San Fran tourist options

    I know they will be plenty. But Uma and I will be visiting San Fran Friday and Saturday for our Christmas getaway. Just a quick jump to the coast for a night at the Westin downtown and to watch Cirque de Solei under the big top down at the waterfront.

    We won't be there long, but will have most of the day Friday and until lunch Saturday to be tourists. MOMA is on the agenda and just a block from the hotel.

    Any other quick little downtown/AT&T Park area recommendations from CASportsJournalists.com nation?

    and, just to get it out of the way, a bathhouse is not an option.

    How far will you be from Lombard Street?

    The piers are always nice.
  3. I hear the zoo is nice.

    We were there with Huggy Jr. for two days in July. Lombard St. was cool - man, what a hike - and we did the Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf thing. We took a bay cruise which was great. Avoid the Aquarium of the Bay which was a fucking ripoff.

    The wife and I have talked about going back - minus the kid - since it seems there would be loads of great nightlife there.

    We're close to just about everything, but will only be there about 30-36 hours. So we don't want to waste much of the time doing Alcatraz. We'll hop the trolly and see Chinatown which is close and maybe Lombard and the warf, but if anyone has good dining suggestions or quirky spots to visit that are in the market district we'll let you play concierge for a bit.

    Be wild for a day and go to the Buena Vista cafe at Fishermans warf for an Irish Coffee.

    Does that come without the naughty stuff? :D

    Or is that just whipped cream? We'll put Buena Vista Cafe on the list.
