Paddle Boarding in Foster City

Gotta love Foster City!!! With the City's lagoon system and miles of waterways covering a surface area of more than 200 acres, we have numerous recreational opportunities. Although powerboats are prohibited at all times on the lagoon, other options are sailing on the beautiful blue lagoon throughout the City is one of the most popular leisure sport activities.

We took advantage on one warm day to enjoy the beautiful water. We went to California Windsurfing and this place is awesome! We can rent various equipment for a very reasonable price. It is such a great to unwind and destress. We highly recommend it!

A Piece of Italy, Downtown San Mateo

If this is what fresh and authentic Italian fare made from scratch taste like, then we truly have found the place!

When you walk into to Pausa, your stress level completely decreases, and your pleasure spot in your brain completely takes over. The décor is designed such that the guests can take a break from their daily pace of life, and enjoy a dining experience that transports them to a place of leisure.

Every dish we ordered were scrumptiously delicious. The chef had awaken our dormant taste buds and showed us how wonderfully food can taste. We particularly enjoyed learning from our knowledgeable bartender who made some killer expresso martini.

We learned that each dish from Pausa is handmade, so there are no two identical dishes if you want to be matchy match. Also they put the name of the restaurant in the back of every dish. How cool is that?


Heirloom tomato arancini, house made mozzarella, buffalo ricotta fonduta-the best arancini we’ve ever tasted.

Spinach tagliatelle wiht pancetta, hazelnut & sage pesto, semi-dried cherry tomatoes, pecorino romano-perfectly al dente!

Alaskan halibut, corn mash, naked barley, scallions, pickled cherry tomatoes, basil pesto-this is purely heaven!!

The Wolf, Oakland

We were walking on the Piedmont street in Oakland and come across The Wolf. First we didn’t know what to expect but as we walked up toward the restaurant, it was such a pleasant surprise!

There is a very interesting story behind this particular restaurant. Per The Wolf website, the owners had their first date at the restaurant which was called “Baywolf” 20+ years ago. Now they are able to take over this amazing space and serve incredible delicious food.

The décor at The Wolf is upscale but not pretentious.

The food is a modern interpretation of classic gourmet.

The dessert is thoughtful and creative.
