Bob mentioned the Farmers' Market at the Ferry Building at the foot of Market St. They have an evening Farmers Market with music and other things going on on Thursday evenings during the summer. According to "Spirit" magazine (courtesy of Southwest Airlines), one the ads for finest seafood restaurants in SF was Sinbad's Restaurant, located just south of the Ferry Building along the water. My opinion of it is neutral. I think it has great views of the SF-OAK Bay Bridge, with a good mix of old-timers who enjoy their Petrale of Sole with baked potato and mini glass of Chablis...
Enjoy your time here, and prepare for the heat. I highly doubt it'll be Dallas-like.

Cable cars have become touristy at $5 per ride. Metro is now below Market Street(coupled with BART) and vastly improved. Public transit is great! You can get anywhere, anytime. In my younger days, I could pretty much cover most of San Fran by foot. We were up there in May of this year and the farmer's market near the had some great eats (but I don't recall seafood) but is only open on Sunday. I can't recommend a good seafood restaurant, sorry.

Have a Great Time!

?? San Francisco
Some of you, especially those in the great conservative bastion of
Northern California, have been waiting for years to tell me where to go. Well, here is your chance!
I am flying out to
tomorrow on ASCE Business. Starting early Friday morning, I can look forward to three straight days of meetings. The only scheduled fun will be a group dinner on Saturday night on San Francisco , the "world's only man-made floating island". However, I arrive early Thursday afternoon, so that is my only other chance to play. Where should I go? What should I do? What restaurants do you recommend? Forbes Island
During the 1970s, I visited
more than a dozen times for business and/or pleasure. Thus, I have seen most of the landmarks and experienced many of the drinking establishments of that era. However, my last visit was in 1981. I figure that, after a 25 year absence, there must be some new things to see and do. What are they? San Francisco
I will be staying in the vicinity of Van Ness and Pine. My only mode of transportation will be by foot, or possibly by public transit. Being a Naturalized Texan, I am somewhat suspicious of the latter. However, I do vaguely recall cable cars as being sort of fun and the California Line apparently terminates near my hotel. What is the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? Is BART a reasonable option, or do I need a taxi?
With respect to restaurants, my only interest is in seafood. I specifically want good seafood, as opposed to tourist seafood, like I remember eating years ago at Fisherman's Wharf. When it comes to seafood, I can only describe
as "Fish Poor". Dallas
Any suggestions you can give me before 4:00 PM PDT today will be sincerely appreciated. You can reach me at scaldwell(--nospam--at)halff.com without bothering everyone else.
Thanks in advance,
Stan R. Caldwell, P.E., F.ASCE, F.AEI
