How I spent Halloween in 200* words or less:

20121101 182245 Giants Parade!!

Walked from Krizia’s apartment to my coworker’s apartment; saw a toilet full of candy.

Passed a flower shop that was about to toss all these beautiful roses; saved them from the trash!

And Brian Wilson (our closer of previous seasons) took the parade by cable car. He looks like a smurf with his teal sweater and huge black beard.

Enjoyed a swordfish and braised cherry tomato lunch with my work team at 54 Mint (16 Mint Plaza, San Francisco).

Somehow (despite the riot-size crowds?!!??) I managed to snag a seat on Caltrain. I immediately fell asleep and woke up just in time to get off the train in Palo Alto.

Kyle and I had a quick dinner at Slider Bar (324 University Avenue, Palo Alto).

We split a basket of sweet potato fries and five sliders. Look at all the peppers on the 3 Alarm slider – habanero pepper jam, serrano chilies, and pickled jalapeños!

Unpictured: X Factor, Toddlers & Tiaras, cookie dough. What a night!

Question: How did you spend your Halloween? Hope everyone stayed safe, especially you, Nicole!

  2. It looks like you had an awesome Halloween! How fun that you were able to go to the Parade– it was crazy that morning! I can’t believe that toilet full of candy either– kindaaa creepy! But those roses are so pretty! Def a score for you! I’ve been wanting to try 54 MInt so I’m glad to hear it was good! It’s on my SF Must-Eat list!
