My time will be somewhat limited, but I'm wondering what I can do in San Francisco that will make for a memorable experience in a couple of afternoons/nights in January?

I'm heading to a conference in January, coming in on the 28th at 10:00 AM. After getting to the hotel and checking in, I imagine it'll be 11:30 - noon. From that point on, I have the rest of the day to sight see, eat whatever great food I can find, hit a brewpub, do the things that make San Francisco unique. From looking at my schedule, the 29th is completely filled until 5:00 PM. I'll be cutting out early on the 30th as the two final modules of the conference don't really apply to me, so I'll have from 2:00 PM on to have a little fun as well. That gives me two half-days worth of... something.
I'm going to be staying in the Union Square neighborhood at the Marines' Memorial Hotel. I'm not a huge theater person, more of a craft beer drinker who's really active, into fitness, would love to see anything cool unique to the area. I'm big into trying out all sorts of new foods, especially authentic Asian food.
I'm open to any and all ideas. I'm even open to anyone willing to show me around for a couple of afternoons or even into the night. I want to have an experience in the city without having the business end of this trip blanket out my time.
