You know how much time can fly by when inside a shopping mall. It isn't so much the need to window shop for me that fills my time than it is all the walking. Welp, i spent nearly the whole day getting around financial district by public transit. It took that long to get familiar with the streets and witness some of the driving techniques.

Last night I took in the infamous hat show Beach Blanket Babylon. I have to say I'm really exhausted. Today I'm headed for Haight-Ashbury. I don't know what I'll find there. At least the Women's Building where the SF Zine fest is taking place was closer to where I'm staying. It just seems like it's the right thing to do to try to drive out to Haight. Parking's going to be a bear, I know. If worse gets to worse, I'll look for the Japanese Tea Park somebody mentioned to me.

"Today I'm headed for Haight-Ashbury. I don't know what I'll find there." It would be great if there were still some laid back hippies there.

Quite honestly, Haight-Ashbury is the only place I felt at home. I believe there still are hippies. It was hard to control my spending desire on the clothes and gadgets that some of the psychedelic shops display. Prices are way more reasonable than the glitzy shops in the financial district.

Where are you staying? How long? Sounds like you are not all that familiar... may I suggest some food? First, O'Doul's is a great deal...

http://www.leftyodouls.biz/

They're near Union Square from you, and I used to live on their corned beef and cabbage... they have great pub food.

Also if you're interested in exotic cuisine there's an Afghani restaurant on Broadway in North Beach which is owned by the family of the Afghani president. Good stuff.

HAVE A BLAST and give my love to O'Douls... OH OH there's three more absolute favorite places to eat in San Francisco. The first is a very awesome late night classic american rail car diner. It's a little further away (about 10 blocks uptown along geary to Polk and then a couple of blocks north to Pine Street. Grubstake is an eccentric piece of SF history its been there since the 60s.

Continue another block to Van Ness and you have "Legendary Tommy's Joynt" which is my second favorite dining pub after ODouls, even better pub food come to think of it -- in SF style.

This is a first for me. I'm only here for the weekend. I'm currently calling home the Hyatt Regency.

Thanks for the suggestions to favorite eats. I was running out of places to go, but wherever I turn, it seems I find another good restaurant to try. I ate at Capps last night before the show (BBB), and I'm still full after two bowls of minestrone soup, two servings of a salad, and the main course.

You sound like you either have family here, or you've lived in SF for a time in your life. Care to share some personal information about where you stayed when you visited?

Yeah.... I used to live there. I used to run away to SF from LA when I was 16 and that's when I used to go to the grubstake :)

That Polk St area used to be a big social scene.

Then when BF and I moved to California we were up there during the dot com era and then I moved finally home to LA in 2002. I still have some fond memories of SF tho. I've lived all over the city actually. It's an interesting place.
