Thanks for the link, John! S.F. will always be one of my favorite cities! Was stationed in Sacramento (about 90 miles ENE from From SF) and went often. Returned several times after I left Sacto)

I am heading out there in a few weeks (going to a wine country wedding).
Lived there briefly and have visited many times (Alcatraz *is* worth it) but it's always nice to read more little nuggets of information.
