Rolling Over The Hump

Happiest of birthdays to Taylor! We celebrated the day in a very San Franciscan manner: bottomless mimosas and Dolores Park.

Mimosas in the morning always seems like a great idea until you are already hungover at 1pm. Good news is that did not happen this time! We saw the bottom of our glasses often due to slow pours throughout brunch, which ended up having me feel great the whole day.

With a party of over 15, it was hard to find a place to fit all of us. I called a bunch of places the week before to try to get a reservation and Aliment was able to house us on their mezzanine.

Yay for all the people who were able to make it out! It was a treat to meet new people and also celebrate with my loved ones.

To show you a bit of what we consumed…

A continental breakfast with assorted cheeses, salumi, granola and a poached egg.

The dish I ordered was the braised short rib hash with potatoes, greens and slow cooked eggs.

Someone pointed out that I always get the same kind of food for brunch, savory and soft. Maybe it is because I am a nutrition student but I cannot help but notice the subconscious perfect combination of carbs, proteins & fats in slow cooked meat with starchy potatoes and a yolky egg.

I also might have snuck a bite of the decadent sour flour french toast with berry compote and barrel aged syrup. Just the word berry and compote in the same sentence stimulates my saliva glands.

(now that is a good alliteration train!)

Happy birthday Taylie!

Signed, Abs and I.

The only two girls who were not white (well, me 1/2) at the table, not including you.

Annnnnnnd then the football got stuck in the tree at Dolores. This is my roommates’ way of attempting to fix the problem. It took five people to finally get it out, it was hard for me to not pull out the old how many idiots does it take… joke.

PS: If anyone can beat my score on Flappy Bird, then I will grant you one wish of your choice. Sky is the limit.

(incase you do not know what Flappy Bird is)

How are you celebrating your birthday this year? I need some ideas to steal.

Are you into Flappy Bird? I also just downloaded Clash of Clans from a recommendation. I am not sure how I feel about this game yet, but my friend’s fiancé pulled a sweatpants and ribs Friday night for this game so I am giving it a chance.

  1. Oh wow that brunch is making this piece of toast I’m eating right now look super lame. I’ve never heard of Flappy Bird but I don’t usually play games like that….like Candy Crush…I’ve never played it. Is that so weird? Sometimes I feel weird admitting it but it’s true!

  2. One of your friends looks so much like someone I know. It took me a minute to realise that it wasnt her! Looks like a great birthday. I have not flappy before, but instead I play whatever my son wants to download, normally Angry Birds!

  3. Nope, haven’t tried flappy bird. Clash of Clans, I’ve heard and have a bunch of them hooked onto it, including my little one who would give me instructions before he left to school to collect coins. That is all I know about the game..:).
    That is some fancy food right there. Enjoy girl.
    You know what, last bday, my friends and I went to Napa for the weekend and had a blast. Then again, that’s for those who want to go and take a break from mommy duty, might be a little drab for you..:).

  4. What a wonderfully fun way to celebrate a special birthday! From mimosas to a lost football … you kinda covered all the bases! 😀 ~Shelley

  5. Dolores Park is my favorite place to be on a Saturday – it’s even the background of my phone! I’ve never been to Aliment, but that French toast has convinced me to give it a shot. Did you get Bi-Rite too? I don’t know if it’ll cure a hangover, but it sure is delicious!
