changed on Friday. I still don't know what Mr. Monkey was planning to do if I were still going to trial.
"What? Who's going with you? Because you know I'm finishing up my trial brief, motions in limine, and examinations this weekend, right?"
"Umm...oh yeah. Uh oh."
I guess we'll never know!
After all of our great priceline and Hotwire experiences, it seemed we were due for a not-so-great room. Here's our $57 hotel (regular price $130 -- insane). Totally not what BetterBidding predicted for us. Major boo.
We walked a couple blocks and decided to ride a cable car.
We survived our harrowing ride to Hyde and Beach and got into tourist mode.
Most people go to Ghirardelli Square for chocolate. I go for Kara's Cupcakes.
Passion Fruit -- vanilla cupcake with passion fruit filling and vanilla buttercream.
Fleur de Sel -- chocolate cupcake with caramel filling, ganache frosting, and fleur de sel. Too much for my allergic-to-chocolate self, so Mr. Monkey went to town.
Kara's Karrot -- moist carrot cupcake with a silky soft cream cheese frosting.
We walked down the historic (and apparently dangerous) pier.
Views of the mainland.
Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.
Tooling around Fisherman's Wharf.
Then it was time to get ready for dinner. That's Part II.
And it truly deserves its own post.
But, until then, more pics of Part I here.
