4th of July: San Francisco Edition

I booked a room at the Grand Hyatt in SF for the 4th of July weekend. I live in San Jose area, so I am somewhat familiar with San Francisco. What are some off the beaten path places to visit or see? Food/bars? Night life? Are there fireworks that weekend or just on the 4th? We have plans to visit Hot Italian in Emeryville, but otherwise we are just looking to enjoy the city instead of our typical single objective-oriented travel.

Get out of San Fran with Kids and Grandparents

2 adults, 2 kids, and 2 grandparents are celebrating grandparents 50th in San Francisco this weekend. For one of the days we would like to rent a car and get out of the city. I don't mind driving a few hours. I don't mind spending money. Tell me about cool locales / day trips that a 7 and 70 year old could both enjoy together.

how dumb would it be to sleep outside one night in San Francisco?

I'm planning a trip that involves flying into San Francisco and catching a bus the next day. I've heard that this city has a lot of homeless people. I'm wondering if I could avoid paying for a hotel. How difficult, dangerous, or expensive would it be for a healthy young man with a backpack and some camping experience to unroll a bivy sack under a hedge somewhere for the night? [more inside]

San Francisco Bar to watch World Cup tomorrow near Market/1st

I'm looking for a bar in San Francisco that is within 15 mins walking distance of Market and 1st to watch the England v Croatia match tomorrow (11am). I don't mind a crowd, but I'd like a reasonable chance of a seat if I turn up 15 minutes before kick-off. I don't care about food. I know there are lots of bars with TVs in that area. I'm more looking for recommendations based on personal experience during this world cup.

how do I see my friend in/near SF on a weeknight?

Bay Area folks, this one's for you. A friend I haven't seen for a while is coming to SF and I'd like to see them while they're here. However, it will have to be on a weeknight. Taking into account current traffic patterns (please don't answer this question if you lived here 7 years ago) what is the optimal spot for us to meet for dinner, accessible by BART from the city, and by car from the south bay?

San Francisco in March

I'll be in SF on March 16 - 28, for GDC but with several days before and after the conference to look at the city. What is worth seeing, beyond the obvious items? I like games, history, science, coffee, cocktails, and cats. I can't drive.
