The weather has been beautiful and sunny all week, what a surprise for San Francisco. We've all been taking advantage of the sunshine and getting outside at lunchtime.

We visited Salumeria on 20th Street in the Mission a couple of times this week. The spring menu is fresh and anything you order is delicious! Besides the amazing food, I enjoyed the lively atmosphere of the outside patio.

My obsession with Salumeria's chopped salad has begun! Not to mention, the presentation of the salad is very appealing. 

On Tuesday we headed over to SoMa StrEat Food Park. It seemed everyone had the same idea because it was packed with people out enjoying the various foods. There was music playing, patio seating, and all-around great vibes. 

It was a special treat on Wednesday when Samantha brought the team a fresh salad and a chilled glass of Pinot Blanc Mendocino. We all ate and caught up with each other on various topics and future plans. 


The Big Vision

After an extremely busy start to the year that included two major events along with a trip to Columbus, Ohio, we took a day to catch our breath and update our yearly vision boards.

Here is a look at the process...

Danielle was a welcoming host in her brand new Napa home!

Just like at any SSP event, we were well fed.

Including yummy bread.

And good wine.

Getting into the zone with our boards.

Out with the old, in with the new!

We also paused for a small birthday celebration.

SSP is already rocking 2014! Now a more a more honed vision.

Thank you to Danielle and David for sharing their beautiful home with us.

Back to the City, safe and sound.

Until next time.

Getting Ready For ON 3RD!

We are in full swing on the details of our ON 3RD event happening on Tuesday, October 27.
The above photo shows the inside of the invite - letterpress printed by Dependable Letterpress.

Our event design is true to who we are - ON 3RD. We are artsy small businesses in a warehouse building in an industrial part of town - the Dogpatch. The event is not fussy and frilly. It has an industrial feel, with old-school elements.

Come by, meet the folks, be entertained, and support our businesses.

Shopping at the hardware store for decor? Who knew?

We have many wonderful sponsors for the event!

Supplies for our entertainment/decor - we won't tell......

And a sneak peak at the delicious candy flavors to sample from Poco Dolce.

Big Island Yummy

As any event planner will tell, eating a lot of hotel food gets a bit tiring. So after 10 days on the Big Island we found our way to GJ's Huli Chicken and Ribs...yummy. They also sell banana egg rolls that were to die for. Right next to their stand is a little farmers market that makes fruit smoothies.

Next time you are on the Big Island and you need some great food - check them out. They are located near the Kawaihae Harbor in Kamuela.
