Ballet in Stern Grove

As part of the Stern Grove Festival, Kat and I attended a free, outdoor ballet this past Sunday in Stern Grove instead of attending SF's Dore Alley festivities (Google at your own risk). Per Stern Grove Website:

Stern Grove Festival Association is a non-profit cultural organization committed to providing the people of the Bay Area with admission-free access to diverse performing arts.

Every year since 1938, the organization presents Stern Grove Festival, an admission-free performing arts series, in Sigmund Stern Grove, a beautiful outdoor amphitheater located at 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard in San Francisco.

It was so romantic, and moving forward will become a regular date spot. Even in the middle of July, Kat and I bundled up prepping for the low 60 degree weather, grabbed coffee and a blanket, and eventually found a spot way up in the hills (we showed up a little late - only 45 minute before the ballet began). Yes, we had to duck under trees and branches, but I think that made the experience that much more fun. Yet another example of one of the many offerings this city has. Love.
