Foodbuzz knows how to throw a party!

The Gala dinner last night was stellar. It was held in the Ferry Building and was a gorgeous location!

All of the wine was Bonny Doon and most of it was fabulous.

There were passed hors d’oeurves that were fabulous. These little polenta thingies were melt in your mouth delicious! So buttery!

A sign that a good night is coming?

Yep, 5 wine glasses. And we were fortunate enough to have empty seats on either side of us and a very generous (and fabulous) server that hooked us up with double the wine for our “friends” in those seats! You do the math.

The food was amazing. The service was fantastic. I loved the bartenders, the waiters, everyone! Thank you so much, Foodbuzz! This weekend was such a treat!

Sufficiently stuffed, we tromped our way up Market street and eventually hailed a cab back to the hotel and saddled up in The Starlight Room for cocktails.

It’s my mom’s birthday today so we totally took advantage of that as soon as the clocks hit midnight!
