    What do you guys think of Bernal Heights? I am thinking of moving out of Soma/Mission Bay.

    The place is more on the border of the Mission on Mission street.

    Bernal is wonderful. Lefty was askeered of it, though, so YMMV.

    Before you move here, though, you're not an asshole are you? :) Check out Bernalwood for a bit of the local color.

    Went to Manresa last night - all I can say is WOW. Can't believe I waited this long to go and definitely will be heading back there regularly. Most memorable part of the experience, other than the food, was some a-hole complaining about the truffle supplement. He was evidently paying for a party of six but had an issue with the server not telling him the cost of the supplement so he decided it was a good idea to have a tantrum for 15 minutes and continually tell the manager to "get out of my face". Class act. The manager handled it with aplomb and apologized to everyone else present.

    He still tours - and my wife and I really enjoyed watching him in a local hot-spot in San Juan Capistrano years ago.

    Currently, he is very booked in Europe this year. But you can monitor his 2014 tour schedule, where he will probably return to California.

    Hopefully some harm will come to him.

    I'm sure there are cranks like this in New York too. They just aren't as visible.

    Some folks choose to Love San Francisco. Here is one such reason:

    San Francisco to become Gotham for boy's Batman Make-A-Wish

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco is getting ready to transform itself into Gotham City to help make a 5-year-old boy's Make-A-Wish dream come true.

    In a rare move, the city and the public will participate in helping Miles, who is battling leukemia, become Batkid. On Nov. 15, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr will ask Batman and Batkid to help fight crime in the city. Miles will then get to spend the day rescuing damsels in distress and capturing villains before being presented the key to the city by Mayor Ed Lee.

    Make-A-Wish is inviting the public to participate in the day's events by joining Miles to cheer him on as a flashmob warns Batkid that the Penguin has kidnapped Lou Seal and when he is presented the key to the city at City Hall.

    ABC7 News will be on hand covering Miles' heroics and is even playing a special role in Miles' day. Stay tuned!

    ************************************

    Good for you, Miles, and the folks who are in on it with you.

    My best to all,

    David

    I do believe a certain menswear store is anxious about the Penguin ransacking their bespoke vault on that date.

    BatKid story is pretty great. Had some issues driving downtown this morning and didn't realize BatKid was keeping the city free of crime. In unrelated news, also saw my first live Aventador on the streets of the city - 20 something kid driving an orange without a lot of precision in SOMA.

    Sweet story.

    On another note my last NYer in SanFo friend has left the left coast. Once my wife and I left it seemed to have started an exodus. In the last six months three couples have followed us, the final yesterday. Her departing email, "I turned the lights off before I left."

    Gentlemen, the city is yours.

    You have to really hate SF to move back to NYC just before the onset of winter. I would think the pro move is to stay until March, no?

    Isn't that the point of this thread?

    Honestly, I really missed snow. City slush not so much.
