Summer is coming. Wanted: one slim cotton adventure suit, preferably cheap, to be rocked first like Parer, then like Moriarty:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Uniqlo and H&M are far away, so I can't gauge quality (if they make them at all); the W+H and Opening Ceremony versions looked good, but possibly inappropriate for rugged adventure, and I don't see them online anymore.

Thoughts?

Thanks. I tried this back when I was willing to spend a bit more, but no luck. Absurd pricing, nothing in stock, have to bend over backwards to buy online...

Lane is right. If not otherwise, either lose or gain some weight and you can buy new clothes once again.

When I go, I'm often in meetings all day, so I usually want something that is not too high maintenance. So, if it's not work and room service, some of the spots I go to regularly for dinner are Zuni's, which is consistently good, Kokkari Estiatorio, which has really decent Greek Food. If I want something that really sticks to the ribs, I'll go to something like the Tadich Grill, which is essentially American food circa 1950, but done with modern techniques (sort of). If you are alone, the best place to hang out with random people is probably Suppenkuche, which serves huge portions of very passable, and fairly authentic, German. I've met and partied with random Germans (who also insisted on paying the tab, but I picked it up at the next place). Right beside Tadich Grill is Perbacco, which is good, solid, old school Italian, and Delfina (and the Delfina Pizzeria) are good places if you are going to the Mission. I am going to go to Locanda Osteria, their third restaurant, next week, and I'm sort of excited, since I've heard good things, and I've never been.

Here is a traveler's hint. If you are just beat, and want some good food, but really, really, don't want to go out, Mission Chinese, which ranges from good to really fantastic, delivers, and is reasonably priced. Only about 1.5x the price of regular Chinese takeout, and it's much better (albeit it's not anything that is traditionally Chinese). I would generally eschew Mexican food in SF. You live in SoCal, and unless you actually drive down to Mexico, you are not going to find better Mexican in NorCal. Some of the stuff in the Mission is really quite good, but it doesn't hold a candle. Colibri Bistro serves Mexican "cuisine" (it's actually not that expensive), and I go there mainly because it's close to the hotels at which I usually stay.

I've had a lot of Chinese food, and I haven't been really blown away by anything in SF. LA is actually better, but even in LA, the Chinese is definitely not at the level of Vancouver or Toronto, by a long shot, which incidentally, have the best Chinese food I've ever tasted outside of Hong Kong and mainland China.

If you are there, you should take a cab to the hard to get to Noye Valley, which is sort of a yupster neighborhood. The reason is that on 24th street, there is Chocolatecovered, which is pretty much the best chocolate place I've been to, anywhere. Jack, the owner, is an old hippie who knows everything about chocolate. If you are driving or have time to navigate transport, it's easy enough to get to, but for me, it's worth the nearly $20 either way in cab fare just to get a lesson and recommendations. Kiya, who really knows chocolates, told me about this place.

I bought the Ami "birds" cap because my inspiration or my motivation is to fly high like a bird not like Nelly Furtado or Bette Midler, but more like Superman Man of Steel. My goal is by the time the movie comes out, I would have shed a lot of weight in time for summer so I can peacock, I mean fly foo.gif

I drop them in when I want some change, so it's an honest transition not like a mannequin mimic or anything like that. There is no point in buying any more at this point is what I suppose I was trying to say. I'm sure you could do the same and cut off most future purposes.

A lot of places in the marina, go down union or chestnut. Pizza de la Rosa been one of my favorite place.

Soma street food park is cool for a bunch of options, ferry building has a good variety.

I think the one place that you should go to is Mission Chinese but your better off just getting it to go it could be a wait for a table if you go in the afternoon. There's also Ike's Place which is another great place to check out.
