Do you ever have that feeling when you stop and suddenly realize that you haven’t seen your closest friends in forever? I had that feeling this weekend so I hurriedly texted my friend S and told her we needed a day of shopping, burgers, and laughter. A trip up to San Francisco ended up being just what I needed to ease into this week. We had beautiful weather and a lovely lunch of cocktails and burgers courtesy of Daily Grill.
The Daily Grill is located next to the Handlery Hotel in San Francisco. It’s a great choice for a quiet bite, especially in a bustling touristy area.
We started with cocktails, mine being the Violet Berries which had Tito’s Vodka and fresh pureed blackberries. It was so yummy and refreshing. We both ended up ordering the Chop House burger and fries. Through a mouthful of deliciously messy burgers, we caught up on school news, politics, and all the other topics that you discuss with someone you haven’t seen in about two months!
I feel like I really need to do this more, deliberately take the time to see the special people in my life. This busy season is about to get even busier but that’s not really an excuse. I feel more grounded when I get a chance to listen to things my friends are dealing with in their lives.
Have you taken the time to call your friends lately? If not, challenge yourself to pick up the phone and call someone. And share a burger with them when you get the chance!
