We also ordered an olive salad bowl which featured several types of olives. This was the perfect snack to go with the gin:
There is an option to order some boquerones (Spanish anchovies) to go with the olive salad — this is a excellent deal for $1:

The first event of the America’s Cup World Series was in the City this week, and a sailing social event filled the bay with more boats than usual:
It was a perfect night at the ballpark, and the Giants win made it even better:
