Chris Botti SF Jazz/8 Year Anniversary Weekend

Posted by on January 14, 2017

Since we had seen Chris Botti in the past and he puts on one hell of a performance, we couldn’t help but go see him again at SF Jazz.  It also happened to be our 8th Anniversary weekend, so we indulged.  Stephanie and Gus also purchased tickets to see Chris Botti, so we enjoyed the evening with fine food and good friends!

We got a night room with a view.

Our beautiful hotel.. The Fairmont.  There is a great story behind this hotel for Scott’s parents.  This is where they went on their honeymoon ___ years ago.  Below you will see the receipt that Scott still has from a scrapbook that his mom made of their honeymoon photos and souvenirs.    

This receipt was in the scrapbook.  Look at those prices back in _____.  When we checked into the hotel, we asked if we could get repeat pricing.  The hotel staff was amazed at the receipt and asked to keep it.  Good thing we had a copy.  They unfortunately were not so inclined to give us this room rate.  But check out the cost for room ($6.00 per night) and parking too ($0.75 per night).

We went and visited the Tonga Room.  This is actually where Scott and I went for our first date, to San Francisco and the Tonga Room.

Our room with a view..

Chris Botti himself.. doing what he does best!

The AMAZING Sandy Cameron!  She really is a badass violin player!  

And the seats weren’t too shabby either! 🙂

Cy Smith!  What a voice this one has on her!

Sad to leave as San Francisco is always fun, eclectic and holds a special place… Until next time SF!
