Barefoot Blue Jean Night

Let me just start out by making two obvious points: first, their aren’t enough pisco cocktails out there; second these Encanto boys always look like GQ models when they show up to an event.

The past two weeks have been warm in San Francisco. Warm enough to play hooky, warm enough to stay in a bikini, have a water fight, or to watch an entire football game in a t-shirt at Candlestick Park. Simply put, it’s been perfect weather for a BBQ and a barefoot Blue Jean Night.
