And, for a late night cocktail in Chinatown, be sure and stop by here. Fun place. It's just funky enough to be cool and has an interesting mixed crowd of all ages. My last visit was with a couple of Styleforum members for Mai Tai's and shots of cheap Chinese whiskey. My head still hurts.

Here some things to do:

Coffee: Get Blue Bottle, many locations in SF. But, the Mission location inside the Heath Ceramics is pretty awesome.
Ocean Beach/Sutro Baths: It will probably be foggy, but amazing to spend a few hours.
Marin Headlands/Muir Woods (if you have a car): Will be busy, but a real taste of Cali.
SFMOMA: The new sfmoma building should be open by mid-may so worth checking out.
Chinese/Dim Sum: HK Lounge 1 or 2, dont go anywhere else for dim sum.
Dinner: House of Prime Rib, make a rez now if you like meat.

Neighborhoods to spend time wandering (tpns of retail, bars, restaurants): NOPA/Divisadero, Hayes Valley, Mission, and Downtown.

I'm going to need to start placing pins on Google Maps just to keep track of everything.

@GusW -- I feel like those were featured on an Anthony Bourdain show, no? If not, they should have... lol.

@AntiHero84 Yes the Fairmont Tonga Room and the Li Po lounge were both on AB's SF show. But I would forgo Swan Oyster Depot, which was on his show, and head to the Ferry Building for better oysters and view at Hog Island.

If you like seafood and you are near the Financial District you might want to stop in California's oldest restaurant Tadich Grill. They have a counter (as well as tables) so it is ideal when eating solo. Nice old-school drinks, waiters in starched white jackets, fresh crab, nothing fancy but very good. The other true old-school SF experience is Sam's Grill for lunch. Get the San Dabs if on the menu that day. Again nothing fancy but classic. Of course there are many more more modern restaurants all around town but if you like true old San Francisco experiences these will do.

if you can, good food and good drinks but hard to get reservations.

Moved out of the city to the Peninsula (San Mateo), looking for a competent tailor if anyone can recommend one smile.gif
