San Francisco is consumed with trendy cocktail joints.I planned on wearing my white maxi for a gal date with Kelly. Except the morning's forecast was a gray one, so I threw on my boots in a last-minute dash out the door.It often feels like my days are drained clocking in and by the time I clock out, the personal to do list is double the size. It's days when I have adventures planned with friends to make me forget the long list of reply emails I need to write (also, the cocktails help out a little). Days when we get to explore and create! Kelly has a knack for those days.MontgomeryFestWe met in The Mission and walked a few pastel-hued and mural covered blocks before we approached the doorman who carded us (!!) for entry. Such an activity always makes me feel like I should be donning heels, skinny jeans and a clutch. That was until we walked in and remembered we're in SF, where casual reigns.The Mission, SF | MontgomeryFestThe Mission, SF | MontgomeryFestNimboo Earrnings | MontgomeryFestWe ordered names off the carte that sounded more like cartoon characters than beverages. Mine came with homemade marshmallows. Score.It was standing room only with a back door that peered into a resto with an equally swanky feel. We put our name down and finished our works of art in a mug.

This was not the case. The portions of each course were inversely proportional to the taste...which was heavenly.
