    I'm going to be in San Francisco for a week around Christmas. Anyway, would like some suggestions if you can spare one or two on what I should do and where I should go for some local culture. Live music, chill bars, very cool bike shops, etc. I know it's a big town, and I don't know where I'm staying yet.
    Post to this forum would be best, all responses appreciated, even just to tell me I'm an a$$hole.
    Thanks,
    Adam

    Your an a$$hole. Couldn't resist. I've been up all night getting work done that is due tomorrow. Good luck in San Francisco, I've never been so I'm completely useless in this capacity and just taking up space.

    Check out www.craigslist.org it's got a lot of local SF type stuff, the site's meant for everyone but it turns out you never find out about it until you move to, or are planning to move to, SF. In the forums, the Travel forum always has some discussions of stuff to do in SF, including one troll who says "frisco" all the time but it's still useful. There are also stuff like Lonely Planet guides, you can find a lot with google. And if Google don't help ya well you know where you can go......

    Down the peninsula to mountain view and march right in and give 'em a piece of your mind! They're right near Shoreline park.

    Record shopping, clothing shopping, and get your bike to tool around.

    I am looking forward to my next SF trip with my fix ... as soon as I get my t18 cog!

    The best part about SF during Christmastime is (believe it or not) the store front windows. Go to the downtown shopping area (Macy's, Tiffany's etc.) and you will see elaborate displays in the windows. It's almost like a fantasyland, the way they set it up. Here you are in the middle of a bustling city and you are staring at a scene that reminds you of a small town country Christmas. The details are amazing, and it is as if the stores are competing. They also have the boats that sail the bay and they are all lit up. You might want to check when they do that. Bring a warm coat, though, or else you will freeze. Have fun!

    - Sunday brunch at Cliff House
    - any Irish pub you run across
    - Garlic crab at Thanh Long (pricey, on Judah st.)
    - spend an afternoon at Stinson Beach
    - moonlight stroll on the Marina district waterfront at 2:00AM (watch for the little Stilts that come out to feed)
    - are they still raving in SF?

    While you're here, you can rent a bicycle. Ride it along the Embarcadero, through Fisherman's Wharf, out past the Marina Green to Fort Point. Then climb up to the Golden Gate Bridge and ride across. Stop on the north side to admire the view, and ride out to the Marin Headlands. If you're still up for a ride after all that, ride on up to Larkspur and take the ferry back to SF. It's a fun day's riding!

    Re-reading your OP, I get the impression you aren't really looking for a bike ride. Check out www.yelp.com for lots of reviews of all kinds of stuff in SF.

    Actually, I liked the look of your posted ride suggestion an awful lot. If we drive, I'll probably bring the bike, fenders and all.

    I'm a little over the hill and family involved to recommend much. Here are a couple of resources that may help though. Have fun!
