San Francisco Pride

This past weekend I went to San Francisco for a giants game, and ended up getting involved in a bunch of Pride Weekend festivities. Here’s an overview of my weekend and some of what I wore to different events.

Saturday I spent most of the day shopping. I got some great stuff from Club Monaco, Banana Republic, and Ben Sherman, all of which were having amazing sales, especially Club Monaco. After a long day of shopping I went to The Slanted Door for a delicious dinner. I only have a picture of our oyster appetizers, but the rest of the food was phenomenal.

After dinner, my family, my girlfriend and I went to the Pink Saturday Pride Block Party, which was completely off the hook. This is what I wore for dinner and subsequently to the Pink Pride Block Party, also pictured is my girlfriend, my mom, my brother, and some random chick.

Here’s a breakdown of what I wore for dinner and to the Pink Party, I had just gotten the Blazer that day from Club Monaco:

Shirt: Ben Sherman

Pants: Dockers

Blazer: Club Monaco

Bow Tie: The Tie Bar

Bracelet: Threadetiquette 

Sunday was the morning of the famous Pride Parade. I sadly didn’t go all out with my LBGT pride because I was decked out in Giants gear for a game I was going to later that day. I only stayed around the parade for about two hours because I had to get to the Giants game, but I had an amazing time watching, and I wish I had time to see the whole thing. The crowd and the parade were both so positive and full of energy, it would have been impossible not to have a good time. I heard later that it went for almost 5 HOURS!!! Sunday morning is also when I purchased a completely custom pair of converse with a paisley rainbow print in honor of Pride Weekend. The lady who designed them did an amazing job transforming my idea into a reality.

Since the game ended early, I decided to do a little more shopping. I found an amazing second hand store called Jeremy’s with lots of well priced designer clothing, I didn’t pick up anything from here, however, as I was reaching the end of my funds, and I was saving for one more thing. I did slip a little when I went to the Uniqlo store and picked up a pair of shorts. I was very tempted to buy an OCBD in every color, but I had bought enough shirts this weekend already. My last purchase, the one I had been thinking about all weekend, was a new watch, and this time around, it would be a nice one, at least by my standards. I ended up purchasing a Seiko Core, seen below, and I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

This was my last stop for the night before we grabbed food at the Burger Bar on the 6th floor of Macy’s.

Monday was my last day in San Francisco, and so we made a couple stops before heading home. The first stop was at Fisherman’s wharf, arguably the biggest tourist trap in San Francisco, but still a fun place to visit nevertheless. Next we went down to Fort Point, which was open, luckily. I would recommend everyone visit this beautiful historic site at least once. The last stop was at a lookout point just across the Golden Gate Bridge where I was forced to say goodbye to my favorite city. I’ll be back again in August for Outside Lands.
