Hometown girl Ali Wong was back in town for the holidays over the weekend, making a stop in her "Milk & Money" tour at the Masonic, and eating some food around town as well.
Wong, who grew up in Pacific Heights, did some of her first standup comedy at SoMa's Brainwash Cafe in the mid-aughts, and in the last few years she's seen her star skyrocket in the comedy world thanks to a couple of Netflix specials. She's been a writer on the soon-to-end sitcom Fresh Off the Boat since it began in 2015, and this year saw her starring in a Netflix film, Always Be My Maybe, an SF-set romcom which she co-wrote with costar Randall Park and Michael Golamco.
On Instagram Wong posted shots of herself chilling backstage with "mommy and daddy" Ayesha and Steph Curry on Sunday night (SFGate notes via Ayesha's Instagram that they were on a date night), as well as eating dinner with her family at Hong Kong Lounge. Also, Inner Sunset Korean soul food spot Um.ma posted a shot of Wong stopping in there on Monday.
On the Hong Kong Lounge photo, which features Wong's daughter pulling on her hair, she writes, "When your hair becomes the main source of toddler entertainment so everyone else can eat their har gow in peace."
Wong is mother of a four-year-old daughter and a two-year-old daughter, both of whom have become subjects in her recent standup.
On Monday, Wong also dropped in on Green Apple Books in the Richmond to sign copies of her book Dear Girls.
