The Holidays in Two Great California Cities

I don’t know why I feel the need to compare. Maybe it’s because I spent 15 years in one city and now I’m venturing into our first holiday in another. These comparisons are very, very subjective. Keep that in mind. Ho ho ho…

8 Reasons Why the Holidays Are Awesome in Los Angeles
1. It’s warm and there’s lots of sunshine. Duh.
2. Rockwell Table & Stage. We are booking a table for the Home Alone show. Extra plus that Rockwell’s is in my ‘hood.

3. We can see a screening of Star Wars at the El Capitan in Hollywood. There’s just something fun about it.
4. We can go for a walk on the beach in December without a jacket.
5. There are no Google buses or Facebook parties to clog up the city.
6. There are lots and lots of people and charities who need help (and not only during the holidays).
7. There are a ton of delicious restaurants, with ok service, and many are new (to me!)
8. It’s relatively easy to avoid the hyper-annoying event SantaCon.

8 Reasons Why the Holidays Are Awesome in San Francisco
1. The air is appropriately cool and crisp.
2. The Nutcracker Ballet at the War Memorial.

3. My dear friend hosts a Swedish smorgasbord – yay pickled herring and Aquavit!
4. There’s nothing like a lit up city scape during the holidays.
5. There are no Star Wagons or movie production trucks blocking off streets or entire neighborhoods.
6. There are lots and lots of people and charities who need help (and not only during the holidays).
7. There are tons of delicious restaurants, with great service, but many have been tried (by me!)
8. Only 4 months until the SF Giants Opening Day!
