A friend of mine hosted a small baby shower at Ondine. I have to admit, Ondine has one of the best views of the water. They have a "sister restaurant" downsatirs called Horizons, so this is where they prepare all the food. The banquet manager, Kristy was there the whole time to make sure that everything ran smoothy. She even joined in on some of the baby games which I thought was fun. And the lunch was amazing. We had a small buffett that offered finger foods and fresh salads. It was worth it.
I attended a friend's wedding at the Carnelian on the 52 nd floor. There were about 200 people there and I think the room fit pretty nicely. It was a "rounded room" so at times it was hard to see the bride and groom because of the pillars. The head table was situated in front of a "wine cellar" so I thought that was nice. Th efood was goos and the view of San Francisco at night form the tall glass windows were nice. Overall, I had a great time.
I went to Castro Day Spa to get a few spa treatments- facial, massage, etc. for one of their special day spa packages. Their packages are great because you can have multiple treatments without feeling the pinch in your pocket. The price was reasonable- pretty comporable to other spas in the area- made more reasonable by the fact that I bought the package. The staff was very nice and the atmosphere was very calming and relaxing. The was very very clean and pleasant. Overall I was quite happy with the spa and I would recommend that you stop in for a nice massage or manicure or something if you are in the area.

I stumbled upon this bakery when I was walking through Chinatown. The aroma that floated through the doors invited me in. I was tantalized by all the yumy desserts, breads, and other food items. I tried the sponge cake. It was very light and fluffy. And the prices were very inexpensive. I will definitely return there for a full cake. The fresh fruit cake looks really good and the prices are great.
The receptionists are nice and courteous. Convenient hours for appointments are available Monday thru Saturday. Dr. Yap is very gentle, caring and patient. He exams my mouth thoroughly and shows me my teeth with the intra-oral camera. Then he discusses with me my oral health, oral hygiene and treatment needs/options. He uses BOTH the ultrasonic cleaning and hand instruments to clean my teeth and to make sure that he does a good job. Injections are virtually painless. I went to him when my dentist was on vacation. I was glad I did

If you like to buy flowers and along with shopping for cards and stuffed animals then this is a very nice store for you. The flowers are reasonably priced and they offer a large selection of gifts. Most store specialize in just flowers but here you can find a wide array of stuffed animals balloons and beanie babies. They do a particularly good job of wrapping the flowers to look like a dispay . They have nice printed cellophane so your flowers end up looking like a bouquet. This flower shop is very clean and has a wonderful aroma. Most of the flowers are pretty fresh and yo can find a good deal. However, I did not care for the customer service. Some of teh counter persons are friendly. while others are of no help. So I think that it depends on the time of day that you go will determine the service.

Used or new, this bookstore is a small place full of books everywhere, on every shelf and inevery little nook and cranny. The books are pretty fairly priced and the workers are really friendly. They always help you find anything that you need. It is a small store so it cannot accommadate a lot of people, so when it gets busy, its a little hard to walk through the isles. But its still nice. And it is located right next to a caf so its a treat to be able to purchace a nice read and hang out in the cafe next door.
