Ah one of the many unique things about living in our city. We have one week of hot weather (yes, yes I know 75 degrees is not considered hot) and everyone wants to sit outside and have coffee, lunch or dinner. Including our little family. So we walk to our favorite wine bar up the street – Vino Rosso
And it’s hot. I have to work some Photoshop magic to get rid of all that sweat dripping down my baby’s face. Ok it was just 2 drops of sweat. Still, the child doesn’t even know what to make of water coming out of her skin and dripping down her body
And here’s what’s so special about city-living. You wanna dine Al Fresca? Well sometimes your table is right next to the SF Public Water Works Department truck. Hey it actually provided us with some shade from the setting sun so we were happy to have it parked right by our table
Well I was at least. I like shade. My kids turned their noses up at the large green truck and moved to the sunny bench 3 feet away from our table
Well my daughter likes benches in general so she would have sat there regardless
But the truck didn’t stay there for long so my kids moved back over to join their parents.
Plus the food arrived
And the babe was hungry. Very hungry
So she sat there the whole time just eating. A LOT.
My picky eater of course had to be forcibly held down, tickled and fed so we could get some decent amount of food in him
We let the kids play for a bit on the tiny sidewalk. Don’t worry they’re city kids and are well-trained to stay ON the sidewalk
Grizz got to inhale the rest of his cheese plate and wine so you can tell he was in a good mood
Jack-Jack took over the table next to us and my Rex started hunting down random strangers walking by with his home made rifle
And since I was losing my pretty evening light, we decided to call it a night.
We rounded the kids (all TWO of them) and headed on our long 5 minute trek home.
Vino Rosso - If you live in Bernal (or close by), have young children, I highly recommend this place to you. We love it. Plus we just found out the owners’ oldest child goes to the same school as our little Rex. We’re happy to support a fellow parent at our school!
