sounds like a busy fun time!

Or, I could just pass out in the gutter on Market street and choke on my own sick. That's a plan, too...

hmmm, dinner at Zuni, pass out in gutter...
so hard to choose.

Hot sex with human pups - pass out in gutter
again, hard to choose

Hot sex with human pups - dinner at Zuni...
no contest... Dinner at Zuni AND sex with human pups

if you think you're gonna eat at Chez Panisse before you move, start working on a reservation soon, they can take months.....and what about the French Laundry?

Ooh! A mysterious anonymous voice from beyond gives me travel advice! No, no, tell me the next lottery numbers! Is my grandmother OK in the afterworld? I miss her...

and yes, she's fine.

Beard Papa is overrated. I wouldn't go out of your way to have some.

As for Chez Panisse, do the upstairs cafe. It's almost the same menu as downstairs most nights, easier to get into and I find it much more relaxing and enjoyable. You will still need reservations though.

If you go to the Golden Gate Bridge, skip the tourist viewpoint on the northeast side, instead take the Alexander Ave exit, go under the freeway and back up the hill on the other side. There's a parking lot about halfway up the hill. Walk toward the bridge through a WWII bunker and get an amazing view without all the pesky tourists.

Also, I like the view of the GG Bridge from Fort Point. If you go when it's open the rangers are dressed in Civil War Union soldier regalia with boots and all.

Thanks! These are such great tips...

Chez is also in Berkeley.

Zuni's not far from your usual hotel (around the corner from the Lone Star?) and they reserve about 30% of the restaurant for walk-ins. Easy to get a little table in the bar, also outside.

Delfina Pizzeria on 18th is a scene. Delfina Restaurant (next door) can be hard to get into. Unless, of course, you go with me. LOL.

I'm having breakfast at Primavera at the Ferry Plaza Market at about 9AM on Saturday. I dare you.

I'll be there at 9 am! I'll be wearing a grey t-shirt, black shorts, and a dirty red baseball cap. My cell phone is 303-594-9220

Oh Harley. You can always call me! Do you want to have some hot phone sex?

GREAT idea!

I love the view of the city from the Headlands across the bridge. If you are up for the walk across the bridge you will not need a car, if you can find someone with a car, or if you are bringing, renting, borrowing, there is nothing like the drive across and over to the headlands and the old military bunkers up there.

one of my favorite places to eat is Firefly - in Noe Valley. Beautiful, ethereal, imaginative and friendly. A great place to get away from the "scene" and just be.

Enjoy your trip. Your life looks so busy. Joe and I are headed to California for 10 days in July, I forget where you said you will be, but it was not near us.

Enjoy your trip - I wish I could be you for just part of it, it looks awesome.

Oh, one silly thing that I always love is walking down Lyon Street from Pacific heights to the marina... it turns into steps that seem to go right through the private gardens of some major mansions up in PH. it runs right along the edge of the presidio.

One night, at about 3 in the morning, a "friend" and I were looking for a place to be alone and we snuck under a fence and into the presidio from Lyon's steps, thought we found the perfect place and stumbled across a pair of high school boys getting busy...

They were so scared, and shy, and panic-ed... We talked them out of their panic, told them everything was ok, and walked away smiling to ourselves. I never did give that "friend" the bj I promised, but it still was an amazing moment.

next time ...knock on the door of yellow house at Vallejo
(up hill side) and see if Dianne F is back from her seante job

dinner on Folsom street

Go to The Fly Trap at around 200 block of Folsom. Incredible food. Near MOMA, I think.

Re: dinner on Folsom street

Sorry - it's at 2nd and Folsom... 600 block. I can't ever figure out SF addresses.

Sounds awesome. Congratulations on winning the contest for undies over at Bearotic.

Liked your tweet about all the plans, too. *GRIN*

Delfina and/or Zuni !!! Scratch Caffe Sport
