As a freelance photographer and blogger I often find myself working out of cafes but that gets to be an unreliable source to get work done. On a quest to be more productive with my work I found Werqwise a new co-working space, in SOMA.
After almost two months of working out of Werqwise, I am impressed with what they have built. Werqwise is a lot more than renting a desk, it feels like a community, from the people at the front desk to the other members. I love all the amenities that they offer (listed below)
Hot desk workspace (booth and café style tables) and huddle space
“Do Not Disturb” zone desk
Espresso Bar (latte, cappuccino, and Americano) and kitchen (full range of complementary drip coffees, tea, cold brew coffee, flavored waters, sparkling/still water and healthy snacks)
For a limited time, Werqwise is having the following promo

For anyone considering Werqwise, go give them a visit and space will speak for itself. I’m surprised to find Werqwise rental prices quite reasonable given what it’s providing and the multiple amenities that are offered. Running a company is busy enough without having to worry about being a janitor, barista and front desk receptionist at the same time.

I needed time away from reality and checked in for a memorable staycation. Can’t wait to go back
I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to try asian food that emphasis on being fast, my thought go straight to mall food. This was not the case when I visited the newest Asian Box in the marina district. I was pleasantly surprised.
The interior is chic and welcoming with large windows that allow for beautiful natural light to come through. There is also a small patio section available.
On to the food (and drinks). I ordered a custom box, for my base I chose Asian salad, lemongrass pork ( which was perfectly seasoned and grilled) for my protein, and went all out with the toppings, which include fried onion, sprouts, cilantro and eggs. Full of flavor, not greasy and absolutely fresh!!!
Drinksssss….. from what I know this is the only location to have alcoholic drink, which are a nice welcome. I started with a pineapple mojito, which was refreshing and tropical, my second drink was a coconut cooler, this was my favorite, the vanilla- cardamom, combined with coconut and rum to die for.
This is also perfect to take out and go enjoy it in nearby Chrissy field. I can’t wait to go back.
I had the pleasure of attending a tasting and cocktail class centered around one of my favorite liquors, gin . The class was led by “ginnosseur” Keli Rivers who is very knowledgeable and witty when talking about gin.
The tasting took place in the amazing Anchor Distilling tasting room a top Anchor Brewing in Potrero Hill . The gin for the afternoon was No 3 Gin, which was aromatic, smooth and had a juniper driven taste. I can say I enjoyed the botanical aroma of No. 3.
We made 4 cocktails, which were all amazing. I wil put the recipie a below. They are all simple to make with a very craft taste that go beyond a gin tonic. All the recipes are perfect to enjoy the rest of the summer. I’ll be ditching the rosé for a nice gin cocktail. If you make the recipie please send me photos, I’d love to see them.
