  • Going to The San Francisco Bay Area next week...

    Anybody around here from the area? I will be there next Wed, and Thurs.
    I might have some free time in the evenings to go explore, but will likely be taking a cab if I go anywhere.

    What's cool to do? Advice?
    —-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, friend.

      Thanks man! Any places to try to visit in particular? Looks like I will be staying near the airport, but I'm interested in knowing what's around to do.

      I've got no idea at this point how to get ahold of those guys you named. Not sure they still come around here... :/

    Drink outdoors with the bike messengers andn hipsters in the sun (if there is sun) at Zeitgeist.

    Cruise the bars and check out the crack-zombies on Polk street.

    Have an insanely good comfort-food meal (a little pricey though) at The Front Porch.

    Awesome burritos everywhere, but a couple of my favorites are Taqueria Cancun, Taqueria San Jose, and Guadalajara (amazing, but it's way the hell out in the Excelsior).

    The Exploratorium is indeed rad.

    North Beach has a lot of great food, but the scene is pretty overrun with douche frat types, although it's way worse on the weekends.  Might not affect you too much.

    See what shows are going on at various smallish clubs-- Cafe DuNord, Bottom of the Hill, Yoshi's, The Independent, Great American Music Hall.

    The Duck Tours are super touristy, but actually a pretty fun way to see ****************.

    All this stuff is pretty spread out, so you'll want to plan your attack if you're cabbing it from the airport.

    Have fun, man!

      Thanks guys! I appreciate the insight. Hopefully I will have a little time to see some stuff. I'm going to be there for work, but I should have some free time in the evening to check stuff out. I was hoping to not just spend my free time in the hotel, and hotel bar!

      The Exploratorium sounds like its up my alley. Hopefully it doesn't close at 5pm...

      Some good suggestions for tourists here, but the Exploratorium has moved out of its old location and has not yet reopened.

    Real Guitars on Lafayette.
    Amoeba Records in the Haight.

    Eat great mexican food in a lot of places, but particularly Mamacita - definitely worth going to.

    Just walk around and check things out, except Fisherman's Wharf which was pretty horrible tourist muck.

      Thanks everyone for the replies. I'm out here now, so I will see what I can get myself into!

      I'm downtown currently.

    Go eat the Cioppino at Tadich Grill-- oldest restaurant in San Francisco.  The Cioppino is insane.

      I will keep that in mind! I must admit, I'm not much of a seafood conneseur.
