Barbary Coast

Former Mayor Willie Brown Will Be Your Guide on the Inaugural Barbary Coast Trail Walk

Here's a way to show off your Halloween costume around town: by participating in this Sunday's Barbary Coast Trail Walk, where flamboyant Grand Marshal Mayor Willie Brown (who, along with other guides, will be in Barbary Coast costumes) will lead you through the city's most historically vibrant neighborhoods. Participants in this inaugural 3.5-mile walking event will meet at Mint Plaza at 9 am and walk through downtown, Chinatown, North Beach, the Embarcadero, then clear on down to the water.

A Toast, to the Good Ol’ Days

The city’s current Golden Age of cocktails continues to be inspired by the past. Drinking by today’s standards requires a high tolerance and a local history lesson. It also provides a great excuse to play dress-up.
