September in San Francisco - Part 3

Hello Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I meant to wrap-up my September in San Francisco series last week, but got caught up with work and travel.  Let's finish posting about September so we can move on to October :)

On our last full day in San Francisco, we packed a lot in and rode the public transportation all around the city like locals!  It was awesome.  R. and I met S.B. and her boyfriend in Chinatown for dim sum.  It was intense (and good practice for the next 2 years :)) We had to squeeze our way into the little dim sum shop, interpret the menu and jostle with the locals to get our orders in.  And I got an entire meal for less than $3.00.  I love Chinatown :)  After dim sum, we walked around and saw the sights:

After Chinatown, we rode the bus over to Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies.  Also known as the Full House house!

And then we took the bus over to the Mission ... we did some walking around, had some Mexican and saw the Mission Dolores.  It is the oldest intact building in the city of San Francisco and the Mission Cemetery is the only cemetery that remains in the city limits!

It was a gorgeous old building!

After our stop at the Mission, we said good-bye to S.B.'s boyfriend and headed back to the hotel to rest up before dinner.  We met L.Rae in her neighborhood for some Vietnamese at Aux Delices.  

We ended the night with L.Rae over a bottle of rose at Amelie Wine Bar.  We said our good-byes and then headed across the street to a very fun gay bar :)  We were the only females in the place and we made lots of new friends.  It was the perfect ending to our weekend!
