We were very excited to try the much-hyped Frances in the Castro. We made a reservation well ahead of time for a Friday night as you must when all of San Francisco is talking about a place. It wasn't bad, but it gets me thinking about hype and how well places can live up to their "buzz." I wore the military pants I picked up at the White Elephant Sale last weekend. I had no idea how perfectly they'd fit when I purchased them for my Etsy shop. They aren't as lumpy as the picture would have you believe. I apologize for the blurry iphone photos, my new camera arrives tomorrow.
