Miss A Columnist

Sophie Davies is a Brit who worked as a PR director and events coordinator in London with a portfolio of international brands for over a decade, before deciding to leave the hectic world of fashion for a more balanced lifestyle and raise a family in the Bay Area. She is now raising a son and daughter with her husband in Marin County whilst freelance writing, PR consulting, and updating her lifestyle blog called The Marin Scoop. Sophie loves to get out with her family and discover new places, so her blog began as a newsletter for local moms looking for fun activities and events to do with their kids around the Bay Area. The Marin Scoop has evolved into a lifestyle blog that covers the topics she is passionate about, which include; design, home decor, entertaining, fashion, as well as local family friendly activities and events. She also researches and writes articles about local business owners, in particular aspiring “momtrepreneurs” offering a new and interesting service or product line.
Enjoying good food is paramount in her household so she enjoys writing local restaurant reviews from a parent’s point of view, or from a date night perspective.
She also loves photography and social media and can be found pinning on Pinterest or creating pictures on Instagram whenever she finds a rare moment for down-time.

Lucky Strike In San Francisco

I remember celebrating a milestone birthday with a group of friends at Lucky Strike in London a few years ago, so I was super excited to hear one had recently opened in San Francisco. My husband and I decided to check it out for an alternative date night. Doing a fun activity together would make a nice change from going to a restaurant.

Lucky Strike is a huge space with a glass facade on the corner of King Street and 3rd Street, directly opposite the home of the San Francisco Giants. As you walk in the door, you are faced with a 40-foot bar where you can perch yourself with a drink and watch the game on their various flat screens or sit at their high tables and order from their classic American menu.

Lucky Strike’s corporate executive chef Bill Starbuck (whose catering credits includes the Grammys and the Pitt-Aniston wedding) prides himself on revolutionizing bowling cuisine by offering classic favorites with a twist. The choice includes truffle mac & cheese, grilled cheese sliders, soft pretzel dippers, sushi and even fondue to share with friends and family. I ordered the blue cheese sliders with pickles, which came in delicious, soft buns and were very tasty and filling. My husband ordered the crispy short rib tacos, which were very flavorful as they were braised in a special marinade for five hours.

After our meal, it was time to get our surprisingly nice-looking bowling shoes on and hit the lanes. The San Francisco location has 12 state-of-the-art lanes lit up with neon lights and cool signage. Each lane has large leather couches for groups, next to pop art and iconic movie prints lining their exposed brick walls.

Lucky Strike supports the arts by offering local artists the unique opportunity to display their work on-line and in their locations nationwide. There is also a trivia gaming area and a fantastic black and white digital photo booth alongside dress-up props so you can get a cool memento of your evening out.

Lucky Strike is a fun venue option for group bookings such as a birthday, corporate or charity events, as there are several stylish private rooms for private parties. Their various party packages and professional event planners offer full service bar, catering, entertainment options and cutting edge audio visual systems.

When our children get older, this will be a great place to take them as a family, as there were plenty of children having a blast hanging out in groups and improving their bowling skills. Until then, we will enjoy visiting Lucky Strike for date night or future night outs with friends. We had forgotten how fun bowling can be!
