I'll be visiting San Francisco this weekend for a quick trip. Please help me put together a great itinerary that covers as much of the following as possible, but without being exhausting.
Things I want to do:
- Get some serious Christmas shopping done. Target audience: vaguely WASP-y (in the nicest way) middle aged folks. I'm from Canada, so there's presumably a lot of stuff in SF that I wouldn't be able to get back home.
- Go to a place that's very much about wine. (For me so I can drink some, and maybe also to gift to the above.)
- Get a bit of RnR. This can be in the form of a spa-type thing, or a vigorous (but, er, non-sexy) massage, or taking in a great play / comedy show / concert, or shopping for unabashedly girly stuff.
- Eat. I love seafood (oysters!), Asian foods, traditional Italian, tapas ... basically all of the foods.
- And of course, see sights, hear sounds, and smell smells that make San Francisco what it is!
Things I like:
- Food. Booze (scotch!). Cooking. Cheese. (I know cheese is a food but it deserves its own category.)
- Jazz. Preppy/poppy indie rock. Bluesy stuff.
- Venues/exhibits where I get to do things -- like, museums are ok, but science centers (even if they're for kids) are better.
- The silly/absurd: see where Full House was filmed? Cool! See where The Room was filmed? Even better!
- General geekery, used book stores, places to find Good Deals
- Lists, clearly.
Things I don't like:
- Uber pretension.
- Uber granola-ness.
- Ultra touristy things (which can actually be kind of amusing, really, but I'll be too tired from a long week to deal).
- Being cold.
- Exercise. (I mean, walking's cool, but I'm not going to go scuba diving.)
Please assume that I'm traveling alone, and that I won't have a vehicle. Please also assume that I'm on a budget -- I can do 1 or 2 splurgey things, but am trying to keep it wallet-friendly.
