My husband and I are nearing five years together, and between that and applying for a rental house we really adore (fingers extra-crossed), we had a lot to almost-celebrate. So we almost made reservations, and instead ended up at the chef’s bar at Scratch in Mountain View. Dinner and drinks were delicious and it was just the date night we needed.
Since I work in luxury real estate marketing and business development on the San Francisco Peninsula, the fact that this market is incredibly robust makes what I do even more exciting. On the flip side, as a participant in the salmon run of renters fighting the current to move upstream, it can get frustrating. Hashtag love-hate relationship. I have a lot of hope riding on this story ending well!
