There are lots of places to go to in SF for fun. Any small restaurant along Columbus street will be great--and a few in Chinatown, such as the Empress Palace.

For nightlife there are choices:

Clubs: Ruby Skye or go to and book ahead for a weekend event

Pubs: Any Irish pub or hotel bar near the financial district (close to Market and Montgomery streets).

Shows: Beach Blanket Babylon near Little Italy or Teatro Zinzanni near the Embarcadero or Hair at the Golden Gate Theatre or Circue du Soleil - Totem at the Grand Chapiteau at AT&T Park.

Comedy club is on Columbus between Little Italy and Fisherman's Wharf.

Or go down by Fisherman's Wharf or Ghiradelli Square and look for jazz clubs or just to hang out with the crowds. And pick up an Irish Coffee at Bella Vista. Trust me, you'll have no trouble finding things to do in SF.

It would help to know if you're gay (the castro district) or straight (the marina district)? Just stay out of the tenderloin!

Well, I'm glad you had a great time--and sorry our posts were so late compared to when you took your trip. Fortunately, it sounds like you had a great time anyway--and based upon your outgoing personality--it sounds like you are just the kind of person we here in northern California will be glad to have return not only soon, but also often.
