San Francisco resonates in my mind for one reason. No, it’s not the gays or even the hipsters riding around on bikes with missing gears. It’s the show Full House. I watched that show like it was going out of business growing up. Since this was my second time coming to San Francisco with no plans on returning anytime soon, I had to finally see the Full House house.
On the way there, Tiffany directed us to the famous Haight and Ashbury intersection. Jerry Garcia’s house was there, but it was pretty boring so I didn’t bother taking a picture. It’s basically hippie central along with the hipsters who also think it’s cool. Felt like what Williamsburg will be in the future.
First stop was the Full House house. It’s located on 1709 Broderick Street and when you get there it’s rather unimpressive. The street is pretty boring and looked neglected. Worst part is that they don’t have the red doors so when I first got there, I thought we were at the wrong place. I had to look it up online and confirm. You can see a screen cap from the opening credits here.
Since being underwhelmed by the first house I saw, I needed satisfaction. Tiffany was once again on a search for another popular Full House address. That led us to nearby Alamo Square which features the Painted Ladies. I immediately recognized the scene and was finally happy and the search was over.

It was a fun little trip. The only other thing I wanted to take a picture of was the Golden Gate Bridge. Unfortunately the only time it was not completely covered in fog was the first couple days of the first SF trip.
So Tiffany and I flew out to San Francisco again over Labor Day weekend for another wedding. It also happened to be the same family as the last wedding we recently went to. This one however, went off a little more smoothly without any events . Aside from some horrendous traffic trying to cross the Golden Gate Bridge, it was a really nice weekend. The wedding itself was in in Sonoma County, in a little town called Healdsburg - very picturesque. The kind of place full of people just living the good life.
The wedding was held at Madrona Manor, a gorgeous place. The restaurant also has a Michelin Star.

Someone said something funny. I didn’t hear it, but you bet I was laughing anyway.
No idea who this was, but I thought it came out nice.
The guy in the foreground was the wedding photographer. He didn’t appreciate me taking pictures of the scene he was setting up.

Eating outside like homeless people, oh the horror!
All the tables were assigned by flags of the countries that Jessie and Rafi had visited together on their trip around the world.
Picture of Tiffany most likely double fisting wine glasses. Classy girl.
