Paul’s SF Suggestions:
Go buy some books at City Lights and then have a drink across the street at Vesuvio:http://www.citylights.com/http://www.vesuvio.com/
De Young Museum has the Birth of Impressionism, which is a really big deal - you need advance tix, I believe:http://deyoung.famsf.org/
Go to the Tonga Room - it might not be around much longer. You can take the cable car, there, too:http://www.tongaroom.com/
Shalimar, my favorite Middle Eastern food (not that I'm any kind of expert). Not much ambience, but oh, the food. Cheap, too:http://www.shalimarsf.com/
After that, go a couple blocks down to Lefty O'Doul's for some piano bar action:http://www.leftyodouls.biz/
The new California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park is supposed to be pretty spectacular, haven't been yet.http://www.calacademy.org/
Buy records at Amoeba, take the cruise down Haight. I like Rooky Ricardo's too, in the Haight/Fillmore area. The guy sells some great homemade comps in different genres.
Gotta go up to the top of Twin Peaks if you haven't before...
Musee Mechanique at the Wharf is always fun. Get out of there after that, though:http://www.museemechanique.org/
Go see ECSR, The Oh Sees, The Fresh & Onlys, Sic Alps, and Ty Segall at Serra Bowl (Daly City) on Saturday 7/3.
Stop for late night burritos at El Farolito:http://www.elfarolitoinc.com/
OK, that should keep you busy for a while…
