Mini Vacation in Sac Town!

It's been about 60 degrees in SF pretty much this entire summer so I thought it'd be really fun to just get away, even if it was just for a day. SO we decided to go to Sacramento! I found a great deal for a hotel room at the Hyatt Regency downtown so off we went. It's AMAZING how much warmer it is just an hour and a half away from the city! 95 degrees! :)

We started our "vacation" with an outdoor lunch in Old Sacramento aboard the Delta King. We didn't make it there in time for lunch but the menu was the same for the lounge. It was SO nice to sit outside in the sun with my Bloody Mary! We ate while watching sailboats and water jets go by.

Afterwards, we walked around for a bit and decided to head back to the hotel. The only problem was that we took a taxi to Old Town but there were NO taxis to be found to take us back! So the only option was to walk. Even though our hotel was probably only a mile away, WALKING in 95 degree heat FELT like a LOT farther! At least I worked off my lunch! We did get to see a few couples getting married, which was fun. :)

After watching a couple of movies in the room, we decided to check out the hotel's restaurant, Dawson's for dinner. It was FABULOUS! The food was yummy and the service was incredible! We LOVED our waiter, who was witty and charming. Here is some of the stuff we had: Bread Basket with Olive Spread and creamy Butter, VERY fresh Oysters with a Champagne Dipping Sauce, the most AWESOME Crabcakes EVER and Carrotcake Dessert to DIE for!

Here we are with our new favorite Cabernet, Raymond Vineyards R Collection. We found them later at BevMo and bought 4 bottles since they were on sale! :)

And the best part of our trip? FREE Breakfast! Thanks to our AAA discount, our room included a FREE Breakfast Buffet! There was SO much yummy food there. Here is my plate with Smoked Salmon, Tomatoes and Capers on an English Muffin, Cantaloupe, Honey Dew, Pineapple and a BIG Bran Muffin. But you know what my favorite item was? CHEERIOS! I guess I haven't had a good bowl of cereal forever now and it was SO good!

This was an AWESOME mini vacation for us! Sometimes you just NEED to get away for the weekend! Thanks honey! MUAH!

That dinner --- let's be honest, especially the carrot cake dessert --- looks absolutely amazing.

I just found your blog and love it! My philosophy exactly.

Had to comment on the Raymond R Collection wine. My husband's aunt does sales and marketing for Raymond, and we got a case of the different Raymond wines for our wedding last year, and have visited the winery. Great wine from Napa and the R collection is such a great valu.
