Just booked a last minute trip to San Fran, Thursday to Monday - Looking for fun events, good eats, beautiful places to take photos, etc.
Staying in Fishermans Wharf (and one day just north of Sausalito) - Also one day in Napa, so vineyard advice
Prefer less-touristy, local fav's and art/design related places/activities.
Haight - Asbury = Amoeba Records
Ya mean Labor Day?
Opps - yep Labor Day :( this coming weekend
food (all in the mission-this where i usually go):
tacos at papalote
vegan mexican at gracias madre
pizza at paxtis
anything at the corner restaurant at 18th and mission (switches daily-chefs bring in all their own food)
for an amazing dinner or brunch at bar tartine
great food and a movie at foreign cinema
things to do:
walk down valencia in the mission. tons of great shops-clothing furniture/books/design wares etc.
walk down chestnut and union streets in pacific heights-shops, tons of places to eat, douchebags galore :)
walk through golden gate park
hike up to the top of bernal heights for expansive city views
hike up to the top of twin peaks for expansive city views
hayes valley corridor with a bunch of shops-design related/furniture/clothing
haight ashbury for other stores. some good, but also tons of crap
hard knocks cafe for some good soul food in dogpatch
farmer browns for some good soul food in the tenderloin
saturday market at the ferry building
and basically, spend your day away from the fisherman's warf. probably the worst/tourist spot in all of SF.
less touristy? your staying at the wharf man.
take a trip to Healdsburg - a town filled with local vineyards tasting rooms.
re wharf stay: we scored a great deal for hotel there and figured it'd be central enough to easily rely on public transportation
Twin Peaks for the best view of the city.
Osha Thai Food.
Dolores Park for fucking around.
