A Traipse Through San Francisco

When guests come to visit, we take them to the usual San Francisco haunts they want to see (Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, North Beach, cable cars…), and for ourselves, try to walk new routes and find new things along the way to keep it fresh.

When guests come to visit, we take them to the usual San Francisco haunts they want to see (Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, North Beach, cable cars…), and for ourselves, try to walk new routes and find new spots to keep it fresh.  I confess, I don’t even bring my camera anymore (how many pictures of Coit Tower do I need?), but it was a first time visit for our friends from the East Coast; it would be easy to feel the day with fresh eyes.

We had both cloudy and sunny days:


Near Telegraph Hill.  Last month we shot video footage here for my new song “I’d cross any bridge for you.”  I love this spot!!

On the way to Coit Tower- we discovered Kingdom Cupcakes, ordered the chocolate assortment,  & took our friend Jimmy for his first ever espresso at Roma’s in North Beach.

Favorite animals of the day: sharks in the glass tunnel; Aquarium by the Bay- SF.

Succulent Dungeness crab- pick them up fresh from any Asian market. 

Deepwater isopods kept in the dark.

Art of the day:  Argentina ants at Fisher Weisman Studio of custom furnishings

“Wow Frank!  San Francisco cuisine is oh-so-big!  Chateaubriand, Giant Dungeness crabs, King Salmon! What shall we eat?!

“I dunno Bernard… the journey from Argentina has been long; anything my size will do.”

The most  inspiring discovery of the day;

The statue of The Goddess of Democracy in Portsmouth Square in Chinatown, begun in 1989 and is a replica of the same statue erected at Tiananmen Square to mark the protests of the same year.

It was a gorgeous day. Everyone is relaxing and playing cards and checkers around her.
