Anyone who wants to meet up in SF this February (20ish)? I wouldn't mind playing a session.

If not, any tips? Other than great restaurants where I'll pay more than I get paid in a week.

It's been many years since I was last in SF. So many that any restaurant I might remember probably isn't there any more. I think though, that the Buena Vista Cafe is still there, near Pier 39 I think, and a block or so from Ghirardelli Square, at the end of a trolley run. If so, you should stop in and have an Irish Coffee. :-)

Go see the Redwoods.

Muir woods is lovely, though often mobbed.
There are some great brewpubs up North as well.
I was partial to what is now Iron Springs.

I liked the boat trip to Alcatraz and the many science centre, such as the Exploratorium. They make better museums and art galleries than we are used to in Europe, IMO.

SF is a stressful city, though, with ethnic tensions felt everywhere. I liked San Jose a lot better. But there is less to do there.

My favorite city.

Most of it's very walkable, so walk it. Go down Market all the way to the Castro - swing by Dolores Park and back up through Mission District. If your feet hurt, you can chicken out and take the BART.

On a 2nd day, rent a bike and go across the bridge to Sausalito, have lunch and take the ferry back. Hike up to Coit tower. Make sure you go by the Palace of Fine Arts.

If you want to head to Haight and Golden Gate park you might want to get an rideshare to get out there.

Don't try to cover too much in one day.

For restaurants - my favorite places are Scoma's near Pier 39 and Tony's Pizza in Little Italy. Farallon near Union Square is exceptional. Been to many pubs - I usually get a Guinness at Foley's.

I'm there 16th to 25th, there's all 7 days of the week available, some of them twice.

Second the suggestion to rent a bike and go over Golden Gate.

If you like coffee, do try Blue Bottle.

Thanks for all the suggestions. We made a list based on pretty much this thread alone. We are flying in 2 days. Just in case anyone wants to meet up (we're there until the Sunday after the coming one), contact me via PM.

We went to Scoma's the first night, it was great! We're mostly just conferencing right now, will start going through the list from Wednesday again.
