Cabernet and Champagne Cupcakes

It all started with a soy latte from Blue Bottle Coffee Co. in San Francisco.

It ended with an organic-amazingness dinner at The Plant in San Francisco.

And in the middle were good people, wine, cupcakes, and good-times all around.

Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Pink champagne cupcakes, chocolate on chocolate, snickerdoodle cake with snickerdoodle frosting. Can we say, Delicious? Ooooh yes we can.

Anne and I attended a LivingSocial wine tasting event. Such a great deal! Included in a low, low price was transportation from San Francisco to Napa (1 hour), wine tasting at two wineries, lunch, cupcake tasting, relaxation, good company, and transportation back to the City.

After our long day, Anne and I decided to grab some nourishing food, and lots of water, at The Plant. Expensive but delicious. And I’m planning on recreating some of their menu items. 😉 Get excited.

Olive oil, vinegar, and homemade wheat bread
My dish of the Ginger Miso Quinoa Bowl with tofu. Tangy and delicious with lots of veggies.
Anne’s Plant Burger: vegan burger made from lentils, mushrooms, cashews, beets, and bulghar. Absolutely wonderful.

 

There’s no time like the present to live your life. This was such a wonderful experience and definitely needed. I love getting out and exploring new places, meeting new people, and just having a good, safe, time.

Have you ever attended an event with a social group, such as Groupon or LivingSocial or even Meetup.com? How’d it go? Personally, I LOVE using these groups as a resource. Meetup.com has introduced me to some pretty awesome people.

Have you ever had a champagne Cupcake? omg so good!
