I'm visiting San Francisco for the first time on Friday. What should a New Yorker do in the Bay Area that will be especially exotic, relaxing, and fun?

I've never been west of Chicago and maintain a fairly high-strung East Coast mentality that I would enjoy dialing down for a weekend in California. I'm looking forward to this visit (Friday to early Tuesday) to relax, ease into the, uh, California vibe--whatever that is--and experience the things I've missing out on as a New Yorker.
I'd appreciate recommendations for a decent, not-terribly expensive sushi restaurant, some fun bars and restaurants in The Mission district where I'm staying with friends, favorite vintage stores, and any must-do activities that are authentically Californian.
Also, any tips on dressing for the Bay Area weather in October would be swell.
Head start: we're all attending some events at Lit Quake and the Vegetarian Festival. Thanks in advance!
