San Francisco - Fri 8/29/08
Today we took the muni (light rail) to the Castro, which is the largest gay district in San Francisco. The Castro spans for several blocks and has both a commercial district and residential area. We enjoyed strolling through the Castro and browsing in the shops. The place we ate at for lunch was great for people watching since it was on a bustling corner, but the food was rather forgettable.
On our way back from the Castro, we accidentally got off the muni at Civic Center which meant we had to walk an extra six blocks to the hotel - gee thanks Tom! LOL. Pic one was taken on Market St. between Civic Center and Union Square. Before heading to the hotel we hung out for a while in Union Square & took some pics.
For dinner we took a cab to the ocean and ate at Sutro's at the Cliff House, which is another of the restaurants that my boss recommended. Sutro's has floor to ceiling windows facing the ocean, offering spectacular views! Unfortunately it was a foggy evening which reduced the visibility. Delicious food combined with the perfect ambiance made for a memorable evening nonetheless! The bottom pic is at the Cliff House.
