It’s Memorial Day Weekend and beyond the three days of rest most of us will get, this is also a time where many will honor those who have died in the name of our country. This Monday there will be a Memorial Day parade at the Presidio Main Parade Ground at 10:30 AM followed by a ceremony at the San Francisco National Cemetery at 11:00 AM.
If you will be in Presidio this coming Monday and are looking for some place to eat, you’ll have a few options. For something more formal there’s either Pres a Vi in the Letterman Center or the Presidio Social Club. Pres a Vi is global fusion and most dishes are under $15. The last time we were there was for brunch and we had shrimp benedict on brioche. Not too far away the Presidio Social Club serves upscale comfort food (think mac & cheese and flank steak). They have a retro 40’s décor and they’re known for their classic cocktails. If you’re looking for some place to grab a cup of fair trade coffee and a fresh, organic sandwich then the The Warming Hut over on Crissy Field is a good option. They were closed most of last year after a fire caused severe water damage, but they reopened this past December and all seems to be well.
While we’re happy for the holiday, we wish just the same that it wasn’t necessary. That said, we are grateful to those who have risked their lives so that we might keep ours.
