Striped Skirt with a Bright Top & Visiting Berkeley

Last weekend, we visited Berkeley. I decided to wear my striped skirt; you last saw the striped skirt paired with a black tee and red accessories.

Many of you had commented that you'd like to see the skirt with a bright top, so I wore it this time with a raspberry tank and cardigan, and I like the outcome.

I love the redwoods right in the middle of the UC Berkeley campus. 

We also made it to the famous Campanile Tower. 

There are so many fun and interesting things to explore on campus. 

After visiting the UC Berkeley campus - Andy's alma mater - we went to the Pacific Standard Taproom

Andy got a beer flight, and I had a tasty cider (third from the left).

Pacific Standard is an outpost of Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. They have an impressive tap list that includes Half Moon Bay Brewing Company beers as well as many others. What was truly unexpected was the quality and deliciousness of the food. The food menu is small, but everything is made with love and truly outstanding. 

We started with some pickled vegetables, which were crunchy and had the perfect seasoning. 

We also got a grilled cheese sandwich and a charcuterie board. The grilled cheese sandwich was served with tortilla chips which came with the tastiest salsa we have ever tasted. And that is not an overstatement. The charcuterie board had a wonderful selection of cheeses and meats as well as more of the delicious pickled vegetables. 

Finally, there were freshly baked pretzel knots, which were served with a warm cheese sauce and a mustard sauce. Everything was extremely tasty and by far exceeded our expectations. 

Questions: Do you like the striped skirt better with the black top or the raspberry top? What was your last tasty outing?
