One of the many beautiful things about living in the Bay Area is the possibility of playing a pleasant 18 holes of golf a stone’s throw away from the Pacific Ocean (in the middle of December no less). However, one of the most scenic and affordable places to do so, Sharp Park in Pacifica, is facing a pending closure.
Night is falling quickly these days, and the chilly early eves are perfect for a mosey at this week’s back to back art walks in two of the city’s most happening ‘hoods.
The question always looms when visitors come to town – what are we all going to do? It should be an easy answer considering there are eight million things to do (and more) in San Francisco. Here are a few ideas to get you started...
Grab an almond croissant and a big bowl of coffee at La Boulange. Quiche, open-faced sandwiches, and lots of other decadent treats beckon from behind the glass.
If your visitors insist on seeing Fisherman’s Wharf, stop at the Musee Mechanique. It’s quirky, fun for kids (and adults), and free. Bring quarters to play the dozens of turn-of-the-century carnival games. A sourdough bread soup bowl is just outside the doors.
From the confines of our bubble, it’s easy to forget there’s a big, wide world out there. All it takes is one weekend, one step onto a plane at SFO, and one step off into a completely different land. Need inspiration? We present to you – Direct Flight.

Cheesemongers are great at their job if they successfully convey what the original purveyor would want us to know. The Cheese School thrives with these erudite cheese connoisseurs who teach a rotation of classes to the not nearly as cheese-educated among us. If you’re interested in expanding your knowledge of cheese, seeking a unique date idea, or crave an atypical night out with friends, The Cheese School a delightful (and delicious) didactic destination makes.
Foster the People’s buoyant pop sound is addictive, to tweens, teens, and Millennials alike. Apparently, even senior citizens love them.
The band’s sound is one that shines best in a small, intimate venue. Considering they have an album that is manageable from start to finish without getting annoying, their Outside Lands show a couple of months back was disappointing.
Not so at the Fillmore last night.
Foster the People evinces emo undertones without the cheese factor that plagues so many other indie rock bands, an advantage that makes them appealing rather than irritating.
