    Now I know Jesus saves, but why does he need money?

    See's Candies is NASTY. A lot of east coast people seem to have a weird fascination with them just because you can't get them here, but trust me, they are like half a notch above Russell Stover's. Just because they have their own storefronts doesn't make them "fancy". And everyone on the west coast knows it.

    In-N-Out, on the other hand -- AWESOME! Yes, NO trip out west is complete without at least one stop at an In-N-Out. Two words: ANIMAL STYLE.

    Come on back any time you like Jimmy. We all had a great time chilling, hanging, dancing, eating, drinking.

    Couple of notes. While I'd not be a strongly worded as schen, I'm not a See's Candies fan. The best chocolate out of SF is Scharfenburger. Hands down the most awesome 75-80% cacao chocolate you will ever eat.

    While Scharffen Berger (https://www.scharffenberger.com/) is definitely *good*, I would say that Joseph Schmidt (https://www.josephschmidtconfections.com/) is better, and if you want simple incredibly fantastic chocolate, Guittard (https://www.guittard.com/) beats both hands-down, especially with their premium E. Guittard line.

    All three of these chocolatiers are in the SF Bay Area (only Joseph Schmidt is actually in SF itself). All are worthy. Unfortunately *both* Scharffen Berger *and* Joseph Schmidt have recently been acquired by *spit* Hersheys. They claim they will just let them continue operating exactly as they have been. Hopefully this is true.
