I saw an article in the SF Chronicle / SFGate.com mentioning the Rooftop Garden Blue Bottle Coffee Bar which is Part of the new rooftop garden at SFMOMA.  I'll have to check it out next time I'm there pretending that I have culture.

It took me 2.5 years, but I did get to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art yesterday (SFMOMA).

Most of the art is too minimalistic for me. Tall walls painted brown just don't do it for me. I did like these two exhibits. On the left a dark tunnel which shape "continues" into this film about workers in a factory hallway having lunch. On the right a display showing a watch. Each time the hand snaps to the next seconds marker, a camera takes a picture of the audience, then freezes the image for one second till the hand snaps again. I'm visible on the right.

This beautiful macchiato was prepared for another customer, who promptly added sugar and half and half milk to this macchiato! I really did not want to see that.

Blue Bottle SFMOMA blend espresso pulled on the lever. The Barista told me that it is very similar to Hayes Valley, just one of the five coffee beans in the blend was different. Nice shot!!
