Yesterday when Rachel and I finished at the temple we thought it'd be a good idea to get us some lunch. We debated about where to go...San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, or to Berkeley? Since it was already after one and still cold and stormy out we opted to eat lunch at nearby Berkeley. For me that is an adventure ...I had no clue where to go, or how to get there. (No GPS for me!)
Fortunately we had our handy little smart phones with us, and Rach immediately whipped hers out, pulling up a map of Berkeley, and Oakland, and figured out how to get there.
Once we got to Berkeley (a mere six miles away) then we started seeing all of these interesting places to eat. Which one to choose? No idea! Finally we settled on a little pizza place called The Cheeseboard. We had no idea what we would be getting in to, and kind of figured it'd just be your normal average pizza place. We pulled up and parked right in front of the place. It was a bit busy! So, we figured it was going to be good.
We walked in and noticed that everyone in front of us were paying and receiving their pizza instantly. How does this work? We saw that the menu had one kind of pizza only listed on the board. Hmmm. Now this could be interesting. The 'pizza of the day' was a combination of roasted potatoes, roasted onion, gruyere, mozzarella, fresh herbs and garlic olive oil. They offered three options: for a slice - $2.50; for half a pizza - $10; for a full pizza - $20. We opted for the half.
Oh my, my, my goodness! It is truly one of the best pizzas either Rach or I have ever had. It was kind of fun to go there, sit outside under the heater and watch people pass by. What a great little adventure for us. I loved it! Oh, and they had a band playing inside! If you ever get the chance you should go.
So, I am grateful for fun little adventures. It just knocks the plain out of life. :)
