Last week, I attended Alt San Francisco and got to soak up some sweet time afterwards with one of my favorite families. Since I was still on a bit of a high from Alt NYC in Martha Land, I was interested to see the difference between the NYC version and the San Fran version. (this is the first year for Alt San Francisco) Although I didn't originally plan to attend both events, things fell into place much to my surprise, and I was happy to get the opportunity, especially since it made a way for me to have a few days of good face-to-face time with old friends who moved from Texas to that area a few years ago.
When I got there, I claimed my rental car, and proceeded to drive (which feels like being on a roller coaster, wowsers!) to the Fairmont Hotel where Alt was being held. You guys, this hotel is absolutely gorgeous! It's a historic hotel, and the lobby alone, is worth stopping in to see. Marble and chandeliers like I have never seen!
The plant life and grounds are stunning.
I loved the pairing of the bamboo headboard and Williamsburg-era patterned drapery in my room.
The Alt sponsored dinners are always delicious, and the one I attended (thanks Bing!) did not disappoint. It was held at the Boulevard restaurant.
The theme was "Vintage Glam", and I had fun picking out my outfit. I went with a 1920's look. (which I decided I loved after my Great Gatsby post)
