Park & ride outside SF for a couple of days?

I'm visiting some friends in San Francisco this weekend and wanted to park my car somewhere north of the Golden Gate Bridge for Friday night, pick it up on Sunday morning. It seems like this will be a much less-expensive option than trying to park in SF proper. Is there a multi-day park & ride with transit down to the bridge where my car won't definitely be broken into?

Free Afternoon in San Francisco with no car

I've got a bunch of time to kill tomorrow afternoon in San Francisco. I'm staying on 7th Street at The Carriage Inn and my current plan is to just walk up the hill to the water, but is there something else I should be doing? I don't mind taking a taxi, but walking would be ideal.

Looking for an address from an old porn movie. San Francisco area

Was watching online the first porn movie I ever saw recently. It's from the 80s. I am reasonably sure this scene is somewhere in or near Potrero in San Francisco because there was a Ray Cicero Realty sign and I found out they were based in Potrero. Wondering if anyone is familiar with the area or has good detective skills. Kind of fascinated about the historical changes. Here are the (very poor quality) screenshots

Would you pay a small fee for a street cleaning alerting service?

Parking fines in San Francisco during street cleaning hours are steep in San Francisco ($71). Because parking is tight, my vehicle is not always parked on the same block and I usually just try to remember street cleaning schedule for the street I'm parked on. Obviously not very successfully.

Mom's day out in San Francisco

A new friend and I are spending Sunday without our babies in San Francisco. We are excited! But neither of us really know the city, and also we are used to doing child-centered things like going to parks or libraries or whatever, so our brains are mush. What do adults do in San Francisco besides the deYoung museum? Looking for offbeat, fun suggestions that don't totally break the bank. Thank you!

Looking for Union Square Restaurant Ideas

Coming to San Francisco next week for a conference and staying near Union Square. Looking for restaurant ideas for quick breakfasts, hour long lunches, and long lingering dinners within walking distance. I eat everything, and while cheap is good, good is more important. The only other time I've been in the city your recommendations for Bi-Rite and Tartine were spot-on, so let me know where I should go next. [more inside]

Place to store luggage near SF airport?

I am flying into San Francisco (SFO) airport early morning on Monday next week and have an entire day to sight-see before heading to Sunnyvale for work meetings next day. I would love to go see the Golden Bridge from the airport, however, I will have my luggage with me and it would be great if i could store it somewhere for about 6-8 hours and then pick it up on my way to Sunnyvale. Is this realistic and/or reasonable? This will be my first time visiting SF. Are there any recommendations where I can leave my stuff securely for a day? Thank you for your suggestions!

A chilled Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. What to do?

My wife, 12 year-old son and I will have a free afternoon and evening in San Francisco this coming Thursday. We fly in the afternoon before from the UK, will probably take bikes over the golden gate bridge in the morning, and we'd like to soak up a bit of SF in the afternoon and evening, before we head off on a road trip for the following three weeks. Yay! So what to do? Where to go? And perhaps somewhere relaxed and nice to eat in the evening? [more inside]
