Yesterday morning I enjoyed an amazing breakfast with Jon and a few of his friends at Crushcakes in Santa Barbara. Along with the most artistic lattes I have ever seen, we also sampled their Red Velvet pancakes, which simply cannot be explained with words. After breakfast and a few quick goodbyes, I hit the road to San Francisco. As an added bonus Jon decided to jump in and catch a ride back to Hollister (where his folks live).
We started off taking the 101-North to King City, where we took a detour and jumped on Highway 25, winding our way through 60 some miles of scenic farm country before popping out at Hollister. I dropped Jon off at his destination, and once again joined the 101 for the last leg of my journey into San Francisco.
I arrived at Aaron’s house around 7:45PM, and thanks to some good parking karma, was able to find a parking space relatively close to his apartment. After unloading my gear, and throwing on some clean clothes, we headed out for dinner. Aaron took me to La Taqueria, for some epic tacos and a couple of Negro Modelo’s. Afterward we grabbed a few beers and some local spots in the Mission (Aaron’s hood), then headed back and called it a night.
