We were able to hook up a place in Stinson beach last minute and it was beautiful. It poured on Saturday morning which was cool to see. When it cleared up we went to Mill Valley and Mill Valley Beerworks. That place is so badass. The food is completely delicious, they have started to brew their own good beer, and I got a Struisse Weltmertz on draft. OMG. So delicious. Scott called bullshit that they listed it at 3% ABV but looks like that was correct. I caught the mill valley vibe and almost spent way too much on a tasteful eileen fisher tunic. It was because I had just been reading the profile of her in the NYer that morning. I am so glad I walked away.
We checked out Mill Valley market which is old school and really reminds me of Corti Bros. The wine/liquor section is lined with photos of vintners from the 70s and 80s before everyone got completely absurdly rich. They are all wearing suits in every photo. Plus, the obligatory signed photo of Sammy Hagar, not wearing a suit as you would imagine.
The next day we went to Cowgirl Creamery, which also has superb sandwiches and of course I bought a lot of cheese. So many euro tourists! It is def. a spot that you would be stoked to find as a tourist. Between local cheese and Bread Maiden bread pretty much all I ate was cheese and bread all weekend.
We then did a brief hike (really a walk) out to Limantour Beach which is my new favorite beach in the area. No crowds even on a sunny sunday.
Yay! Such a magical area of this fucked up country. That latter statement was brought to you by the fact of how many americans are violently opposed to obamacare and that 27 percent of america wants to shut down the government to stop it.
