More Things to Do Without Kids in San Francisco


Wednesday night my husband had a touch-football work event so we kept it low-key. I skipped the game, opting to stay in and binge POSE instead. That show is a roller coaster of emotions. I’m on the brink of tears one minute, gleefully smiling the next. I love it.

Thursday evening we went back out into the world. We checked out the wine bar Etcetera Wine Bar on Valencia in the Mission District, one of our favorite places to hang out in the city. I had an amazing Rose wine flight and my husband enjoyed a Malbec flight. We ordered a charcuterie and cheese plate to compliment our wine, it was exquisite but not quite filling.

Time for a Snack

We were hanging out in Haight Ashbury earlier that day!

To fill up, we walked over to The Monk’s Kettle, another place we’ve been meaning to try. The Monk’s Kettle is small. We were pretty lucky and didn’t have to wait to get a table. Joining the wait list while heading over is something I highly recommend doing. Once seated, we both had different versions of their delectable fried chicken sandwich to eat. Stuffed, we headed home and I immediately fell asleep on the couch. Part of not having the little one around is the opportunity to sleep without interruption!

On our last evening alone, we again went somewhere where we could sit outside. We went to the Biergarten in Hayes Valley. This is such a great spot. There is a small playground across the street and lots of little shops. Besides draft beers, you can enjoy pretzels and various types of knots. They have cheese knots, meat knots and more. Before eating here, I had no idea what a “knot” was. Basically, it’s a little sandwich with pretzel bread. All of the various knots were very tasty.

One Last Child-Free Outing

Saturday morning, we went to one last brunch alone before picking up our little one. We went to Zazie in Cole Valley. This is an adorable French restaurant with a small garden that you can sit in in the back. The wait to sit outside was an hour, so we ate inside instead and were seated immediately.

My Chai Tea was served in what I would call a bowl. You can see from my facial expression above that I enjoyed it and didn’t mind the large mug! I had to try their Miracle Pancakes with my tea before they sold out of them for the day. Miracle Pancakes are bread pudding pancakes, need I say more about how amazing they are?

We’re a Vans family!

After brunch, we went to get our little one and got to hug her and welcome her home. All 3 of us had a wonderful week, but we were happy to be reunited. Until our next childless adventure, I’ll be back to sharing family-friendly things to do in San Francisco with you!

    A rose flight sounds like such a good idea! Bet they tasted pretty great 🙂

      They were so good! Flights are such a great way to discover new wines!
