A Chargers Celebration
What a weekend!!! Insane amounts of fun AND we walked away with an incredible victory after one of the best Charger's games I've ever seen!
We arrived Friday morning and our group was bused to Levi's Stadium for a private tour.
Such an incredible, well-thought out stadium. High-tech, sustainable, no detail was missed.
Even their cheerleaders get their own fancy space:
After our tour, we went to Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak & Pub for our group lunch. Their was a delicious buffet of different sandwiches and salads.
After lunch, we quickly walked through the 49ers museum.
The Superbowl trophies were definitely my favorite.
We boarded the bus and headed into San Francisco to check into our hotel, The Clift Hotel. My husband and I had the luxury of taking a nap before getting ready for dinner with some friends at George's.
My meal started with the Crudo of Albacore Tuna.
Followed by Mint Spaghetti alla Chitarra (Abacore Tuna Meatballs, Sofritto Tomato Sauce, Pecorino Romano):
The pasta was pretty darn good.
My husband and I shared the Apple Pie Sundae for dessert:
Eh. I wasn't a fan. The ice cream was strange and the apples were in these tiny little pieces….just tasted strange to me.
We slept in on Saturday morning then headed down the street to Taylor's Street Coffee Shop. The place was tiny and the long was long so I knew it had to be good. I was not disappointed.
Norweigian Benedict with Hash Browns. Un-real. You know what was even better? Their "Millionaire's Bacon":
The bacon was cooked with brown sugar, syrup and cayenne pepper. It melts in your mouth. For real.
After breakfast we boarded our bus to Levi Stadium for the Chargers vs. 49ers game.
We went straight to the Red Zone Rally and enjoyed a fun tailgate complete with all sorts of tailgate type food. For me, the winner was the hot wings. Not as good as the ones I make, but they did the job.
Dessert was cookies and brownies.
Our group was able to go onto the field for the warm ups.
Then it was game time!!!
It started off rough. We were down 21-0. But in the end, we beat the 49ers 88-35 in overtime! It might possibly be the best Chargers (or any other team for that matter) game I've ever seen! The Chargers crowd was going nuts!
We just kept looking at each other like, "did that just happen!?!"
We boarded the bus and headed back to San Francisco. We were hungry so we grabbed some pizza slices before heading to bed.
This morning I had a Cascadian Farm protein bar before we headed off to the airport for home.
We had plenty of time at the airport so we were able to sit down to breakfast.
Nothing like a good bloody mary to get your Sunday started.
I ordered an egg, chorizo and cheese panini. I gave the chips to my husband. Somehow they didn't seem appropriate for breakfast.
After a quick flight, we are finally home! What a great weekend! Way to go Chargers!
Did your team(s) come out victorious this weekend?
