The first event for the FoodBuzz Blogger Festival was a cocktail reception at Harry Denton’s Starlight Room, which is located on the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. After my long and boring train ride to the city, I was more than happy to enjoy a drink and some conversation.
They had two complimentary cocktails, a peach spritzers and hibiscus martini. I hated the peach one but the martini was amazing. I had two!
There were vegan some hors d’oeuvres too! Sesame tofu with a little wakame, spicy melon skewers, mini beat salads. All went very well with my cocktails.
Another amazing thing—the view! It was a little foggy so we could not see the bay very well, so it was just a fantastic view of the city.
I had cocktails with two very lovely ladies, Brigitt from cook with b and Kristianne from My San Francisco Kitchen. I also met the author of a blog I already love, Emily from Newly Wife. Check out their blogs too!
As for the Starlight room itself, the decor is a bit outdated and worn, but overall it’s a nice place. The service was great too. I would definitely recommend it for a cocktail before or after dinner, especially for a fun date night.
